miss you, bee

For a long time after Jess died, I was angry. I guess in some ways, it’s normal to be angry when someone you love dies. It’s unfair for someone so young to die. She had struggled and conquered so much, and had so much life left to live, and then, suddenly, this. A freak accident,…… Continue reading miss you, bee

Going against all the messages saying your body is the enemy, and actually loving…… Continue reading work in progress? nope, you are a masterpiece.

forget “chill”, be vulnerable

Don’t text first – you don’t want them to have the upper hand. Don’t take part in that talent show – you might mess up and become a laughingstock. Don’t ask for a promotion at work – what if they say no?? How many things do we, every day, prevent ourselves from doing because of…… Continue reading forget “chill”, be vulnerable
