I was once told that I use the word ‘love’ too often and if it was said too much it lost it’s meaning. Well b***s to that! I love lots of things. Plus, the word ‘love’ just rolls nicely off the tongue, ‘like’ is too much effort 😛 So here is my list of things I love, by no means is this list exhaustive. Dogs Chocolate Trees Sunshine Snow Road Trips Holidays Cookies Ducks Christopher Chris My Mum My Dad My brother My friends Hayley My family My car My life My TARDIS blanket Music Films Parks … Continue reading Things I love (There’s a lot of stuff)
How often are you comparing yourself to others? Do you look at other people and wish you had their hair, their shoes, their money? Do you tell yourself that their children are progressing far quicker than yours? They’ve lost more weight than you? Do you constantly ask why they have everything? How is it fair that they have their dream job, dream house, new car, perfect relationship, well-behaved children… Stop! Stop it right now. I mean it, stop it right this second. Those lives that you see are not perfect. I can assure you that no matter how ‘together’ you … Continue reading Keeping up with the Jones’

Hello! yes I know, Tuesday’s are supposed to be short story days, unfortunately my short story seemed to lack an ending so it’s Haiku’s today 🙂 Doctor Who? you ask, He’s the mad man with a box The bow tie wearer The naked tree branch, It sways in the wind, so harsh. Still so beautiful. Raindrops kiss my face, The tears run so freely now, Mistaken for rain. If I were to stay I would need more than you promise Actions speak louder… Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. Follow your dreams … Continue reading Haiku’s
I have no doubt what so ever that mental illness is real. I know it is real, I’ve witnessed it first hand, I’ve dealt with it on a personal level. However I do believe to some extent that we are mollycoddling ourselves and exacerbating the situation. As much as awareness needs to be raised in regards to mental health and in keeping people safe we also need to stop viewing it as a personality trait. It is never something to be ashamed of but it’s not something to be proud of neither. As an anxiety sufferer with PTSD and … Continue reading Stop labelling yourself
Watch the sunshine fade, The remnants of the day, Gone without a trace. The mirror shows truth. A reflection cannot hide. A story, so sad. Sweet sticky buns, A tasty treat for tea-time Sugary goodness. Running, running, fast You will not escape from me, Keep on running, fast. With a cup of tea, I can take on the whole world, Nothing can stop me. Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow, next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂 ‘Blind faith is … Continue reading Wednesday Haiku’s
I enjoy writing Haiku’s. They seem so simple because you have an easy set of rules to stick to but it gets harder and harder. Especially if you want them to make some sort of sense. I could write total gibberish to be honest and sometimes I might. Wednesdays from now on will be my Haiku day. I hope I don’t start repeating myself 🙂 Enjoy ♥ Where are you going? The girl on the bus, where? Will you make it there? I am not a thing, I possess much more than that. My vision is set. Time is never … Continue reading Just some Haikus
If you know me, I mean really, really know me, you will know that I have always been prone to having slight anger issues, temper tantrums if you will. The slightest thing could set me off and it was always genuinely uncontrollable. Until recently I actually thought that I was just a miserable sod, an angry little dwarf as my friend Hayley once referred to me as. Well I’m neither of those things, I’m actually a really happy person, especially if I happen to see a doggy! I have discovered that my anxiety is to blame for my many … Continue reading Angry!!!
