In your cornerThis is the place to come for inspiration, motivation and rest. Successful people have failures. That is how they achieve their successes. But sometimes in between successes we forget what we knew that helped us achieve what we wanted. When you forget, or are just too tired to care, come have a wander around here. We're in your corner. We all need someone in our corner when we feel bruised and battered.

Today I’m having one of the most coveted experience a person could ask for. I’m in Cannes for the film festival. The sky is blue. The temperature is perfect. And if I want to I can dress up and go … Continue reading
I don’t know where I stumbled on her, but Kris Carr’s story resonates with me. She has written some books about health and about the care and feeding of her cancer. She found out she had/has cancer about 10 years … Continue reading
