Why I’m So Open About My Life Through My Blog?

I have often thought what makes a blog authentic, interesting and engaging, and I have always come to the same conclusion. It has to be real and relatable that connects with the reader, and you sometimes have to lay your heart and soul on the page, and very importantly be honest, especially if it’s a personal post about yourself that’s when you simply can’t hold back, say it as is it. At least that’s my humble opinion. As the title says why am I so open about my life on my blog? Well, there are a number of reasons why,… [Read More]

OMG! Where Has The Last 23 Years Gone

My eldest daughter turned 23 years old at the beginning of July and I thought to myself, OMG! Where have the last 23 years gone? The years really do flash by in the blink of an eye.

When Do You Stop Bailing Out Your Children?

When I was growing up I had very little. Money was always an issue. The truth is my mother didn’t have very much, and as the years went by I just accepted that what I was brought by my mother was what she could afford. The truth is I didn’t know any different, so I was always grateful because it was the norm to me. Being showered with gifts on a daily basis was definitely not me.

Teaching our Children Simple Lessons In Life

Parenting is the hardest job in the world. There is no text book or school of knowledge you can go to in order to learn the art of parenting, so how do we learn to be a parent? Well, it’s simple really. By becoming parents it’s a huge learning curve that will send you on a rollercoaster of emotions and make you doubt every decision you ever make as a parent, and as often as you get right, you will also get it wrong just as often. Years ago, this really didn’t matter. People were not observing you the way… [Read More]

How Fake Is Social Media? Is It Having A Negative Effect On Society?

Nowadays, we are as a society, so influenced by everything that we see on social media or television. In my opinion it is convincing especially the teenage and younger generations that they should live like this, look like that etc and it’s all false, but it is portrayed in such a way that people think it’s normal, but how normal is it really? I personally don’t think it’s normal, in fact it’s totally fake. I recently tuned into one episode of Love Island. Now I totally understand how addictive a show like this can become, but the show for me… [Read More]
