I’m never gonna be who I thought I would

All through our lives we’ve been taught to make a difference, do more, be more! And then it gets to a point- and here may be it’s the impending Birthday Me talking, where you worry- have I actually achieved what I was supposed to have… or was it all just castles in the sky createdContinue reading “I’m never gonna be who I thought I would”

You don’t define me

How do we stop others from defining who we are? In a large part, what we think of ourselves comes from what others think of us. This starts when we’re much younger. “Oh you’re so clever,” a teacher might say. Or “she’s so pretty,” a mother might say. And these adjectives then become in aContinue reading “You don’t define me”

The Exhaustion of Being

  So over a dinner with friends the other evening, it seemed like everyone was suffering the same malady… ‘I’m exhausted!’… ‘Done by 9!’….’Cant’t get out! Don’t even want to!’ The problem, we realised was not age… (despite the snickering yawns) or our jobs even…. it was just mental fatigue and the aversion to justContinue reading “The Exhaustion of Being”

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!”

But before you give up hope and start counting the 50 odd weeks left for the next new year…I thought of someContinue reading “#NoFailResolutions”

The face that I put on

So the writing has been irregular because i’ve just not felt well enough… With ‘The Verdict’ premiere just ’round the corner, it’s been rehearsal, rehearsal, rehearsal! But that’s not been what has kept me from writing….it’s just incredible and scary new life lessons I have had to learn. Everyone is an actor. Most people areContinue reading “The face that I put on”

i love you. i hate you.

Those petty fights. Who was wrong? Who was right? You took too long on saying I love you. You think I’m fat? You don’t buy me anything. You forgot my birthday/ our date/ to meet me. Who was wrong? Who was right? Those petty fights. You don’t care about me. You don’t listen. You shoutContinue reading “i love you. i hate you.”

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!”

The only target that counts aka I am amazing!

And it’s that time of year again where you hang up the keds and say – “Well this is it! I did it!” You accept that a year has gone by and you’re not much wiser, but funnily enough a heck of lot older. You’re not much richer but still have lots of unpaid billsContinue reading “The only target that counts aka I am amazing!”
