Body Guard to Diplomats Killed Himself after Relationship Breakup

Posted by:

This story in the Daily Mail where a former Army Corporal commits suicide is really sad, and awful to think that in this day and age relationships combined with work and life still drive what seem like lovely people with lots to live for to end their own lives.

According to the story he took his own life because he was unable to cope with the break up of his relationship.  I won’t repeat the full story here, you can access ...

Billionaire Life Lessons – Perspectives from Media Mogul Ted Turner

Posted by:

I just had another Oprah Winfrey and OWN Network love in.  Today’s Master Class was from Media Mogul and billionaire Philanthropist Ted Turner.  Ted was the person who first introduced 24-hour TV news when other broadcasters said that it would never work.

He went from concept, to launch of the CNN 24-hour news network in just 11 months.  When you consider that this meant going from one reporter in one local station, to over 300 ...

Love. Why oh-so complicated?

Love.

Why does it seem to be oh-so complicated?

Either that, or it is one of the great lessons that we are here to live, learn, experience, and embody in this lifetime.

(This is probably my shortest Blog post ever, inspired by watching the Horse Whisperer, where 2 people that loved each other had to ride of into the sunset in opposite directions.  The other Blog I wrote this morning on Moments That Change Your Life In An Instant was ...

Be Who You Are – Chances Are They Won’t Like You Anyway

Posted by:

There was somebody I kinda liked but they didn’t seem to like me.  Nothing overt to speak of,  just a feeling and sense that something was off whenever I ran into them (not literally you understand) or spoke to them.

I found myself wondering what I could do to have them like me more, and then I had to stop and take a moment.

I was reminded of something that Oprah Winfrey said when repeatedly pressed to comment on the Iyanla ...

Single for the holiday season? Apparently one of the big fears and stigmas

Posted by:




WERE YOU SINGLE FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON?

Did any of my other single friends get ‘that look‘ over the holiday season after being asked where their man (or woman) was?

That look you’d expect to get if you just told them your favourite puppy had just passed away.

That look that says ‘oh dear your life must be so empty, unhappy, or incomplete.’

That look that somehow seems question what is wrong with you?

It almost felt like a scene from Sex And ...

The Accidental Rebellion. Are you living or suppressing yours?

Posted by:

The Accidental Rebellion & Living A Life That Is A Statement

I’ve never set out to be in rebel or start a rebellion or make a statement.  In fact, as a girl who was quiet and shy and lacking in confidence and low in self esteem right up until the age of 32, this couldn’t have been further from my mind, and, if consciously acknowledged would have sent me running for the hills.

So, how did it all come about?  How did ...

Sexual Abuse – How Those Patterns Can Unconsciously Live On

Posted by:

Sexual abuse.  How the patterns can unconsciously live on . . . . .

I’ve just had one of those big, and what I refer to in PhotoReading terms, A-Ha Moments.  I was talking to a client about childhood sexual abuse and explaining that in the world according to Marilyn Devonish, not only is it possible to ‘survive‘ it and ‘get through‘ it, is is also possible to thrive and live life knowing what it is to inhabit a space of ...

The Gift of Infidelity & How Talking Transformed My Life

Posted by:

“NLP and Hypnosis and what?????  I’ve been cheated!!!!”

So it was pretty much exactly 13 years to the day, in October 2000, that I completed my NLP Practitioner Training.  Although I’d read the odd sort of personal development style books (Feel The Fear & Do It Anyway, and a couple of books about how to deal with Stress), it was my first big in-depth personal development training.

I went into it feeling rather cheated.  I was studying to be an Accountant at ...

His Affair Really Did Make Me Stronger

Posted by:

THOSE CLOUDS REALLY DO HAVE SILVER LININGS

 

The whole thing about ‘Patience’ and ‘Unfolding’ has been a theme of late.

As another month came to an end I reviewed the achievements and completions of the past 5 weeks.  There was plenty to smile about and be grateful for.  There were also those things that I had put out there that hadn’t come to pass or as some would say, manifested.

There inevitably started to rise up a bit of frustration and annoyance.  I ...
