Life is funny isn’t it. You can never predict the twists and turns it’ll take! For instance, if someone told the 21 year old version of me that in 8 years time I’d be living nearly 200 miles from home with a whole new family, I’d most likely laugh in their face. That’s not to … More A Whole New World
I’ll just jump straight into it: I don’t feel right referring to God as He or Him. Is this due to my raging feminist mindset or my insatiable need for gender equality? No… it’s really not. I personally prefer to use the pronoun They. This decision of mine is based on two factors: Formlessness. Maybe … More I Don’t Think God Is A He
In eight years you’ve taught me so much. How to bargain, how to be soft, how to put someone else’s needs before my own, how to practice what I preach, how to set boundaries, but most importantly, how to give the best cuddles! You’re a blazing ball of energy that lights up this family with … More My Promise To You
Whether you purposely clicked on my blog just now, or whether you fell down a rabbit hole and ended up here, or even if you’re just scrolling around as a means of procrastination or out of sheer boredom…I just want to say thank you.

The virus doesn’t move, people move it. We stop moving, the virus stops moving, the virus dies. It’s that simple. As of last night, Boris finally declared a police-enforced lock-down in the UK: hallelujah! As per the new “rules” we’re allowed to leave the house for one form of exercise a day; to buy basic … More Is Smiling Banned Too?!
Sometimes I wonder, whenever I curse myself and lament the annoying tendency that I have to “overthink”, have I actually been overthinking, or have I simply been thinking… Rarely are my thoughts ever obsessive or irrational (well at least they don’t appear to be in my mind!). They don’t really stress me out and there’s … More To Think Or To Overthink, That Is The Question
I want to make a difference in this world, however minute it may be. Whether it’s making someone feel loved, or understood, or inspired, even just for a split second, my entire existence will feel like it was worth it. I’m not money-driven, never have been. Material wealth comes and goes. But if I’m fortunate … More I Was Here
Head in hands, elbows planted on the mahogany frame of his bedroom window, he gazes laxly into the distance. It’s a Saturday in early Autumn and it’s 6.32pm. Pink, yellow, orange and purple flecks have been smeared across a bluey canvas, dotted with little clouds – almost like an afterthought. The sweet sound of birds … More There’s No Place Like Home
Random thought of the morning: we get stressed and unhappy when the fantasy in our minds doesn’t align with our reality. In our day-to-day lives we hold so many expectations and often don’t allow for any wiggle space, everything must happen exactly how we want it to, when exactly we want it to.

My mind is not my friend. It tells me to skip my workout today, I’ve been good all week, why over exert myself? It tells me to start applying for jobs tomorrow, there’s no real urgency today. It tells me to cancel plans, I deserve some me-time. It tells me to ignore the sink full … More My Mind Is Not My Friend
