Shorts Vol. 1

I’ve been submerged for what feels like far too long. I think in some sense that’s because I felt I had to understand it, stay put and feel through it! As if without doing this I might not ever know how not to be. I sat in tears last week as a world voted for […]

Open

I pride myself on being totally honest in this sphere and I’m thankful that I have a place where I can write out what I’m going through both physically and emotionally, the highs and lows of that, and how as a now 29 year old, pretty average British lass I’m still figuring it all out! […]

What if I Can’t? 

My buddy messaged me yesterday to say she just couldn’t stop doubting herself, and whilst I reeled off (with ease) the 1 million reasons why she really should never doubt herself, the things I see in her every day that make her an incredible human!

Sticks & Stones

Words are so incredibly powerful, I love them which is why my favourite pastimes are to write, read, or listen. But the balance of the universe means that if they’re not helping us they’re hurting us. Do you want to know how many hurtful things I’ve said to myself today?

I’ve been struggling with what to write over the past week as life everywhere seems super crazy; locally, nationally, internationally.  The scale of chaos and hurt being felt by so many is unreal to anything I have ever witnessed.

When life gives you lemons

This past week has been a little crazy. It’s tested my patience, my belief system, my relationships, my career, my view of the world and worst of all my character.

Imperfect

With May seeing Women’s Health UK launch their #inshapemyshape campaign, it seemed only natural to talk about imperfections. With the campaign set to tackle body shaming, I felt for me it extended much further than this. For me being in shape is physical, mental, financial and maybe even spiritual. It’s about tackling the negative self-talk […]

Why Now? 

I’ll start on Monday, or the 1st of the month! Next week I’ll make a plan, next month I’ll kick it off, just after this project, or date, or time, or kid! Sound familiar? It does for me! There is always a better time than right now, right?

The Slump

So I ran a marathon, it went pretty well, I loved the experience, and I loved the achievement. It was probably the proudest day of my life. After spending months training and obsessing, I crossed the line on a massive high and then slumped down with a beer and a smile that I was sure […]
