Welcome to the Friendzone, Food

Dear Food, We’ve been together a long time now, 31 years to be exact. During this time, we’ve had some great memories, and some terrible ones too. Through the good times, and the bad, you’ve always been there for me. However, I’ve done some thinking and have made the hardest decision of my life. We need to stop. This relationship as we know it cannot continue. It really is me, not ...

Are you serious!?

I don't know about you, but I'm in shock! Earlier this week I read something that took me completely by surprise. I had already written another blog post for this week but I've been unable to get this other thing off my mind. So, as with most weeks, come Friday, my topic to post about has completely changed from what I'd written earlier this week. What has got me so riled up? Reading ...

The truth!? You can’t handle the truth!

The truth!? You can’t handle the truth! The problem with the truth itself, but that we find it hard to tell others the truth for fear of how they may react.

In not telling the truth though, the long-term impact ...

I AM Good Enough!

I am absolutely tired of feeling like I’m not good enough. Rather than delving into my history to explore the root of why I feel that way, I would rather share my recent learning with you all and my plans for how I am choosing to confront this and move forward from now on. You see, I’ve been this way ever since I can remember. No compliment given ever felt deserved. No ...

You want to be a what?!

Last week, I wrote about finding my purpose. Just to let you know, my purpose in life is to “inspire others to be more empowered to live full and happy lives”. This purpose is the reasoning behind my decisions I make in life. You'll also see it written under 'about me' on the sidebar on the right. It's my goal to achieve this in some way every day. However, every day ...
