I struggled with where to start on this post, which is kind of ironic as one of the side effects of my insomnia, when at its worst, is lack of concentration (bad for me as I have a very short attention span anyway). Continue reading
Sub Heading – My relationship with running. That was the real title, but lets face it, that wouldn’t have grabbed your attention half as easily.
Running is something I have never ever enjoyed, at one stage of my life I used to say ‘nothing in life is worth running for, there will be another train or bus, the only reason to run is if someone is chasing you with a weapon‘. Continue reading
I spend a lot of time looking for inspiration, for life lessons, for ways to improve myself, my attitude, and my thinking. A lot of my time is spent reading books, articles, and blogs.
