Weather, Work and What I’ve Become

_20180505_123229

I lost my way. At the beginning of February, I spiraled into an emotional mess and my life started to grow darker and darker. It felt as though I was losing my grip on my reality and I found myself in an environment where my dwindling self-worth, self-esteem and confidence festered. I’m taking complete ownership and responsibility for this phase in my life. I made choices that I felt I deserved at that time and I cannot blame anyone apart from myself.

Starting My Blog

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.

We are all born mad. Some remain so.

Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.

Where I am, I don’t know, I’ll never know, in the silence you don’t know, you must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.

Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that. Yes, yes, it’s the most comical thing in the world.

You’re on earth. There’s no cure for that.

Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.

Nothing happens. Nobody comes, nobody goes. It’s awful.

The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new.

They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it’s night once more. 

Samuel Beckett

My blog, my stage, my small part of this virtual world is the scariest leap I have ever taken. For the longest time I simply dreamed of who I wanted to be, could be, should be yet allowed the opinions of others to take first place. I’ve learned, and continue to learn that your passion is discovered. And I discovered my passion for writing a very long time ago. However, I dabbled in writing, I had periods where I plunged my very being into writing (even submitted manuscripts) and then recoiled like a wounded animal when rejected. I tried to suppress my passion. Continue reading “Starting My Blog”

The Clarins Touch

_20180128_092211

It is safe to say that I am a beauty products fiend. I read fellow blogs and watch trustee YouTubers and I am not embarrassed to say, I often take a break from reading or pause the video mid-way in order to make a purchase (or at the very least, put items in my basket so that I do not forget them). My skin care journey is very much ongoing and whilst I have just laid bare my influential side, I do not buy every item thrust in my path. I have a smidgen of discipline and my skin is definitely an area that it is exercised. Continue reading “The Clarins Touch”

A Smelly Obsession Take 2!

Although my blog is relatively new, for those of you who have joined me on my journey thus far you will know that I am candle obsessed. In my blog post A Smelly Obsession, a precursor to this post, I write about my love of candles and my hunt to find a particular type after watching one of my favourite YouTubers. A few weekends ago my lovely Nanny surprised me with a candle gift set from Aldi. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and thanked her profusely as I started drafting this blog post in my mind.

Contentment

Contentment: noun; the state of being contented; satisfaction; ease of mind.  

This week I have sat and listened to numerous people complain about their job, life and overall being. However, these same said people were quick with their retorts when others expressed the same dissatisfaction by saying “well at least it’s a job”.
