Stop Competing

My friends and family, colleagues and network all come in different shapes and sizes. They all have different professions, hobbies and interests. They all dress differently, look different and have their own values and opinions. Isn’t diversity great? So why do we spend so much time comparing ourselves to others? Why do we have to …

Unconditional Love

If you’re struggling with relationships and your love life is less than desirable you should get yourself into Instagram and read some of the insight on love. I’m serious! I follow people like Mark Antony who writes the most beautiful love poetry, Loveology, RM Drake. I saw a two great quotes this morning ‘people don’t …

Be Who You Want To Be

Are you happy being you? Do you feel and act like you? Or are you still finding out who that is? I think being happy in your own skin is a wonderful thing. I guess I’ve reached an age where I realise that it makes you happier being you, than it does trying to fit …

I spent last Christmas feeling pretty down and on Good Friday I’m feeling the same. All I want out of life is someone to share moments with. These moments are so important.

What Success Looks Like

Buy more, spend more, make more money, bigger, better, faster, now. I wrote a piece recently saying I want to be with someone who has a career. Someone that’s successful. …

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 …

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 …
