Resilience: Come hell or high water

Sometimes our hardest times can be the turning point. I look back at my life and I can see how this rings true. This blog was inspired by an article I had retained from a couple of years ago – a man’s (Marc Hare) marriage broke up, he was made redundant and broke his leg […]
