DISPOSABLE

‘I didn’t know you were leaving, no one told me!’ Funny thing about retirement — The feeling of being disposable Being needed until you aren’t — There’s someone to replace you — It’s all good You can leave now — Maybe earlier than you planned but it suits us better Helps us drive our business into the future — Bye And with that the door is closed and the work…

SHE HURTS – SHE HOPES

Dragging herself out of the comfort of bed and to the surgery, took effort extreme effort — To overcome the fatigue and the mental torment The painful joints, the aching muscles, the incessant headaches Yet she came because she knew — ‘There had to be More to life than this’ She’d tried everything to get better and as a last resort came to us Referred by a friend who’d had…

THE DREAM STEALERS

‘Ideas are a dime a dozen’ he said… Then he stole one, not mine but someone else’s and made a fortune He used the one with the dream for what he could get out of him and then left him So ideas may be a dime a dozen - BUT - You’ve got to have them in the first place Not be so unimaginative that all you can do is…

What 45 years in Dentistry has taught me about stress — Not what you think!

I have agonised, debated with myself, fought through the ups and downs I have questioned myself so many times  — What do I have to say that’s different — Why me I have compared myself with others, worried over treatments —Did I get it right Could I have done better — What if I’m wrong — What if I’m not good enough And then a comment — Simple but powerful…

WHOSE LIFE ARE YOU LIVING?

‘Mine of course’ — You say!  — Who else’s could it be right? Well that’s what I thought and of course you’re right — It is your life BUT Was it the one you designed or was it designed for you I remember as a child day dreaming of my adult life Right down to the car I would drive — Yes I know too many movies! Yes I've had…
