I am embarrassed to say that when it comes to science I am not exactly top of the class. In fact I would go as far as to say that the mere mention of Physics and Chemistry just about send me to sleep, so when I was asked to take a look at an ebook called The Emerging New Science I wasn’t exactly jumping for joy.
The funny thing was though, I had heard so much about this ebook from people who I would never have thought were interested in any kind of science, and they all said that it was absolutely brilliant.
When you’re a working mum there are always so many things to think about and many of those things seem to involve the children. It can be easy to lose touch with the basics and some sound advice in this area would be welcomed by so many mums, including myself.
Imagine how pleased I was when I a friend recommended that I take a look at a website which has been put together by a lady called Lorraine Capon. Lorraine is an experienced teacher and working mother who has put together a series of books in the Be Able range which are about as down to earth as you could possibly get. The books range from how to become a tutor all the way to poetry that is written in a way that gets the point across to children on some often tricky subjects.
Many of us owe certain things to certain people. In my case, it was stumbling upon Napoleon Hill at a crossroads in my life – in my late twenties. His wisdom and council helped to put me on the right path. Did I become rich? No, but that is not what I was seeking in life at that time! We all have different measures of success and I achieved mine by loving what I did and being really happy! The money actually came later, not out of a conscious desire to have it, but because it just flowed from my actions in life, actions that I learnt from Hill.
I have to be honest here and tell you that I had never even heard of monophobia before and as for the fear of being alone, I thought that most people had fears like that at one time or another in their lives. It was not until I read an ebook on the subject that I began to realize that for many people, the fear of being alone is something very serious indeed.
I have always been a big flower lover and if you could see my house you would be surprised how many plants and flowers I have around the place. I love them all but my heart melts when I see an orchid. I’m sure you will agree when I say that they are absolutely beautiful and I always think of them as being special.
To be honest, the thought of actually growing an orchid has never even crossed my mind as I assumed that you needed to be something of an expert as well requiring a wide range of specialist equipment but it turns out that I couldn’t really be more wrong.
You don’t have to tell me how lucky I am to be able to live the life that I am living, you all know how I make a living and this fantastic lifestyle allows me to spend lots of quality time with my family. We just about always sit down and eat together and we can often be found still sitting at the dining table several hours after the meal, talking and joking with each other.
I often see kite surfers on my local beach here in Portugal and I can sit and watch them for ages. They always look like they are having so much fun and the tricks that they perform really do leave me wide mouthed in amazement. It was only a few days ago when I was walking along the beach to meet some friends for a coffee when I noticed two older people kite surfing and they made it look so easy that it got me thinking.
