There is Always Hope. Always.

It's been an emotional 4 months since my last blog post. I have cried many tears. I have felt sad, angry, resentful, overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, fearful, a mixture of emotions. At times, when I was feeling at my absolute worst, I even struggled to see whether life was worth living any more. … [Read more...]

The Greatest Love of All… Comes From Within

Four years ago, someone very close to me lost a loved one. It wasn't due to illness, it wasn't due to death. His seemingly perfect relationship with his partner had come to an abrupt end.

5 Years Ago Today

Today, I had the opportunity to reminisce on the past 5 years of my life. Tyler Ward, a talented musician on YouTube, asked his Facebook fans: "Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?" And I knew exactly what my answer would be. Five … [Read more...]

New Beginnings

If I had told my former self 5 years ago that I would soon be married with 2 kids - I wouldn't have believed it. In such a short space of time, my life has changed. I was always one of those people that wondered to themselves whether they would ever find The One, but as corny as this sounds, my … [Read more...]
