Choosing Hope over Fear

We’ve seen what fear can do to our world, the economy and our wellbeing and this week we’ve felt what optimism and hope can create in our hearts. Why would we ever choose the former? We live in a world created by our emotions. Look for the good in everything that happens today.

Cheer up!

As a parent I’ve rapidly learnt that we are not here to teach our children but learn from them. This is none more apparent when discovering that children laugh on average 146 times a day, whilst adults laugh just four times. Does this point to the serious business of growing up or us simply taking life too seriously? …

Our Greatest Teachers

The financial crisis is one of the most profound teachers of our time. Whether in America, Iceland, the UK, the rest of Europe, Asia or beyond it is showing us that everything in this world is interconnected and we cannot survive without considering each other and pulling together.

Don’t Save the Planet

I’ve come to realise that we don’t need to “Save The Planet”. The planet will be fine without us. We need to save humankind. The solution lies in all of us taking 100% responsibility for everything we do every minute of every day in order to start healing our home, a home we are consuming …
