I have a diverse taste in music so making a choice means looking through tracksContinue reading “Choose the theme tune for your week”

Both in strong Positions at the time they made their pit stops, they saw any chance of victory slip away. And how did they choose to react? They letContinue reading “Choose to let it go”

Choose Today

Choice can feel uncomfortable and challenging and we often choose to put off making difficult choices.  Too often people talk about regrets which are really choices they didn’t make.  As my husband celebrated his 45th birthday last week, we reflected on the lack of regret in our lives and how even the choices that hadContinue reading “Choose Today”

Today I choose to be….

Choose less – enjoy more

I felt slighlty sick as I watched the trolleys in my local supermarket yesterday; had someone forgotten to tell me of some major crisis?  Had I missed my chance to supply my family by not grabbing every last morsel off the shelves?  Would we be destined to starve?  Luckily, it was simply the long weekendContinue reading “Choose less – enjoy more”
