Be the Change…..

The Lindt Chocolate Cafe in Sydney's Martin Place used to be a place where people went for a little extra indulgence and delight.  Among the many cafes and coffee shops in the area, it exuded charm and was an extra special place to meet for a treat, whether it be a great coffee, a deluxe hot chocolate or one of the many goodies Lindt is renowned for.  I'd often meet my daughter and/or friends there after I'd finished seeing clients in my Hypnotherapy/Coaching practice just around the corner in Macquarie Street.  I used the Westpac bank literally doors up from it on the other side of the...

I have this letter tucked away in my underwear drawer, and when I find myself wanting to curl up and hide from my problems, I force myself to read it. Why? It's a letter from my grandmother, that she wrote to me right before she passed away. In this letter, I find the comfort I seek, in that particular moment.
