Recover Yourself

This is a poem centered around my relationship with depression. How I see it, how I try to deal with it when it comes calling. I am grateful that I have learned tools to combat these episodes with ‘the black dog’, and that it is not always following me around. But it has helped to…

A Black Hole Of Funk (and more positive phrases for 2020)

So here it is, 2020. As anyone who read New Year’s Grieve will attest, NYE is not my favourite time. I don’t hate it, I just don’t care. Same as last year… That being said, you cannot escape the fact that it is a time of reflection. And whilst I do spend quite a lot…

Relationship Goals (Bursting the Bubble)

It’s a funny thing, getting into a new relationship. It begins with a certain amount of intensity—the chats, the sex the closeness—but it isn’t sustainable. Intimacy is of course a necessary part of a relationship, yes. But there has to be some give. The elastic band of infinity that keeps those people stretching away and…

A Poem by Winnie

The wonderful Winnie has graced us with her words, and they are beautiful! Grab a drink (something warming to warming to wrap your hands around perhaps) and dive into her words. Thank you darling!   xXx

Generosity

After everything that has been going on recently, I felt compelled to post a poem I have written. One that reminds me of something very important. Generosity of mind and spirit, and importantly with yourself, is a key part of living a wholehearted life. I think we all need to remember this sometimes. I hope…

Influence

Last night I attended a lovely event. So lovely that I felt compelled to write about. Well, alright, I worked an event. I was not actually a patron. But still! I was there, I saw, I heard. It inspired me. Very apt since the event was called influence. Organised by YouTuber & Vlogger Azalea Hart,…

Growth In Solitude: Winnie’s Tale

It’s a bloody journey, so maybe it’ll never be finished, due to it being a constant.” * Wise Words – Winnie   When I was younger I always knew I was a deep thinker, an emotional child who took in more than those around me. Perhaps due to my childhood experiences and circumstance, perhaps due to…

I Have Never (Truths & A Call For Chorus)

In recent posts I have tended toward the scientific. Truly, one cannot sit at a laptop screaming into a void about their feelings and expect it to be interesting for very long. But by god do I have feelings. And so, my focus this (soon to be) past year has been to discuss how to…

Intuition: A Tale Of Two Cities

This has been playing on my mind for some time… Lets talk about our old friend Intuition! Everyone in the world has been privy to this force—that sense of ‘just knowing’ when something is wrong or right. Instinctively choosing one path out of many available options. You may also know it as the ‘gut feeling’….

Mental Freedom Through Selfless Service

I have written a lot about introspection recently. This is going to be a bit of a departure. Albeit whilst still moving in the same general direction. In all things, throughout our lives, we are responsible for the ways in which we greet the world. For our motivations and reactions, borne from our thoughts and…
