Soulful Sunday – Blanket Statements

mental health blanket statements

The amount of awareness around mental health in the last few years is a good thing. It's been really heartening to see people talking about mental health so much more than when I was first diagnosed. I had no idea that such a thing existed, and no way to access others suffering with the same … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Blanket Statements

Books I Read in January 2019

January reads

Something a little new for me today. Instead of doing a full book review (my original intention) I thought I'd do a round-up of my January reads. Purple Hibiscus by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie This is the first book I finished in January, and it was a good start to my reading year. I'd recently read … Continue reading Books I Read in January 2019

Soulful Sunday – Leaps of Faith

leaps of faith

Sometimes opportunities are large when they come knocking. Sometimes you can't miss them. Other times, they're small, easy to miss, easy to let slip through your fingers. I came across one of these small ones this week. A little thing that may lead to nothing and yet may open up all sorts of doors. It's … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Leaps of Faith

Reflections of an Unknown Writer – February 2019

Where to start? It's been a while since I last wrote one of these, because I've decided to only post them once a month. This is to enable me to alternate them with other content. So this is, I suppose, a monthly update now. I have written. And edited. And set myself some goals for … Continue reading Reflections of an Unknown Writer – February 2019

Soulful Sunday – Balance

Balance is a word I've had in my mind for a while: the idea of finding balance in my life between work and rest, between time alone and time around others, between spending and saving money, between all of the opposites of life. It seems like a perfect ideal - to have everything in balance, … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Balance

Despite best intentions I haven't entered #blogbattle in quite a few months, but this month I made it! Here is my entry. 🙂 Adversity “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of them all.” It was a quote that stuck with her since her childhood, words she carried so close … Continue reading #blogbattle – Flower

January 2019 Quarterly Goals

So it might be a little late... I mean, two weeks of January are already gone, but I am feeling in need of some solid goal setting. New Year's goals are good, and I feel like I've set some good ones, but at the same time, they're big, and need breaking down. A little. Or … Continue reading January 2019 Quarterly Goals

New year reflections

Once more, it's the New Year, it's the 1st of January, and as always it feels like a new slate. A fresh chance to start new with new and better intentions. I like the new year much better than Christmas, I like the chance it gives me to make a better life (and I know … Continue reading Reflections of an Unknown Writer – New Year Goals!

Soulful Sunday – Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

new year

It's been a busy year, and it's ending on a busy note. For the last week I've been buried in books reading for one of my English literature assignments, which, honestly, I wish I'd started reading for a few weeks ago. Another lesson learned. The entire year has been a steep learning curve, and that's … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Christmas 2018 and New Year 2019

Soulful Sunday – First University Semester Lessons

university book

This past week I've finished my first semester at university. These are the lessons, summed up, I've learned from it: 1. Always be prepared. You do not want to be the person in the workshop/seminar who doesn't know what to say. Or says something completely wrong because you haven't done the reading, or enough reading. … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – First University Semester Lessons
