In the midst of a pandemic, how do we try to utilise this time for good when all we can see is the bad? Caring for our mental health is something that is very close to my heart, due to the struggle i've endured with my own; and like many of us, I chose to… Continue reading MA MA MA MYYY CORONA.
To say that we are in strange and uncertain times, is probably the biggest understatement of the century. Anxiety is all around us and it hits like a wave daily. Currently in the UK, we are in lockdown due to the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, which has hit countries before our own and demolished the lives… Continue reading Rife.
I’ve not written anything in a few weeks, and I hate it when this happens. Usually I have so many thoughts that inspire a good piece of writing, but recently, I’ve had thoughts and I’ve not been able to fuel them into anything I felt was worthy of publishing. I write because I want people… Continue reading real talk.
What does it mean to live resiliently? I'm not sure... I guess it's deciphering what's worth a reaction against what's not.

New Year, New Me - Paha, just kidding! New Year is a great time to reflect, especially when we're leaving a whole decade behind, and starting anew. However, i'm one of those people that continually self reflects and seeks optimum happiness always and often evaluates events as and when they arise. Does this stop me… Continue reading 2020 Vision.
I have the same thoughts each December. I evaluate my year in methodic detail, as a sense of cleansing therapy. I think about each moment in the year. Each accomplishment, each failure, each mediocre thing that's happened in the last twelve months and I dwell to the point of antagonisation. What a crazy and bizarre… Continue reading You do you boo.
But that's okay! Not being liked by everyone I met was something that I struggled with for literally years. I’d get myself in to uncomfortable situations because I didn’t want to say no to things out of fear that it would have a negative effect on the way in which people then perceived me. I… Continue reading Not everyone will like you…
Knowing your worth is something that takes time, it's like a fine art. It develops and once you have that knowledge everything else comes effortlessly.
