I am sure there thousands of things that I’ve learnt, actually, I am 100% certain that I have learnt millions of things! But here’s a very important list of things that I’ve taken on board in my 30’s and they … Continue reading Some things I have learnt in my 36 years…
Yes, I’m nearly 40! How has this happened? I still feel 18. I remember being 18 and thinking that 40 was REALLY old… and it REALLY isn’t! However, I do wake up most mornings in pain and everything hurts pretty … Continue reading 40 things before 40
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, every day. You … Continue reading We’re not getting married!
‘If you’re going through hell my dear, just keep going’.* Do not stop to dwell on your surroundings. Your current hell is not where you belong, a beautiful paradise is waiting for you. And although the perfection that awaits will ultimately fade and your hell will rear its ugly head once more, just remember that each time you come out of the other side you have grown, changed and rebuilt a little bit more your soul. You have become stronger, in body, mind and spirit. These times will build you up into the most incredible person, equipped to deal … Continue reading If you’re going through hell…
I see these really annoying posts all of the time on social media, generally Facebook. They are sponsored posts usually advertising to me because a friend of mine likes their page… Well, I haven’t liked your page so I don’t want to see your stupid article… anyway, the ones that really rile me are usually along the lines of… ‘10 reasons why your relationship is failing‘. ‘10 ways to stop your relationship from failing‘. ‘Follow these 10 simple rules to save your failing relationship‘. Right, I get it, the relationship market is a big seller, nobody wants to be alone, … Continue reading That’s your advice? Really…?
I enjoy time on my own, I can do as I please, I can eat where I like, I can go where I like and it’s just peaceful and fun. I have also noticed that people are so much nicer to me when I’m alone, as thought they feel sorry for me…which is kind of sad but also great because it means I get really good service 😉 They don’t have to feel sorry for me though, I do lots of things alone and I love it. I go for walks by myself, it’s nice to have company but sometimes … Continue reading My solo travels – First stop…York
I have around ten thousand thoughts an hour. Well it’s probably way more than that…actually I’m going to Google that right now. Okay, so the average person has around 2,000 – 3,000 thoughts per hour. With that in mind I definitely believe that my prediction of 10,000 thoughts an hour for myself is true. I have a hard time living in the now, it stresses me out that I can’t do it so I don’t push it. I live in the now when I can and when it feels natural. When I am practising Yoga or I am going … Continue reading Just for the sake of it.
“I don’t even have a pla…” I love making plans! In fact I love the planning more than the doing. I get excited about all of these wonderful things I’m going to do, then my anxiety kicks in and I freak out. Well it can sod off. I’m busy this year and anxiety can just kiss my ass. And yes I have made a plan of things for each month, judge me all you want, I don’t care. I’m a loser. Plans are exciting and they might not always work out the way you envisage and that … Continue reading “Do you have a plan?”
“Seize the day” “What have you done today to make you feel proud?” I’m certain I’ve said these things before or at least very similar. I’m just being consistent and making sure I get my point across… 😉 or just being mildly irritating, take your pick. I just want to make you aware that you are in charge of your own destiny. It is not pre-determined. Your life is not planned, this isn’t the adjustment bureau. There is no set death day for you. If you flung yourself off of a building, chances are you’re going to die … Continue reading “Today is the first day…blah blah blah”
I’m tired. You’re tired. We’re all allowed to be tired. I’ve got responsibilities and jobs to do and so have you. My tiredness is no more relevant than yours and vice versa. It’s not a competition. I can’t explain how my tiredness makes me feel or precisely how tired I am. Just in the same way you can’t explain yours to me. I read somewhere recently that some people are of the belief that if you haven’t had kids then you don’t really know ‘tired’. I can’t comment because I am constantly knackered and I have had a child for … Continue reading How do you feel about that?
