Why I feel peace whilst my life is in boxes again

Why I feel peace despite my life being in boxes again...a reflection on hearing from God in times of chaos.

Looking with eyes closed

This post does not pull any punches. It's about homelessness, the reality of self and personal agendas. It is not targeted at anyone but myself and the experiences I have recently had on this topic. I realise it may not sit well with people. Please consider your responses before you comment. I appreciate you reading my … Continue reading Looking with eyes closed

Gratitude Day 16: Some of us just need a plan.

Last Friday I was having a swim with the hubster and chatting about the weekend to come, and in particular Saturday. Everyone was either working or out or studying and I, well, I really didn't have any plans or agenda as to how I was going to spend the time. There was a time when this … Continue reading Gratitude Day 16: Some of us just need a plan.

Gratitude Day 15: Extra Energy = Cookies

So, you know how I've been on this Paleo thing since before Christmas? Oh, no? Well, I have. I started of with about half my diet being more focussed and have gradually removed types of food and introduced other things. It's been really interesting but there is one particular thing that seems to have been … Continue reading Gratitude Day 15: Extra Energy = Cookies

The leather jacket can go with so much and it's really outerwear so I didn't include it but it could easily go with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt for cooler days. Here are the outfit combos I made, and take note: this is with just one pair of trousers (thank you David Lawrence for an amazing pair of pants!):

Gratitude Day 12 – It’s the Little Things

Just a quick post today to say a BIG thank you to the people who have begun supporting me and buying my little eBook, It's Just Time to Be You over the past week or so. The book only has a dozen or so pages, and is designed to get you thinking about who you … Continue reading Gratitude Day 12 – It’s the Little Things

Gratitude Day 10

So today has been a home day and I actually believe that home days - where you intentionally choose to steer clear of shops and outings - are vital to mental and physical wellbeing.  Now, I'm not naturally a home body. I love shopping, cafes, hustle and bustle, the vibe of a colourful and inspirational … Continue reading Gratitude Day 10
