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

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

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

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 – Apprehensive

dark path apprehensive

Tonight I'm feeling apprehensive. I have to do something tomorrow I don't want to do - something I don't believe in - something that means I'm walking on the wrong path. But things have gone too far to back out now. I can't let the other person down. I feel it's going to end badly, … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Apprehensive

sadness and hope

A place for reflection, thoughts, and opinions.  Recently, my life has been more of a struggle than usual. I am once more in a place where I feel so much sadness, and like everything is a fight. Nothing is happening easily. Every day is a battle to get to the next step, the next rung … Continue reading Soulful Sunday – Week 40 – 2018

Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

hectic dreams

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Honestly, writing has taken a backseat again the last two weeks. Other things have taken priority. Which is frustrating, but also life. I think my problem is that I haven't really been prioritising my writing/editing. I've been unsure exactly what to prioritise this summer. I have so many projects … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

Words & Thoughts – Week 31

angry waves

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words I am currently editing Into the Unknown, and I've decided to not use wordcount to measure my progress - I'm working in a bit of a confused manner at the moment, so I'm not going to try to explain here, but I'm finding that measuring my work in time … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 31

Words & Thoughts – Week 30

lessons learned

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words I've written. I've been writing Into the Unknown, and I've finished the section of editing I was working on.  It's all too complicated to try and explain, to be honest, but I have learned a lot this week about editing, and started to find my way of doing it. I'm … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 30
