In your cornerThis is the place to come for inspiration, motivation and rest. Successful people have failures. That is how they achieve their successes.

We all need someone in our corner when we feel bruised and battered.

“It is hard to be brave,” said Piglet, sniffing slightly, “when you’re only a Very Small Animal.” Rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: “It is because you are a very small animal that you … Continue reading
I struggled to come up with a title for this blog because after a little drought, a lack of inspiration for a new post, suddenly I was bombarded with things to write about. After hearing someone tell me of their … Continue reading
