Has anyone noticed that things are a bit 'off' in the world at the moment? How do we set about course correcting? Can anyone come up with a solution?

A gamut of life lessons are embedded within nature. What we as mortal flesh take for granted has the secrets to most of life's challenges. My inspiration and focus of this topic is from a garden, a nice beautiful garden.

As I walked along another Dublin street last week, exactly three decades later, I remembered that younger me. And I reached out, back in time, to him: to remember him, and to bring him into my mind and my heart as I headed into the Mansion House.

When you make a decision of any kind, you are sending a strong and powerful current into the universe. One of the best selling books of all time, The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho has this important message "and when you want something, the entire universe conspires to help you find it". It's true.

Life Is Not Black & White

Born with Gaucher disease and battling for the last eight years with Parkinson's, I became an advocate for both diseases. It may sound odd, but my ill health has taken me on a tremendous journey, one which I would never have dreamt of a few years back.

I'm not sure how I've kept running at such a pace, being an advocate for both Gaucher disease and Parkinson's and it's hardly surprising my batteries are on an all time low. I am driven with unstoppable passion and commitment.

Today, I ask you to do something. Write a bucket list. And start working towards crossing things off the list. Think about what you REALLY want out of life. And love yourself for the person you are.

The Power of Hope

The corporate sector must play a lead role in helping to change priorities, to save our planet and create more hope. But this can only be accomplished if individuals within the corporate sector, and for that matter the government sector, are willing to change their attitudes, not be overly greedy and consider what might be best for those most impacted, those living in poverty and asking "them", and civil society, what they want.

Can media represent us all? Can we find the real beauty that is a woman, that is a human being and celebrate her? Yes, we can. If we make the choice to expand our definition of beauty. If we as women say, we want to see the reality and not just the Photoshop.

No-one Is Broken, Only Lost

From around the age of nineteen, I considered myself a broken person; I was an alcoholic, a prostitute and was plagued by a crippling anxiety disorder. Little did I know that one day it would all be resolved, proving that nothing about me was broken, only lost.

Don't let anyone laugh at your dreams. Or let them tell you they can't become a reality. Sick or well. People used to laugh at me all the time, which is fine, some of my dreams seemed fairly ridiculous.

I've been having a ridiculously difficult time in recent weeks. Months, really. Okay, longer than that, but that's not the point. Lately, it's been especially hard and to be honest, I came apart last week, not something I do easily or often, let me tell you. To be honest, I can't remember when I last ended up in that terrible place.

I marvelled as I saw the tasty specimens with seemingly high IQs and smiles that would make mother buy a new hat. Except. Hold on. Those guys who had viewed my profile hadn't then contacted me. They'd checked me out, and obviously decided that actually no. No, they weren't interested...

No Bucket List for Me

So although like most people, I have a "bucket list" I decided being optimistic at heart, I would need to call my wish list something else that was more appropriate, and so I have a "Pink List". Why a "Pink List" you may well ask? Well if you are sitting comfortably then I'll tell you why pink became significant to me.

But once again, those responsible for the attack on the Boston Marathon made the same mistake that all terrorists throughout the ages have made. They did not count on the resiliency of the human spirit. Just as in New York on 9/11 and in London on 7/7, in the midst of all the chaos people have come together and have shown that community is not that easily broken.

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered who on earth is staring back at you? Parkinson's is slowly stealing away my smile and expression. If I were a poker player, this would give me a distinct advantage, but other than that, it's very difficult for others to know what I am thinking.

Russell Brand has been calling for empathy for addicts, and he is right. Whether you adore or despise Brand's Marmite-like character doesn't really matter; you should still listen to him. He understands addiction. He understands addicts.

Yom Kippur 2012 is over. The Day of Atonement didn't bring any difference in the news we could find in the printed media. Do me a favor and check your newspaper right now. Ninety percent of the pictures and the articles are about problems instead of solutions, crisis instead of chances, war instead of peace. How come? Is there nothing positive to share? Is there no hope?
