Human-B E I N G

Consciousness; the state of being aware of and responsive to one's surroundings. This is my third attempt at writing this post. I actually had a draft ready to post about six weeks ago, I never finished the edits. Re-reading what I had written, I thought, well yes it's all true, however that was me five [...]

Life is either happening to you, or for you.

Life is either happening to you, or for you.

The more I follow my dreams, what truly brings me happiness, the more I have realised that life is happening for me. In an age with an infinite possibilities, we have endless opportunities to choose and experience anything we want. This also means that when we get into a situation where we find ourselves at [...]

Get your own success.

Get your own success.

The amount of times I have had conversations where people are comparing their level of success to someone else's, and actually putting themselves down because they haven't got what someone else has, is incredibly infuriating! How can what I am achieving in my life, possibly compare to what you are 'succeeding' in, when our lives [...]

Money.

Money.

I live in London. One of the most expensive cities in the world. I left a full-time, well paid career to pursue a dream. Although I have zero regrets in making this massive change. It comes with it's challenges. The first, and most important, being money. There will be times in life when money is [...]

Why Events?

Why Events?

Attending events as a child, I'd always like to go were I shouldn't. Wonder around the corridors, peek into ball rooms, feel inferior to other people just visiting. There was something about being a part of something big and important that made me happy. I am also really nerdy about organisation, stationary, details with decor. [...]

What’s mine isn’t what’s yours.

What’s mine isn’t what’s yours.

Something I have really struggled with for a long time, and still do, is this idea that everyone has to want the same things as me. To want to achieve high. Travel. Have a career. Change the world. . . I really wish I understood why I feel so strongly about this, and why I [...]

Just start.

Just start.

This feeling right here. This feeling is the thing I chase. I am sat in a coffee shop putting together an event proposal for a client and I think about how happy it makes me feel to be this excited to get up and work for myself. To be in the position to follow my [...]

I will never do less because I’m not expected to do more.

I will never do less because I’m not expected to do more.

This idea of putting in minimum effort to make my life easier has rarely crossed my mind. Ever since I can remember, whenever I have been given a task I will be mapping it out in my head as it's being explained, working out the best way to start. I set it all out like [...]

You’ve just got to keep going girl.

You’ve just got to keep going girl.

So I have officially finished my career in childcare now (after seven years!) I currently have no job and one week to find a place and move out of my current house. On paper this was the plan I envisioned. Turns out reality is soo much harder. As I was walking back from the train [...]

Are you even listening?

Are you even listening?

The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply. I've read this quote a few times. Each time I totally agree with it. In society today, I think we all have an awful lot to say. We have opinions about pretty much everything and sometimes tend to even give them when they aren't [...]
