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.

It’s OK to Feel Sad

Feeling sad sometimes is OK. Life is made up of moments, they can’t all be happy and they’re certainly not all perfect. But feeling sad and crying all the time is not OK. You need to learn to recognise when sadness has turned to depression. You might wake up, feel tired, not want to get …

Don’t Make Resolutions, Make Change

Sorry for the trite New Year’s post… but I know so many people that make resolutions that they just won’t keep! I’ll keep it short for your sore heads! Maybe instead of making a mental list of unachievable things, you should write down a list of your hopes and aspirations for the year? Maybe a …
