Gratitude

You have, so much in your life to be grateful for. Even if things are not going great, even if some bad things have happened, there is always something good in your life and something to be grateful for.

Even the bad things, are not always bad, we’ve just trained ourselves to see them that way. Sometimes the things we think are good, or a blessing, ultimately could be bad for us.

An event is never necessarily good or bad. We assign the labels of good or bad based on how we view and understand those events, and also how we they think they will affect us.

Baby Asleep

You cannot open a news website health section now without there one story or another regarding sleep.

Some examples:

The BBC reported recently about how bad sleep can alter the body’s chemistry: – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-21572686

I always take articles like these, and other ones on health, with a relatively large pinch of salt because often the research only looks at small groups and the results are rarely conclusive.

Before I go any further, I’m going to warn you now, this is going to be a biggie, so sit back and enjoy the ride!

Very recently, I made some mistakes. My punishment was my conscience. No one could make me feel as bad as I was already doing myself. It’s amazing how powerful and how levelling a conscience can be. I made some more mistakes and the process repeated itself. We all make mistakes and we all have our […]

I received a question from a reader recently who asked me about how they can become more funny. I’m not the most funny person in the world but I can hold my own on stage I was performing at a comedy event recently and I was on stage with some amazing comedians and talent. I […]
