Do something today for your future self

I’m sitting in my garden at the moment, enjoying the tiny bit of sunshine this country’s been given and reflecting on my day or more specifically these past few days. I made a lot of big changes this week and part of me was devastated and felt like a failure, the other part finally felt…

Dear me

Fear is one of the strongest feelings and it often makes us back out of a million things in order to avoid getting hurt or suffering any pain. Sometimes fear is good in the sense that it protects us from danger, other times it becomes too protective and we’ve got to find a balance with…

I am stronger than I was yesterday

With every hurdle and every step on the latter we get closer to the person we want to become. We get stronger with each day and we get to build our armor ready for battle. We grow from pain and despair, and that pain contributes to our strength. Imagine yesterday, when perhaps like me you…

Trust the process

A process of change can get hard and claustrophobic when you’re not sure of where things are going and how they’re going to develop in your favour or if they’re ever going to do so. You’re supposed to trust the wait and yet you feel like you’re wasting time that you should be using to…

Stand up for what you believe in

At times, we’re faced with a choice. Fight or flight. Stand or remain put. Every nerve inside your body might say move! It might say fight and there will be a small part of you that will try to convince you to do otherwise. It’s often fear that tries to convince us to not stand up for ourselves, not logic.

Fear brings logic and numbers into the equation, which usually makes people doubt. So, don’t let it overshadow all the hard work you’ve put into building something. Fear will always be there but, your dream might not.

In this broken world

In this broken world I’ve always found my peace, despite the disheartening truth that reality is not always the way we want it to be. I look out the window and see that there is still a world full of possibilities and chances waiting to be taken, paths eager to be walked and dreams ready…

I didn’t even get to hold her… (MB #23)

I expected joy and a happy ending, once we found Mia in what appeared to be an abandoned warehouse. I anticipated a feeling of relief washing over me as Thompson and his agents brought her out, or at least a sense of accomplishment that we had won. Yet, I didn’t feel any of that, not…

Our last hope (MB #22)

The clock ticked by in slow motions ready to hit 6 o’clock and I stretched my arms over my head to ease the numbness of my body. The intensive care unit was empty with the exception of two of John’s deputies and a nurse. I shifted against the uncomfortable chair that had hosted me for…

He begged in the end… (MB #16)

For the next few days, I engaged in a routine some would deem boring and almost unbearable. I woke up everyday ready for a new day, took care of feeding Loki and played with him as often as I could in the patio. Hunter had brought Thor back from the farm as well, so I…
