Christmas

What is the best gift you can give yourself for Christmas? Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. We spend it with our families, people we don’t need to ask for love and support, cause we know we already have it. These days bring out the best in us, we forgive the... read more »

Placebo. For those about to get better…

we salute you! :) And now, all you rockstars, a special gift from me to you: TASK 1 Decide whether it’s true or false: “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better”.

1000000 ways to … be yourself

Being someone else could be very tempting. What would it be like to become diametrically different? The antithesis of what we really are? Would I make a good Wall Street shark?

Doers and Believers

None of us knows how much time we’ve got left and very few of us know how to make every moment count. I know it sounds depressing but let’s try to turn these words into something good and start making wise choices. It’s impossible to do it all the time, we can’t live without our little indulgences,... read more »

Dreams do come true

Today I’m going to write about a very special friend of mine, whose determination managed to turn reality into a dream. Michal is one of the nicest people I know. He’s younger than me, yet there are so many things I could learn from him. I guess it’s not a reason for me to be... read more »

Changes we dread most

If you wanted to see the second part of My Francisco, you will have to wait. I’m sorry. There’s something else I’d like to share with you today. Days turn grey to blue (Sorry, Rob Flynn, had to change this part a bit.) Mary is a colleague of mine. She’s from Dallas in Texas and she... read more »
