Right now, the entire world is pretty much on lockdown. It's mad isn't it? To think this could be the first time, as far as we know, that the entire planet is in quarantine. I don't want to talk about the virus and all the fear that surrounds it. I just felt like writing a … Continue reading Lessons from Quarantine
It’s hard to change.
Actually, the changing part is quite easy. It's accepting the change that's hard. The frustrating thing is, we're constantly changing, aren't we? The world is changing, we're changing. We're ever growing, expanding, evolving. So it means we're thrown the challenges of change regularly. Recently I have become super self aware of when things are changing … Continue reading It’s hard to change.
I’ve started an article without knowing what I’m going to write
Self expression. It creeps up on you, well, it does with me at least. I loaded up my blog tonight and clicked on to write a new post with no idea what I was going to write. This means that this blog post could go anywhere at any time because I feel like I may … Continue reading I’ve started an article without knowing what I’m going to write
Notes on Karma from 2016?!
I "accidentally" came across this note in my phone. I say "accidentally" because is anything really by accident? I wrote this on 10th December 2016 and well, I think I wrote it.. but I can't be sure because it's pretty profound and I'm pretty impressed with myself if I did 🤣. I could have copied … Continue reading Notes on Karma from 2016?!
The Anxiety of Blue Ticks and “Last Seen”
I became aware of how distracting my phone was years ago. Let's face it, we are all actually aware of how much we're on our phones, we don't even need the frustrating "Screen Time" app to tell us how much of our lives we give to technology. When I first realised I was on it … Continue reading The Anxiety of Blue Ticks and “Last Seen”
“The world looks very different from down here.”
This was said to me by someone we met today, and I can't get the words out of my head. A week ago... Lauren told me of a homeless person on the train that was politely asking for change. She too out her headphones and was apologetic because she didn't have any change. The lady … Continue reading “The world looks very different from down here.”
Can we actually “switch off”?
When do we get a chance to "switch off" from the outside world? I do my best thinking when I'm driving, and it's really impractical as I can't write notes down whilst I'm driving (unless I have a Tesla that can drive itself - just need to find that spare 100k I left lying around). … Continue reading Can we actually “switch off”?
Telling 9th July 2018
Take a break! That's all. No just kidding, there's more to tell. Although it really is that simple. I heard a great word today that affected me: Permission. When we give ourselves permission to do something, it means we allow it. There's no resistance, we've accepted that it's allowed. Over the weekend just gone I … Continue reading Telling 9th July 2018
Going Waste Free – is it really that difficult?
Me and my girlfriend made one the best decisions of our lives back in January (2017). We adopted a plant-based diet. We've never felt better and it really opened our eyes to the suffering of other beings. It's safe to say my compassion and love of animals has grown much stronger since we made the … Continue reading Going Waste Free – is it really that difficult?
The 1 Major Downside To Working From Home
I went self employed in January 2009, it was a scary time and I honestly didn't know if it would work out. I had amassed a fair bit of savings to keep me going for a few months if I didn't make any money. I would say I was lucky because I landed on my … Continue reading The 1 Major Downside To Working From Home
