MIDDLE NAME - INSECURE. Hey there, Not there...Here. Nope, further down in the back. Further...ffffuuurrttthher. Yep, that's me in the corner with my head bent in seeming concentration while my thoughts highlight every point where I’ve gone wrong in the past five minutes. I’m not vocal enough, I’m not funny enough, I'm not friendly enough, … Continue reading These Scattered Thoughts.
You have probably heard it all before. How you are enough and you shouldn't be looking at other people's paths. And your head might get that but translating that into daily living is where you seem to fall short. After all, no one lives in your head but you. They have no idea what you … Continue reading To the person who feels ‘not enough’.
I had the opportunity to attend a Women's Virtual meet yesterday. I'm not usually the kind of person who does that and going in I had my own speculations about the entire setup. The questions started off light and funny - they were playing 'Never have I ever'. And the stories that backed up their … Continue reading Speak Life

For a while in this season (the faith-beating season from about one post back) I have believed deeply that it is … Continue reading How to finish well
One of my favourite scenes in The 100 Season 1, because I'm yet to go beyond Season 2, is when the ship lands on Earth and Octavia is offered the first step on earth. She steps out and doesn't go out in flames and she screams, 'We are back, b*****es' and then Radioactive by Imagine … Continue reading 5 things I learnt…or remembered from being offline.
Who is? Well I am. For about three weeks. Maybe more, hopefully less. But I do know that a digital detox is good every once in a while. I was off social media about this time last year too. And I thought maybe I will push it to the blog too. Just to get my … Continue reading Digital Detox!
What is the appropriate response to a mental breakdown? This is a repost from sometime in the year - May, feels so far and so close at the same time. Anyway, I feel like a good cry today so if you don't mind, let's bawl over these words. Break down! What a word! Does it … Continue reading Still waiting for permission to cry?
I did mention that I had taken an online poetry course, right? But I probably didn't mention that at the climax of that class I toyed with the idea of compiling my own anthology. Do you want to know what the title was going to be? Well here is another poem to usher us into … Continue reading Free verse.
