Self (1 of 3)

I recently wrote about kudos and the effect of receiving "unwarranted" kudos had on me. You can unpack that post so many different ways, entirely up to you. For me, it was why have we become so needy of external validation? Plenty of wise words have been written about feedback, encouragement, social media's use of... Continue Reading →


I have started to ride my bike everywhere and love it. Gets me "to and from" faster and a great way to commute (as long as you look out for cars and pedestrians - more on the latter on another post). I was telling a friend about it and he asked me how long my... Continue Reading →
