Staying the course: positively inspirational

“How do you maintain your composure when you feel like you’re losing control?  How do you stay on track when it seems that nothing is going to plan?  How do you rise above your circumstances when you feel that there is no hope?” These are just a few of the questions that have entered my […]

The Enlightened

  I’m taking a sabbatical from the ‘Positive Vibes’ weekly feature post this week to share some thoughts on life and choosing to live positively. As someone said recently, “we don’t always get a chance to choose our path in life. We choose how to live it”. These wise words were spoken by a man […]
