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!

Deep Pain, Brings Deep Connection.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve had so many in-depth conversations with people: old friends, new friends and clients. These conversations were so meaningful that I found myself reflecting on why. Each of us, although different, had one commonality that allowed the conversation to run so deep: we have all endured deep emotional pain. […]

Addiction Is Only Simple To The Ignorant.

I recently saw a post on LinkedIn that reminded me of how ignorant people can be when it comes to drug addiction (or any addiction for that matter). This chap’s post said: “Don’t resort to taking harmful drugs in a bid to cure wounds of the past. Your errors don’t define you, your reaction does. […]

Have you ever wanted something so badly that it was all you could eat, breathe and sleep? It’s that very thing you desire more than anything else in this world.
