Quarantine Basics

“Does anyone know if we will get through together or not? Or if these times are certain or uncertain? No one letting me know”. Chrissy Teigen In my social media scrolling, that takes up an embarrassingly large amount of my time these days, I’ve discovered; That Chrissy Teigen wins the internet (@commentsbycelebs on insta doesContinue reading “Quarantine Basics”

Dear Diary

Dear Diary,  I saw Ryan today. He was standing near my locker. Jjsskkkcccc jskkcchhcccjjjjsss!!! I had just come back from PE so hope I didn’t look fug. If I did…FML! Also, am having mac and cheese for dinner (my 2nd fave after beef strog) and listening to Taylor on Spotify on repeat. So, I guessContinue reading “Dear Diary”

The courage to rest

My yoga teacher offered this gem during a Yin Yoga class (which is the s-l-o-w, introspective type one), “How can you have the courage to rest? To not push but accept fully where you are. To bring this quality of surrender into your practice and your life”.  Talk about a Mic-Drop! This is something I’veContinue reading “The courage to rest”

Nothing you want is upstream

I love the Law of Attraction and especially enjoy the funny and clear ways it’s explained by Abraham Hicks (many of their conversations with audiences you find on YouTube are enlightening comedy gold). Recently I’ve been thinking about this gem of an analogy from them; we could all be floating and flowing along the riverContinue reading “Nothing you want is upstream”

Core Desired Feelings

Core desired feelings are the way you want to feel daily. They’re not destination driven like some goals but are based on the way you want to feel most often. Not just when you’ve achieved these goals but when you’re on the way to achieving them and all the times in between. Danielle LaPorte says,Continue reading “Core Desired Feelings”

I do it in on the daily

Over the holidays-hurrah! Rare teacher perk-I followed a ‘magic’ formula for things to do each day that have a positive impact on mind, body and spirit. Behold M-M-W-G-F. A not so catchy acronym for: Move-Meditate-Write-Gratitude-Fun. I did these things on the daily and loved every minute of it and I’d do it again I tellsContinue reading “I do it in on the daily”

Winter is coming

Winter is coming, and not just to the House of Stark. Winter often gets a bad rap. Like it’s Summer’s poor cousin. Something we must suffer through and endure while praying and waiting and hoping for a glimpse of sunshine. But for me, it’s more like Summer is the most popular girl at school. She’sContinue reading “Winter is coming”

A room of one’s own

“Give her a room of her own and five hundred a year, let her speak her mind and leave out half that she now puts in, and she will write a better book one of these days” Virginia Woolf. I used to think that temporariness would bring me the sense of freedom I so desired.Continue reading “A room of one’s own”

Do less

Everyone’s so busy these days. Busy busy busy! It’s the standard reply you hear from everyone you ask, “what are you up to?” “I’m busy”. It’s like a cult. A cult of the busy; dashing between appointments, carrying a baby and a briefcase (if Hollywood movies are anything to go by), sipping coconut lattes outContinue reading “Do less”

Cat Lessons

Anyone who’s spent more than 5 minutes with me will have heard all about Bella, my beloved cat familiar, faithful feline friend and constant companion (insert witch/ crazy cat lady/ Mrs. Slocam’s pussy joke here). Bella has taught me many valuable lessons about life and love. They say that when the student is ready, theContinue reading “Cat Lessons”
