Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, and whoever you are spending this Christmas period with, I hope you are and all who are dear to you are having a wonderful time.
But realising that there will also be many for whom a happy holiday is not an option – if poverty, sickness, bereavement, depression, or the difficulties of life in general, mean that this is not such a joyous time of year for you – I send you especially my love and best wishes, and a glimmer of optimism that 2014 may offer better times ahead.
Happy or sad, I hope you’ll enjoy my New Year’s gift to you – An Ocean Rower’s Top Tips for Happiness and Meaning. Just click on that link to take you to the download page. And please feel free to forward it on to anybody you know who might appreciate its message.
I’m with my dear old mother for my birthday on the 23rd, then spending a few days with my partner, then we’re off to the Renaissance Weekend in Charleston where I’m giving a number of presentations and other contributions. We have a special side-event at the Charleston Library on Dec 30th at 5.30pm, if you want to come along. Just contact me for details.
Wishing you all the very best for the remainder of 2013, and a stellar start to 2014!
