Be an enthusiast in life

I saw this quote the other week and it resonated so much that I immediately knew that I wanted to write a post influenced by it. Because if there’s one thing life has taught me, it’s that life is far from predictable. What’s more, it can be short and oh so precious. So my personal belief is that it’s really important that we make the … Continue reading Be an enthusiast in life

My body-confidence story

After my last post Is there such a thing as a “Summer body?” and the corresponding photo I used to promote it on Instagram (as above), which incidentally was the first time I felt truly body confident, it lead me to thinking I should share a little of my own journey to body confidence. And what better time, given that it’s just been Easter and many … Continue reading My body-confidence story

Is there such a thing as a “Summer body?”

    Now that Spring has sprung and the weather is supposedly getting warmer we often see people start to remark on how pretty everything is getting. We marvel at the beauty of nature. Yet, there is a very ugly side to this time of year too as we start to see an overriding shift in consciousnesses that we too must be getting ‘prettier.’ As … Continue reading Is there such a thing as a “Summer body?”

Believe there is good in the world

There are times when the world seems like such an awful place, a place without compassion or humanity.

Today, I wanted to carry on with this topic, however this time I want to concentrate on the influence of the images that we see … Continue reading What happens when we’re over exposed to perfect selfies online?

Think before you hit send

Over the past couple of weeks there has been much reported on the television and the social media grapevine about bullying, in particular, cyber bullying and the tragic consequences it’s having on young lives as well as their families and friends. I cannot comment from a parental point of view and will not be dishing out advice on how I think you should raise your … Continue reading Think before you hit send

Kindness and expectation

Yes, you guessed it another post about kindness but can you really ever say enough about this topic? Nope, you can never have enough kindness. Today, I wanted to talk about kindness and expectation. Some of you have perhaps heard of the saying “Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them” and if you’ve never heard … Continue reading Kindness and expectation

Valentine’s: don’t let it grind you down

      Should we talk about that day that’s coming up? I think it begins with a V or something. I mean you probably don’t know what I’m on about because you know it’s not been advertised at all really. Serious eye roll. I think you’d have to be living under a rock to not know what I’m skitting at because even I who … Continue reading Valentine’s: don’t let it grind you down
