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. ChangeContinue reading “Why do we waste time thinking about our dreams?☁️🌟”

Autumn has arrived🍂🍁

It’s the first of September, the first of the “-ber months” or “brr months” as my mum likes to say. Officially, Autumn begins 21st September, but to me September means Autumn. September is the epitome of new beginnings and fresh starts. Back to school, end of summer. It’s all endings and beginnings for this month.Continue reading “Autumn has arrived🍂🍁”

No more lockdown (hopefully)!

What are your plans for the next few months? As we move out of lockdown (how many times have I said this on my blog over the last two years??) and as everything starts to open up again (and hopefully for good), what do you plan to do?

Should learning a foreign language be compulsory?

Nowadays, English schools offer a meagre range and variety of languages to students to learn at GCSE-level or even just a lunch-time club. Less and less children are picking up languages; the three main ones are usually French, Spanish and German. That said, a lot of schools only offer French. In England, between the agesContinue reading “Should learning a foreign language be compulsory?”

Each andContinue reading “Society’s Expectations”

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? Which word, if there is one that exists, pushes you and motivates you to the absolute extreme? IsContinue reading “What is the one word that motivates you 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?

If I asked you the question ‘what makes you happy?’ a lot of the responses would involve materialistic things, such as ‘food’, ‘money’ or even ‘a glass or two of wine’. Those things make me happy too. However, don’t these things just offer momentary happiness? We get the item we so desperately think we needContinue reading “What is happiness to you?”

Here we go again

Here we go again… England National Lockdown Round 3! Oh, the excitement. I’m sure all of you are feeling a whole mix of different emotions towards the announcement made last night at 8pm by our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson: outraged, annoyed, deflated, or truly just pissed off. Me too. But what can we do toContinue reading “Here we go again”
