True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.  - SOCRATES. 

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. ~ NELSON MANDELA

  • Dear Friends
  • Happiness and Wellbeing 

Welcome to a website where a search for happiness and wellbeing, together with a love of conversation (storytelling), has slowly blossomed into the perpetual book of the future.  
Seven years in the making, the website has chapters, pages, and millions (and millions!) of carefully considered words. 

By dint of much effort, this e-book is kept up-to-date and constantly on the move.  And, moreover, it's free. With visitors coming from around the world who could have wished for more.  

A good place to start is by going to SEARCH OUR SITE. It's simple enough to find, being the second item on the side menu. In the blink of an eye, you can search the website in its entirety on a keyword of your choice.  Alternatively, head straight for the three most popular pages on the side menu:


They are but a click away. The choice is yours. Then, there are pages specifically related to Positive Psychology - a discipline to which I am particularly drawn and for very good reasons. Read ...


Recently, I took it upon myself to design the first of a series of learning packages 'do-able' by anyone who has a heart, curiosity and imagination.  Check on progress and discover the why's and wherefore's of my brand new storytelling course*, this based on a trilogy of Open Learning Packages (LP2, LP2, LP3).  


And always remember ... this being human is a guest house ... be grateful for whoever comes ... because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.  

Every Drop of Water in the Ocean of Life is Important


Marie T Russell

We have to trust in ourselves. Trust that whatever little thing we do is like a pebble in a lake - the waves go out and out and out, and we don't know whom they will touch. Every "little" action we take will have repercussions we cannot envision.

We may simply be a drop of water in the ocean of life, but what is the ocean but a conglomeration of many, many drops. If each drop had said, I'm so little, I can't make a difference, I won't join in, then the ocean would be dry. 

You are not insignificant. Your words, your thoughts, your actions do make a difference. They are a drop that with many other drops add up to the ocean. You are a piece of the puzzle, your words and actions are a stepping stone for someone else. 

Never think that you are insignificant - that what you do and say can't make a difference. You are here, and alive. And that in itself has made a difference.

The NHS 5-YEAR PLAN - re Task Force

I think we need to be bold, imaginative, resourceful and persistently challenging. I think we need to spend our energy on identifying the levers within our grasp, each and every one of us, to ensure that our mental health is valued equally with our physical health. Anything less is incongruent to our humanity.

Peace I leave with you..,

My peace I give unto you;

Not as the world giveth,

give I unto you.

Let not your heart be troubled,

Neither let it be afraid.

John 14 p 27
