Quite recently I had the privilege to come into contact with a start-up American-based company, My Trending Stories, who seek out different types of bloggers and offer them a writing opportunity that gives them exposure to larger audiences. When I first received the message I was sceptical in that it had only been a few months… Continue reading Life Update #1: Achieving my Goals
It's been over several months since I've had this concept, this train of thought and it's been something I've ruminated over many times both personally and also externally, should I really mention this? It is really a blog-worthy topic? And then I realised I can't be alone in thinking in such an existential way and… Continue reading Who Am I Really?
Mini update: things have been super duper busy recently, and getting busier so I've been writing more short poems and thoughts rather than self-development articles. Bit I promise I'll be posting more often soon!! A paradox, a constant oscillation, unchanging, yet changing, too much to see. A box, something to be defined, but whom? alas,… Continue reading A Box & A Paradox
This is the first time in two years I've posted a creative writing piece, this one, in the form of a poem. A bit of context, when I came back from what is my ancestral home I had a mini breakdown where I started to question who I really was. After thinking I realised that… Continue reading The Different Versions of Me
By far one of the hardest lessons I ever learnt was how to spend time alone, without being lonely. I know from past experiences, the term "alone time" can either spark a panic response which can lead to feelings of loneliness, isolation and fear of rejection, or it comes as a sign of relief, a… Continue reading 15 Ways To Spend Your Alone Time
If you've read my last few posts, you'll know the past week or so was probably one of the worst experiences I've had in my life so far. I say this knowing full well it's an exaggeration because I know life will have many more of these unexpected surprises that I cannot control waiting for… Continue reading WEEKEND IN MY LIFE: Reset Routine!!
This is literally the theme of this month, being on mute as if my life had hit stagnation. I love April. There I said it, this year it wasn't particularly great at all, but I'll always be biased towards this month, mainly because it's my birthday month. April, despite it being a very up and… Continue reading April Journal // 2019
After having the absolute worst Easter weekend of my life, and no, I'm not exaggerating, I was living in week old pajamas with an unwashed face, unkempt hair and just a significant low mood, (I have a history of self-neglect with low mood) it was time to rise from the ashes, or for me, rise… Continue reading 21 Lessons + My Birthday Journal
It's been a while, a pretty long while since I've been in the whole blogging game with regular uploads. It's almost as if it's a struggle, trying to find that work/life balance, and knowing that there will be ups and downs when it comes to writing, I've mentioned it before, but it still rings true,… Continue reading A Little Update & My Favourite Podcasts!!
Hello, and of course a huge welcome back to my blog, I finally caved in, 4 months into the year and gave myself a break from my blog, for all sorts of reasons. It's coming up to the end of my work as an assistant clinical psychologist, and my university assignments are due soon. It's… Continue reading Versatile Blogger Award!!
Pardon this impromptu blog post which is literally being spun out of a realisation that came to me less than hour ago. Yes, I know, my perfectionist self is screaming, there is a lot of internal screaming going on because as opposed to the many other things I write about, there is no plan. There… Continue reading When Healing Requires Pain.
