Adulting, The Perfect Spectator Sport

Adulthood is similar to standing on a tennis court and having balls fired at you. You catch as many as you can but some hit you, you miss some and drop some. You’re running around like a madman (or woman in my case) trying to juggle as many balls as you can, while trying to…

My Messy, Unoffical, Love-Filled List Of Goals For 2019

As the year draws to a close we are all currently suspended, bloated and restless, in that post Christmas pre-New Years limbo. I feel myself entering the familiar bubble of nostalgia and deflation that always settles over me at this stage, an irrational yearn for the year that we’re sending off and the overwhelming prospects…

You’re Only Caught Up In The Traps You Set Yourself

How many people can genuinely say that they are doing exactly what it is that makes them the happiest they could be. That they don’t wake up every morning wishing they could be somewhere else doing something more fulfilling, something that gives them more of a sense of worth and belonging. Why do people find…

Fire Mind

There’s something to be said about the powerful consequences of change and how we unintentionally welcome it every once in a while. But in life’s true fashion you’re never prepared for the big ones, you’re never ready for it or aware it’s coming so more often than not you’re knocked flat on your arse.  I…

Seacrets: Life As A Seafarer

Here’s To Always Remembering The Important Things In Life

Things are so painfully fleeting in this life; like midnight rains that soak the streets while we sleep and are gone by morning- leaving nothing but droplets on the grass and the familiar smell of damp in the air. But just like the plants needing the rain in to grow, we also need showers to…

For The Ladies I Love 

When Aristotle was asked ‘What is a friend?’ he answered that it was ‘A single soul dwelling in two bodies’. Phythagora said ‘Friends are companions on a journey, who ought to aid each other to persevere in the road to a happier life.’ Seneca pitched in with ‘Friendships always benefits, love sometimes injures.’ I never…

Sharing Happiness: Make The Best Of Those Around You

It’s crazy how much of an impact other people can make on our lives. Leaving giant footprints behind that even during the heavy rains stay imprinted on us; whether it’s big and obvious or just a slight twitch in our minds. All of the scientists and a lot of the crew have left the ship…

The Secret Ingredient In My Recipe To Achieving Success In Life

How should we measure success in our lives? When I picture a successful life I automatically picture myself laughing. That is just the image I have in my head when I picture my future self and the idea that I have achieved ‘success’.  This isn’t an image I have worked on or sculpted, and I’m…

Excuse Me, I’m Lost. Is This The Road To Self-Actualization?

Wouldn’t it be so much easier if we were given an itinerary for our time on earth. Excluding the gaps and the in-between’s, they can be left blank so we can experiment and personalize; but as for all the major choices in life such as career, image, partner, they’ve all been chosen perfectly to suit…
