And out of chaos comes....

Our house is a bit chaotic at the moment – Steve and I are reorganising how we use our space, making room for new and revived interests and hobbies, clearing away things we no longer need or use and reorganising our office set-up.  It’ll be great when it’s all done, but...

What if you had all the confidence you wanted?

Can you imagine how it would be if you were calm and confident in every situation?  Imagine discovering the "off"  button for that negative, self-critical voice you hear in your head?  What would you do?  Where would you go?  What would you achieve?
