Of all forms of courage the ability to laugh is the most...

There is nothing quite like a deep, down, tummy laugh when things get challenging.

I remember during matric when pressure was at breaking point meeting up with my friends for a 'study sesh' ended up being one, big fat laugh sesh. I'd say it was the therapy we all needed to let off a bit of steam and then head back to our books.

Laughing apparently has benefits of achieving a toned tummy, let's roll! 

Calm down people, let's take it slow

It's that time of year again, when I can't believe that Christmas decorations are already bursting out of shops. It makes me want to say; 'calm down people, let's take it slow'. Don't get me wrong I love the festive season other than the packed shopping malls but my festive feeling can't really start in October, it's a tad early. What will be a bit different this year is that I'll be in Thailand up until 2 days before Christmas so who know maybe I'll miss the large gold, green and red balls hanging in the malls.

Take something away, then you appreciate it.

Over the last couple of months I have been getting stuck into trail running. It something I never would have thought I’d enjoy as much as I do. The runners rush is indeed a reality. Sadly I have hurt my (complicated name) muscle in my foot so have booked off by the Physiotherapist to run for a while and I genuinely can’t wait to get back on the trail. For someone who felt exercise was too sore this is a real revelation. This got me thinking about one of my favourite little quotes - It's true we don't know what we've got until it’s gone, but we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.
