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
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
Ready for the backlash from this post but my god I've had enough. I have absolutely zero faith in men as a group of people. I'm well aware I'm hugely generalising and this isn't a post to just bash and hate but I'm at a point where it's unbelievable. Due to past experiences, I am… Continue reading Warning – unpopular opinion.
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
Still in ICU. Just not got it in me today to write. I'm exhausted and so fed up, sorry guys.
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 ‘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 ‘night.’ In my life night time has provided me with two very contrasting experiences. Party. Drink flowing, music blaring, friends aplenty, stupid dancing, heel wearing, dress flaunting, memory making, new beginnings, headache inducing, lipstick smudging, belly laughing, all the eating and most of all, possibilities. Anticipation of what will come and… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 15 – Night
Today's word prompt is ‘delay.’ Due to technical issues in my brain, today's post has been delayed. The last couple of days have absolutely taken it out of me and I just don't have it in me! I like this blog to be a positive place and I can't do that right now. I feel… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Challenge Day 14 – Delay
Today's word prompt is ‘drizzle.’ I live in the north of England, drizzle is part of daily life. It's only so annoying because it's so in between. It's not dry but it's not blowing a gale either. It's just in between. An inconvenience that doesn't provoke any strong reaction other than 'meh.' Reflective of how… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 12 – Drizzle #BledJ
Today's word prompt is ‘lost.’ I imagine there's a period in everyone's life when they feel lost, but it may hold different meaning for different people. It's a phrase I have both used and heard used many times; "I feel lost, I've lost my way, I've lost myself, my motivation, my sense of purpose." What… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 11 – Lost #BledJ
Today's word prompt is ‘surprise.’ When we're stressed, low or anxious it can sometimes feel like there's no getting out of it in that moment. Feeling like there's little control over what your experiencing can make this worse, so here's 5 surprisingly easy things you can do right now that can make you feel a… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 9 – Surprise #BledJ
Today's prompt is ‘chase.’ To some degree, we all seek that which we do not yet have. The two most common desires that people strive for are usually love and money and if not easily obtainable; the chase begins. We've all been there: the inception of a new romantic interest. It's a game, a complex… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 3 – Chase #BledJ
Today's word prompt is ‘sum.’ If I were to ask you who you are, what makes you, you what would your answer be? There are endless possibilities of labels we can apply to ourselves; a parent, an employee, a homeowner, a friend, my race, my sexuality, a car enthusiast, a cheese hater, an animal lover?… Continue reading Blog Every Day in June Day 2 – Sum #BledJ
