Cultivate

In 2009, myself and my family made a ferry crossing over the channel and from there drove to the south of France. It was the first time that I had driven on the opposite side of the road to what I’m used to in the UK and only the second time that I had driven... Continue Reading →

Positivity Through The Pain

Until it completely healed itself a few short weeks ago, I had been suffering terribly for months with what turned out to be sciatic pain. This pain started as an odd sensation near my hip, feeling numb and a little uncomfortable and gradually turned into excruciating pain shooting down from the top of my buttocks... Continue Reading →

Who Do You Trust?

I probably have a trust issue. It takes a long time for me to trust someone truly, but when I have invested that trust in someone, I will stick with them through thick and thin. However, on the flipside of that, if that trust is violated, then I struggle with the desire to maintain a... Continue Reading →

Sweating the Small Stuff

How often do you find yourself just putting up with stuff? I don’t just mean significant things, I mean all the small things that aren’t much of an issue, but over time they develop into irritants, and then they truly start to get on your nerves. The reality is that it would only take a short... Continue Reading →

Why Was I Born Ginger?

From a very early point in my life, I realised the power of asking questions. Why? Because more often than not I got answers! My favourite kind of book that I asked for as a gift for birthdays and Christmas was the kind that often had something like this as a title - ‘1000 Answers to...

“Plays Well With Others.”

In years gone by, I’ve generally been the first person to jump into a team building game. You know the kind, ”We need all 15 of you to get from this side of the room to the other, you can’t touch the floor, you have use of only three drinking straws and a cup, GO!” I’d give it...

Are We Different?

“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in His eyes.” (Romans 12:2) Our hearts are not meant to... Continue Reading →

Agree to Disagree?

Do you have someone whom you look up to and appreciate their input into your life? How much does it suck when you discover you don't see eye to eye on a few things, especially when these things are important and even close to your heart? Now, I think we can all happily get along...

The Way We Walk

A funny, possibly even a philosophical question, entered my head at the start of this week: Why do we walk? Nothing prompted it, I hadn't seen someone walk funny, or trip up, (which for some reason is always amusing so long as they don't hurt themselves!). I wasn't reading anything about travel or watching a... Continue Reading →

The Medium and The Message

There's an idea that I read about some years ago and I think it's incredibly relevant to the Christmas season. The idea is this: The medium of the message is as important as the message itself. Now, what do I mean by that? A simple way of looking at it is like this: I am... Continue Reading →
