Changing your perspective

It doesn’t matter what lengths you go to in your every day, there will always others who think what they think. It happens in every-day life, it happens in your working lives. You may also read about people’s ‘real lives’ in magazines.

For anyone whose lives have changed and who have moved on, where they have found success, they have done what they needed to do, but even moving on comes at a cost, when they fail to get the recognition …

Understanding and Change

I don’t hold back because I know I would be in a worse place mentally. Since I started writing, I have always written about my thoughts and feelings, my emotions. I know that if I didn’t, my mental health would take a knock.

Thoughts on handling Covid-19

I never dreamed when starting my blog, I’d end up having to write about a virus that would affect my life greatly, our lives in fact. I also don’t think I’ll come to terms with Covid-19 and its handling by the UK Government. When I think I’m getting there, a little voice in my head says ‘no.’

Live and Grow

Something inspirational:

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”
