Is There A Life Coach In The House?

“Life is just one damned thing after another.”  Right now I am minded to agree with those words of the American author, Elbert Hubbard.   And this isn’t just about the spectacular failure of my venture into wildlife cinematography either.  No, as I approach my 40th birthday, I find myself mired in a morass of problems easily avoided or of my own making.  I’m having visions of my supposed mid-life crisis turning into a full-on nervous breakdown.  Which I suppose at least should have positive repercussions for my creativity…

The more I think about it, it occurs to me that for 6/7 months now I have been suffering from a kind of emotional, spiritual, and psychological hangover.  Of course, being a bit of a drama queen, I may be exaggerating a bit.   All I know is that lots of things in my life are going tits up.  Family troubles, bank troubles, Occupy troubles, girl troubles; it’s like one of those perfect storms you read about.  My Mum always says that bad things come in threes, but I think she underestimates it.  Still, I have the therapeutic benefits from my work to buoy me, the knowledge that there are others in far worse predicaments than I, and the hope that tomorrow will be better.  There is also the clear knowledge that the answers to some of my problems lie in my own hands, if I pull my finger out.  Is there a Life Coach in the house?
