What's Your Primary Purpose?

If managing your thoughts and feelings is not the primary purpose of your life, maybe it's time to give this subject some consideration. Some day the roof will come crashing in on your life, as it does with all of us. How we manage our thoughts and feelings during the calmer times in life  will have an enormous effect on how we think and feel during troubled times. This holds through no matter who or what you are. Whether you are the president of the United States of America or living on the streets of Calcutta, the Queen of Connemara or the Pauper of Seville.

Time Out and Christmas Survival


As always I hope you are well and happy and not letting your thoughts and feelings get you down. Especially at this time of year.

A Bag of Nettles


Just Like a Monday
Sometimes life can be a real bag of nettles. It can seem impossible. For some life is unbearable. But you are not helpless and you don't have to keep getting burned. I wish you well and hope you find help and comfort on this page. I wrote a song in the 1980s called "Just Like a Monday" and the lines still hold through today:

"It's nothing you did that makes me feel sad.
It's nothing you said that makes me feel bad.
I just feel blue, blue, blue just like a Monday".

5 Seconds to Peace of Mind

Wishing you welland happy...
Peace of mind is only seconds away. In fact you can, if you want it bad enough, achieve it in the blink of an eye. Here's a little exercise to help you on your way. If you practice this regularly you will be amazed at the results. The more you do it the easier it will be for you to go to that quiet peaceful place within yourself at a moment's notice.  And it only takes seconds to learn and do.

Wherever you are right now. Just close your eyes for a few seconds.

You'll find more training on how to do this on this site. You can also share with me at anytime, you'll find my contact details also on this site.  

For now, I want to share a bit of amusement with you, a lesson in economics that hopefully will bring a smile to your face. It's the story of how the people of Bailenabpócaífolamha (The Town of Empty Pockets) in the mid west of Inishuptotheireyeballs managed to clear all their debts.

Love and Togetherness are Not Just for Valentine's Day

Greetings All!

I hope you are warm, dry, well and happy today where ever you are. Its wet and windy in Drogheda at the moment but as I've heard said so many times before "that's just the weather".

Unfortunately at the moment the weather in Ireland and many other parts of the world is making life very difficult and even unbearable for many people. Lives have been lost and property destroyed by flooding and storm force winds.

Where ever you are in the world right now if you are among those people caught up in some kind of disaster.
