Fate, Chance and Orchestrated Happenstance

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

Health, Weight and Feeling Yourself.

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.

Happy Place

I'm back! After blogging every single day throughout June I needed a break. I've taken 18 days off but it feels so much longer and I'm really ready to get back into the swing of things again, I'm hoping to post a couple of times a week at least. A lot has happened in my… Continue reading Happy Place

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 29 – Knot

Today's word prompt was ‘knot.’ What. A. Day. My stomach has been knots. I've been on a new level of on edge today. I collected my giant bag of medication from the hospital, took it and it literally knocked me out. Dot was back at the vets and got the all clear which is incredible… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 29 – Knot

Home

I'm home! Doctors weren't over the moon but I feel ready to be treated in the comfort of my own house instead of a sticky germ filled ward! Just sunk into bed with my creature comforts and it feels amazing. I'm a bit all over the place and a little overwhelmed by everything that's happened… Continue reading Home

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 26 – Lucky

No word prompt today as I've just got some things on my mind that I can witter on about! I've been in hospital a lot in my life but this time has been different.

Today's word prompt is ‘help.’ Incredibly ironic. I'm currently in intensive care but nothing will ruin my June Challenge. It's really hard to write so I'll be brief. Love one another, never take your health for granted and accept any and all help you can get because it's never a weakness. Goodnight x

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 22 – Peace

Today's word prompt is ‘peace.’ How do we find inner peace? I used to believe I'd only feel this when everything in life had slotted into place, but I'm realising that through 99% of life there's always something we would change. It's rare we're ever completely happy with our lot. I found that the secret… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 22 – Peace

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 21 – Rose

Today's word prompt is ‘Rose.’ I wake up every day at 5:15am. I'm lucky that I'm surrounded by fields and the sun absolutely pours through my window uninterrupted at the crack of dawn. Today I had a bit of a lie in, I rose from my pit at around 7 and I needed it! I… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 21 – Rose

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 20 – Farm

Today's word prompt is ‘Farm.’ Ahhhh what a day! For those of you that are new here I've mentioned before that I have a erm...colourful mental health history.

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 19 – Sibling

I have been blessed with 3 best friends, 3 allies. I've been nurtured and shown the way by my older sisters, and loved the responsibility of protecting my younger brother. I have the best memories of being kids; all I remember is laughing and it's so fulfilling seeing them all grow into the beautiful human… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 19 – Sibling

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 18 – Droplet

Today's word prompt is ‘droplet.’ I am exhausted. I feel like I could sleep for days. I'm burnt out, nodding off in work, driving with my windows wide open and singing really loud to keep me alert. I'm forever yawning, hiding under-eye bags, sleepy, losing concentration, moody. I sleep like a baby! No waking up.… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 18 – Droplet

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 17 – Breeze

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!

Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 16 – Rabbit

Today's word prompt is 'rabbit.' How ironic after my post on day 13 about having to say goodbye to my girl Dorothy. Following that I didn't really know where to go with today's word! All I've done for the past few days is think about Dot and my other rabbits and how everything is soon to change. One… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 16 – Rabbit
