I'm an emotional person. I have big ups. but I have big downs.
When I'm down it all seems like I'm walking down a road in the desert with no end. Just miles and miles of the same old stuff.
I start thinking about all the people I'm not friends with anymore. The family I wish I had. The things I haven't done. The person I'm not.
I read a book about it called The Power of Now, and I felt like it was written for me.
I'd love to say I do everything in that book all the time, but I don't. When things get busy, or I worry about the future, or whether it's going to be ok, it's usually the first thing that goes out of my head.
There's a lot of crap going on in the world right now. A lot of it's not good.
But I wanted to share what I've learnt from good people, people like Ben Elliot and Eckardt Tolle and the many friends I know who are SO much more emotionally intelligent than I.
No person is an island. No one is immune to the challenges of life.
Most importantly, I wanted to let you know that if you need some help, I took advice from some really smart people and I've never looked back.
If I didn't have people around me to share with them when I felt like it wasn't going so well... well, I'm not sure where I'd be.
Just wanted to share. These are tough times, but you're never alone. There are always others who feel the same way - clients, colleagues, and friends - even when it doesn't seem that way.
