If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you

From a young age, we create habits. We do things that we like and are comfortable doing. We get used to this and find it hard to stretch out of our comfort zone. Before we know it, we’re stuck in the vicious circle of monotony, as we stick to what we know and nothing more.Continue reading “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”

University post #3

Three weeks of life at University and I’ll tell you, there’s been many ups and downs! Time has flown by, and already I am deep into work. It seems like the pile of assignments keeps on growing and there is no end! I am writing this post on a Wednesday morning with a freshly madeContinue reading “University post #3”

Why do we waste time thinking about our dreams?☁️🌟

So many of us get stuck in this stage of planning and thinking about our dreams rather than getting out there and smashing them. Why do we, humankind, come up with endless excuses for not following our dreams and simply thinking and not doing? One of the main reasons: we are afraid of change.

What is the one word that motivates you in life?

As we start to move out of lockdown, I’ve been wanting to write a more positive blog post. So, this post is centred around one thing: what is the one word that drives you forward in life?

Snow and Hope

I woke up this morning to heaps of fresh snow. Opening my eyes, out of the window, the trees were bare, sheathed with thick snow and the woods opposite my house offered excitement and a flickering feeling of hope. I made myself a coffee, lit a candle, and watched a feel-good film whilst looking outContinue reading “Snow and Hope”

What is happiness to you?

One last thing

I’m sure we can all agree that 2020 has not been the best and the ending to this year has not been welcoming either, with the new tiers in the UK and the realisation that all this won’t be going away when the clocks chime 00:00 tonight. Sorry for the downer. However, as I saidContinue reading “One last thing”

Looking back on 2020❤️

This year has been so different for us all, and we have all found ways of coping with the new adaptations we’ve had to make to our lives and lifestyles. Some of us have struggled more than others, but to some degree we have all found it hard. However, I want to take a momentContinue reading “Looking back on 2020❤️”

Mindset

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start thinking about what could go right – unknown Everything in life seems easier as soon as you start thinking in a certain mindset, but there are so many different takes on life that you can have. It starts with you deciding what you want, whereContinue reading “Mindset”

What’s it gonna be like now?

Recently I have realised that, since the UK is slowly leaving the lockdown situation (emphasis on the slowly), it’s time to start getting back to normal – but what is normal? I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that I definitely have lost myself a little bit over quarantine: lack of skin careContinue reading “What’s it gonna be like now?”
