If someone called you a 'Dreamer' would you be offended? Pause for a moment and think about the connotations; Head always in the clouds.

‘Only a few months to go and you’ll be finished and out in ‘The Real World.’ ‘Oh, you’ve finished Uni now? Welcome to ‘The Real World.’ What were these people talking about? The first comment came from a University tutor, the second from a guy at the gym. Both were made some 10 plus years ago as I was about to finish, and once I had completed, university. They’re just two of the comments I c...

"Sorry I haven't got back to you. I've been SO busy lately." Have you heard that line before? I'm sure you have. It's usually offered after failure to respond to an email, call or txt.

Take a look at the picture to your left. While it might not be everybody's idea of paradise, you could say it's a visual representation of a destination most people would like to be. House by the lake, warm climate, relaxed lifestyle and beautiful scenery. It's funny how everything you dream of having can be captured in certain pictures. So, just for a few moments, I want YOU to focus...

Have you ever noticed how life is all topsy turvey?  It's crazy. Deceit and dishonesty seem to be rewarded. Good people get taken advantage of and the ones who deserve a lucky break never get it. Hard work doesn't equate to success and doing your best often isn't good enough. Then there's society as a whole.
