When someone else publishes your blog the feeling is incredible!

As someone who has been blogging for less than 6 months, loves writing & gets so much out of it, it feels amazing when someone shares it or comments saying it's helped them, or it's well written or they can relate.

Day 15 and the anxiety hits reverse – who is the real ME?

So this morning after a great nights sleep, I've woke up edgy & agitated. I really want to stay in bed today. Just sleep, laze about, do nothing. When I first woke up I couldn't think why. We had a blast yesterday at our last day at Universal's Volcano Bay & today we're due to… Continue reading Day 15 and the anxiety hits reverse – who is the real ME?
