This message is not just for those who work in the high-powered high-octane world. The message of unplugging and reconnecting to our hearts, being quiet enough to hear our inner wisdom is for everyone, whatever your lifestyle or situation.

"Be like water," has become extremely meaningful to me, especially lately. I've discovered the less I force things to happen, and the more accepting and calm about my life's direction I am, the easier I can flow with and live my life.

As a human flight specialist and wingsuit BASE jumper, leaping from the Eiger was like a dream come true. It had been an incredible journey and, after a safe and successful landing, I looked back up at the mountain I had flown from and contemplated life in a new way.

No matter the twists and turns that your love life takes, your girlfriends will always be there to pick up the pieces and put you back together again. The housewives were insane, but they stuck together and got each other through the tough times.

Mother's Day is soon approaching and with International Women's Day last Saturday, suddenly everything seems to be about women, and Mums, and how much we really do learn from them. The people I look to for inspiration are all women, every single one of them.

I am a great believer that these are no coincidences but synchronicities. Two events that come together for a purpose. They may be to give us a message or they may be that a situation happens that moves your life in a new direction.

You are sitting there watching tv one night. The chest pains are back. Your breathing is shallow. Your left arm is now cramped up and you're suffering the worst case of heartburn you've ever encountered. You're having a heart attack.

So whenever this time of year rolls around and I'm getting reflective on what this year taught me, or what I can attempt to do better next year (as always: more exercise, less worry, more comfort-zone-exiting, less overanalysing) - I notice the random highlights that stick with me, the moments which remind me of the obvious 'lessons' I want to hold onto going forwards.

Water, Water Everywhere

Until we can come to understand that it is what we agree to, we will always hold someone else responsible. The ultimate decision is always up to you. Yes, some of us are easily coerced, but you are the one who chooses in the end.

Is There A Purpose?

Amy Anka | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Amy Anka

Everything does serve some type of purpose, otherwise it wouldn't exist. And maybe in life, to discover our own purpose, we need to just be still, let the winds of change and destiny take us wherever they so choose, let whatever is meant to come, come, and remove any pricks as they arise.

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.

A couple of days ago I was holding my baby daughter in my arms and something happened that literally took my breath away. I glanced down at her and was struck by how much she looked like her oldest brother. Her eldest brother has Down's syndrome.

Each child is an equal, with their own set of strengths and weaknesses and the best job any parent can do is nurture them as individuals and make sure they are fulfilled, happy, respectful and kind.

The funniest thing about today? My dad picked me up in an old transit van, full of newspaper, rubbish and dust from his working week and he said to me "You don't mind me picking you up in the van do you son? You must remember us always driving around like this when you were a boy?"

Like the proverbial oyster, we all have daily attacks of unwanted problems. We must learn, through persistence, to coat them and make them our points of strength. Over time, these trials will be transformed into "pearls" - accomplishments otherwise unthinkable.

Important Life Lessons we can Learn From Downton Abbey

For many of us - especially perhaps Liam Fox this week - escapism is everything. From boredom. From endless Loose Women. From feelings of being as vastly unfulfilled as a Little Chef chef. Downton Abbey is one such retreat. It looks nice, it sounds nice and I bet it would smell nice too.
