Fall in love in February #FlourishInsideOut

February 2, 2017

It’s time today to talk about the positive emotion for February as part of the Flourish Inside Out project. This month’s theme is Love. Yes, I know it’s a cliché but why not?! What is love?

Flourish Inside Out in 2017

December 20, 2016

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a little photo go up about two weeks ago saying ‘great things ahead in 2017.’ Regulars to this space might know 2016 hasn’t been a good year for me mentally and neither was 2015. While 2016 had looked promising with a new job, we all know that didn’t work out. And yes, the move towards the end of the year has been great but I have been reflecting a lot on my…
