Authentic Living

On Monday, without realising, I posted my 100th post! WOW! That is major to me. When I started blogging I didn’t really think about the future or how much I would love doing this.  So it’s fair to say that I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for five months already and in that time I’ve posted 100 times. That feels insane. Just the other day I was registering the name and wondering what the hell I’m going to be blogging about. I stumbled along the way and needed help getting to

I’ve never been big on getting married. I come from a long line of unhappy marriages, infidelity and divorce. I never wanted to get married until I met my husband. I hadn’t thought about the wedding or the dress or anything really about my own wedding. When I got engaged I literally had to start from scratch trying to figure out what I even wanted. I remember my mother saying something about having no idea what I wanted for my wedding cause it just wasn’t something I’d talked about too

The slogan of my blog is “Be Unapologetically You” and I try to live my life in that way every single day. Sure, some people may not like me because of it but I like me. I know what I like, what I love and what I don’t like and I’m not afraid to speak up for the causes I believe in and live life my way. See these posts if you don’t believe me: The truth about honesty  No one can live for you  Seeking approval  Redefining racism Some

I love blogging but it is damn hard work if you take it seriously and people under-estimate just exactly what that means. So to help clear things up a little, I thought I’d share with you what my typical day is like. It’s not all spent sitting around in my pjs watching series I promise you.  I wake up at around 6:30am. Coffee is handed to me. Yes, my husband is the freaking best isn’t he? I would not cope with life or the world if this is not how

I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while now but for some reason, I keep putting it off. I think it’s the idea of putting labels on myself that sends me running. You see, for most of my life, I called myself shy. I was shy when I needed to approach someone, shy when it came to making friends, shy when it came to pretty much everything. As I got older, more and more people would react with surprise to me calling myself shy. So slowly, after many

I have always loved writing. When I was a teenager the act of writing gave me solace from the angst that was my world. Late at night when everyone was asleep, I would open up one of my notebooks and pour my heart out. If I had nothing to write about I would listen to the radio and find my inspiration in the songs that came on. A word, a verse, an idea, all led to sentences streaming across the page. I would stay awake till long after 3am, surrounded

This is a story about the time my life was flipped completely upside down by a movie but starting at the end seems silly, so let me start where good writers start, at the beginning. When I was an undergrad student, I was 19 and alone in a new country for the first time. I had an awesome life. I stayed out late partying, had tonnes of friends, put in the bare minimum for my education and passed all my classes anyway. I loved my life. My favourite club was

Too many people are willing to settle. They settle for jobs they hate, friends they despise and marry people they only half tolerate. I’ve been that person. I’ve worked those jobs, had those friends and dated those people but at some point I just decided enough is enough. I think sometimes we let people love us in the way we think we deserve to be loved. Maybe not intentionally but we honestly prevent ourselves from being happy. Maybe it’s time to accept who we are as people and embrace our
