Ever wondered if change could be easier? If we could skip the uncomfortable part, straight to the part where it's fun again? Alas, change doesn't work like that. I'm going through a year of change in my life. The truth is as much as known these changes are coming, it hasn't made them any easier. Some of them are exciting, part of 'growing up' and

Welcome to March, How did we get to the third month of the year already? Your challenge for this month is all about honesty. For the next 30 days be honest about your thoughts and feelings.

Grace Read | 19th January 2018

We all have a body. And everybody’s body is different. This is a BRILLIANT thing. A truly wonderful thing. We are all different, which means we cannot be compared to each other. We are incomparable! Woohoooooo! And yet…and yet! Somehow, we feel as though we should conform, as though we should fit in. Be a bit more this or that. Have a bit more hair

Summer is here, the moment we’ve all been waiting for… I think someone may need to tell that to the sun. Sometimes we build our lives waiting for that perfect moment to do something we like or enjoy but why can’t that day be TODAY.
