    The Life Changing Magic of putting my phone down

    Maybe a bit of an exaggeration with that title but I’ve got your attention now right? Let me start by saying that I am a social media addict. I spend hours online aimlessly scrolling. Taking in loads of information – sometimes helpful and inspiring and sometimes useless. Either way, it is hours of time spent on something that I enjoy, sure. But what about the other things I enjoy? And what about real life? One Sunday afternoon, it was a day like any other. Sunny outside, the kind of winter sun that gives you the chills because it just feels so good when it hits your skin.

    29 Things I’ve learnt in 29 Years

    So the big three oh is approaching and I’m not even mad. I find myself coming towards myself with age so it can only get better as the number gets bigger right? My twenties were a time of self-doubt, confusion, low self-esteem, experimentation, healing, growth and so much more. And if I could go back the only thing I would change is the time I wasted trying to be someone who I was never meant to be.

    I know, I know, it’s been a little quiet around here and I am not going to bore you with the usual reasons. It’s a new year and honestly I am not going to promise to be better because life happens and sometimes I just don’t feel like writing but I am going to be treating the blog more like an online journal rather than a place of perfection because that holds me back too much. 2018 was an incredible year of growth for me, I would even go as far as to say it was one of my favourite years for this reason alone.

    How we can Help our Children with Confidence

    I am no expert and I’m not a parent but what I do know is that the stats are scary – more than half of our younger generation (girls and boys) suffer with low self-esteem and a negative body image. And what was clear from the Dove Self Esteem project event I attended is that they need our help. We, as the ones who have been through changing bodies, bullies and low self-esteem need to step up and do whatever we can to build them up.
