I left a job quite recently because it was too stressful and I didn’t think the money matched the pressure I was being put through and it no longer served any purpose for me to stay there. I started waitressing to ‘de-stress’ myself. Clock in, clock out, how hard can it be? I’d done waitressing before and it came like second nature to me. I quickly … Continue reading Why Are We Always Stressed?
I’ve been reading a lot of self-help blogs, feel good posts and positive thinking blogs online and in books at the minute. Channeling all these good thoughts, vibrations and resonating with them isn’t easy as there is still a good chunk of mental noise and those ‘I can’ts‘ (I hate those) swarming in every so often. I’ve compiled a list of points that I’ve come to … Continue reading The Power Of Believing What You Read

Because I’m about to embark on a verrry different fitness journey from what I usually do (I AM the cardio queen) and want to share it with you all! Fitness is something … Continue reading IT’S OFFICIAL!
I’ve had some terrible thoughts lately that have made me realize that I’m not okay. In turn, I’ve realized that it’s okay to not be okay. I’ve been making a conscious effort to get my life ‘back on track’ for the last 2 months. Trying to ‘chill out,’ ‘calm down,’ read and write. But something happened in the middle of last week which turned my … Continue reading Not The Person I Was
The Truth Hurts As the old saying goes: ‘What goes around comes around.’ I’d made a mistake at work which meant that I had to have a meeting with my then-manager. Instead of supporting me, she used this as an opportunity to kick me while I was down. Along with some other things, she told me that she had heard from some of the other … Continue reading Forgive and Forget
