#BadDay

The Doc’s appointment was not the easy, breezy, smooth sailing Friday evening I expected… Instead I was given a scary fact check and reminded that despite the fact that I take my illness (Multiple sclerosis) rather lightly, it is a serious illness and I will need to start taking more care of me. And soContinue reading “#BadDay”

Kill Cruella!

I have always been rather self destructive. My parents remember this well, when I got myself in trouble when they were in the midst of shouting at my sister for something she had done and I would suddenly point out something I had done which was worse. But cute as that seemed as I grewContinue reading “Kill Cruella!”

Toxic Relationships

How many times do we know someone that or something is bad for us but we cling on to it persistently because of force of habit? We know they’re wrong for us/ it makes us sad, unhappy, weak, angry… but we just don’t let it go… And when we do let go…we mourn- as ifContinue reading “Toxic Relationships”

Life’s not fair

Life’s not fair- a complaint that plagues even the most optimistic of us. And you’re right. It’s the friend who you thought would pick up the phone when you needed them or the pitch that was stolen by the lazy incompetent colleague who pretended the idea was his or just being surrounded by sloth, carelessnessContinue reading “Life’s not fair”

Today I feel good.

Start your day saying this. Even on the days where everything hurts, nothing wants to wake up and where the bed is your only friend. Today I feel good. Say it when everything is going stupidly wrong and when no-one around you is even trying to make sense and all that you created or workedContinue reading “Today I feel good.”

Taking back my strength

It’s play time again for me with The Jury launching this Friday and whereas the word ‘play’ is rather misleading – this is probably the time of maximum stress for me, least fun and no time! Theatre is however an absolute addiction for me… else there would be no possible reason for me to almost cause ulcersContinue reading “Taking back my strength”

And the year happened

And it’s the same time of year that I usually love.. there are carols in the air, a slight nip, buying and gifting of presents and glorious xmas and new year plans – everything is the same and yet everything is completely different. This year tried me in ways I could not have imagined andContinue reading “And the year happened”

To all the haters of Valentines Day!

Well here’s my short letter to you…! To all the Haters of Valentines Day, I’m sorry! But you suck! But for those who feel they deserve a less snippy version… here are my thoughts! We spend our lives criticising, critiquing, hating…not just others but ourselves! We’re never good enough, fast enough , cute enough, popularContinue reading “To all the haters of Valentines Day!”

Help me!

“Help me!” – two words that have got such a bad reputation in the English language! “Help me!”- shows weakness.”Help me!”- shows inability. “Help me!”- is pathetic, laughable, unmanly,namby-pamby and just downright sad! Instead of asking for help , it seems to make more sense to commit suicide, kill others, kill ourselves, commit divorce, burnContinue reading “Help me!”

You are a survivor!

People are horrible. They are mean. They make opinions when they don’t know you. They are harsh, self centered, rude and callous. People are horrible. They lie to your face. They forget you. They replace you. They hurt you- knowingly, unknowingly. People are horrible. But then there are some- a few among a swarm ofContinue reading “You are a survivor!”
