Well, this is a difficult one to write.  This year started off painfully.  I didn’t have any clear goals or maybe I did but I wasn’t motivated to do them.  I had a formula (or so I thought) on bringing my mojo back but sometimes it’s easier said than done.  It’s always about getting yourself […]

So I woke up this morning in what potentially could have been a foul mood for no apparent reason. I know I am about to hit that time of month and I always monitor my emotions. To say that periods don’t affect women is a farce. That said, it can be managed but it starts […]

I’ve been speaking to a lot of people about broken relationships over the past few years. I won’t call them “failed” because we know most relationships can be solved if they really want to, that is, if BOTH parties want to. And that takes work and effort. This goes back to how love is a […]

My first encounter with Spain was in 2012 where I visited Barcelona, Figueres and Madrid (BFM!). At my final stop in Madrid, I headed out to Castille y Leon on a program called Vaughantown where I spoke English to Spaniards. We are placed in a boutique hotel and the Spaniards are not allowed to speak […]

In the end, I went for six sessions (yes, I need help). Leading up to the sixth session, I could feel the effects already. My clothes were getting looser around my midriff and more firmer. This has been impossible previously despite watching my diet (maybe not very strictly) and exercising. There was definition in my […]

Of late, I’ve been having these thoughts about people and situations. If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t be able to get the contacts. If it wasn’t for me, you wouldn’t be able to get that project. If it wasn’t for me, this would not have gotten off the ground. If it wasn’t for me, […]

How has 2015 been for you? Mine has been great. Not because I have had so many wonderful things happen to me. On the contrary, pondering on the months, I have experienced betrayal, rejection, anger, rage, disappointment, sadness, bitterness, envy, annoyance….should I go on? If I were to sit down and give you a blow-by-blow […]

Risin’ up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance Now I’m back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive I have heard that when the tiger is ready to attack, it only has the attention of its chosen prey with all eyes on its unfortunate […]

Office politics…I absolutely hate it. I hate it with a vengeance. I had this heated discussion about this topic with a friend recently. He’s giving me tactics and strategies on ways people get ahead. I stopped in my tracks because there may be elements of truth in it but I’m not sure I like the […]

What a week it’s been! It started off with many challenges. And at the end of the week, it was back at my old work place, a reminder of why I do what I do now. I was there for over 10 years so there were obviously more good times than bad. That is life, […]
