You need to calm down

Recalibrate the Universe

I loved watching the series, “Modern Love” which is inspired by real-life stories of love in many different forms. Love at first sight, friendship, navigating dating, the one-that-got-away, marriage counselling, grieving, families and more.

Vetty vs. dating

It’s been over a year since I summoned up the courage to ‘put myself out there’ by online dating. Please, no medal for bravery required, but I do appreciate the sentiment. It did involve the challenges of leaving the house, trying to look nice and talking to strangers. Here’s what I learned from 13 firstContinue reading “Vetty vs. dating”

Put yourself out there

It can be scary being visible. Especially when your default setting is hide behind the pot plant. I love to write-to write-to write but the sharing-is-caring part was trickier. One night in late September 2016 (I think it was a Thursday), I woke up and sat bolt upright. I had an idea, “A personal blogContinue reading “Put yourself out there”

What I’m….

I was inspired by the shiny bit of the Sunday paper where the columnists list the things they’re currently interested in. Here are some of mine.

Part 1 of 2 No man is an island (apparently) and relationships with others are inevitable. But negotiating these can sometimes be a minefield. Does he like me? Is she mad at me? Why are they always too busy? I said I was FINE! How can we navigate the sometimes stormy seas in our relationContinue reading “I ship us”

Sliding Doors

Do you ever wonder what might have been had you made a different choice in the moment? Like, if you hadn’t missed that train would you have stayed in a crappy relationship selling sandwiches in an office rather than hooking up with the spritely Scottish guy from ‘Four Weddings and A Funeral’ and getting aContinue reading “Sliding Doors”

An Army of Me

“And if you complain once more. You’ll meet an army of me”. Björk: Army of Me  I saw a vision of an army of me stretching back as far as the eye can see. It was during a time-line visualisation (led by the lovely Carry at Atriba) where I was picturing myself as a child andContinue reading “An Army of Me”

Best of the Blog 1: Dating

Dating served as inspo for some of my most-read bloggies this year. Here’s a taster! Dating 101 I’ve recently forayed into the world of online dating for the same reason everyone does; my kinesiologist said one of my angel guides was urging me to do it and he had my back. I had previously thought itContinue reading “Best of the Blog 1: Dating”
