Self Destruct

About twenty years ago I watched as someone close to me almost self-destructed. It didn’t matter how much friends and family told her to slow down and take a look at what she was doing to herself, she just kept going. It was the 80’s, the days of ‘die before cry’, the days of corporate excess and extravagance, the days of ‘greed is good’ and stomp on anyone that gets in the way. She was cutting so many corners Read More...

When did you become the least important person in your life?

When did you become the least important person in your life? Think about it, how often do you put your own needs, feelings and desires behind those of others? We do things we don’t want to do at work, at home and for our friends because we don’t want to let people down, yet every day we are letting ourselves down and disappointing our own hopes.

On Sunday I ran my first and only half marathon on Queensland's Gold Coast. The longest distance I had run in the past was 10km in the NIKE Great Race last year. The half marathon is 21km and even though it was a flat course it was a real challenge for a social runner like me. Anyway I am rapt that I did it and I know that it will be my first and last half.
