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
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 ‘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
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
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.

My goal for the beginning of 2019 was to write one blog post a month for the whole year and it's going well, the more I write the more I'm realising just how much I enjoy it. BUT I often find myself making excuses; I'm tired from work, I don't have time, the list goes… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge!
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.
This one is a biggie for me and a subject I've been nervous to write about for fear of being judged, oh the irony. Growing up during my teen years I noticed that I never felt the same pressure as my peers to conform to a certain look, style or fashion and I wasn't overly… Continue reading Self-esteem, body confidence and the media
