Never Stop Trying

I try not to write posts that are overtly personal or have my opinion in. But I have learnt over the last year of being single that love and the way that we show and receive it is a personal thing. Some people show love by physical affection or sex, others through acts of service …

Merry Bloody Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… well for some of us. Christmas Eve is my favourite day of the year. Cooking, wrapping presents, making mince pies, getting everything ready for the big day tomorrow. So why are so many people miserable? Road rage, shop rage and general grumpiness is rife. I get a …

Give Yourself a Break

Gosh I haven’t written in a while. Sorry about that. I’ve been working very hard on getting myself better. Anyone with mental health illness knows that some days are good and some are bad. The same goes for months. The same for years. Sometimes we all need a break to just look after ourselves. I …

Find Your Tribe

I’m sure I’ve written this before… but anyhoos… do you love your friends? I mean really love? Not just ‘oh yeah I like hanging out with them’ but ‘I can’t live without these people in my life’ kind of friendship. The people who you’re happy to be you in front of. I recently met a …

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 …

Cherished Moments

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. These are the memories that make life so special. All the day to day stuff doesn’t matter, jobs, houses, cars, money, none of …

Create Magic Everyday

One of my close friends told me recently that romance doesn’t matter. I totally disagreed. I create magic and romance in every day of my life. It’s Valentine’s Day today. I ordered myself a treat. I’ve made afternoon tea for my mum and children. And I made them valentines cards as a little surprise this …

Valentines Day

I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. When I’ve been in a relationship it’s always a bit of a let down and when I’ve been single it’s like the whole world is in love and you’re the only person feeling lonely. Why do we put so much pressure on one day? And why …

Snow Day – Have Some Fun!

Sometimes we get so caught up in life’s busyness that we forget to actually have fun. And when you’re ill you just want to hide away from the world. Mindfulness teaches us to live in the moment. So let yourself live for a moment and enjoy what’s happening right now. If you’ve got snow today …
