Welcome

Welcome to Keep Calm and Relax.This website was inspired by the profound and insightful wisdom of courageous people throughout the ages. Historically events and circumstances that can cause us stress, have remained surprisingly unchanged. These words are my interpretation of how the inspirational philosophy of yesterday can be a positive influence on how we cope with tomorrow. I have woven my thoughts on coping with difficult times and how to survive them around the wise and wonderful words of great men and women.

Do get in touch if you agree or disagree with anything I have to say. I don't have answers just my thoughts and the thoughts of wise men and women that might just make you think differently.

“ACT DECIDEDLY AND TAKE THE CONSEQUENCES. NO GOOD IS EVER DONE BY HESITATION”

Abraham Lincoln said ”Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle!”  

Do you hesitate? One foot over the threshold do you have to peer out before stepping through?  The problem with being human is that we don’t always know what we want or where we want to be. Feeling pushed into instant decisions on which road to take, we hesitate and postpone making any decision at all, but taking the wrong road can be an adventure it doesn’t have to lead to disappointment or disaster.

Adlai Stevenson wrote “On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of countless millions who at the dawn of victory lay down to rest and on resting died”

 In sport victories are claimed often by hanging on whilst fighting for your next breath,running on legs that can't run any more and reaching with arms that don't strech that far, and never giving up.They are  not ever won in the changing room deciding what tactic to use or what plan to follow. In life hesitating about whether you will know how to play the game can stop you from reaching your own personal goals.

“If knowing answers to life’s questions is absolutely necessary to you, then forget the journey. You will never make it, for this is a journey of unknowables, – of unanswered questions, enigmas, incomprehensibles, and most of all, things unfair. -  Madame Jeanne Guyon

To live without certainty, in a life full of fear and insecurity and not to be held back by hesitation, can if we are brave enough, create a mindset that allows us to live a life without limitation.

  Title quote by Thomas Huxley
