Hello 👋 reader and welcome to my blog! Today I’m going to talk about my lifelong efforts to control my emotions. I’ve always been over sensitive, and over emotional. I’ve always been full of insecurities and fears about not fitting in and I’ve always reacted rather than responded (later on I found out I hadContinue reading “Transformation Tuesday: Controlling my Emotions”
I sit here at 10:30pm, tea cup in my hand (too late for coffee) while I contemplate my parenting techniques. I have the habit of trying to convince my son to do what I want by bribing him with things he wants, then when that doesn’t work, I start threatening to remove a privilege orContinue reading “Storytime: How can I motivate my son to learn?”
It’s day 3 of the total lockdown and I’m telling you it’s hard. Not because I’m not getting much of my goals done. Not because I can’t leave the house. Not because I’m moody and keep trying to tell myself “I am calm and in control of my emotions”. But because I have to walkContinue reading “Storytime: Day 3 of total lockdown”
Hello 👋 reader and welcome to my blog! Today is the 14th of January 2021.

I’m trying so hard to to go with the flow, not planning, but believe me this week has been bizarre and part of the reason I think is because I’m trying to be spontaneous and not plan. I feel like “who amContinue reading “Happy Monday 🙃”
Hello 👋 how are you doing lately? I know a lot of countries are in lockdown now, including the UK and Australia, maybe even parts of the USA. Meanwhile, other areas are undergoing certain restrictions. I know there is too much negativity on the news, so I try to steer clear of these topics hereContinue reading “Staying happy while social distancing”
I have racked my brain today thinking what I should blog about, and I got nothing. My blogs have become orchestrated symphonies, organized series, not all over the place. You got me. I’m a phony. A liar. Pretending I’m all put together when I’m not. Or was I pretending? I’m not sure of the illusionContinue reading “Unfiltered thoughts”
If you feel depressed, it’s okay to talk about it. If you feel anxious, it’s okay to talk about it. If you feel lonely, it’s okay to talk about it. If you are struggling with any mental health problems, it’s okay to talk about it.
The new block editor is making it really difficult to share my poems, so I’ll be sharing them as an image from now on. Obviously, I’m getting hooked on The Umbrella Academy.
Disclaimer: I think we are all uncomfortable at the moment. Some of us are in panic mode (fear zone), some in the learning zone, and the few of us experiencing growth are the lucky ones. I think I generally fluctuate between comfort zone and fear zone. I’ve been called out about that several times. EveryContinue reading “Are you living in your comfort zone?”
