Having an ‘off’ day

We can’t always expect to feel fabulous 100% of the time. It could be illness, hormones, what you’ve eaten, how others treat you and an innumerable amount of other daily things that can knock your boat. But how do you bounce back? Let me tell you about a boat rocking day and how I managedContinue reading “Having an ‘off’ day”

Seeing your worth

Let me tell you a story. A good looking 18 year old with the world ahead of him and a career in the army pending, meets a girl in a bar and things get serious. The boy and girl fall in love, the girls a little older with two children and her own little home.Continue reading “Seeing your worth”

Healing from a bad relationship

My friend has started to turn a corner on her healing and this is how she did it… 1. She talked, a lot, I listened patiently, and she talked about the same thing a few times but she talked. 2. She cut off those who didn’t serve her. Sounds odd yes but if someone isContinue reading “Healing from a bad relationship”

Feeling depressed and sad.

I have mixed emotions when thinking over the past year. So many bad things have happened. Not the least of them Covid. In between isolation episodes, being physically attacked and fearing death, thinking of estranged family, anxiety and depression; sometimes it’s difficult to think of anything good. I occasionally feel as though I can’t rememberContinue reading “Feeling depressed and sad.”

If you follow me you probably see a few posts with me raging about my migraines. I live in faith that today, that will change. Finally getting through to a GP who listened and wanted to help, I’ve taken two naproxen and the pain has gone. Other symptoms are still present, the neck and earContinue reading “Migraine medication”

Adult nightmares

I’m in bed with my partner, the room is slightly lit by an outside light and he snores unaware I am awake, I hear a noise,Continue reading “Adult nightmares”

Be Yourself, Love Yourself.

A friend of mine has just watched a webinar on ‘What Pushes Men Away’, this friend now believes they know what they did wrong in a previous relationship. Wow. No. This is not right at all. If you love someone, you love them with all their imperfections, unconditionally. Never ever change who you are asContinue reading “Be Yourself, Love Yourself.”

Journey of the mind

I have no shame in saying I’m having some counselling right now. Talking and opening up about past events you haven’t been able to let go is good for your soul. Bottling all those emotions over years and years can weigh you down so much and create a black hole, that’s ever expanding. Yesterday’s sessionContinue reading “Journey of the mind”

Re framing thoughts

We all have negative thoughts from time to time, some more so than others so I wanted to write a little blog on reframing. I myself have looked into the garden on a grey day and seen a mess. What I see when I look closely though is something completely different. Those toys show myContinue reading “Re framing thoughts”
