Pick Me Up

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” 
― Lao Tzu

“I love you”. Those three words that can take weeks, months or even years to say… The three words that I hear in life that causes time to stop. My heart to flutter and a huge cheesy grin to break out over my face. Those three words that if uttered by this person can make all my troubles…

Reason To Believe

“Sometimes the little things in life mean the most.” 
― Ellen Hopkins

As I stared out the bus window lost in the midst of all that was bothering me something suddenly caught my attention. There before my very eyes lay a homeless couple right outside a large retail store. A homeless couple with what appeared to be all their worldly possessions packed up neatly into plastic bags. A homeless couple…

The Time Machine Extended Version

  “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
― Andy Warhol

As I stood at the back of the store with the shopkeeper staring at the stupendous machine in front of me. It was hard to believe that this machine though executed magnificently was really going to transport me to the future.

It was only yesterday that I had glimpsed the small ad in the window to…

Feeling Super Stokke’d

Feeling Super Stokke’d

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” 
― Mother Teresa

So today I have finally decided to grow a pair and put it out there. I am in need of help. Yes your help. Right now I feel liberated even if I don’t receive the help I’m seeking. Why? because I didn’t let my pride get in the way of asking for help when necessary which sometimes can often seem so hard.

“She had managed to go almost three weeks without being late. Admittedly on two of those days she’d perambulated around the office like someone doing a good imitation of the walking dead – but she’d been timely walking dead, damn it.” ― Michelle Sagara West

The Shortest Day - Or Longest Night

The Shortest Day – Or Longest Night

“At night, when the objective world has slunk back into its cavern and left dreamers to their own, there come inspirations and capabilities impossible at any less magical and quiet hour. No one knows whether or not he is a writer unless he has tried writing at night.”

Great Expectations

“There were two ways to be happy: improve your reality, or lower your expectations” 
― Jodi Picoult

Expectations… So many of us seem to have them. Whether it is through beliefs imposed on us from childhood, the reckoning of being successful to even expectations in love.

But what are they you ask? Well according to the dictionary expectations are the belief about or (mental pictures of) the…

What Once Was

“The past is never where you think you left it.”
― Katherine Anne Porter

When I awoke I smiled as I saw who was laying besides me. I tried to hide my rather cheesy grin by pulling the covers back over my head to which he pulled them off and began to tickle me until we were on an all out war under the covers.

It’s funny how I had opted to travel back in time and it was him who I had travelled…

The Great Pretender

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Escape! http://wp.me/sP8IO-escape

“She felt trapped, but she didn’t have to. The world is wide open and ready, waiting for us to escape this bubble and join it.”
― C.M

Do you ever at times feel like you just want to escape. Escape the doldrums of life and hit the road of expectations where all our desires are met and failure nothing but a distant murmur…

I have.

A lot of the time we get to this point because it’s life’s way of…

Stuck In A Blogging Rut

“Blogging isn’t about publishing as much as you can. It’s about publishing as smart as you can.”

Creating that great post

I’ve come to the realisation that blogging is quite like having another job. Except to begin with you’re not actually getting paid and aren’t as forcibly committed… Well if you don’t have a full-time job like myself that is. This often leads me to feel bad that…

Not another boy!

Last week I found out that I was having a boy.

I had initially anticipated waiting until the birth to find out the sex of my second child to give myself something to look forward to. But having gone to a previous scan and glimpsing what seemed to be the male anatomy. I resorted to seek confirmation during my 20 week anomaly scan. An yes it was another boy!

Say it ain’t so

For the most part since…
