Protecting My Peace.

"I'm not a doctor, a therapist, a philosopher, a priest or an expert on anything. I'm just a human being who has thought a lot about how to be alive in this world."- Cathy Rentzenbrink (A Manual For Heartache) My reluctance to starting this blog initially stemmed from fear that people wouldn't be interested in...

Living Single.

Here's another blog post with pictures that have nothing to do with the subject at hand but at least they're cute. 😉 Guess what guys?! Still single! I'm going to say this loud for the people in the back- please desist from showing me sympathy when I say I'm single. I am TIRED of hearing... Continue Reading →

New Year. Better Me.

2017. I want to say it wasn't a good year but I think a truer statement would be, it didn't end well. I started the year on leave from work for my depression and I am happy that I can say I am definitely in a better place mentally. Every day isn't a good day... Continue Reading →

A few too many. Last week it was all about Carnival and now it's Girls' Day Out. A... Continue Reading →

16 & Pregnant.

I can still recall every moment leading up to the second that I gave birth to Kiara. I met my daughter's dad when I was in third form and on my way home from school one evening. Little did I know he'd later become my 'high school sweetheart'. I never had a 'serious' boyfriend before... Continue Reading →

Bim. 

Who would have thought I'd enjoy being in Bim so much?! Distance does make the heart fonder! I'm going to spend the next two and a half weeks with my favourite person- Kiara. I look forward to waking up early to get her ready for school, pressing her uniforms, cooking and cleaning up after her-... Continue Reading →
