Hearing your voice.

I’ve just seen a memory of Poppa M. It was when my brother first visited and we all met my little baby nephew. Dad was overwhelmed and besotted from the off, we all were. He was googling nursery rhymes because he couldn’t remember the lyrics (they didn’t sing them India when he was a child)…

Trust in yourself.

Once when I was really struggling, it felt life my world was crashing down around me and I couldn't see any light at the end of the tunnel, my cousin turned to me and said, "everything will be ok, it might not feel like it now and no matter what happens, everything will be ok!"…

Keep working on yourself.

I've recently read Michael Cain's Blowing the Bloody Doors Off, it's a great book, if you're a theatre and film buff it's a great read, not only for his life story but also his clear depiction of the difference between film and theatre, cinematic acting and traditional and classic. It's just a bloody brilliant read.…

They know your worth.

It’s taken me months to pluck up the courage to write and share this one, I’ve needed to mull it over for quite sometime. Recently, something triggered a reaction in me, an emotional one that I internalised. Actually it wasn’t something, it was someone. It doesn’t matter who, they won’t even realise it’s them and…

Stop worrying about being good enough.

Everyone knows I’m a big fan of an inspirational quote. I’m also a fan of inspirational people, not just famous ones but everyday heroes, like the lady down the road, my best friend or the chap at work all facing the challenges trials and tribulations of life and remaining strong (these are all hypothetical examples…

External validation.

We all seek external validation, approval and compliments or praise once in awhile. We all need it sometimes and there’s nothing wrong in it, in small healthy doses. It’s hard though isn’t it when as a person you become reliant on it. I started writing this blog for selfish reasons, I needed an outlet for…

It’s ok to be vulnerable.

If Superman were perfect you’d think he was a prick. The thing that makes him human is Kryptonite, it gives him a weakness, a vulnerability. All superheroes have a weakness because it makes them more likeable and attractive to us as audiences and fans. Yet we all hate to share and admit to our weaknesses…

All they need is love.

So little P did great this week, her separation anxiety issues took a huge step in the right direction. I mean there’s still hints of it there but we hit a massive milestone when one day she skipped into childcare forgetting to give kisses and a cuddle goodbye. Now in my last post I asked…

Date yourself.

I saw a meme on Instagram yesterday that displayed the quote, “to be able to visit galleries alone, go out to dinner with yourself, take lone walks and go solo to the movies, is an underrated strength” and surprise surprise it got me thinking! You see I love taking myself on a date, I did…

Not a happy bunny.

Motherhood has been hard this week, super hard. In fact it has been a lot lately and I’ve been more than eternally grateful for my squad, my team of friends who’ve just held me up and been there when I’ve needed it. Whether it be some reassurance, daffodils and ice lollies at and afternoon play…
