Under Pressure

(Originally written by Tony Prince on 12 Jan 2016) Before you ask, yes this blog post has been inspired by David Bowie and his passing yesterday. What you wouldn’t know was that it has also been inspired by Christine Teo, I would encourage you to check out her website Generation 414. Why did these two beings merge into a blog?Well due to the passing of David Bowie, the radio and social media is awash with Bowie songs and tributes. My favourite Bowie song is Under Pressure and listening it today the last verse really hit me Cause love’s such an old-fashioned wordAnd love dares you to care forThe people on the edge of the nightAnd love dares you to change our way...

Your Past does not dictate Your Future

  As we arrive on the last day of the 2015, I reflected on the past 356 days and it’s been quite a journey. In fact, I have been looking back at my life and thinking about where do I want to be in the future?  I came from a background of abuse; I was raised in a highly dysfunction home.

It happens every day in our own backyard. Are our eyes and hearts open wide enough to notice what is going on around us or are we too consumed with our...
