Different is good

I walked passed my old college yesterday and wished I could go back and do it all over again. We always think that we would make different choices, but would we? Would we do it all over just to end up in the same place, it seems pretty pointless. I have had a really bad…

Inside

I have been itching to write today. There was something about the rustle of the trees, the blue sky dotted with splotchy clouds, and the feel of the wind in my hair. They’ve reignited the fire within me and I feel ready to face the world again. I’ve spent a lot of time in my…

What I’ve learned about self-love?

I see so many people on social media complaining about fake love. There’s even a Drake song about it. But how can we expect anyone to show us real love when we fail to show ourselves real love. I thought self-love was about being comfortable in your skin and liking the way you look. As…

Regaining control of the private life

There are different worlds. There is the real world we live in. There is the world we create in our minds. Then there are the worlds we live in through our phones, social media, movies, and books. The list goes on. In order for change you must take a step towards it. I have never…

No more tears…

I haven’t updated my blog in a while and every post I do share seems to start with this fact. It is becoming repetitive and we must not let anything except for positivity become repetitive. I guess I can say I have been a bit distracted lately but no distractions now. Life has been a…

Seeing the light in a dark world

Following on from my last post about writer’s block, I got caught up writing about Flash I thought if I carried on it would have been two long winded. I explained why I hadn’t written but the truth is I have been writing but anything I have written lately shows my vulnerability and unleashes something…

Getting over it and moving forward

They call it writer’s block. I’m not really sure how you can define it but I’ve struggled to write anything lately. It started with finding a new job. The job wasn’t one that I wanted but felt I needed and by the second day I was ready to crawl into a hole thinking how I…

If I had a superpower…

I wish I could read minds. Not because I care about what other people think of me. When I was younger that was possibly the main reason. ‘Do they think I’m pretty?’ ‘Do they like what I am wearing?’ And the big question: ‘Do they like me?’ But who cares. What does it matter if…

If you believe you can, you will!

Like most people, it has taken me a while to discover my strengths and weaknesses. During my time in education, I only seemed to notice my weaknesses and it convinced me I wasn’t really good at anything so I went through life trying as hard as I could knowing I wouldn’t succeed because I knew…

My reasons…

Unfortunately, I have been cursed. I will inherit genetics that mean eventually arthritis will take over my entire body. But I have accepted this fact although I cannot stop it I feel I can prolong it. Over the past few years, I have been training in order to get into a better shape and feel…

A great book can alter your life…

I have loved books ever since I was younger, and when I attempt to get my nephew to read I can’t help but remember my earliest memories of reading. For every one of use, the first series we read was the Biff, Chip, and Kippa books. I remember when he bought them home from school…

Finding my identity…

As a young child, I was mostly surrounded by family which mostly included extended family. During my time at primary school, I found it difficult to fit in as I was one of the only members of school from an Asian background. I was desperate to go to a high school with a higher concentration…
