My Facebook feed has been inundated with status updates about how horrible the year has been to people. This is followed by how glad people will be to see the end of it and how much they want 2017 to be better.

There has been […]

I’m standing on the edge of a high rise about to leap off the side. I know I’m ready to step into the air because my wings are waiting, fully built, ready to unfurl and take me flying.

Positivity – Loving yourself first

Have you ever found yourself automatically thinking about the worst thing possible about something that has gone wrong in your life? Inside your head you immediately hear things like, “what were you thinking, you know you’re stupid”, or “nothing ever works out for me”. You don’t have to put up with things like this forever.

Every time you hear these messages they are reinforced and as you grow older they become set.
