Think Before You Speak

As the years have gone by, people seem to have lost the knowledge of how to properly conduct themselves. The internet and social media provide a platform for free speech and it seems that everyone believes their opinion is valid and wanted. I think it’s a toxic culture that fosters hate and bullying. Why not …

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 …

Fill Your Life With Adventure

Don’t get me wrong, I love my house. I love the village I live in. I don’t want to be a nomad wandering this earth without a base. But I will have adventure in my life. Whether it’s a trek for charity, which I’m looking in to right now. Or living in another country for …

What Success Looks Like

I think our society has a distorted view of what success means. We live in a capitalist world where we sold to at every opportunity. 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 …

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 …

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 …

Live in the Real World

I remember getting my first iPhone. What a revelation. I was working in a design agency and I now had 24 hours access to my emails and the internet. I looked at my phone before I turned over to go to sleep and as soon as I woke up. Clients could email me at whatever …
