4 January 2015 Category: [Uncategorized](http://www.psychologyandappetite.com/category/uncategorized/ "View all posts in Uncategorized") Looking up from a year that was, we are now in the Year that Is. On New Years Day, my family and I started the discussion and, gentle intellectual spar, to debate what is truly possible versus what is false hope or folly. Perhaps more importantly: how, or can we, avoid being prey to our own delusional self belief (be that dithering and pessimistic, or embarrassingly, wildly optimistic). Read More
