I figured that given that I like to label my blog as a 'life blog', I should record the most important thing to happen in my life this year. I mean, really, it's not all that difficult to take that title given that not much has happened this year thanks to Corona, but it's still… Continue reading Why I Quit my Job in Lockdown
I'll begin this post by saying that there are a plethora of resources and articles out there on this topic, and if you're looking for information or real in-depth analysis on racism and the Black Lives Matter movement, you should look elsewhere. I am far from an expert on this topic, so much so that… Continue reading Black Lives Matter
Four weeks ago, I created a Twitter account so that I have a social media presence for my writing business. As such, I'm using it to follow writers, publishers, general writer-y things, and a few mindset positivity accounts for good measure. I am cultivating a dream, after all!

I've only been banging on about it for 12 months, and can now confirm that it absolutely exceeded any expectations I could ever have held. I… Continue reading Hen Do Reflection
New Year’s eve is my absolute favourite day of the year. I love having the chance to reflect on another year gone by. I love the prospect of a fresh start, a chance to set new intentions and the opportunity to make a real go of them. Most of all I love the new chance… Continue reading New Year’s Eve
Regardless of the fact that I seem to find myself uncharacteristically un-festive this year, I do love Christmas. I love the season of giving and gratitude, love and reflection. I love spending time with loved ones and being grateful for our health and happiness, and the ability to spend time all together. But this year,… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly
I originally wrote a post pondering whether it is difficult to be kind, on 11th October 2014, just a little over 4 years ago now (original post can be found here). I contemplated why it seemed to be so difficult to do small kind actions. 4 years on, I still don't have the answer, but… Continue reading Kindness or Interference? – 4 years on.
As I was importing some old blog posts over to my new blog, I found myself reading and reflecting on the content I created over 6 years ago now at the ripe old age of 21.
