We find it easy to negate our own needs and to not look after ourselves as well as we look after others. We dont always think about the potential ramifications of our actions either. Or if we do, we almost paralyse ourselves with fear; were caught frozen in the headlights of oncoming traffic. We stand rooted to the spot instead of taking remedial action. Think about how youd help (or advise) someone who was facing your particular issue. Then follow your own advice.

While few could doubt the magnificence of a Caravaggio painting, or appreciate a sunrise over the ocean, some of the most beautiful things in our world arent visible: a loved ones laugh, the sound of crunching through autumn leaves, or invisible gestures of generosity. Some people, actions, and things exude beauty whether anyones around to acknowledge them or not. You are one of these. Dont worry about who might be criticising you. Just be you.

And Ive got lots of other forecasts to write and people to advise. I need to prioritise and focus on folk who are paying attention.

How are they going to swindle anyone if they look like theyre going to empty our pockets at the first opportunity? Yet, its one thing to be on the look-out for folk who are after our cash, but how do we protect ourselves from those want to rob us of our sense of wellbeing? That, after all, is far more vulnerable.

Life might look as if its flowing along in the right direction, but just as were starting to enjoy ourselves, up pops a problem. Aargh. You face a task youre not equipped to deal with.
