Happy Days
Experience is an important element of any story. And this week’s word square is designed to get you thinking about the more prosaic experiences that are the meat and two veg of anyone’s life. I know a story is supposed to be dramatic, but stories often bury themselves deeply in people’s psyche’s when they also show the mundane, the everyday reality of life with the occasional foray into something different.

When I was 22 I was that annoying combination of confident and naïve. I was confident that the world was going to bow down before me as I bent it to my will. At the same time, I was naïve enough to believe I knew it all and that no one could tell me anything. It was an unsustainable state of being, the consequences of which I have lived with every day ever since.

My aim would be to learn what my innate talents were and how they could be turned to something I could become ...

How Grief Upsets Your Gut Health
After the death of Caroline Rustigian’s mother earlier this year, her physical health took a tumble. “I stopped eating and couldn’t keep food down,” says Rustigian, a public relations consultant and podcaster in Laguna Beach, Calif. Desperate to feel better, Rustigian went to urgent care, where she was told that acid reflux was one cause of her tummy troubles. The doctor recommended medication, which eased her discomfort.
