REBOOT! – Mental Strength and Healing

pic from Take action now with this link to motivational quotes REBOOT! The rise and descend of reaction. The forceful release of revenge, readily clung to finite resolution. One apparent option stressed. Acknowledge. Glaringly awkward and slick. All roads leading to high ground seemingly smashed to smithereens. Moisture darted, exhausted breaths, no reason andContinue reading “REBOOT! – Mental Strength and Healing”

#Decipher The Plot Challenge

   Vanessa sat alone in the apartment she bought for her love, she sobbed hysterically but briefly before correcting her emotional response. As Vanessa became quiet with her thoughts the rustling of the leaves outside her open window further calmed her senses, her conscience. She pulled the provoking image out of the photo album, neatlyContinue reading “#Decipher The Plot Challenge”

Autumnally Unforgettable (part 2 of Summer Plans the short story)

Miranda had bravely managed to recount much of what had to be a very traumatic experience for anyone, let alone a teenager. After my typical thirty minutes were up, I decided it was probably best to take a break from the topic. I suggested that we could meet again tomorrow to get Miranda’s final thoughtsContinue reading “Autumnally Unforgettable (part 2 of Summer Plans the short story)”

Just A Hunch – Short Story

‘Anthony can you hear me?’ What kind of question was that? He thought, of course he could hear them. Every single one of them and they were annoyingly talking over each other like a fan gushing over their favourite band member. All statements and very little substance, seasoned with spontaneous vague questioning. No that wasContinue reading “Just A Hunch – Short Story”

Get Off The Fence More Often

I’m referring to the layperson habit of regularly applying the finest acting skills to appear like they agree with something or someone that they really don’t. Reasoning for the former behaviour includes the relationships that are often hidden from others: capitalism and their self-esteem, habit and the blissfully ignorant bystander or maybe power-seeking and disregardContinue reading “Get Off The Fence More Often”

The Cough *Thriller*

Contemplating divorce from his second wife and buried in debt to boot, Edmund refused to accept that this would be his life. It was surreal, too far removed from what was expected for someone like him. Just when Edmund thought things could not get any worse secrets around him begin to unravel. Edmund was not aContinue reading “The Cough *Thriller*”

Natural Sleep Remedy

The only part of the ‘light skin’ ‘dark skin’ debate that I have time for is its laughable and obvious contradiction. To support either side says to the beautiful array of our fellow human beings you are not even worth a mention. It is not inclusive, though you may believe you are helping to give aContinue reading “Natural Sleep Remedy”

It’s Just Hair

It’s just hair said everyone and believed no one especially me. I had been diagnosed with Graves Disease about fourteen years ago and was now also in the grey area of a Thyroid condition. Even after I was discharged from hospital care I still had related symptoms that I had tried my best to manageContinue reading “It’s Just Hair”

Inspiration…And Then?!!

You perceive yourself as a positive individual good. You surround yourself with motivational books, quotes and other resources even better. I’ll just leave a few of my favourites over here…. Okay slight understatement with ‘few’ but it’s to show you that I’ve been there. Reading all the positive information I could get my hands on,Continue reading “Inspiration…And Then?!!”

But I’m Not A Hare, I’m A Tortoise! 

Were my thoughts after speaking to a friend that I had not spoken to in quite some time. We went through the formalities before she hit her stride and proceeded to grill me for a relationship update: “Are you seeing anyone?” She was recently married, yes you heard right I had just discovered this so clearlyContinue reading “But I’m Not A Hare, I’m A Tortoise! “
