Last Minute Ideas For Mother’s Day

I don’t believe in making my mother feel special on just one day in the year but often I get so caught up in life that I forget to remind her of how much she means to me. So this Mother’s Day (9th May 2021) I plan to take out time to make my mum…

IWD| Letter To My Younger Self

Dear 15 Year Old Me, It’s not going too well, is it? Teenage years are hard and your early 20s even more so but eventually you’ll figure it out (not really :P). I wish I could make a whole binder of advice to give to you but this short letter will have to do for…

5 Things I Want To Change About Myself

While I haven’t made any resolutions for 2021, I do feel like there are some aspects about myself that I need to work on. These are qualities or traits about myself that bother me a lot. The crazy part is that even though I see myself repeat these – I don’t do much to change…

December made me very happy as I hope it did you. The New Year usually feels different but it doesn’t this time thanks to restrictions (self or government imposed) that are still in place. While we’d all like to believe that the new year means that our past slate is wiped clean, it often doesn’t…

Happy Christmas Eve, people! As I write this post, Santa has already started making his stops in New Zealand. If you aren’t already – track Santa here!

Taking Life Decisions – Toughest Part of Adulting

“I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.” My first memory of how tough choices can be to make is Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken”.

Me| Living With Anxiety

Despite being on a pretty good run with posting last week, I’ve again fallen behind on my writing schedule. It’s been a little difficult to sit and concentrate on writing a full post. I’ve so many posts on the way but I just couldn’t concentrate on finishing any over the past few days. Instead of…

And There She Began Again

She walked around the apartment, the smell of the freshly painted walls made her feel dizzy. The space was smaller than she had wanted but something felt right when she walked through the doors of the apartment for the first time. There were half opened and some closed boxes of her stuff lying around everywhere….
