Anxiety is a trickster. It makes you feel and believe things that aren’t true, makes you think you’re guilty for things you’re not, and separates you from those around you. This isn’t a lesson in how to beat it, but recognizing when it might beat you.
Talking about AccessxHelenAnderz, Metis Women in Business, Blogging, and why I’m obsessed with it all.
If you’re one of those magical people who can wake up and just ‘be awake’ I’d ask which demon you sold your soul too and how can I get in touch?
So, I’ve completed my first book for the readathon – and to be honest, I’m pretty proud of myself. I haven’t finished a book in two weeks since I was at school, and it’s nice to get that feeling of accomplishment even if the books was – and I’m being generous here – mediocre. This […]
I looked in his eyes as I told him, ‘I can’t have children.’ And he recoiled. ‘That’s so
sad,’ he said. ‘Why?’ I asked. ‘Because… having children – that’s what makes you a woman.
It’s the key biological difference that separates you from a man.’
Then I guess I’m not a woman.
Usually, I preface these reviews with the intro about how I only read three chapters being interrupted by my mum… yada yada. But today’s review is part of a #BlogTour for Anna Ellory and I’ve decided to take a slight detour – so, if you’re ready for the emotional rollercoaster, sitting comfortably etc, I’ll begin. […]
Day 5. Okay… I’ll be the first to admit Day 3 was tricky. Some (my family) might even go as far as to say my mood was ‘extra’ or ‘aggressive’. (There’s no might, those are the actual words my family used to describe me.) But I can confirm that Day 5 finds me in a […]
How do you create tension in the opening chapters of a book, without giving the game away? Without over-egging the pudding and making the tension unsustainable? Without boring your audience into early retirement. Well, You start by using present tense. If everything is happening in the moment, how could you not be caught up along […]
At this point, I’m wondering if giving up added sugar for my health is worth the health of those around me. Because, and I cannot stress this enough, I’m ready to straight-up f**king murder someone.
Day 1. (Explicit) I woke up feeling immediate regret. I needed a cup of tea. I needed strong breakfast tea with a dash of milk and one sugar. Just one couldn’t hurt? I resisted. I’d just drink water. Water is really good for you, I told myself. It’s great for your skin, helps regulate body […]
It’ll be no surprise to most, if not all, of those who know me – I hate my body. This will have a positive outcome I promise! Just keep reading… There’s a lot that frustrates me about my physique, which goes beyond not being as ‘skinny’ as I’d like to be. As you know, I […]
So the ‘on three’ premise works really well so long as my mum and I are in the house around the same time. And because we rarely are, blogs have been coming out sporadically. The Virgo Rising in me wants more consistency and order, so I’m hoping to fill in the gaps with an ‘On […]
We have a new addition to the family. Zoe O’Donnell is a gorgeous springer spaniel puppy, and she’s the light of my life. Admittedly, she’s not my dog – but my brother and his girlfriend are proving to be great dog-parents. They want to take her wherever they go but, unfortunately, that’s not always possible. […]
