Worldly contradictions … Read more Being Single
We go through life with differing attitudes, our expectations can be positive, negative or a combination of both, depending on our past experiences, emotional/spiritual state and how we choose to deal with others. The saying “misery loves company”, is true, therefore it’s possible for miserable people to attract others and have a relationship. However, in … Read more Don’t Settle
October was an interesting month. Mainstream media was lapping up the polarising comments and (obviously parental assisted) mission of Greta Thunberg. There was the both annoying and disruptive, ‘coming out’ of those (with more money and time on their hands, than sense) XR Cult members, a.k.a. Extinction Rebellion. The continual 2-Party US political war, continues, … Read more October 2019, BHM, Greta, XR, POTUS and countdown to Brexit?

I was scrolling down my Twitter home timeline recently and I saw a conversation between two women concerning broken men and relationships.

We all know that ‘brokenness’ is not a preserve … Read more Positive emotional expression.
Still on my break from the books, I thought I would share another encouragement piece. Riches…The word provokes very strong emotions in people, for a number of obvious reasons. Are you of the camp which believes you either are or you’re not rich? Or maybe you think more expansively, believing that riches are subjective and … Read more The Rich List
Taking a short break from the books, if you enjoyed ‘I decided’ I hope you enjoy this… I couldn’t, being born and raised in England, hate White people. I couldn’t, having a Black mother and wife, hate Black women. I couldn’t, loving my mother, wife and 3 daughters, be a misogynist. I couldn’t, share and … Read more I couldn’t
Occasionally you read an article or quote, or hear someone on TV say that they don’t see colour. I think it’s one of the most ridiculous things that anyone can say, in an attempt to seem inclusive and ‘non offensive’. It’s a fact of life, human beings, whether male or female, come in various shapes … Read more Love and colour

Unless you’ve been on walk-about in the outback or went off-grid in some remote Southern hemisphere rain forest for the last couple of years, you would be well aware of the Brexit “situation” Britain finds itself in. As human beings, our relationship with politics is a funny one. * Some see it as the so-called … Read more Britain, Brexit and Politics in general
Tennis and Football(Soccer), have always been sports I’ve enjoyed, both playing and watching. My footballing days are well and truly over but I still love to get out and play tennis when I can. I’ve been very impressed by the young American tennis duo at the 2019 US Open, Catherine McNally and Coco Gauff. They … Read more Team #McCoco and @g.e.m.s.life
I decided to first, remember the poor choices and mistakes I’ve made myself, in order to look at others and love them as God loves them.
