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…

Think a lot of you.

Forgive me if this post comes across as a bit self absorbed (don’t all my posts, they’re all about me and my musings) or egotistical, it’s not meant that way. This last week or so I had that lovely warm fuzzy feeling, you know when life and people just make you feel good. One of…

My own memories.

So yesterday it was a very good friend’s mother’s birthday. Her mum isn’t with us anymore either and for long enough I never fully understood it. I always tried to be there for her but never got it. Then years on, she’s turning up on my doorstep, flowers and a huge Tupperware of chilli in…

I’m bored.

Thank goodness we’ve (touches everything wood in the vicinity) not had to isolate at all during this pandemic (touches everything wood once again, just to make sure) because this week little P has been graced with chicken pox. Now I know I’m glad to be getting it out of the way whilst she’s young, but…
