What No One Tells You About Anxiety

Anxiety is the fear of the unknown! It grips your chest and squeezes every little bit of breath out of your body. It clenches around your heart and makes you paranoid and scared. Anxiety. It invades every pore on a bad day making the simplest of tasks hard. A happy thought can turn to worry and paranoia. Your feelings crash against each other in their own personal battle.

The Silent Destroyer!

I went through a period of my life a few years ago where I got totally sucked in! Sucked into the life of gossip! Something I never was or had been but something I had become. ‘Don’t be a Bitch Witch’ … It’s a saying that I’ve used in recent months where I look back to times where I got sucked into a comedy coven of hatred! How did I get sucked in? … I was working in a lonely job, you make a friend and they become a saviour to your… Read More

Everyday Inspiration Day 1: I Write Because …

  In the late evening when everyone is in bed, I can switch off my mind to the everyday routine and open my mind to writing and inspirations… I can open my heart to an open book, with blank pages waiting to be filled. I can express more freely and get out onto the white crisp paper the thoughts that cloud my mind. I can unload the images of doubt and procrastination and fill the page with the inspiration that is fighting to get out in the open and wait to be… Read More
