Happy Friday! How has your week been? Positive and productive I hope! This evening I want to talk about something that has been playing on my mind for quite some time now. I always find myself craving permission, reassurance and certainty. I find that I crave these three things in all aspects of my life … More Fighting Back.
Going and telling a complete stranger that something is wrong is no easy task. It takes courage, strength and confidence. All of which in recent months I have been struggling with. Yesterday was my first day back at my original store. I was really anxious. I got changed into my uniform and my anxiety was … More Taking Back Control.
The cynical part of me thinks “I really don’t have any talents”, do I? But the honest and positive part of me, and the part of me that wants to like myself more says “I do have some talents”. I’m very good at organisation and problem solving. I am really grateful that I have this … More Gratitude Challenge: A Talent You Have.
It’s Monday, my favourite day of the week. A day for new beginnings. Maybe a new outfit, or two. Maybe a new makeup style, or hair do. Today I wanted to share kind of a different post with you.

I’m still punishing myself. It seems to be a pattern of mine, no eating, sleeping and self harm are all the … More I Miss Therapy.
Wow, okay. *Deep breaths* A few weeks ago I made a decision that was very hard to make. Saying goodbye is never easy, it doesn’t matter if that person is your friend, your sister, your boyfriend, it doesn’t matter. It’s difficult all round. When I lived in South Korea, I began a relationship with a Korean … More By Loving You, I Lost Myself.
*** Trigger Warning *** I’m going to be talking about a very different topic today. If you are sensitive or easily triggered then I suggest that you view this post with caution. It’s hard to predict how recovery will progress. Everyone recovers in their own way and at different speeds. The road to recovery is … More The Road To Recovery.
Dear Journal, Today I want to talk to you about “building bridges”. Over the past 6 years I’ve burnt more friendship bridges than I could have ever imagined.
