    Inner Critic

    I was on an acting course this weekend and the subject of the ‘inner critic’ came up. Everyone knows what the inner critic is, it’s the character inside you who says ‘you’re doing it completely wrong, you’re going to look like an idiot, you’re not clever enough, you’re lazy, you’re deluded.’ As Scott Williams the acting teacher said, everyone has one, it is the loudest voice in the room and will drown out everyone else, it tells lies, it speaks in the voice of your mother and father; and it can’t be gotten rid of. Scott also went on to…

    London on Two Wheels

    In a bid to be financially efficient and do my little bit to save the environment, all of two months after selling my bike I am on the lookout for a new one! London is an amazing city to live in and although we have a great transport network, boasting underground trains that turn up as if by magic, literally 90 seconds apart during rush hour, it is an increasingly expensive way to get around and no good for local, suburban travel. For that, I will be relying on my two wheeled friend, the bicycle. Cycling as a lifestyle choice…

Athena and I meandered down to the #busseybuilding in Peckham for a #rooftopfilmclub ‘s screening of ‘The Breakfast Club[1]‘, and guess what? It was whizzing it down. So I am a fan of the old 80’s movies (The Goonies[2], Indiana Jones etc.), they make me feel proper nostalgic as my cousin and I used to watch them loads as kids (after that we used to pillow fight the bajeebers…

    The Magic Pill Mentality

    The magic pill is a mentality that exists in the majority of us.  We have an ailment and simply want something to take it away.  The irritation is unbearable and the pain drives us to the doctor. The magic pill mentality is a learned mindset formed from childhood watching our parents take us to the doctor. The doctor would perform his tests and give a pill for complaint to “remedy”.  This mindset is practiced all the way into adulthood. As a medical missionary I have had a number of patients who expected me to give something like a herb to…
