MY TOP 3 MANTRAS THAT I LIVE BY – HOW THEY CHANGED MY LIFE AND CAN CHANGE YOURS TOO!
A couple of years ago I was having an incredibly tough time. I was sat in Harrods having afternoon tea just before Christmas and chatting to my lovely friend Debbie about people who had wronged me and how it was affecting me.
And boy, was it affecting me! That day I realised what a true friend Debbie was. SHE TOLD ME LIKE IT WAS, AND I CAN’T THANK HER ENOUGH. Her straight talking helped me get rid of the demons that had haunted me for years, even decades and has since led me to a much healthier and happier life.
So, what exactly what did she say that was so powerful I took it on board and changed my life? I have personalised the words so that when I repeat them they actually relate to me! Number 1


“Only I can be responsible for my own happiness”– admittedly this sounded a little weird at first, after all, we frequently look elsewhere for happiness. Whether it’s seeking pleasure, placing the responsibility…

THE SHOCKING RISE IN SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES IN WOMEN OVER 50!

Shocking rise in sexually transmitted diseases in the over 50s!
What you don’t know CAN hurt you!

Don't be blasé! Over the last couple of decades, the medical profession has aimed their STD awareness campaigns at young people aged 16 to 25. Overall it has been successful, however, in many ways it has backfired. By constantly targeting the young there has been a dramatic rise in STDs diagnosed within the 50 to 90 age group. Should we be surprised? Probably not!

Staggeringly, it’s not just the easier to treat STDs that are rising such as chlamydia diagnosis which has increased by 75% in the last ten years. Frighteningly the incidence of those over 50 seeking treatment for HIV has increased by 82% since the beginning of the 21st century. This phenomenon has been ongoing for several years now and doesn’t look likely to stop unless we address the issue ourselves!   

Why the rise?
Well, there are many reasons that can be, largely, put down to medical and cultural changes that the new over 50s…

MY HEART FELT PLEA TO 2018 - please bring hope...an open letter.

My Heart Felt Plea to 2018 - an open letter. Dear 2018
I am writing to you in the hope that you will be a peaceful year.
2017 has been a funny one! I’m not a big fan of New Year’s Eve and making impossible to keep resolutions that are dead in the dust by February. Nor do I get hugely excited with the idea of getting dressed up to go out and drinking impossible amounts of booze assuming of course, I can get anywhere near the bar, to celebrate your arrival! I fear I am a miserable sod!
The thing is, every year I truly believe that the coming year will be oh so much better than the last one. I look forward through rose tinted glasses to a life of success, (however that’s measured!) and emotional stability along with achieving the body of a goddess!
Every year, the same old sh1t rears its ugly head and every year I use a ton of courage and fortitude to deal with it which let me tell you is exhausting! Of course, I don’t expect perfection, that would make me even more deluded than I already am!…
