I have a confession to make: I’ve never stuck with anything. As a child, I tried countless hobbies, all given up within a few months. No matter what, I couldn’t find anything I liked long enough to stick with it for a long time. Fast forward to adulthood and I’m a jack of all trades; [...]
A month ago I was living at home and working 9-5 in an office that destroyed my mental health. Now I'm a flat 400 miles from my family home and I left the office job behind. I definitely don’t do things by halves, but I don't regret quitting my miserable job. I finished school [...]
If I could send this letter back in time; I would. If I could go back knowing everything I know now; I would. Zoe, you’re 22 now, and you’ve made it mostly where you want to be, but as I know where we are now, I want to pass on some advice. Learn to say [...]
Music is an escape for me, no matter how I'm feeling, I have a song for every mood and every moment. Music has got me through a lot of tough times in my life, and some of my fondest memories are at concerts, watching the bands that have changed my life in so many ways [...]

I’ve been blogging for just over a year now and I am so grateful for the wonderful people I’ve met during this time. I was nominated by Judy Maree, a blogger who I’ve just recently ‘met’ and I love her content. I recommend you visit her blog if you haven’t! Thank you so much for [...]

This culture has the tendency to go into overdrive and can make people feel inadequate if they haven’t achieved something big in a while, and that if they’re not overachieving - they’re not doing enough.
