What’s Around The Corner?

"'In your anger do not sin': Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold." (NIV) This scripture always stops me in my tracks. I think I should probably reflect on it every evening.  The Digital Revolution has created a world where our communication can [...]

The Price Is Right?

Last week, my Dad and I were working, and we were asked to clean some extra plastic on a customer's conservatory roof. I can’t remember the name of the fancy shapes on the roof, but they were curving and twisting pieces of plastic, put on for (supposedly) aesthetic effect, and they were covered in green [...]

Holding Tension

Something I’ve been trying to work on in my meditation practice is holding the tension of uncomfortable thoughts and emotions. Over the past few months of difficulties with my mental health, I’ve perhaps run from difficult situations and emotions. Rather than try to confront them in my fragile state, it was better to run from [...]

Brainstorm

Do you brainstorm often? At the moment, now my uni degree is over, I’m thinking about my future. I want to start my own business and have so many ideas bouncing around in my mind. Something I’m trying to do is short and frequent brainstorming sessions. If they’re much longer than half an hour, my [...]

Take A Moment II

“Do What You Love”

Last week, I listened to this podcast interviewing Gordon Smith-Durán. I’ve followed Gordon and Cynthia’s work at Lightspeed Spanish for many years now. It was my go-to resource for Beginner and Intermediate Spanish learning on Youtube, when I first started learning Spanish 9 years ago! I found this interview with Gordon when I was looking for the [...]

People That Take

Unfortunately, some people are "Takers" and fail to give to those around them - materially, emotionally, in friendships and relationships. These people drain energy from the room, conversations and even out of others. Some uni friends have experienced this with one of their housemates over the past year, and it has created a very unhealthy [...]
