My journeys are a personal collection of articles that details how I became what I am today. Journal entries that usually lay out a pain or problem faced, explain the immediate way I coped, how I gained understanding, the longer term stratgey, our own growth and development.

There are amazing tools avaialable and it is our hope that you can relate to this platform, be encouraged to share our observations, and use the techniques presented to take extra care of yourself in any environment, push your boundaries and challenge your ability to be proactive as opposed to reactive.
