Episode 217: Forgive and Forget

The dictionary defines "to forgive" as this: Verb. To stop feeling angry or resentful towards someone for an offence, flaw, or mistake.
But language evolves. And maybe, to you, forgive and forget doesn't mean letting go of something so as to feel better. It means forgive the abuser and forget the victim. And it shouldn't.

Bonus Episode: Andrea McLean

I was recently contacted by TV legend Andrea Mclean. Andrea has been working in the media for years but recently made the decision to take her life in a different direction and created an online community called This Girl Is On Fire all about personal growth.
This week is the launch of an App that accompanies it and so I thought it would be nice to get her on the podcast to talk a little bit about it.
I hope you find what we say useful!

Life Changes

Episode 209: Life Changes

Plato, the ancient Greek philosopher is quoted as once saying "Everything changes and nothing remains still. You cannot step twice into the same stream" I think he probably got the idea from Heraclitus who said “The only constant in life is change” So even 2 and a half thousand years ago we knew what we were up against. That change is normal and needs to be accepted. But that doesn't make it any easier when big things happen does it?
