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.

Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus | The …

Welcome back to the next instalment of my recent adventures round the Holy Land.

Just another place we hear so much about, but dream of seeing? ‘twas definitely the case for me. Our day trip to the Galilee region was one of two long day-trips of sight-seeing – but while they were hot (around 35/36°C), long, and full-on, I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see and explore some of those areas.

Confessions of a Fresher

Let’s just say this. Freshers’ week is unlike anything else I’ve experienced before. It’s full on, good fun, but also pretty overwhelming at times. I’ve tried to sit and write this several times this week, but never got further than a couple of lines. It’s exhausting, and sometimes you have to take note of that, rather than pushing through it.

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.

Travel is always something special: the opportunity to explore new places, experience new cultures, and learn from the people you meet. And when you have the opportunity to travel somewhere that you’ve always heard about, and grown up learning stories about certain places, it is even more special.

That was definitely the case with this trip. I’ve recently come back from a short trip to Israel and the Holy Land, and had the opportunity to walk around, and explore the places I’ve grown up reading about in the Bible.

Let’s Talk About Anxiety

Let’s talk about Anxiety.
But let’s also talk about dealing with anxiety. And learning to overcome it.
Because otherwise, this would be a very one-sided tale.

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.
