Episode 29 – Love is the Answer

All of us have an intense desire to be loved and nurtured.   But love is not about us and our wants.  Mother Teresa once said that it is more important to do small things with great love than to do great things with little love.  This episode is a reflection after listening to one of my favourite songs, and I’ve concluded that love is the answer!  Enjoy

Episode 28 – Thankful

With thanksgiving taking place this week in the US, it got me thinking about some of things that we can be thankful for.  Yes, I know there are some of you who wished that this year didn’t exist, but sometimes we find it easier to focus on what we don’t have instead of what we do have.   So using my friends as guinea pigs, I compiled an unscientific survey, the results of which are shared in this episode.  Enjoy.


Episode 27 – An Apparent Ambition

Have you ever had an ambition that was simply out of this world?  Who wouldn’t want to venture into space.  Christine Darden was an inspirational figure whose career spanned over 40 years working with NASA.  As an adult, I figured that maybe that was a route for me also, well, in a slightly unusual way.  Intrigued? Well, you will need to listen.  Enjoy!

Episode 26 – R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Don’t worry, I’m not about to burst into song!  I certainly do not sing like Aretha Franklin!  However, I pose the question, do you treat others the way that you like to be treated?  Examples in this episode include my own personal opinion on the leadership skills required both in the political and business arena and why respect for others is important.    Also, on a personal level, treating yourself with respect isn’t that complicated either.  Enjoy.

Episode 25 – Words Have Power

Words have the strength and power to help, harm or humiliate others. How disciplined are you to speak in a way that conveys respect, gentleness and humility?  Which words do you use on yourself?  Are you as kind to yourself as you are to others? I would encourage you all to think before you speak.  Here is my take on things.  Enjoy!

Episode 24 – A Thought on Sport

Do you like to participate in sports or exercise?  Why?  That was a question that was put to me by two people recently, and I found it challenging to respond straight away with an answer to an activity that I do regularly.  It’s amazing the amount of everyday things that we take for granted.  I finally came up with a response.  Enjoy.
