Christchurch We Stand With You.

As you know, Christchurch has been devastated by a major earthquake that has left many people dead and injured with homes and businesses in ruin.
I wrote this song originally to support people with long term illness but now wish to dedicate this song to the City of Christchurch and its residents and visitors  who have been affected by this disaster.

Christchurch We Stand With You.

My thoughts and prayers are with you as are those of the rest of the world.

Fear and Change

There is always fear when there is change, but courage will see you through. Be en-couraged and be an encourager.

Fear and Courage

Without fear courage means nothing.

The need to have courage only exists when there is a possibility that things will go badly. Courage is not the denial of fear but the embracing of it. It is using the emotional energy the fear generates to focus on what needs to be done to overcome the circumstance.

When you are facing difficult circumstances or decisions and are gripped by fear know that courage will allow you to get through it . If you know people going through “fearful” times you can be an encourager, that is one who gives courage to another.

Courage and fear are two sides of the same coin.

For a leader courage is an essential trait to have and to be an encourager is critical for the growth and development of your organisation.

So let me say again… Without fear courage means nothing.

(Note: Irrational fears and phobia need to be addressed and counselled correctly and appropriately to assure that they are dealt with properly.)

Love Your City

Love the city or town where you live, always look to the positive that you can build on.

There may be problems, there may be issues, but unless you start to love the city and it’s people you will never bring about change.

Getting involved is where it starts, join a community or advocacy group. Learn the history of the city and its people.
