Moral codes

31 May

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that the moral codes we teach our children will be used by them as adults.

The hard part for any parent is standing back, whilst they watch their children change things in their lives, which they don’t agree with, but the newer generation seem to take a different …

Boosting our metabolism

30 May

Following on from my last blog on our metabolism, I thought it would be helpful to provide some more information on how we can boost our metabolism.

Drink water: We all know that drinking lots of water throughout the day is important, but did you know that this also has the effect of increasing your metabolism, as the metabolic process …

How things were

28 May

This is merely another observation on another experience. I believe everyone should know what they’re dealing with as a small child, particularly around a disability.

I’m not sure what I was more annoyed with, not knowing I had Cerebral Palsy, or asking me to do things that it was clear I couldn’t do. The signs were obvious. I couldn’t walk properly let alone wear …

Feeling on my own

27 May

I get to the point where I feel I’m on my own. I know it comes from having no support. When I look back at my life and the trauma I’ve had to deal with, it almost seems inevitable.

Living with integrity

25 May

Something inspirational:

“Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others.

Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.”

More health concerns

24 May

Over the last few months I’ve been working on my health issues, having various tests and working on diets that fit in with what I’m dealing with.

I have now found out that I have Dysbiosis, fungus/yeast and pathogenic bacteria in my gut, known as Candida. The tests have also confirmed I am low on a particular B vitamin and Serotonin …

Memories left

23 May

We don’t have to be famous to be remembered for something we’ve done, or said that goes down in history, which we’re not proud of.

Unfortunately, when we emulate bad behaviour, we begin to define ourselves in ways that can come back to haunt others, when we are no longer around. Choose to define your behaviour so that history …
