my mother's birthday. The doctor called my parents in to break the news to them. "From the brain scans, we can see that your daughter's lower brain area is completely gray." "Our conclusion is that she had a stroke," "I am sorry to inform you this, but the brainstem is so severely damaged that she would not be able to move voluntarily at all for the remainder of her life."

I've long told bemused friends that I'm not afraid of being haunted and that I actually think it would be quite cool if it happened. Whilst some say that they would rather die themselves than be visited by the dead I don't see what all the fuss is about.

I think that that is one of the most dangerous things we as human beings can do.

There are days when I feel so ill from treatment that I want to just lie on the sofa, but I still force myself to get up and dressed and take our lovely rescue dog for a walk because it is so important that there is joy (and nature!) in every day.

Can you communicate without nagging? Especially when someone neglects to do their bit, at home or at work? Or when there's a difference of opinion? Or when someone really irritates you? Do you quibble? Quibble is what we do when we find fault with small things, it's nit-picking unnecessary details.

At the start of 2016 I made a promise to myself to cut out the negative self-talk and just be unapologetically me. I have literally wasted YEARS of my life trying to fit in or to be someone else and now that I'm discovering who I am, I rather like myself.

It's time to cut the crap in more ways than one. Vince Lombardi has been for many years a hero of mine. I was so surprised and delighted that many of the things he had achieved and had said made it into my friend's wedding just last week.

Many of us remember the tougher moments in the last year but rarely stop to reflect on everything that has gone well, made us feel good and even proud of ourselves. It's important to appreciate the good things in life as well as to learn from the bad experiences.

Niggling worries, pesky negative thoughts, or just a general sense of "bluishness" can be trickier to shake off than in the lazy hazy days of summer, and just occasionally we can find ourselves floundering in the (metaphorical) murky waters of a wintery night...

It has taken me six years and a hell of a lot of dedication but, I am slowly becoming the person I once was. In fact, I'm becoming more than I once was.

Abby-Jo is thirteen years old and has a pretty vicious form of cancer which is waging war on her body. She is currently on a drug trial which brings with it some hope but also brings hideous side affects which make the poor kid feel like she's in some sort of washing machine of doom.

I want to spread the word about this young lady and see if we can't all be a little inspired by her grace and courage.

We are all able to choose to support ourselves, to be compassionate and loving toward ourselves. The way that we behave toward ourselves is the most important message that we are communicating to the rest of the world about what we expect from the people that we invite into our lives.
