To be clear, I didn't leave my job in a rude way and stomped out. No, I had mixed emotions about leaving my job. I care about many of the people there, had wonderful opportunities and enjoyed much of the job itself if I am honest.

To the People Who Try to Keep You Small.

It takes a lot to lay your heart out on a platter, hopelessly preparing yourself for the vultures to attack. To put yourself in the firing line and risk losing your passion forever. To wait for that lethal knock to your confidence, the bruising of your ego.

With five out of seven days being ones you get up and go to work (over 70%), this really is one of the biggest parts of your life and you have to make sure you can look in that mirror every morning and say 'yes, this is what I want to do, this is what I want to get up for'.

For Zlatan

Zlatan does not know who I am. There is no reason why he should. But then, without Football, the world would not know who Zlatan is. Football, genius and valour have granted him an opportunity to catalyse a movement bigger than the game. Bigger than the UN. Bigger than Zlatan.

Like lots of people I had a dream to travel the world. Not in bite size two week trips. I wanted to really travel and have the luxury of getting to know a country inside and out, to do yoga in India, stay with tribes in Vietnam and generally be a bit of a hippy with an income that required little work.

My Bucket List...

Liz Fraser

This, for some reason, seems to be a much bigger deal than turning 39, even though it requires the same amount of effort on my part, ie none. A lot of people have suddenly started asking me about my Bucket List, as if turning 40 wasn't already bad enough without also implying certain death.

You couldn't say Brazil were going home as you would for other teams who failed to make it through the knock-out stages. Brazil were at home. This was their country. This was their tournament. This was meant to be their Cup.

A Day In The Life In My Head

Most mornings I try to drag myself into a sitting position to practice mindfulness. I do this because if I delay and say to myself, "Later," I'll never do it. My body craves to stay prone, probably forever. But sitting up and following my breath, I can check my internal weather conditions and if I don't check in, they'll unconsciously influence everything I do in the day.

Feminism is a complex concept, and the lot of a parent is a guilty one. While I hope my daughters will never feel cheated of success because of their sex, I also hope they will embrace the sisterhood and wear their pinnies with pride - over their work clothes.

As we grow up many of us dream of that day when we're all grown up. Hoping for a successful career, a huge house, loads of friends and everything being perfect like it always is in those films (at least, in the end). The reality is being an adult is tough. You know you're an adult when...

Like Martin Luther King, I have a dream. It is a dream that recurs with alarming regularity, and when I reveal the nature of it, you will understand why it upsets me, although you can probably guess the nature of the dream from the headline.

I roll over and look at my wife, she is staring hard at the ceiling, I recognise that look - unless I'm very much mistaken that's her "I've-just-tutted-to-wake-you-up" look. "Did you just tut?" Silence. "Are you okay?" "I'm FINE" *Tut* "Have I done something wrong?" She gets out of bed and starts stomping round the bedroom, viciously pulling the curtains open.
