Legalising Illicit Drugs – The Answer To Controlling A Worldwide Epidemic.

In recent weeks in Australia, the Coroner has advised that testing drugs at music festivals would be beneficial in saving lives. This has caused much debate on social media, and I have to say I’ve found it extremely hard to read some of the ignorant comments made. Comments like “drugs are illegal, so drug takers […]

Synchronicity – A Signpost To The Right Path.

I don’t believe in coincidences, I believe that synchronicity happens for a reason. It’s a signpost from the Universe, letting us know that we are exactly where we are meant to be. I’ve had a few really good synchronicities in the latter half of this year and it coincides with some much needed changes I […]

The Depths Of Drug Addiction.

When I look back to my drug taking days, it seriously frightens the shit out of me. How I’m not dead, I really don’t know. People have died for less than what I put myself through. In hindsight, I can see now that I was subconsciously trying to kill myself. I thought nothing at taking […]

Writing And Poetry – In The Eye Of The Beholder.

Poetry and writing in general is something I’ve done privetly for many, many years. It’s like a little piece of your soul goes into each creation. I think that’s why I’ve always been too scared to share it publicly. This year I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and share my heart online […]

Domestic Violence – Not Always Black And White.

It’s hard for me to admit that I grew up in a house with domestic violence. Partly because my Dad without alcohol was the most beautiful, loving and caring man, and the other part because what went on in my house, was essentially my normal. There was a lot of love and laughter, but unfortunately […]

Grief Leaves A Scar

Grief is something that changes you forever, it never really goes away – you just learn to live with it… It’s been seven and a half years since my Dad died after a fifteen-year cancer battle, and I have to say that I’m a much more emotionally sensitive person since his passing. I don’t walk […]

‘Influencers’ – A Fancy Word For A Manipulator.

I read this fantastic blog post a few weeks ago called ‘Why I dislike Influencers’ – By V Millennial Life Crisis. She talked about the lack of integrity with a lot of these so called social media ‘influencers’, and it really got me thinking about how narcissistic and manipulative these types of people can be.

Societal Pressure On Single And ‘Childless’ Women.

In a few week’s time, I’ll be turning thirty-five. Society keeps telling me I should be married with 2.5 kids and a white picket fence by now. Although, following the herd has never been my style! Like every girl, I’ve dreamed of having the fairytale wedding. Growing up, Cinderella was my favourite bedtime story. I […]

Just Because You Love Someone, Doesn’t Mean They’re Right For You.

I think we’ve all loved someone who isn’t right for us. After all, how could we recognise who is right, if we hadn’t first experienced who was wrong. But unfortunately, too many settle for the wrong one out of fear of being alone. I guess it ultimately comes down to how much we value our […]

Does Societal Pressure Lead To The High Male Suicide Rate?

This week we’ve had World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th September, and sadly on the 9th September, legendary AFL football star Danny Frawley has taken his own life, after years of battling mental health issues. I believe there were many contributing factors with his struggle, work, finances, marriage, etc. It sounds all too familiar […]
