A Series of (un)Fortunate Events

I hate writing these "I've been absent, but I'm back!" posts, but I feel one is necessary to give a little bit of context about where I am currently at. You see, I've been absent, but I'm back. It's been over a year since my last post, which was back on the 1st October 2018, …

Creating Confidence: Be the Expert

Confidence is something that many of us struggle with; it's something I have struggled with all my life. Today, I'd like to tell you one of the ways I help myself to be confident in a situation I'd normally suffer in. Recently, I've took up a role within my workplace as a Coach. As part …

Taking my Own Advice & Leaving that Comfort Zone

One of my favourite topics, to write about, to talk about, and to reflect on, is that of comfort zones. Comfort zones can be perceived as bubbles that we feel at our most content. In them, we are not challenged, not really, and we take little to no risks. A comfort zone will look different …

Changing Language, Changing Perspective

The way we talk about something, be it a task ahead, a chore we have to do, or just anything or anyone in life we have to deal with, actually has an astounding effect on our perspective of the thing in question.   Let me tell you a story of how this blog post came …

Cracks in the Porcelain

I think it's healthy to keep in mind that not everything is perfect and that everything has flaws. Last week I discussed that, in an ideal world, Social Media should be a place of acceptance and empathy; it honestly has that power, it's just more often than not it is abused. The thing is, whilst …

Making My World Small

One phrase my therapist mentioned within our first ever interaction was that I was "making my world small". That stuck with me. It's a simple sentence that encompasses so much about how I deal with my problems and how I cope with anxiety/depression. It'll be different for everyone, we're all on our own journeys, but …

Catching That Snowball

Last week, you may have noticed, I didn't post anything at all. I didn't write any posts, I didn't reply to any comments, I didn't read any other blogs. The reason for this is I was having a bad week. Work ramped up, and still is ramping up, and I was feeling more and more …

Under Pressure

Pressure tends to be synonymous with negativity. When we're under pressure to produce something, we often feel stunted or limited. However, pressure in some forms can be a use for good. Anyone who knows me, or has read even just a couple of my posts, will know I procrastinate.... A lot.... I've recently learned that …

27th April to 3rd May: A Friday Feeling

Wow these posts roll around quickly! Probably testament to how busy I've been, or at least felt; so lets get started. Last weekend was one I had been looking forward to for a long time, which is why last week felt slow as I found myself counting individual seconds until it arrived. Friday, when the …
