​The Demon Inside Our Heads

I am writing this in a serious state of annoyance and frustration, every ounce of my being is on the verge of saying ‘just give up’.  I have been in this place many a time over my lifetime, at the point where I cannot take much more, wanting to hide under the duvet and refuse to come out. I am being eaten up by feelings of worthlessness; I try to do my best as a person but it just seems like whatever I do, I cannot win, even if I have the best intentions I am still wrong.
There is a demon inside my head and it is telling me that I am not good enough

Happily Ever After; Are Fairy Tales Damaging?

My crazy family
I blooming love the bones of all my family; they are just like me ‘mad as a box of frogs’. I love that all of my family have little ‘quirky’ personality traits that make them special.

Pressure is everywhere; sometimes it is good and can be used as a very handy motivational tool and can get results. As a teacher I am constantly put under a certain amount of ‘pressure’ and it is something that I thrive on to be the best teacher that I possibly can be. 

Growing Grey Disgracefully 

I haven’t really been blessed in the hair department; I was practically bald until I was three years old, it is so straight that it will not hold a curl and worst of all, I have been going grey since I was twenty-one.
I started dying my hair at the age of fourteen, I was desperate for red hair when I was a teenager and have been dying it red for about 20 years on and off. As you can imagine, after fifteen years of my hair gradually going grey it is fair to say it is very noticeable when my roots grow out.

Keeping up with the Jones’s

The Joneses have everything; a great house that is gloriously spotless, a nice car that is free from children’s food and general rubbish, a perfect job that they love and a perfect family that never cause any problems

5 Things You Should Tell Yourself Everyday 

As some of you might know I’ve been trying my best to live my life more positively and try not to take all the negatives in life to heart. This is very much easier said than done as I am terrible at following my own advice. I posted recently about five things that keep me sane but I really haven’t had the time to do these things at the moment, I feel a bit miserable about that.

Being Kind; 6 Ways to Boost Others 

Why is boosting others important?
If hatred breeds hatred then surely doesn’t the same apply to happiness? If anger and sadness can spread like a wild contagious disease that can tear people down people’s spirits and break up relationships then I believe that being kind and positive can do the opposite; it can build people’s spirit and nurture relationships just like sunlight and water can encourage a plant to grow.

5 Things I Do To Keep Myself Sane.

I had been having a lazy Sunday, we have all had them; still sat in my pyjamas, strolling through different blogs and watching Ru Pauls Drag Race.

You have a Voice… Use it.
