I'm back! I'm sorry it's been a while I've been hit with writers block over the last couple of months...for the blog anyway but the book is finally starting to be put down on paper, or laptop at least. Today I got home from work and had a surge of creativity and an impulse to… Continue reading Fate, Chance and Orchestrated Happenstance
So about a year ago I wrote a post on self-esteem, body confidence and the media. I looked at how the current age of social media and unrealistic perfectionism infects us into striving to be something which is unobtainable. It's annoying but something I've never personally felt too pressured by. Interestingly when I wrote that… Continue reading Health, Weight and Feeling Yourself.
So that was it, 30 days of blogging every day throughout June all done! And what a month. I started off with the purpose of each post being meaningful, albeit with the awareness that some would have to be shorter. That didn't really happen now did it! Although I've felt much more connected to my… Continue reading The End
Today's word prompt is ‘breeze.’ I got back in the gym today after a couple of weeks off and I can't believe the impact a bit of exercise can have on my mood! The effects of exercise on mental health are well documented; with some literature and research finding that it is as effective in… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 17 – Breeze
Today's word prompt is ‘directional.’ I have absolutely no idea what direction anything in my life is heading in. Where I'll live, what I'm doing with it, who's in it. And uncertainty is difficult to accept for most people. As humans we like predictability. Way back when we were cavemen life was harsh and short… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 7 – Directional #BledJ

In today's age of social media it really is hard to not compare yourself and your current situation to everyone around you. The problem with that is, as we all know, people only tend to post… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 5 – Exchange #BledJ
My goal for the year was to write one post a month but I missed March already! A lot has changed in my life in the last few months, and as a creature of habit I don't do too well with change. Inevitably, following a period of arguable chaos and instability, comes the opportunity to… Continue reading Unwavering Optimism and the Pursuit of Happiness
The title of this post is so cheesy but I couldn't have summarised it any better so bare with me. I'm a self-confessed over analyser. I struggle to just accept things as they are and I constantly question what things mean and why. It's a running joke in the family! When I was a child my auntie… Continue reading Happiness; the destination and the journey.
