The Seven Year Lesson

I consider myself intelligent, but sometimes I am slow to learn life’s lessons; lessons which seem so obvious in the luxurious position of hindsight. I’m not sure why I can be so slow. Is it because sometimes these lessons are difficult? Is it simply because I am human? Or is it actually because I am not that intelligent after all.

Anyway, after seven years, I think I have finally grasped why it is important to hang out with the right people (in real life and in the virtual Continue reading

What can YOU celebrate today?

Hey my lovelies

I have a guest post today at the Chrysalis Effect Recovery Programme on my latest progress. Girl’s gotta celebrate right…

Hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday…xx

Home Alone

It’s been a strange couple of weeks. I think I have operated as two people, two people who couldn’t be more different, two people who don’t seem to belong together. One of them has had a wonderful time, whilst the other, well, not so much.

Some of you will know I have dabbled with Reiki recently – this is part of my continued ‘nail complete recovery’ package.

The time when the world stands still, the time when we share our inner most thoughts – often evil ones, the time when we laugh so loud people stare, the time when we talk about serious stuff, the time when we talk about nonsense. (A time my husband considers as therapeutic – and invariably less expensive! – as any of the ‘treatments’ I indulge in.)

We catch up on each other’s lives, craving delicious detail after not seeing each other for three weeks (a time span we both consider far too long; and a time span that puts our emotional health at risk: confirmed with the sharing of two melt-downs – one each). Continue reading

The Power of Passion

Hey my lovelies.

Today I have a guest post over at one of my favourite personal development Blogs Discovering Purpose. It’s called The Power of Passion and I talk about how finding a passion is fundamental to recovery.

It would be great to see you there – if you fancy it, of course.

Oh and I am trying to get some momentum going on my new FB page. Could you humour me and click like. Thank you!

Hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday… x
