Over the past 18 months I have seen that there are so many things going on in my life that needed to change.  I’m aware some of these things are out of my hands and no matter what I say or do, I con’t control the actions of some people.  I’ll admit, it baffles me why they are doing what they are doing and their actions have made me ill, ill enough to have to be admitted to hospital.  I have a number of long term chronic health conditions and they don’t react well to stress.  Someone is hell bent… View Post

There will come a time in anyone’s life where they begin to question themselves. They will look in the mirror and immediately start picking out all of the things they don’t like, and how they would change them in a heartbeat if they could. The thing is, while there’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself by getting fit and healthy, it’s very easy to obsess over things that shouldn’t be obsessed over, and that’s because we all have our own list of insecurities. This is perfectly normal and happens to everyone, but having said that, it doesn’t make it… View Post

Having your own home gives you the power to express yourself creatively and incorporate your own personal style into your living space. Renovating and decorating your house or apartment can be a fun time, and it has the power to transform a plain room into a sanctuary. Deciding on what colors to paint your walls, whether you like funky eclectic furniture or sleek modern pieces, and altering the overall vibe of your living quarters to match your personality is a great way to instil that feeling of “home” within your space. But if you are on a tight budget, you… View Post

Up until nearly 6 years ago I worked in an office.  I’d been an office worker since I left University after my Master’s Degree and joined the Civil Service.  I always used to think about how lovely it would be to work from home and not leave the house at 6am every morning to get to work and then have a long tiring commute home every night.  The thought of saving around 2 1/2 hours a day on my commute and just rolling out to bed to work in my PJs all day seemed like heaven!  When I left the… View Post

No matter how hard we try to deny it, getting older is inevitable. Year by year, month by month, day by day, and even second by second we are aging, and this fact of life scares some people into wishing they could stop the clock. Many men and women even turn to cosmetic procedures, face lifts, botox, and any new anti-aging trend comes along. They think that this will bring contentment and stop the aging process, and maybe even have hopes to reverse it. But spending hundreds of dollars on face creams and serums or thousands of dollars on surgical… View Post

The chances are that when you first landed your current role you were over the moon. You had probably just left school or graduated from university and the concept of having a career and bringing home an income was an exciting one. However, now that a few years have past, you’re no longer as keen on your role as you once were. Perhaps you thought that you would move quickly up the ranks but unfrotunately that hasn’t happened, and has left you feeling unsuccessful and wholly unsatisified.
