The Takeover – Daisy Doyle

I’ve been asked to share this. It is a fantastic piece of literature written by one of my good friends, Daisy. My head spinning; my thoughts intrusive, it resembles a tumble-dryer. An anxious layer of doubt in the pit of my stomach, heaviness seems to take over numerous points of my day. Flickering thoughts previouslyContinue reading “The Takeover – Daisy Doyle”

Pride

Wow, two posts in two days? This is unheard of for me! What I really want to know today is what people think of when I say the word ‘pride’. The rainbow flags? Parades? The LGBTQ+ community? Maybe it is one of these, or maybe it’s something far smaller than this. Maybe it’s simply beingContinue reading “Pride”

Don’t let mental health be your brick wall.

Have you ever felt like mental health is causing you some sort of block in life? Almost as if there is some sort of physical wall in your place which stops you from making any progress in life? It’s like there’s a barrier which you have to break down before you can do much moreContinue reading “Don’t let mental health be your brick wall.”

Life

Life is important. We will all live a very different life which varies in length, quality and excitement. We have no idea how long we will live for. This is a factor that I believe we cannot control indefinitely. However, we can ensure our quality of life. We can do small things like smiling onContinue reading “Life”

Green Day

Some of you might be thinking about the band (I was too) and I’m terribly sorry to disappoint if you were expecting this to be a post about the latter. However, this is about something much more exciting. Last week (13th – 20th May 2019) was mental health awareness week and loads of people wereContinue reading “Green Day”

Earth

Okay, I’m writing about something a little different today because this is something that has been in the media quite a lot recently. I’m just going to say that I’m ashamed to be a part of a race which is doing what it’s doing to the planet. I can tell that there are a fewContinue reading “Earth”

What running means to me

I can’t remeber if I have done a post on this before but some of you might know that I really enjoy running. Unfortunately, I suffered an accident at the end of October which meant I needed to take 6 months off of running to take the strain off my ankle. It was hard forContinue reading “What running means to me”

Being Lead on

Most of you will be reading the blog title and thinking that this is another post about my personal life and it’ll be a sob story about something that happened to me. To a degree, you are correct. However, there is far more to it than that. I believe that there are many more waysContinue reading “Being Lead on”
