Despite the fact that I apologised in my last blog for not writing more regularly, I succeeded again in having a long gap between posts! I won't go in to my reasons, because quite honestly they are not important to you readers, what is important is consistency. On Friday I was on a course run by Sussex Business Bureau and I was reminded of the importance of regular communication.  Louise Fenwick, Zoe Cairns & Emma Pearce, specialists in social media and marketing, explained how social media is all about building relationships. People want to do business with people that they 'know, like and trust'.  It's the same in life isn't it? We all want to be around people that we 'know, [...]

I went to see the film,  'The Kings Speech' yesterday and I was very moved by it. It's about the story of King George VI of Britain, 'his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become King'.  It's a wonderful film and the relationship between the King and Lionel Logue is a joy to watch.

For example, every time we look at being in a new relationship, what's right there, may be thoughts and feelings about all the other relationships we've had in the past. If it's a first relationship, there may be inherited thoughts, or generalisations, based on other peoples experiences; such [...]

Listen to me!

I don’t know about you, but when I am very upset about something, all I really want is for someone to listen to what I have to say.  I don’t want them to  ‘make everything alright’ like mum used to try and do (and I catch myself doing from time to time with my daughter). No, what really works for me, is to allow that part of me to be heard; even if I know it doesn’t really make logical sense! When a part of us feels like it is not being heard and acknowledged, it will want to get louder and louder, until someone does listen!  And if that upset part of us doesn’t get acknowledged, our inner mind may well [...]
