Reflections of The Year

Self-reflection is a process where we grow our understanding of who we are, understand our values and make sense of our thoughts and feelings.  It doesn’t have to be done on special occasions such as birthdays or seeing in the new year, but something that we can do all the time.  It allows us to learn about ourselves and accept who we are, inspiring us to live our lives with intention.  This week, I invite three friends, Amaya Alonso, Rudee Birtee and Trudy Kuhn to reflect on the past year.  Enjoy!

Living with a Stammer

A stammer is a disorder of speech. There are stoppages and disruptions which interrupt the smooth flow and timing of the speech. These stoppages may take the form of repetitions of sounds, syllables or words.   This weeks guest, Brian Skelton, shares his story of how he developed a stammer as a young boy and how this followed him though to adulthood.  His experience includes being bullied and two suicide attempts.  He sought help as an adult and a three day therapy course with the charity Starfish Project  changed his life.  He is an inspiration and an accomplished public speaker.
