Everything is a trade off…. even when it’s an obvious choice. I quit that shit job, so life is good. Every day is just a little lighter and I am excited to wake up. YES… EXCITED. But still there is a trade off… in exchange for freedom from a job that was killing me, I took on work that pays me in peanuts, so, I had to take on job #2. Instead of a 9-5,

Photo from the Wilde Family album “What a treacherous thing, to believe that a person is more than a person” -John Green, Paper Towns I had reserved part of my brain for believing in fairy tales… I believed that marriage was suddenly going to take this girl with a lifetime of self esteem issues and make her confident and effortlessly happy. Truth is – a ring didn’t make me a better person Truth is –

Look how far you’ve come, child

What would you tell a younger version of yourself? Any time I’ve been asked this question, I’m always stumped. What would I actually say to little me? What would I tell her? What would be my magic words of wisdom that would help her? Would she even listen? Would she believe me if I told her who I am now? The person I’ve become is so very different from the little version of me. Recently,

I had a job. It was an ok job, As far as jobs go. I made decent money. It was near my house. No one hit me, yelled at me or spat at me. What more could I ask for?! I could ask for just one more thing. A life which I didn’t dread 90% of. Photo by Rawpixel on Unsplash I could ask for anything but this place, This job, this lifestyle, Because it

At least, not yet… Although, there was a time a few years ago where I nearly did quit… I gave serious consideration to quitting professional wrestling forever. And I know now I would have regretted it. At the time however, I felt I had no other option. I had a tendency to avoid conflict and to run away from difficult situations. And at the

You’re going to be in love forever, you’re going to be blissfully happy and nothing and no one is going to rock the boat and take away the solid footing that you have built your relationship on…..

Photo from the Wilde Family Album I couldn’t have been more excited to be getting married to Ben… he and I knew that being together was the only future for either of us… but my mum’s health and the upcoming surgery was never far from our minds. My stepdad was the only dad I’d known, his death hit hard- and now it felt like mum was about to leave us too. We knew that we

There has been an obvious theme about my week this week – CHANGE. You know, they say change is the only constant. There’s no denying that this is absolutely true. Especially in my world this week. Change has been non-stop. I’ve had good news, bad news, average news, upsetting news. So much to take in, in such a small space of time. One of the perks of being in a team in the HR (Human

Photo by Alex Ivashenko on Unsplash We’ve kind of known each other for a few years, and you’ve vaguely followed my photos, and now that you see I’m married you’re a little confused- I don’t blame you, and I wish I had a more epic story for you, but it looks a little bit like this… ‘That other guy” as my previous boyfriend is affectionately known, and I had been wandering the earth together for a
