    How To Find Your Inner Strength

    I was lying awake in bed the other night with a phrase stuck in my head: “It’s no coincidence the words ‘struggle’ and ‘strength’ have the same beginning but completely different endings” – so I thought we should explore that further. It’s easy to look at “strong” people and think “wow, I wish I had it easy like them” or “I wish I had their confidence” or “they’re so brave, I could never be like that”. But actually, strong people have struggles, they have insecurities, they have anxiety. We only see other people’s outer selves.

    Why I Blog

    Hello from the other side! I’m sorry it’s been a while lovelies. I’m not actually why I stopped writing proper posts – I just sort of got caught up in life.

    TINY ADVENTURES COUNT TOO

    Earlier this week we decided to take the kids fishing… if you can call it that. Actually, we sacrificed hooks and softbait to the sea gods in exchange for a few bits of sea weed (which we respectfully and graciously returned). I think my first line got snagged about a minute after I cast it, a record only to be beaten by our third line which managed to get snagged after about 30 seconds.  It’s OK though; the worse I am at fishing, the more I can justify spending heaps of time by the sea to “practice”, right? After all… this is my year of self development. In a stark…
