Another universal thought

‘We seem to be heading in the right direction, we’re doing the right things but circumstances are still conspiring against us.’

I believe that whilst we’re in contact with others who don’t conform to the rules of the universe, the universe will always conspire to ensure those people learn from their experiences, even if it means …

The universe conspires

The universe will always conspire to work with us on the things we do that are right. If we do and say the right things, those things should work out.

When we do things for our own gain because we’re greedy or we think we’re entitled, the universe will have its own ideas on whether we’re entitled. When we look back in perspective, it is easy to see how we …

The Write & Burn Letter

Not everyone will have the opportunity to speak to their parents about unresolved childhood issues that continue to affect them. Whilst I would always recommend speaking to your parents, I do think it is important to get your message across in a way that allows you to get the best results.

When parents get so many things wrong, children end up with a list that can make them vulnerable to their own shortcomings. If you can’t speak to your parents because you know they’re not approachable …
