Just Stand

I believe God created us to walk and talk with him daily and find the actual practice of this hugely effective in calming my whelm. Recently though, when I’ve had these times of ‘hanging out’ Jesus has given me one gracious command. “Just Stand”

Year 11

Today I woke up remebering a today from the past. Waking up and realising my whole life had just turned upside down and nothing would ever be the same. And you said “take courage” and I did. Yet I didn’t realise that courage doesn’t always take the form of a lion; boldness not always identified…

You can’t hold me down

I’m on a train somewhere between Ebbsfleet and London on my way to something new, playing with my pen and notepad, aware I should write about how I am feeling right now. I know if I do, it will fire an arrow at the enemy which is desperately seeking to hold me back. People often…

Blue

Welcome to Blue Monday I’ve seen a lot today about the dreaded Blue Monday. Contrary to common belief, Blue Monday is not a particularly scientific formulation. It is, I believe, a very clever marketing technique that has created a life of its own and perhaps even become a self fulfilling prophecy. Don’t get me wring,…

The one where I saw Hamilton

To mark my 36th year, I got to see the show I’d been obsessing about since returning from NYC in 2015! Six rows back, on the left hand side of the beautiful Victoria Palace, the story of Hamilton unfolded before me… “just you wait, just you wait”

Rubiks Cube

“my brain is the sort that at the mention of an idea, an event, or a problem; creates a thousand possibilities in a moment. Yet it is too fearful to pick even one and so I waver” Recently I was talking to a friend, another creative, who is often able to see what I am…

The lake

I didn’t think I would be inspired again, but then you led me to the lake. Sometimes you make decisions when you are overtired, feeling lonely and unable to sleep and you wish you’d stayed away from your purse, cupboards, screens. Other times, you make a decision that stays with you till morning and walks…

What Wakes Me Up

I can’t believe its almost a month since I last posted. My fingers aren’t so quick on the letters, my mind is struggling to remember how to piece thought together. I know if I sit and plan, it will never get written. I have a notebook full of drafts to prove this. A stream of…

This is Spring

If you were to describe yourself as a season – which would you choose? I think, hands down, I am a spring personality: a little chaotic, always seeking the new, unpredictable in my energy levels and require support and nurture for growth. If you have read my blog for a while, you will know that I use the…

The last time I cried

hello friends! I love finding out things about people and so when Kara from Innocent Charm Chats has tagged me into her all about me I was fascinated to read her answers. I loved the questions too, I think that they show a lot about the soul of a person. I set about answering them and here…
