Insecurities, they affect all of us…

It’s easy to look at a photo on Instagram and think that someone has their whole life together with no insecurities, but who really knows what lies behind the capture of one single moment? In this photo, I openly admit that I feel beautiful, I feel confident, I feel a lot like an “Instagram model”Continue reading “Insecurities, they affect all of us…”

Insecurities are nuisances, but we’ve got the power to put them to rest!

Insecurities. Such nuisances, right?! We all have them though; we all suffer from them and unfortunately, we all try to pretend that we don’t have any. This, in my opinion, is the worst approach. Because let’s face it; one way or another, they’re gunna find ya, and they’re gunna getcha, getcha, getcha, getcha… 🎵 I’veContinue reading “Insecurities are nuisances, but we’ve got the power to put them to rest!”

Perseverance

Lady Gaga was and still is firm in her purpose. She is unyielding in what she wants from her life. She fought many battles of her own and guess what?! She persevered!

Are you wanting to make changes in 2020? Are you always scrolling and wondering why you have no time to do anything? Take a read of this and let’s begin our Social Media Detox – together! 🙂

Here’s to you, Mam…

My Mam is a wonderful woman and she has always loved and encouraged my writing, creativity and whatever else I put my mind to throughout the years. There is so much about her that is so incredibly breath-taking that it’s hard to get it all down on paper, but because of who she is, I’m definitely going to give it a try! Have you seen my Mam? She’s gorgeous! Have you witnessed how amazing and wonderful she is? She would have you laughing and crying all at once with just a few simple words. Have you ever met my Mam?
