“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” – Confucius. Perhaps the best cure to all of our deepest worries in life isn’t in the chapters of the latest self help book, but in the caves of our ancestors. Wouldn’t life be a whole lot less stressful if we just ran barefootContinue reading “Do We Put *Unnecessary Pressure On Ourselves?”

The Simple Way To Feel Better
Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. A stroll in the park, a sunbathe in the garden, a trip to the seaside. Yet, we as a society can easily overlook these little pleasures in life at times as we set our sights on the newest phone, the bigger house or the better car.Continue reading “The Simple Way To Feel Better”
Why Haven’t I Written Anything In 4 Months?
If you’d thought I’d perished, fear not, for phoenixes rise from the ashes, and I from my bedroom once in a blue moon. What can I say? This sedentary state of mind and body takes its toll. But before I start quoting Confucius and reading palms I’ll adopt a more grounded tone of voice. SoContinue reading “Why Haven’t I Written Anything In 4 Months?”
You Are Unique, No?
Something which has fascinated me for quite some time is this shared feeling many of us have, a feeling of internal friction. A part of us is pulled towards wanting to feel unique and feel like an individual, while the other pushes us to want to fit in and conform. And so both forces, (asContinue reading “You Are Unique, No?”
Yes, Positives Do Exist (Just Squint Harder And You’ll See)
With so much negativity festering daily, from scaremongering and sensationalising tabloids spitting doomsday ‘news’ into our turquoise surgical masked faces, to apocalyptic scenes in some of the local supermarkets.

Has everybody’s motivation to do something productive been pretty much thrown overboard, and chained to a concrete block the size of a small car destined to sink to the bottom of the Mariana Trench never to see the light of day again? Or is that just me? As a human being I like to takeContinue reading “‘Tis The Season To Be (Un)Motivated”
I’ve been trying to find new ways to keep myself occupied, especially since ‘winter is coming; and we all know what that entails. Stomach ulcers from too much hot tea drinking and cold sores from too much mistletoe snogging (well perhaps not this year mind you). Anyway the fact is I’m finding that boredom isContinue reading “Boredom-Busting Ideas”
It’s Been A While…….
There are people posting videos of themselves climbing their stairwells enough times they’re making Everest appear like little more than a speed ramp in comparison. And here I am struggling to get up in the morning and ‘head to work’ five footsteps from my bed. But really, I must admit, and like many others (whichContinue reading “It’s Been A While…….”
When Will The Summer Arrive?! :(
If you find yourself clutching onto a hot water bottle as if it were a life-saving hand at the top of a cliff which had your death sealed on it. Then you must only be in Northern Ireland in the height of its scorching summer at 14 degrees Celsius (on a good day). YesContinue reading “When Will The Summer Arrive?! :(“
Poem – ‘Try’
Swallowing pride, Suppressing suggestions of surrendering, To the doubts damning me from within. An attempt to achieve, Guised more as an attack on my ego, Failure must be coupled with Cheshire cat’s grin. To try, An action well-known to the brave. Yet not even an acquaintance of I nor him. Trying toContinue reading “Poem – ‘Try’”
