July 2017


It had recently been recommended to me to spend a week away on my own.

This was something I had never done before and felt very uncomfortable about, but I decided to do it anyway.

To my surprise it had a profound effect on me.

As a result I’d like to share the following 3 things:

Firstly, one of the 19th century’s greatest thinkers Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

Secondly, this is one of the biggest regrets people in palliative care have:

“I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.”

And finally, these were some of the last words of legendary Apple visionary Steve Jobs moments before he died:

“I realise that all the accolades and riches of which I was once so proud, have become insignificant, with my imminent death….

Material things lost can be found. But one thing you can never find once you have lost it, is life…

Please treasure your family love, love for your spouse, love for your friends…”


I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions from all of that.
