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…

The right time to let go…

I feel amazing. I like to believe that if you can’t control it, you can’t worry about it. A while ago, I decided that if something caused me stress or caused me to be unhappy, and it was something that I could control, I was going to let go. I finally did that. For at…

TIME!

The indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole. We say that time flies but then is it possible for time to go slow and fast at the same time. Days turn into weeks, into months, into years and before we know it we will be…

Changing perspective could change your life

It was a dreary Monday morning, yet it marked the first day off Spring. I woke up unusually early filled with positivity and the determination to succeed in the coming day. I have this bad habit of letting my inspiration pass by without acting upon it and I almost did the same today however my…

I am currently sat trying to read but inconveniently the doctors surgery is really busy and noisy today. I gained consciousness around 6 but ended up waking at 6.30 so the noise is causing an unwanted pounding in my head. I find mornings more enjoyable as it gives me the opportunity to do whatever I…

It was a dark night and the cold air was crisp. The streets were empty. No one would be out today. It was the coldest day of the year and the snow which continued to fall covered the trees. The swings creaked in the silence. The girl sat down on the swing and began swinging…

The positives of calorie counting…

Over the past couple of months, it has been difficult to control my diet due to the cold and, also the Christmas period. Last week I decided that I wanted to go on a 21-day challenge cutting out all fried and junk food. I managed it until the weekend came and it was difficult with…

Man Utd vs Liverpool

As a Manchester United fan, I had no doubt that United would win the game comfortably. Maybe I was too cocky. Comparing the teams on paper, I thought they were no match to our team of superstars but was I wrong. The stars I thought were super decided not to show up and so the…

Alter your mind and discover the real you

We are naturally inclined to compare ourselves to others. It’s a habit. Why isn’t our hair like that? Why don’t we look like that? Blah Blah, the list goes on. It took me a long time to finally feel comfortable with myself. It did take 20 years to finally hit puberty but despite this it…

Can the red devils become victorious again?

Its been a steep slope of demise for the red devils since they last won the title in 2013. After three struggling years and three very different managers, their form finally seems to be improving. I must admit in my last post I did criticise Jose Mourinho’s team choice but it seems he finally has…

Can we stop the suffering?

The gloomy weather has kept me indoors binge watching Supergirl. Cheese and superheroes what can be better. This morning was bright and there wasn’t a grey cloud in the sky. I put on my superman t-shirt and threw on a coat and left determined to be productive. As I was walking I looked up at…
