Hot off the press…
Of all the ‘motivational’ videos out there, this one by Prince Ea really gets straight to the heart of the matter.
His video blog aims to give us a shift in perception…to reframe whatever may be holding us back from fulfilling our potential and living our dreams.
“There’s never been a statue erected for a critic….
“Don’t let this negative world get to you, don’t let it win”.
To your happiness…and our collective potential.

If the lady in your life doesn’t quite understand how you’re feeling, whether it’s moving on after divorce/ a past relationship, job loss, or healing from health challenges, [including stress], or if you’ve just had a bad day, try playing this ‘Take That’ song…
Sometimes all that’s needed is a little patience…
BBC Radio ran a special show today on the ‘healing power of music‘ and this was one of the tunes featured on the list.

Sometimes, things just take time.

World Changing Speech by Emma Watson on men & women –
“I’ve seen young men suffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less “macho”—in fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49; eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality either.
We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.
If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled.
Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong… It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.
If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are—we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom”. – #EmmaWatson
