It is hard to believe that a new decade of this millennium is already fast approaching. The older I get the more challenging I find these kinds of life milestone become. But because this new decade is launching in a climate of severe economic gloom, I know that it is going to be even harder. Indeed, the choruses of gloomy media predictions have now begun and I can feel myself already being emotionally infected with negativity. I know that I am going to have to work even harder to keep my own morale in good enough shape to be able to see the positive possibilities of the next decade. But I am determined to do so and moreover, I am totally confident that I will succeed.
Sounds arrogant? I hope not. It has taken many years to achieve this kind of faith in myself. It was finally cemented into my psyche when I flipped through the finished edition of my latest book earlier this year. I realised just how many tricks and techniques I could now pull out of my life-skills bag to fight off encroaching negativity. I felt very lucky and very privileged.
In order to share this treasured knowledge a bit more widely, I am currently trying to get to grips with the Twitter and Blogging world. Top on my list of resolutions for 2011 is to make use of these great new communication tools. But I am still very much in the dunce department of this field. Luckily my publishers Piatkus are helping me to get moving. They are currently Tweeting regular tips from my book (“101 Morale Boosters – Instant Comfort for Difficult times”) as well as providing lots of other information about other uplifting books.

… and why not become one of my Twitter followers as well. Right now my resolution feels quite daunting and I am in need of loads of encouragement!
