Self Belief

Now that  I am an official graduate and real life is all to REAL, the first thing on your mind is shit I need a job. Going from having a student loan and a part time job while a student to now having nothing is sickening. The thought of having to rely on other people…

Graduation.

The day finally arrived, the climax of three crazily challenging (of both the body and mind) years. I had the same basic nerves as everyone else, of getting on stage in front of hundreds of people, and trying my best not to trip and fall like the clumsy gal I am (SPOILER: I didn’t fall,…

Spirituality

I know not everyone is a strong believer in spirituality, the afterlife and a force much bigger than ourselves at play – but I am not ashamed to say that I do. I don’t know what is out there, and I don’t have set religion, or set of believes but I believe in something. By…

True Intimacy

“If what we seek in life is happiness… then it clearly makes sense to conduct our liveson a model of intimacy that includes as many forms of connection with others as possible” While starting the second part of The Art of Happiness the book discuses the true meaning of intimacy, and the misconception that it only occurs…

Body & Mind.

When  life becomes too complicated and we feel overwhelmed, it’s often useful just to stand back and remind ourselves of our overall purpose, our overall goal. One of the biggest symptoms / side effects of depression is undoubtedly lack of energy,  and lack of motivation. Thus physical activity and exercise is as far from your…

Positive Changes

As mentioned in my previous post I am currently reading The Art of Happiness and within Chapter three the discussion of mind manipulation is the topic and its sparked many of emotions. I was having trouble with the notion of irradiating negative emotions, as he states that “negative emotions and behaviours are harmful… these negative…

Optimism.

So yesterday while enjoying a long car journey in the countryside, anyone else love the journey to somewhere more than getting to the destination? Being able to look out into the world with no cares or worries, imaging all types of fantasies that you never want to end? Anyway,  I had my music on, and…

Mindsets.

Something that I have been telling myself for a good few months now is that once I have handed in all my Uni work, and I am no longer a student I can sort myself out. Isn’t t it strange how much powerful your mindset is on how you treat yourself as a person? Like,…

Resisting Temptation.

So today, on a Monday of all days, my strength was tested. It was my first time back to the City since my breakdown not that long ago and resisting the temptation to stay was overwhelmingly difficult. It is so weird how a place and environment can have such a massive impact on your behavior…

Keeping Busy.

One of the most common things that I tend to suffer with is negative thoughts, that manifest themselves into fits of frustration, rage and pain. Now obviously the best way to stay clear of those thoughts, is too keep yourself busy enough so that you don’t have time to get lost in your head. Having…

Having Strength.

So today is the beloved St Patrick’s Day, which for some reason (alcohol driven reason) the British love to celebrate more than St Georges Day. Everyone has a jolly old time, drinks too much Guinness and gets absolutely smashed. So today, a couple of my best friends asked me if I wanted to go to…
