When 2017, which I can only describe as the worst year of my life, came to an end I was so determined to change my outlook on life and also how I lived my life.  My life is so far from perfect but despite everything that still effects make life, mainly things out of my control, I am so much happier now.  By making life more simple and taking time out for me I am now much happier in myself and my surroundings. Ever since I came back to the Midlands from Wales in January 2016 I have wanted to… View Post

Let’s be frank; the majority of us feel pretty terrible when we wake up. It doesn’t matter how much sleep we get; we still resemble Frankenstein during the first hour of waking. Our eyes don’t work the way they should, and our limbs certainly don’t feel as though they belong to us. To top it off, your brain may feel like it’s been freshly transplanted before your first coffee. Sadly, we can’t work miracles. We aren’t here to tell you that we can stop those morning blues. It is possible, though, that your bedroom is actually making you more susceptible… View Post

It’s strange how things have to get to such a bad place before you realise that you need to take care of yourself.  For too many years I neglected me.  I put everyone else before myself and honestly believed I didn’t deserve to be happy.  Luckily, and finally my eyes have been opened.  I am trying my hard to be kind to myself. Not pushing myself to keep up with theunrealistic pressures others and socirty are putting on me. If the truth be told I’m putting the pressure on myself and things needed to change. It’s time I looked after… View Post

Have you ever heard of the saying ‘life is what we make o it’?  It has taken me such a long time to realise this.  I am in control of my life.  I know that I can’t control others actions but I can control how I react to them.  I have realised that the smallest changes can make so much difference to my wood and out look.  These are some of the small changes I have started to make: Self Care For me, self care can mean so many things; drinking a hot(!) cup of tea, meditating,spending time with loved… View Post

Because let’s be honest, it is pretty much winter now. Can you believe how few weeks there are left until the New Year?  In some ways this year seems to have flown by but for me it’s also seems to have dragged.  I think the reason it has dragged as the mundane day to day seems to have taken over and I can’t see adventures to look forward to.  My health has taken a dip again and a few plans have needed to be put on hold but I’m optimistic that they will be rescheduled in the near furture.  If… View Post

It’s been a tough couple of years.  I’m really hoping for a change.  It just seems to have been one thing after another the past few years.  Although I’ve certainly had things worse than they are currently, life was thrown up in the air the past few weeks health wise.  I’ve had medical appointments galore the past couple of weeks and the week before last I was inolved in a car crash.  Let’s just say someone thought in fun to turn right straight in front of us, no indicators, nothing.  Result?  A rather crunched car.  In the bigger scheme of… View Post
