Oh my goodness. Is it really more than a year since I posted a blog here? Unfortunately and fortunately, yes... yes it is. 

Both unfortunate and fortunate, Krystyna? Do explain.

Sure Krystyna, I'd love to. (Eh, it's late on a Friday night and my subtle sense of humour has abandoned ship and left the ridiculous one in command! ;) )

We all have struggles in life, and sometimes it can be hard to know how to deal with the pain. Today I'm talking about dealing with internal distress and discomfort. Our minds can often become the problem, but we can take responsibility for our minds, experiences and choices so that we can live and serve more effectively despite the problems

“It’s all in your head.”

“Get over it. It’s just in your head. It doesn’t matter.”

“You’re making it up.”

“You’re just imagining things.”

“You’re taking it too much to heart.”

"You're overthinking things."

It’s a phrase used to describe anything that may only exist in someone’s mind – assuming that people are kind e...

How many of you were crammers at school? I certainly was. Squashing a term's worth of work into 2 days of hasty revision was my usual study strategy. If you flip through my university textbooks you’ll see pages and pages of highlighted text. Somehow, the act of reading, deciding which the significant points were, and then scribbling all over those with neon-coloured pens, worked to fix the information in my head well...
