The reality is, not everyone keeps their promise.

The reality is, people will let you down

The reality is, your most trusted will abandon you when you need them the most.

The reality is, life can, and often does present itself as one big let down.

One disappointment after another

One challenge after another

One frustration after another

Where have all the good people gone, I cry, where have all the good people gone?

It’s very easy to lose hope

To feel helpless

It’s very easy to question the meaning and purpose of it all

And to lose faith.

It’s very easy to stop trusting

And to go on living with fear of this or that

To be gripped by bitterness and resentment

Tragedy and despair.

Life makes it easy to want to quit on yourself and on others.

But yet there is something that keeps keep you going, 

Something burning deep inside, a flame that won’t go out

Flickers of hope, that won’t let you throw in the towel

Reminding you that you’re still here, still in it.

There’s something whispering in your ear, telling you to get up, dust yourself off and go again.

Telling you that there is still much to live for

That there is much work still to be done

That the world needs you.

When you find yourself in darkness, it’s very easy to lose sight

But sometimes all it takes is to switch on a light.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
