Are You Missing Yourself?

Ask yourself the following:

  • Am I being crabby with my nearest and dearest?
  • Am I criticising those around me?
  • Are my eating habits getting a bit too erratic?
  • Am I smoking or drinking just a bit too much, too often? Continue reading

Are You Friends With Your Money? Or Enemies?

Can you say you have a good working relationship with your
money, or is it more like a distant-relative-type relationship? Maybe
you feel it’s like the relationship you have with your best friend. Or

So you rarely have a sense of achievement, but have plenty of frustration. Continue reading
