Honest Reflections | On Keeping it Real

When you enter a room, and see someone you know, they make ask the fairly standard question,
“How are you doing?”
 

How do you answer that question?

I guess really, that’s the crux of the problem I’m presenting you with. How often are we open, honest, and vulnerable with the people who we’re friends with? (and slightly controversially), I’m going to say, whether those friends are close, or not at all – it doesn’t matter, the question still remains.

Over and Out

Why is it that time just manages to disappear in a blink of an eye?

Sometimes, I seriously feel as if you can snap your fingers, and you time travel. Now, I know that’s not really possible (as much as sometimes we’d like it to be), but time has flown this year.

Dealing with the Unknown

I don’t know about you, but when I don’t know something, I’ll often try my best to find out the answer, or work out what’s going on. To put it bluntly, I don’t like not knowing. Even worse, is feeling out of control.

It can feel almost like a spiral. As if there’s one thing that I don’t know, and that’ll spark another question, and if they don’t get answered, then the anxiety starts to mount. Sometimes, it’s a quick fix: as simple as asking a couple of questions, and my mind is put to rest. But sometimes, it’s not that simple.

The Importance of Rest

I’ve just been blessed to be able to go away on holiday for a few days, and spent five days in the Costa del Sol with my mum. It was lovely to have some quality mother-daughter time, but also really nice to just get away from everything.

It’s been about a month or so since I’ve managed to get a post written and uploaded, and for that I’m sad, but it’s partly because of what I want to talk about today. I haven’t had the time to write content that I’d be proud of, and I had to prioritise resting when possible!

The Next Chapter

This week I’ve made (or, more like finalised), quite a big decision.

Time is flying by fast, and before I know it, I’ll be facing the next chapter.

Honest Reflections | Learning from Children

I haven’t really spoken much about what I’ve been doing this year, in terms of my internship. I mentioned it – only to explain how my plans had changed, but other than that, I’ve kept pretty quiet.

I’d like to change that though, as I’ve been learning an awful lot this year, and I think it’d be good for me to document this, as well as share it.

So… what have I learnt?
