17 FIRSTS OF 2017!

I feel as though it’s tradition to write a new year’s post, so that’s why I’m here! 2017 was a huge rollercoaster of a year, it was one hugely stressful, emotional and yet immensely gratifying year. So many things happened this year and the outcomes of many things in this year in a way paved a lot of what’s to come in the future. So I thought why not take a look back at the year and think about all the things (no matter how big, or how small) 2017 managed to claim as the first year I did those things…

I’ve been recently asked by Eventbrite to reflect on the topic of giving back. This is something we should all take a step back and think about; when was the last time each of us did something to help others in need? There’s so much misfortune all over the globe and quite often we find ourselves turning a blind eye to the tragedy after tragedy that whirlwinds around our planet. It may create less heartache to sometimes ignore the pain and misery our fellow human beings are suffering through, but perhaps it’s time for us all to ask ourselves this question: are we really doing enough?

I think a piece about the heart is due seeing as Valentine’s Day has just passed us. Isn’t the heart a fascinating organ. I mean thinking about it really, it’s just sat there inside you faithfully pumping blood for you, your entire life. Every other organ takes a break every once in a while, even our brains when we go to sleep, but our hearts are constantly working at it. And then one day when they decide they’ve had enough, that’s it…we’re gone! Continue reading “A HEART-TO-HEART ❤️”


Life’s too short…our existence is so small. The average human lives for around 79 years. 79 years in comparison to the 14 billion years of the universe’s existence. We are just 0.00000005642 (1 out of 177 million) of everything in existence. Less than that actually, because we’re sharing this time with 7.5 billion other people who are also alive, so actually 0.0000000000000000075227 (1 out 133 quadrillion). Don’t you sometimes feel life is just one big mad rush…with a bit of a grab-what-you-can QUICK approach. Continue reading “A BLUR IN EXISTENCE”


Do you ever look at strangers and ponder on the fact that everyone is so busy living their own little lives? I do this sometimes, sat in the car, watching people as the world whizzes by outside. I might see someone carrying their shopping home. But what’s home to them? Is it a nice cosy house with a lovely family to go back to, or are they going home to a stressed and strained relationship? Or are they homeless? Continue reading “THE BIGGER PICTURE”


“Be fearless! If you make only one resolution this year, let it be to live boldly. You control this moment: rather than cautiously test the water, dive straight into life with freeing abandon. Imagine the person you want to be and live the life you want to live, then simply commit to them. Believe in yourself. Embrace your beauty. Discover a new passion. Whatever you do, wherever you go, don’t be afraid to make a splash.” – Unknown
