Day 18: what I like about being a female

Yesterdays women’s marches across the world really made me think about how great women are as a sex and how we fight for and support each other. Now I have already wrote about what like most about men, so don’t say I’m being biased!
I therefore thought I’d put together a collection of what j like about being female.

So, here we go: Continue reading “Day 18: what I like about being a female”

Day 15: what makes me happy

Hello lovely readers, so first of all…. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY week (5th Jan)!!!!!!!! I am of ripe old age of 28. Yes 28, I did think that my life would be very different right now, but hey that’s life.

Today’s blog is all about happiness and what a great day to do the blog as I am feeling extra happy.

Happiness is a feeling, a thought, a smell, a memory and a sensation. If you can think of one happy thought a day, it really does help.

So here we go: Continue reading “Day 15: what makes me happy”

Everyone deserves to be loved.

wp-1480438773059.jpgSo here’s something, the other day I was having a chat with a number of people and we were all discussing relationships etc, who’s single, who’s in a relationship and who’s married.

Now it’s coming to the point in various friendship groups of mine that they often glaze over me, when discussing about future relationships. I have seen this happen more and more even with my girl friends, and it’s a right bugger sometimes.

Sometimes I think ha ha that’s funny, yes I have been single for many years etc but then sometimes that actually really hurts. It’s kind of like they’re going, oh we won’t bother with her she has been single so long, even we have given up on her.

The other night, there were two singletons in the room and the group were discussing us. One of my friends saw on my Facebook that had have been talking to a boy/lad/man (let’s say) and I’ve been trying to keep it private for some time. Then suddenly they were all interested and honestly we just chatting at the moment, then mid way through many saying “I hope you get a boyfriend soon”, one blurted “no I don’t think so, I hope …..insert name….. gets a boyfriend before her”.This person was deadly serious.

I mean, kick a girl when she is down!!!

It really took me aback and made me think, yes of course the other person should find love, but why should someone find love over someone else?

We all deserve love, we all deserve happiness no matter your size, shape, height, ability, race, and sex.

Don’t judge others by someone else’s opinion 

wp-1475944302738.jpg

Something that really annoys me with human nature is the idea that people think we should like or dislike someone else because of another persons opinion.

I was told the other day that one of my negative points is seeing the good in others that others don’t see. I seriously was taken aback by that comment. I do not understand how that is a negative trait. Do you?   Continue reading “Don’t judge others by someone else’s opinion “

Hello 17 year old me, this is future you.

94e631e2dab403bcaa59a0e6f8e53b1e.jpgImagine if we could go back in time and tell our younger self some tips and tricks that you have learnt along the way. 10 years ago I was 17, I was just finishing my GCSEs and starting my AS levels and thinking what A Levels I wanted to do, whether I was still going to stay at my school and what would happen with my friendship with my “best friends” that I have known since aged 11, on top of that dealing with issues of being a 17 year old girl.

Be strong, you can do it.

35d2d9684ba9cf61e3680088375c9654Isn’t it funny how much of a little bit of courage and an attitude of “oh fuck it!” can do for you.

Last week I was having a bad day, the morning started off with me breaking the kitchen tap to the point water was going everywhere, I was on my own and I didn’t know what to do…. I was also trying to get ready to visit my best friend in eastbourne and I just thought what else!!

I missed the train. Enjoyed a beautiful day with my bestie and her two little girls and then got on the wrong train home.

At this point, I thought “you know what, what else can go wrong…..” Then….

Drunk minds speak sober thoughts

907fcf9a6966c8c0337e510dd55682eaJust a quick post today, as I am feeling in a reflective mood. Why is it when we drink, we start to think of all of the shitty emotional things that you have been storing away in the back of your mind!

You know those thoughts that are under lock and key, you don’t want to think about that person, situation or those emotions.

I often find myself going back to the same thoughts and emotions each time I become tipsy, and this is where I need to surround myself with other tipsy people. I honestly don’t think that I could be the type to drink on their own, otherwise this may happen:

giphy

It could be me walking past certain spots of town, where I know I have created a happy memory there, or a certain song…. I will become a mental mess LOL!

But drunk minds do speak sober thoughts, and the amount of times I have had to put the phone down…. STEP AWAY FROM THE PHONE CATHERINE!!!! I know I have been there far too many times, either via myself being too truthful or my friends/my crush… it can end in tears and it often does!

So what do we need to do……. we need to get drunk with other unstable emotional best friends.

We are misfits but we work.

I have two main friendship groups in my life and of course the special ones in my life that fit to make the puzzle but I love the friends that I have in my life. We are all different and we all have to roles which we just fit perfectly together.

I think in order to have an amazing friendship group, every single person should be different, why should we all be the same. Continue reading “We are misfits but we work.”
