Life isn’t easy

May 29, 2017

When you are young, you have hopes and dreams for your life. You dream about going to university, getting a degree. That’s usually followed by getting a job you love. Somewhere along the way, you hope you fall in love with that special someone, maybe have a family with them and grow old together. Sometimes though, these remain dreams. The reality, which no one warns you about, is quite different. Sure you might work hard, go through university or college…

A couple of days ago, I wrote this poem above and shared it on Instagram. It’s been something I’ve been struggling with the last twelve to eighteen months.

In that sense, I’ve made the best decision. I…

I have had nightmares as a child wondering how I’d cope. Now, while I no longer have nightmares, I guess the inevitability of it all is always there in my subconscious. However, my own death? That’s not something I worry about too often. It’s not because I think I won’t die…

Scare yourself #FridayReflections

February 10, 2017

When life gets busy, we tend to run on autopilot. We wake up, go to work, get home, cook, clean, relax and sleep. And then we repeat it all over again. If you’re like me, you probably like routine. But routine can get a bit tiring and we need a break every once in a while. But sometimes, that break doesn’t always have to be a big holiday. Sometimes, doing something new, something different can be just as exciting and…
