“We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.” – Nelson Mandela
Good morning peeps, meditation done.
Quote for the Day:
“We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”
Last night I watched the Pride of Britain Awards on ITV I had been alerted to it the night before on Twitter by Emma Bunton and Louie Spence posting that they were getting ready to go to their favourite event of the year.
When I watched the amazing stories of so many people’s inspirational battle through incredible difficulties to have such a positive effect on the lives of so many other people’s lives I was truly moved and spurred on to use my own time more wisely and do good for others.
Did the awards have the same affect on you?
Did they make you think I can do more, I can do better things with my time?
Last week I posted something about Diabetes and straight away it created a positive reaction and discussion and my friend Steve Reaper arranged to meet up with Karen Moore of Diabetes UK to see what we can do to raise money and spread awareness of Diabetes.
Diabetes is the fastest growing health threat of our times and an urgent public health issue. Since 1996, the number of people living with diabetes has more than doubled. If nothing changes, it is estimated that over five million people in the UK will have diabetes.
11.5 million people in the UK are at increased risk of getting Type 2 diabetes. Anyone can get it. But there are simple things you can do to lower your risk.
I am also determined to get something off the ground next year for Refuge, as the problem of domestic abuse is still huge here in the UK and I believe the law does not protect the victim’s enough to help put the perpetrators behind bars where they belong.
Although men can be abused too, the statistics show that in most cases it is women who are abused.
· One in four women is abused during her lifetime.
· One in nine is severely physically abused each year.
· Two are killed each week .
These are shocking statistics how can we let this happen?
We can help, by not keeping quiet and pretending it’s not happening let’s take action and do something about it.
I would also like to give a special mention to Prince Charles and everything he has achieved with the Prince’s Trust.
For over 40 years The Prince’s Trust has been helping young people turn their lives around, but their mission still remains the same. They believe every young person should have the chance to succeed which is why they help disadvantaged young people in the UK to get into work, education or training.
The Prince’s Trust support young people aged 13 to 30 who are unemployed and those struggling at school.
This year alone they will support 59,000 young people. Three in four young people on our programmes achieve a positive outcome.
“You can see how it is possible to turn young people’s lives around and give them self confidence, self worth and self esteem.”
HRH The Prince of Wales
