Looking for a Hero?

Be your own hero! Save yourself from all the wasted years in a raging river of denial, guilt, depression, and feelings of inadequacy.

If you fall down, get up. If it seems dark, let you light shine. You are not alone

Margaret Hodge Pleads “Naivety” To Turning Her Back on Sexually Abused Children


Researching Reform

It seems there are no limits to how low politicians will stoop to protect their mist-thin honour or to avoid a, well deserved, lambasting by the public and the press.

And Margaret Hodge is no exception. As a councillor for Islington in 1973 and lead councillor no less for a decade (since 1982), she simply chose to ignore the many child victims that came forward to detail horrific incidents of rape and other forms of sexual abuse. One home in her borough for example, ran what were known as “Savile Taxis”, widely believed to be taxis sent to the home on behalf of Jimmy Savile, who would then ferry several children to and from his location. This practice was commonplace, and frequent at the home, yet Ms Hodge never investigated.

Like all politicians who place self interest above serving their constituents, Hodge then went on to become Children’s Minister.

Quality of Life = Quality of Questions

I grew up feeling so very  alone, disconnected, angry, lost sad and very desperate!  Was this my life I wondered?  Was this some joke forced on me by the universe?  Was I a science experiment to see how much a human can tolerate?

I wanted……………………………….   something.  I was empty inside.  What was it I was missing?  I didn’t even know.

The chaos at home would drowned out my own thoughts which were  replaced by those of my parents.  Their screaming “I hate you!” and “You are bad” and my favorite, “Wait till you grow up, then you will  see how it  really is.”

I did grow up and you know what?  I do see how it really is.

While I asked those questions about my life, like, “Why me?”  I felt pain.  I felt my heart breaking.  I held on to the loneliness, the depression, the anger and I hated my life!  I did this for many years and I struggled for perspective and meaning from a past that had none!

Then there were a few years of, Who am I really? and What is my purpose here?  My life began to turn around in big ways.  One day I found myself asking, what am I grateful for?  Who and what do I love?  Is there a way to serve and make meaning so that my life matters?  I have friends who have marveled at the peace I have today.

What I want you to know is this:  You quality of life is in so many ways determined by the quality of the questions in your heart, mind and soul.  Change your questions for just 10 days.  See how you feel about it.






Seek and you shall find.

Ask and you shall receive.

Knock the door shall be opened.

This is law!  The Universe is calling to your power.  It calls for you to find your gift in this life.  Ask the question and listen to the answer!

Seek your gift!  Everyone has one.  But you have to seek it, become conscious of it.  Most are asking, how can I make more money, get more things, collect more stuff.  How can I avoid pain?

Instead ask what power is in me?  How can I become more myself?  How can I achieve my potential?

Survivors!!  It is not too late to become aware of the wonders that are inside you once you take the time to look.  You can do it reflecting from the comfort of your sofa.  You can ponder on a walk.  You can discuss it with a trustworthy friend.  Spend just five minutes out of your busy day on this quest for self-enlightenment and empowerment.  You are not the past.  You are the future.

We all have power that we might think was taken away.  We all have a gift that no one told us to look for.

What is yours?
