Self

Let's explore what makes us tick and how we present ourselves to the world.

Happiness, time for a withdrawal?

Happiness is very subjective and hard to define. What makes one person happy does not make everyone happy ( I am positively unhappy if someone suggests we take a ride on a roller coaster but suggest an evening of Elvis music....I'm ecstatic) . You probably know what makes you happy, be it Elvis or a roller coaster ride, or an evening with a good friend. The chances are money has very little to do with the happy moments in your life.

Empowerment is a hot topic. The idea that we can step into our brilliance and self empower is a sexy subject and something most of us will admit to wanting in our lives. Yet empowerment assumes that we understand how we disempower ourselves and in my experience that's the piece that often stays hidden in the shadows. I believe this means that we slap plasters on wounds instead of really healing the pieces that give us authentic empowerment.

Is Women's Increasing Power Helping to Reduce Violence?

That question was asked, almost as an aside, by a BBC journalist of a senior policeman in an item on the reduction of violent crime (a 12% fall had been recorded, an ongoing trend): “Do you think“, he asked, “that the increasing power of women is a factor in the violent crime figures going down?”
