A need for strength and resilience

Excuse me for a while, While I’m wide-eyed and I’m so down caught in the middle….. Following on from my initial blog yesterday around the need to strive for positive thoughts (available here: It’s times like these ), today I wanted to focus on the need to be strong in times of challenge. Having confidence in yourContinue reading “A need for strength and resilience”

It’s times like these you learn to live again, It’s times like these you give and give again ….

It is an interesting time to enter Mental Health Awareness Week. Many of us have now been in a form of isolation for two months.
