The Hardest Battle….

We were given the right pair of glasses to view the world through – they weren’t rose tinted and they weren’t dark and sombre shades either, they were perfectly, beautifully, CLEAR. We all learned that, whatever happens in life, it’s how you view it and process it in your own mind that will make the difference – your experiences are based on your perceptions…..

Be honest. Is it just me?

I can’t help but wonder if the people that put out these ‘quick and easy’ weight loss plans actually think about the people they are supposedly trying to help; if something is so ‘quick and easy’ how does it make the people feel who don’t shrink down to a size 10 in a couple of months?

The idea is to come up with song lyrics which, for you, best match the theme – in this case ‘Let Go’. My choice, which may, at first glance, appear not to make one iota of sense is Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes….

Am I Dead Inside?

I just don’t seem to feel anymore, do you know what I mean? It’s not as though I don’t have feelings anymore; I can feel happy or sad or pissed off or whatever but there is nothing truly deep. After I lost my husband, over 4 years ago now (time which has seemed like eons and the blink of an eye), something that once resided in my very core just isn’t there anymore…..

How Much Are You Worth?

So my question to you is – what do you think you are worth? If your blog posts were tangible things where would you sell them – the local market, a department store or would you create and build your own Blog Store? Perhaps I’m really asking what price do you put on yourself…………
