Living in the present

Up until 10 years ago I was a fit, healthy, happy, 45-year-old guy. I did triathlons, weight training, yoga, rowing and martial arts, and I was a circus performer too. Then in the blink of an eye my life was turned upside down and I was fighting for my life in hospital.   A serious…
