What gets you out of bed in the morning? What floats your boat, lifts your skirt, puts lead in your pencil?
One of the greatest things you can do for your life is nurture your sense of caring about something, anything.
It gives you a defence from apathy and sleep walking grey-ness, and it means your days have meaning, bringing everything Alive.
We are always choosing our response to life, truly we are.
The trouble is often you have no idea what you are choosing. You are asleep to the big picture. The little kid that exists inside each and every one of our brains is in the driving seat.
When the adult wakes up, often that’s where regret comes. Here’s all about waking up to freedom of choice.

Here’s all about failure, courage, your mind, and dealing with it.
When there are so many opinions and so little examples of wisdom and truth out there, how do you know where to turn when there aren’t many true teachers, showing you what you truly need to know in life?
Who do you believe? Who do you follow? Who is truly wise?
What direction will ultimately give you the complete fulfilment that you crave from life?
