Government Needs To Wake Up And Take Responsibility - Or the Care Sector Could Crumble

Whenever we make mistakes, it is important that we take responsibility and set them right. When Government makes mistakes, it is essential that they do the same. This is particularly the case when the mistakes made by Government impact on vulnerable people or on an essential but fragile sector. I doubt anyone finds that a contentious thing to say - it's not hyper partisan or particularly controversial. And yet Government doesn't seem to agree.

Let's stop for a minute and appreciate this: Moonlight - a small-budget film about a poor, black, gay boy in Miami that took just 25 days to shoot - has won the Oscar for Best Picture - and Best Screenplay.

Something Within Keeping It Great

It is still a great country, as a close friend reminded me recently. I can vouch for that. But here's the thing: greatness comes with an admission of mistakes, a campaign to make reparation and the willingness to remember, if only for the purpose of avoiding previous mistakes. Moving forward, politics has to be about keeping America great. That's the spirit!

We Shouldn't be Scared of Failing

When you're shaken, bent on your knees with hands over your face; far too many times, we almost always accept defeat right away. However, failure doesn't teach us to accept defeat, it teaches us that every time we fall down, there's nothing more important than growing up and getting back up.

How to Spot If You Are a Perfectionist

When high expectations are held of us from an early age we can start to nurture an internal drive to meet the standards set for us and feel chronically unhappy or dissatisfied if we don't achieve the level of success we set out to accomplish. This develops into perfectionism in adulthood and results in the relentless quest for excellence.

Everyone has a different relationship with their home town, both growing up and as adults. Some can't wait to escape, others never want to leave. We all lead our own lives and must make these decisions for ourselves, so I would never judge someone for doing what makes them happy. But our home towns are just one tiny corner of a large planet, which has a whole lot of stuff to offer.

As we grow up we have this natural behaviour suppressed. Schools encourage children not to make mistakes, to get things 'right'. This continues through into the world of work, where the making of mistakes can be criticised and mocked.

In 2014 of course it is not really politically acceptable to assume that it was me that made a mistake. It is always someone else's fault; the bank mis-sold the endowment policy, the credit card company mis-sold the payment protection insurance, the council should have stopped me building on a flood plain, MacDonald's is to blame for my obesity and so on.

Don't Revisit your Childhood, on your Children

As the world evolves, so humanity remains essentially emotionally the same. All of it crystallized in sharp relief within the hellish prison of childhood.
