Sometimes you can go on, feeling a certain way for the longest time, and then in an instant, everything changes. Something shifts within us. And suddenly, we can't even remember the way we used to feel. We only know how we feel now.

After starting my day with a diet of positivity I find my whole outlook changes. And this has a knock-on effect. After all, if you enter a room with a smile on your face you're more likely to spread a bit of sunshine than if you go in scowling.

How Would You Like to See Yourself in a Year's Time?

If you were to look ahead one year, how would you like to see yourself? Would you like to see you exactly the same as you are now, or are there some slight, or even major, changes you would like to make to your behaviour, your look, your attitude or something else?

A Ray of God, a Ray of Hope for Afghanistan

In spite of the uncertainty we currently face, the endurance of my people throughout conflict, and in particular the resilience of women, gives me hope for Afghanistan's future. I pray that they have learned from this last decade and can use that learning to build a better future for us all.

Going Into Your Shell

I have been venting my anger and sadness through the written word. I email my friend, and send her my unpublished articles. "No. You cannot publish that." She tells me. I become frustrated. "You are trapped in a loop." She goes on.

Can a Person Really Change?

The more I've become the kind of woman I want to be, both in and out of a relationship, the man in my life has become even more of the kind of man that I really appreciate...and he was pretty amazing to begin with!

Old School Campaigning Wont Stop Extreme Weather

The social sector's moral authority was once its greatest strength. Now I believe it has become one of its greatest weaknesses. The belligerence that comes from self-righteousness may have got us to the top table in business and government. But now it is what stops us building the new creative relationships and ideas that can embed the systems change we need.

To Thine Own Selfie Be True

The selfie is so last year perhaps, but it's hardly a new concept: it's today's equivalent of the artist's self-portrait, in the same way that instagramming your lunch is just the current version of still life. Humankind has always tried to bear reality through gazing into its own identity.

The Trauma of Accepting the Truth: Why Climate Sceptics Are Like Religious Fundamentalists

Kester Brewin | Posted 03.03.2014 | UK

Like the early church, what we need are politicians and leaders with the courage to live out the future as it has been revealed to them. It is time to move on from debate to action, hoping that we are not too late, but also, paradoxically, welcoming the trauma of more violent demonstrations of climate change at the doorsteps of those who continue to resist what deep down they probably already know.

The Young Vote: Why the Youth Are Politically Exploited

There are so many issues which affect young people's lives and we are putting ourselves at a great disadvantage by not voting. How can you help to change something if you don't include yourself in political dialogue? With rising long term youth unemployment and trebling of university fees, now is the time to make our voices heard.

Don't Be Afraid of Change: Don't Fix It If It's Not Broken!

Change is a common process that happens throughout all our lives. It's necessary and important - it has to happen, regardless of what we think. Sometimes, we have no say on what changes and how it does that. It's easier to accept it and change with it.

On 1 January 2014 many people will have woken up with the intention of introducing, or removing, something from their lives. The good old New Year's resolution - that annual self-promise, often made in response to a single event that reminds you of how old, unfit or unhealthy you are becoming.

Now that New Years Eve is a few days behind us, lets take a moment to reflect on the annual celebration of the year that often feels like, 'On this night, you need to have the most unbelievably epic time ever or you're a loser.'

Today is the day that we fight this curse or rather lack of motivation and make resolutions that matter, resolutions that are for change, resolutions that give back!

Resolutions take determination, tenacity, strength and commitment. Too often we feel bad about ourselves or ashamed if we don't make it or delay a resolution. Whereas there is another way of looking at it.

"At the heart of it, we've become a culture of people who demand enormous results in a fraction of the time, but the problem with that mentality is that it leads us to setting unrealistic goals."

The comments on my petition show that a pay rise for MPs, at this apparently desperate economic time, is a huge insult to everyone who has suffered or is still suffering as a result of this current government. From pensioners to public sector workers, nurses to police officers - people across the UK are raising their voices against this rise.

The scale of the problems we're facing around the world nowadays clearly shows that our current model of leadership and way of thinking sorely needs a refresh. It requires change at all levels, but more importantly it requires change from each and every one of us.

Time is of the essence in a sport that is measured in the one thousandth of a second and to change all four wheels in under two seconds is a terrific feat by anyone's measure. Teams practice pitstops regularly and in Austin you could catch some of those practice sessions during the pit walk on Thursday.

It's that simple. In any situation, if you can stop, ask that question of yourself and accept that no matter how much you want to answer it with "well, actually, I didn't create this"... you did. If you can accept 100% responsibility for what's going on, you put yourself at cause and you immediately grant yourself the power to change it.

A year ago I went along to a three day re-educational seminar called Turning Point, delivered by best selling author and international speaker Dr Rohan Weerasinghe. I was blissfully unaware at the time that my life was about to change for good.

Nothing remains the same for any length of time. Life is constantly shifting and moving beneath our feet. And while on the surface this is a rather depressing thought, it needn't be if we learn how to embrace change and unpack its blessings. Because with each painful change comes the opportunity for new growth and new possibilities.
