I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
Someone I spoke to yesterday used the phrase "being a slave to his own self-importance." It encapsulated something I've been thinking about this week.
I am still fitting in some teaching around the days that I'm not working at Founders Pledge, and this week I put on a d...
It is far too easy in modern society to feel as though we are failing, and popular scales by which we measure success are to blame.

Is our drive to make changes in our lives purely down to a lack of gratitude?
Is it the case that the grass is always greener on the other side?
