The Imposter

I read a lot. Mainly stuff online, but when I make time, I’ll read books and stories. I recently read an article in The Guardian where Jacinda Ardern, the very impressive and inspirational PM of New Zealand, revealed she suffers from Imposter Syndrome (IS). To put it simply, imposter syndrome is the experience of feeling […]

Blackness

The blackness descends Arriving without warning I feel so alone I don’t usually want to write when I’m feeling so down that I can’t see the wood for the trees. But today I’m off work. I’ve slept in, walked the pup in the park, she had a great time. I took some photos of the […]

Autumn thoughts

I am not a fan of Autumn. For me it’s the start of a personal darkness that reaches pitch black by the time of my birthday on 3rd November. These days I just don’t see the point of celebrating getting older, especially when approaching a landmark birthday. I will be 60 years old this time […]

Searching

These days I don’t do conventional socialising very well. And yet I still force myself into the space that looks at me with suspicion when I say I don’t drink alcohol anymore. The drinkers, the normal people, say it doesn’t matter that there is a sober one amongst them, and in truth, it probably doesn’t […]

True experience

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans” – John Lennon It’s become a famous quotation and meme that is actually a line from a song, Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy). I decided to Google the line to make sure I got it right. Why? Well, it all started when I read […]

Inspiration information

One of my favourite things to do right now, is put on some music and let my mind drift whilst editing and mixing photographs into different patterns and dimensions. You may have guessed that I suppose, or already known it if you’ve been reading my musings and observations in the attempt to make sense of […]

Every Picture

I had to start looking for new viewpoints, new perspectives. Looking inwards for strength and hope; outwards for inspiration and vision; consulting selected friends and family for assistance and guidance; I drew on everything I could think of to find opportunities to grow. I knew that I didn’t want to take my life back; I wanted to move it forwards.

Small steps

I’ve been feeling trapped recently. Trapped economically, socially, by sobriety, by loneliness. It’s been making me anxious and miserable as I look for someone or something to blame, which is usually myself. To change things around, I started looking for solutions through meditations, articles, books, TV shows, films and so on for hoping that in […]

Forgiveness

The hardest thing about accepting things you cannot change, is accepting things you don’t like. Accepting things as they are, not as you would like them to be is plain difficult for me. Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Make your peace with that and all will be well – The Buddha For […]

Reaffirmations and re-workings

I’ve not been feeling well for a few days, high temperature, feeling low and wanting to sleep all the time. I’ve had a Covid-19 test and I’m negative, so that’s good. However, the yearning to return to the past has been a persistent thread in my mind all week. On Friday night whilst on Facebook, […]
