Losing a pet is probably the worst loss I have ever experienced. Before my own dogs passing, I had no idea how it felt. Any other animals I have had in my life have never passed away whilst still being in my family. The last dog I had was given to my auntie because she became too violent with us, so I didn’t know how it felt losing her. But my dog, Honey we had for 14 years. 14 wonderful years of her wagging tail and beaming brown eyes. 14 years of her love and companionship.Read more

Anxiety is a complex thing, and I began to understand this more when I began the journey to heal my anxiety. It effects everybody differently, and thats what makes healing it so hard.

I can’t actually believe that its taken me 26 years to love myself, but here I am.
As many of you know, over the last 6 months I have embarked on a new lifestyle journey. Learning to love and respect my body, mind and soul. I have been exercising and eating better so that I can become better. But not only have I been learning to love my body, but myself as a whole. Never before I have I felt such peace with myself. Everyday I learn something new about who I am and who I am becoming. I have spoken to a few people about this topic, and so many have said that they are at a point even still at 40-50 years old where they don’t love themselves. Society has such a large part to play in this. With their unreal beauty standards and expectations of how we should look and be as people.Read more
Being quiet is not always a good idea, showing your true emotions is. Nobody knows how you feel if you don’t speak for yourself. As Johnny Depp said, “People who cry are not weak. They are just tired of being strong.” If you cry, you’re not a kid. If you get angry, you’re not a psycho. If you are sorry for something then you’re not a loser. Expressing your true emotions is not at all wrong.Read more
One of my main goals in life is really to be happier. So often we go through life and go with the motions and forget about how important happiness is. If you aren’t happy, you’ll find so many other things in your life don’t align. I remember as a child being so happy and content with life, and I know I am lucky to have experienced that because so many didn’t. And sometimes, I wish I could go back to my child mind and find happiness in the small things again.Read more

This past year has taken such a toll on so many peoples mental health that I think a welcomed break from the stress of it all is really needed. Stress can really take a toll, not only on your mind but your body too. I think people forget how powerful the mind is, and how important it is to make sure you are looking after yourself mentally and physically, in all aspects.Read more
