Managing Workplace Emotions
You can't change conflict and opposing points of view in the workplace. You can, however, change the way you react. Become more emotionally aware, harness your emotions and express them positively with control, confidence and composure.

The world is our oyster.

After an awesome week at Eldorado, Clive and I drove back and stayed with Chris in revelstoke. He had just returned from two weeks in Gulmarg, Kashmir, India where I spent a year dare I say it nearly 40 years ago.

It was awesome to see his pictures and his joy. Way back then I bought a ring in Kashmir with a star on it. It is my favorite ring and what do you know, Chris bought his girlfriend Emma a necklace with a blue stone that had a similar lucky star!

We picked up our email messages and found out that Shona and Andrew were in Panama waiting to ship their westfalia van to Columbia while they had organised to sail their on a yacht.  And just today we heard that it took them 10 nights, 50 feet waves and 38 knot winds but they are now in Columbia.

Then the next day Chris was flying to France for 5 days. Not many dull moments.
