JOB Vacancies Nation Wide to spread to those in need ......




I am aware that in moments of a day tears arrive in my eyes.

I am aware that in moments of a day tears arrive in my eyes. 
Maybe once a day.
Maybe twice a week.
Maybe feeling something from TV, YouTube, Music, or an observation in the street.
Sometimes the tears stay hidden behind my eyes, no liquid, but emotion is there.
I feel it there.
I want to feel them.
Also I want to understand them. 

I am going to pay more attention to these moments. 
Feel them more 
by reflecting on why 
* this moment 
* this thought 
* this memory 
* this feeling ..... 
to understand more who I am. 

The triggers that open my soul emotionally.

I am becoming more aware, as I get older, 
that I can't do all I want to do - can't deliver so much. 
I still have passion & creative stirrings in my soul but not the energy I once had. 
This means that I need to prune my priorities more. 

A sign always on my desk. 'STRATEGIC PRIORITIES'. 
Maybe I need to concentrate more on being than doing. 
Yet BECOMING developing changing stretching creating learning thirsting yearning are priorities.

I still want to experience and reflect on growth
which does not reside in a place called comfortable.

Yearning to become ……….

The Banquet

So who to invite?  Who will we call?

The flabby, the greasy, the insignificant, the small

The dodgy dealers, the guy on the make

The long-haired hippy, the new age flake

The red-neck farmer, the angry young man

The driver from the East in his dirty white van

Straight from AA or Her Majesty’s Pleasure

Looking confused, feeling under the weather

The bankrupt banker, who’s lost his mask

The exhausted office worker, weighed down with task

The stinking, homeless beggar, the tossed-away lover

The black-suited mourner, who just lost his mother

The orphans from war zones under the rubble

Walking like zombies, looking for cuddles

The quiet gay guy yet to come out

The courageous drag queen who just wants to shout

The woman on benefit, looking ill-fed

Who gives food to her children, goes hungry instead

The mumbling maniac sat on the train

The broke stock-broker walking home in the rain

The Big Issue seller sitting in the cold

The poor, the edgy, the weak and the old

The disturbed, the uncomfortable, the mad and the weird

The strange and the stupid, the crazy and the feared

The chain-smoking psychos, the ones who don’t fit

The ridiculous, the saddos, the grumpy old git

The imperfect ones whose beauty shines true

The ones with the cracks – that’s how the light gets through

The really normal people

The ones. Just. Like. You.

The Banquet

IF we ........ Don't share vulnerabilities

If we pretend &
Don't share vulnerabilities
Humans will only relate to what they see, our mask. 
The real inner you, 
who is nurtured by relationships, 
is  starved. 
No-one is relating to the real you. 

(Men - real men don't talk about feelings do they?) VIDEO


When someone gets up your nose ..............

.... it is the #behaviour 
we don't like …… 
we can learn to, 
not like, 
but love instead. 

#LOVE ……… 

I believe we can let love into our lives 
if we first 
#value ourselves. 
#Accept ourselves with ALL our imperfections - 

ME too
always will be ..... 
join me on the journey to learn how to love …… 
A Love that will not let you go ……

7 signs you might consider dropping the stiff upper lip

7 signs you may consider dropping the stiff upper lip and look for help

As Prince William calls for an end to 'stiff upper lip culture', we ask the experts how to tell when it's time to seek professional help

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental healthproblems in the UK and yet we are still known for holding a ‘still upper lip’.
Prince William has spoken out about the impact of holding our emotions back and the way this can affect our mental wellbeing, calling for an end to 'stiff upper lip culture'. But it can he hard to know at what point to seek help. Here, David Brudö, CEO and co-founder of personal development and mental wellbeing app Remente, points out the warning signs that shouldn't be ignored.

1. You lack motivation

On occasion, we might all lose motivation, whether it is during the 3pm slump at work, or because a particular project isn’t going to plan. However, a lack of motivation is a common cause of depression (even though most people will think of depression as feelings of sadness). Depressed people will struggle to motivate themselves to do basic things, from showering to cooking or going to work. You know you should drop the stiff upper lip if you are struggling with previously simple tasks, preventing you from living your everyday life. If you, or those around you spot this symptom, speak to a medical professional. 

2. You self-sabotage

This can be a difficult sign to spot and is usually brought to our attention by our loved ones. They might notice that you are picking fights with friends or partners, thus sabotaging the relationships. You might also start to act out at work, missing deadlines, coming in late or being argumentative with your seniors, which can be destructive for your career. The self-sabotage can also be more internalised, such as self-harm, or substance abuse. Once you notice this behaviour, don’t blame it on circumstances or your character, but seek help.

3. You go to extremes

Interestingly, worrying signs for our mental health don’t only appear as negative emotions. If sometimes you find that you are experiencing prolonged ‘highs’, or moments of extremely high energy, lack of sleep, extreme belief in your own luck and ideas, this could also be a sign of concern. Especially if you find that once these ‘highs’ wear off, you have to start apologising for your actions or fixing newly arisen problems. Talk to a specialist to make sure that you know how to control these moments and how to make your moods more level.

4. You quit your hobbies

All of us are prone to a change of interests or scheduling difficulties when it comes to our interests and hobbies. However, if you are finding that you are giving up things that have previously brought you joy, for no apparent reason, it might be time to seek health. A loss of interest, or anhedonia, is a common sign of depression and might not just be a slump in activity. If you can’t find a reason for why you stopped doing something you enjoy, don’t hesitate to ask for help. 

5. Your inner voice is always negative

We all have an inner voice, which can often caution us from some things and encourage us to do others. While it is normal for this voice to be critical on occasion, it is a sign of concern when the voice starts to repeat sentiments like ‘I shouldn’t do this because I won’t get it anyway’ or ‘I am stupid, I don’t deserve this’ or ‘I shouldn’t try as I’m not good enough’. If your thinking turns towards the negative whenever you attempt to do anything, it could be a sign of anxiety or mood disorder. You shouldn’t have to just ‘live’ with these thoughts, so seek professional help to break free of the cycle. 

6. Your emotions are too intense

We can all feel sad, angry or afraid on occasion, but if these feelings occur too often and are more intense than normal, it could be time to seek help. If your emotions are beginning to change the way that you function and you find that you are catastrophising – always imagining the worst case scenario and even avoiding whole events because of fear, it is time to acknowledge that your emotions are outside of your control.  

7. Your body aches for no reason 

A more physical and easy to spot symptom than the above, but if you find that you experience unexplainable pains and aches in your body, it could be a sign of mental illness. For example, a number of chronic anxiety sufferers will experience accompanying stomach aches, headaches and even a weakened immunity. If you find that you are feeling unwell for no apparent reason, speak to a professional to see if the aches are caused by a mental illness.
