Don’t Settle For Less

It is sad when a relationship ends. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be. Maybe someone’s heart wasn’t it. Maybe it wasn’t the right time. Maybe one person wanted it more than the other. It’s sad, but it’s also positive. I’m a firm believer in true love. I’m a huge romantic. I believe in destiny and …

The Real You is Beautiful

I recorded a video a few weeks ago about keeping it real. I get so fed up of seeing retouched barbie dolls sharing endless pictures of their faces and pumped up models flashing their six packs for the tenth time that day. Normal people have lumps and bumps. Normal people don’t need two hours of …

I Can’t Help It

Something that people with mental health issues probably think, but never say. It’s true, we can’t help it. We have an illness that makes us this way. Would you be angry with someone who was spotty because they have chickenpox? Would be annoyed because someone with a broken leg needs the door holding open for …

Mothers Day 2021

How to Look After People That Are Ill

I’m going to start this blog with a quick note on general illness. If someone you love is ill with the flu, tonsillitis, chickenpox for example. Make them cups of tea, bring them water, get medicine from the pharmacy, cook them food, keep the house quiet, ask them if they need anything, look after them. …

How to be a Good Person

Sometimes the most obvious things pass us by. Sometimes we need someone else to say it for it to sink in. This is my definition of being a good person. This is how you can be better. I’m not finished, I believe we should learn and grow every day. This isn’t meant to be a …

International Women’s Day 2021

To all the women who speak their mind and are called headstrong. To all the women who embrace their curves and are called overweight. To all the sportswomen who are called manly. To all the female business leaders who are called alpha females. To all the quiet women who are called sensitive. To all the …

This Too Shall Pass

If you find yourself in a situation that you don’t want to be in, time can move incredibly slowly. You can slip in to an off mood and feel like you’re stuck. But everything passes. Moments in life can last weeks, months, years or even just a few minutes. I taught myself a technique a …

What’s Stopping You?

I’ve just booked a ticket to go to a local music festival. I haven’t got anyone to go with yet, but I’ve invited a couple of girl friends. It seems big and scary to go on my own, but I know I’ll have an awesome time. I’m trying to plan some fun things to look …
