(It's not all sunshine and rainbows) Disclaimer - Those that know me well know I'm writing a book (or two or three), but in doing so I've lost the regularity in writing and posting the every day stuff - my lessons learned, the people I meet, and my take on this crazy world we live… Continue reading Rags to Riches 💰🌈
Before I embarked on my life-changing adventure I hate to admit that I had become a 'no-can-do-er'. The kind of person that would undersell themselves (not always to others on the outside, but on the inside, in my own head too). 'No you can't do that', 'you'll never be as good at your job as… Continue reading The words you speak become the house you live in 🌻💭🏠

Following a tear-jerking phone conversation with my mum for almost 2 hours today discussing how heart-breaking the recent attack in Manchester was, we had a heart to heart like no other. We discussed being safe (whether that is even attainable anymore), and an attempt to try to take precautions to avoid the monsters of the… Continue reading 22/05. I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart ❤
Fear is an 'essential' part of living, "a human emotion triggered by a perceived threat", in theory to keep us safe. Alike our bodies needing pain receptors so that our brain can send tiny signals through our nervous system to tell us 'That hurt, don't do it again' (when we touch a hot stove or… Continue reading The beautiful thing about fear is that when you run to it, it runs away.
