Just in time

Even the most put together people fall apart sometimes, the most successful ones too. I do not pretend to be anything that I am not, and I most certainly am not perfect. I am a firm believer in going through the process and being true to your feelings even if that means completely falling apart.Continue reading “Just in time”

See the beauty in the storm

I’ve come to realise that we sacrifice so much of what we truly want to make life convenient for other people. Those people are not doing the same for you always. It’s important to be true to how you feel about what you need and make it known, because if you find yourself in aContinue reading “See the beauty in the storm”

When it rains it pours… or does it?

We are all a work in progress , sometimes we need to be made aware of the things we do to sabotage our lives even unknowingly. This is my story.

I am Emily

Emily is a random name chosen by me to tell the true story of how women in our society are abused. Through this month I will continue to tell real life stories of women that have had to endure the pain and suffering of being abused by men. These are not all stories about myContinue reading “I am Emily”

Finding Passion and excitement

I had a conversation this week regarding my journey of finding passion or being excited about life. I remembered a time when I found excitement uncomfortable, I did not express passion for anything or excitement. I lost my freedom to be excited when I got let down almost every single time something excited me. ThisContinue reading “Finding Passion and excitement”

More

I’ve let go of alot of things that were bad for me and it hasn’t been an easy process. In fact, they creep up every now and again to test my strength. I used to dwell on the fact that so many bad things have happened to me and my line used to be “youContinue reading “More”

Blocked

I promised myself that if I’m going to do this it’s always going to be an authentic journey both for me and for those who choose to read my posts. Sometimes I stare at a blank screen and have no idea what I want to share with you and sometimes my energy and words flowContinue reading “Blocked”

Choose life

It’s so easy to fall into the trap that people have set up for us. Where we find ourselves blindly following and obsessing over things that we have been convinced actually matter. Like money and having lots of it. Yes, I know, money makes life easier and I’m not saying that money is bad, howContinue reading “Choose life”

Free flow

My mother tells a story of me helping my drunken neighbor, who had passed out on the pavement next to our house. I was young about 13 years old and he needed help, so I helped him. Do I remember this incident? Absolutely not, do I believe her? Absolutely, because I know that my heart today could never leave a neighbor on the ground when I could help, so my innocent (ish) 13 year old self would definitely not be able to let that go. Why am I telling you this story? Because today I decided to just let whatever comes out of me come out freely and that I will share it with you without being too concerned with what the neighbors will think or the church will think or just anyone really. My life is my life and all this shame that people feel they need to force on me and on you is just not cool.
