    Article by Liz Copeland We’ve probably all experienced being “stuck”: stuck in a job we can’t stand, stuck in a relationship we just can’t seem to get ourselves out of, stuck in a way of thinking that isn’t helping us move forward. Sometimes, we are stuck because external circumstances just aren’t going our way, but more often, says life coach Liz Copeland of www.lizcopeland.co.uk, “we get stuck when we have big or difficult decisions to make, or we need to move on, but just choose not to. Sometimes we don’t even know we are stuck, but there are signs…” Signs of Being Stuck Ruminating on the same thing over and over again Focused on the past or going over one situation such as a break up Trying to...

    Article by Carmella B’Hahn       Loss and grief have honed me into who I am today: strong in spirit and deeply content as well as vulnerable at times. I am now a grief counsellor and an author and I write about the power of connecting with what lies beneath the surface, beyond our persona, our stories and our ego.   In February 1992 my five-year-old my son, Benjaya, who was one of the first babies to be born in water in England in 1986, slipped down a riverbank and drowned, shattering my reality in an instant.

You will know in your heart of hearts when the time is right.

    Article by Ceri Wheeldon At times it seems that the world is full of couples, and if you are married or in a long term relationship, it is so easy to slip into being one half of a couple, instead of an individual. It is a hard fact of life, however, that most women will find themselves living alone at some point. Just watching the much acclaimed Fabulous Fashionistas highlighted how life had changed for those women in the programmes who found themselves widowed – one after a happy 54 year marriage. They had all embraced this new stage of their lives with gusto! We never know when , or for what reason we may find ourselves...

    Article by Fabaferfifty Death is, unfortunately, an inevitable part of life. The death of a loved one can be utterly devastating, emotionally, and leave a person feeling grief-stricken for a long time to come; depending on your level of emotional connection with the person who has passed on, overcoming the death of a loved one can take weeks, months – or even years. Grieving is a process that we must all go through after the death of a loved one, and it’s a process which is unique to every person. There are, however, a number of common steps which may help during this difficult time. The formalities While the death of a loved one can set off a tide of sadness and emotion in a person, the formalities associated with arranging a funeral,...
