Do One Things Every Day That Scares You (7 Things To Do In 2015)

flight, fear, do one thing every day that scares you

This year, one of my ‘bonus’ goals was to seek adventure/do more things that scare me, and so far, facing my fears seems to be what I have made this year about (which has been equally parts liberating and terrifying).  Continue reading →

Treat Yo Self: Me Time

treat yo self, lazy day, beauty, skincare

The last couple of weeks have been a bit hectic, so seeing I didn’t have much to do this weekend, I decided to have some much needed me-time; which brings us to now.

Right now, I’m sitting on my bed after taking a bath, listening to Gramatik (a huge thanks to my workmate Sue for the suggestion), and drinking Rose Bud tea. It feels great to be sitting back chilling out, although after having such a full on couple of weeks, I kind of don’t know what to do with myself (anyone else get that?).

I’ve also been hormonal as hell this past week, which didn’t help (I took a couple of my pills late and my body let me know about it).  Continue reading →

But what love got to do with it when I don’t love myself?

 

I recently came across a blog post I wrote three years ago; it was about how I’d realised that if I wanted to be truly happy I need to love myself (liking myself at that point would have been a good starting point to be honest).

At that point in time, I was filled with so much self doubt, and it seemed like every set back reaffirmed one of the narratives I have played for as long as I can remember:”I’m not good enough”  Continue reading →
