Dog Walks And Planning Thoughts

We’ve been seeing much more of our dog recently.   I say our dog, he’s Kay’s dog. When she and her husband separated.  They decided Rodney, (the dog’s name, not her ex-husband) should live with Kay’s parents. He’s not great alone and he’s not a fan of being in the car either.

Stop Beating Yourself Up (Nobody Else Does)

This Wednesday was World Mental Health Day and it got me thinking about the way we treat ourselves and the way we treat others and the gap in between.   One weekend last month I was really lucky and played a lot of golf.   I played 9 holes on the Friday night, 18 Saturday, […]

Stop Being Your Own Critic And Start Being Supportive

We are our harshest critics.   There’s no one else in the world who will find fault as often and as discriminately as we do to our selves.   It’s good to look back on what we’ve done and learn from our mistakes but there’s a fine line between being critical and being cruel.   Next […]
