Dear Reader,

I've had a birthday since I last sent a newsletter.  Birthdays to me are big days.  As a kid, Christmas was fun but it was for everyone.  Birthdays were just for you and you were made to feel very special and it's a tradition I kind of like to continue!!!

I wasn't prepared for what happened though!  I decided to record a little video on facebook having received lots of really beautiful messages, but things didn't work out how I planned and, well, it got messy! 
I decided to post the video anyway (it's still watchable  here if you are interested) and in many ways I am glad I did.  I'm only human; if I'm cut, I bleed, if I'm hurting I cry and with love, I heal quickly.  I am healing already thank you to many wonderful people, and if you watch the video, I did go to bed believing that the present I had asked for really had been delivered.  xx

Back on a more solid platform, as I sat down to  write this, I often find myself racking my brains to come up with a blog topic that adds value, may help someone and make a difference.  This week, I had a list of ideas to choose from and there was one theme that I have spoken about with clients on multiple occasions this week; so it tells me that there are a  lot of people in this place - between a 'rock and a hard place.'  

It is that place where there is a decision to be made but its a flippin' hard one.  It may be that all options are tough, or there is an easier option but the end result won't leave you in a good place longer term.  And sometimes it is just easier to do nothing.  But ultimately that is the worst decision!

Am I in a rock and a hard place - not sure yet!  My father (and if you have been reading Mind Matters for a while you know that there is a history and a half there!!) left me a little present for my birthday - news that he might have cancer.  The rock - can I face this again 14 months after Mum died of cancer and knowing that unlike Mum, he will drain every ounce of me?  The hardplace - can I decide not to care for him because he will drain every ounce of me?

If you are in that 'rock and a hard place' situation or maybe can relate to it, you can read more about that here and what decisions I am making.

So this will be the last Mind Matters for probably a month.  We are taking our annual holiday early this year and so I will be away in a fortnight and I am sure you will have better things to do over Easter than read Mind Matters so I will be back with you towards the end of April and in the meantime, wish you a wonderful few weeks.

Until next time,

Caroline Cavanagh,
