So I am 7 days in to my 30 Days of Positivity and I just thought I would write a little update on how I am finding things.
As with any new challenge that you embark on , in the early days you are brimming with energy, you have lots of ideas, and its all very exciting. The path you want to follow is as clear as day and you are striding forth with gusto ready to make things happen.Read More »
I have been thinking a lot about this in recent months. I know it sounds cliche , but I have been trying to find myself again, I wouldn’t say reinvent myself as I rather like me as I am but, who am I now? which path should I be taking next?, where do I belong?.

I had no plans to write this post until I realised that it has recently been my 8 month anniversary, it has been 8 months since my life was turned upside down, and through no choice of my own I was forced to leave, more or less overnight, and with pretty much nothing.
Actually , why am I still dressing it up?.
I was aggressively forced out of my home and left with nothing and nowhere to go , no time to find a place to stay and therefore no chance of keeping my job. I was denied the opportunity to regain any level of independence or ability to maintain any level of lifestyle for myself. This wasn’t a stranger that did this to me, this was someone who I loved and trusted, someone who I thought I was building a life with.Read More »
……its ok to feel like you want to throw them at someone ….
The usual ending to this as we all know is ‘make lemonade’, I looked up the phrase out of curiosity and courtesy of our friends at Wikipedia is said to be this…
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is a proverbial phrase, used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity or misfortune. Lemons suggest sourness or difficulty in life, just like lemonade.

I love you.
Recently a male friend of mine told me that he loved me, he has said it now on more than one occasion. I reacted by not responding and then ultimately gave him a long lesson in why he shouldn’t be so free and easy in using those words, that it was ‘dangerous territory’ and would only ‘end in tears’, and if he wasn’t going to do anything about it then he shouldn’t say it.Read More »
I have dipped in and out of Yoga for a few years now, I have always exercised it is just part of who I am. I started off in my early 20’s with aerobics and then started playing around with weights, and in more recent years found Crossfit, wherever I have moved, sizing up the local gym and what that has to offer is second to looking at the place where I am going to live.Read More »
The wonderfuI world of Social Media!!.
I recently reviewed my own relationship with social media by having a bit of a ‘detox’ for a few days. At first it was a little tricky , I would find myself with my phone in my hand looking at the first page of Instagram before I had even realised what I was doing. This soon went after a couple of days and whilst I did miss my daily dose of Donald Trumps tweets!!, I didn’t feel like I had lost an arm or was hugely missing out on anything!. A couple of years ago I successfully managed to come off Facebook with hardly blinking an eye, so I kind of knew it wasn’t going to be a huge problem for me.Read More »
This particular post has taken me a longer time to write than anticipated. That is because I am having to draw on some very personal experiences , and as I have mentioned before I am extremely protective of my private life and my privacy, so this is a real challenge for me and it means I am very much out of my comfort zone. I also want to do this in as much of a respectful way as I can, there is a very fine line between blurting out your story and becoming gossip fodder, and writing about experiences with the hope of helping not only yourself come to terms with things, but also hoping you will strike a chord in a positive way with others to help them turn around a situation they may be faced with. My aim is for the latter.Read More »
Self love is so important and this follows on nicely from my last post, to be able to truly love others and live well , you must first truly love yourself. To be able to manage relationships without hurting other people you need to ensure you take care of your own wellbeing.Read More »
