My First Half Marathon 

I’ve signed up to my first half marathon… I am very much a beginner in the world of running but thought that it would be a great challenge and it has been something that has been on my bucket list for a while. So when I saw the event advertised I thought “Why not? There’s […]


Many see Monday as a challenge but how about adopting a new way of looking at it – as a fresh start to the working week. No matter how it has started today, it’s not too late to dig in and begin a new journey of success.

Courage like a Muscle

“Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it by use.” Ruth Gordo Make sure that you flex your courage muscle daily. That way when you really need it for something really scary or daunting  it will be highly developed through daily use. Doing something courageous each day means finding something that you’re fearful of and overcoming […]

When Things Do Not Go Well

The first words that many people like to quote when misfortune hits are: “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” Romans 8:28 But that’s hard to believe in hard times. I once sat with a woman who had […]

100 Years

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” A. A. Milne This is from the author of the beloved Winnie the Pooh books. For me it sums up what it’s like to have a friend, relative or […]

Change In The World

House verses Home

“Everyone needs a house to live in, but a supportive family is what builds a home.” Anthony Liccione Something to remember: You can live in any house, but a loving and supportive family is what creates a home. Without laughter, joy, or companionship, a house is but an empty shell. Giving and receiving support from […]

A Beacon

When a helicopter crashed in a cold, mountainous wilderness, the pilots survived but were seriously injured. The frozen afternoon turned into a colder night. The situation seemed hopeless; until a rescue helicopter appeared, its searchlights illuminating the darkness. It spotted the wreckage, landed nearby, and carried them off to safety. “How did you know where […]

Responding to Life

“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”  Charles Swindoll This is an important quote to remember whenever that you think life is against you. Life presents you with experiences and it’s you that makes them positive and/or negative. Try to not get into the mentality that […]
