Taking care of yourself!

As you will know if you read my blog regularly, health and fitness have always played an active part in my life, but have become increasingly important over the last few years. I’ve become more aware of how a healthy mind can influence your overall well-being and how we can support that by what we […]

Sliding doors?!

Sometimes I do think life can be strange, especially if you stop to think about those ‘sliding doors’ moments, which may have taken your life in such a different direction. Does anyone else wonder how much of life is fate and how much of it is based upon a series of decisions, or in some […]

It’s Good to Talk!

When I started writing this blog I couldn’t have imagined how therapeutic I would find the process, as well as the continuous reward I feel from the feedback. After reading this recent article by Hilary Wilce on Rachel Kelly’s website I realise I’m not alone in how writing makes me feel. http://rachel-kelly.net/the-amazing-power-of-pen-and-paper-how-writing-can-help-us/ I guess you […]

Just so I don’t worry anyone reading this that knows me, I […]

You’d think this would be fairly straightforward, after all, how many options do I really have?! But the thing I’m finding […]

Body Confidence!

In the past, I’ve talked quite a bit about the pressures we all put on ourselves by comparing our lives to those around us, which usually only ever ends up making you feel frustrated. Previously I’ve referred to my own situation of where I am in life, rather than the many other comparisons that we live […]

What Next?

What next?….. well, that’s a massive question and one that I have to work out sooner rather than later, but I’m trying not to make any knee-jerk reactions, which is easier said than done! I have already given this so much thought and my theory is to gain as much insight into the various options available before […]
