squeezing the fun out of life

Think of a time you’ve squeezed a lemon until it’s dry. The juice dripping into the cup, or the bowl. You may have been making a cake, or perhaps a cocktail. Now think about doing that, but with your life. Yeah? No. We want to stay full, and whole and keep that fun inside the… Continue reading squeezing the fun out of life

rewind one second

This year is flying by. Like fly-ING. I’ve not had a moment to catch up, despite it being pretty stress-free. All is good in terms of work and family life, and I’ve got myself totally back on track mental health wise. Could not be happier. Now it’s just the little issue of getting my physical… Continue reading rewind one second

life :: new found strength

This time I personally took time out of blogging to allow things in my life to settle, and for me to reach a place where I felt strong enough to write again. It has been a summer of weird feelings. Not even a summer, but an autumn too. It's been like a slow rollercoaster that… Continue reading life :: new found strength

life :: all i’m dreamin’ of

It's a rainy Sunday in Lancaster but it by no means a dull one. (I even made it to the gym this morning. I say made it, I left the house at 8am feeling more energised than ever.) Last night's events hit me like a ton of bricks. Without going into too much detail, British… Continue reading life :: all i’m dreamin’ of

university :: one down, five to go

Happy Monday lovelies! Wowee, the last twenty four hours have been completely the opposite of the contents of my last post. And for that, I am grateful. This morning I had my first written exam of the season. It was not by any means 'good' and there was inevitably so much more I could have… Continue reading university :: one down, five to go

life :: dwindling

As I sit outside, the birds tweeting their last tweets, and the sunset filling the sky with a pink hue, I can't help but worry. It is the last thing that I should be doing, yet the only thing I seem to be doing. And I'm no longer quite sure why that is. The dwindling… Continue reading life :: dwindling

life :: surreal

I am going through something at the moment. Truth be told, I always am, as is everyone else in the world, and those of you reading. Whether it's normality, or the depths of despair, or exam stress, or money troubles (the list is endless), part of accepting life's phases is part of healing. I am… Continue reading life :: surreal

life :: forward

There have been critical moments when I wanted to move forward in my life—but I held one foot on the brake. I felt such grief at the prospect of leaving behind relationships and beliefs that were once essential to me, yet these attachments kept me weighted and weary. I'm now learning the joy of letting things… Continue reading life :: forward

Wishing you a very bright and happy Monday morning. World seemed like the best way to address the readers of this post, and… Continue reading faith :: reimagined

love :: foundation

I find myself on Valentine's Day alone on the sofa, after having watched part of PS. I Love You with my beautiful friends. Not alone but alone, yet so content with where I am right now. My coffee and cardamom candle is burning, and the lights are on low, and I'm gently watching the ending… Continue reading love :: foundation
