Out of Focus

  The snow is falling without fear, without apprehension. My morning commute is becoming an hour longer than it has to be. My hands grip the wheel as my shoulders hunch up toward my ears. My mind is racing a mile a minute in spite of my car’s snail pace. The flashing break lights inContinue reading “Out of Focus”

You Don’t Blog Anymore (what was all of it for?)

I didn’t consciously decide to take a break from writing blog posts, it just happened. I’ve been writing a lot (well some days) thanks to my editing/writing meetings with Amanda (from Be the Next Her) but that’s for a different project. It’s not that I’ve been too busy to blog, I just haven’t felt likeContinue reading “You Don’t Blog Anymore (what was all of it for?)”

Anxiety Update – Back with a Vengeance

I don’t want to write about this but I should because sometimes a step back means taking a leap forward. I hoped that my previous post about anxiety would be my last. I truly believed that I had gained control over it, that I would never have to deal with the severe heart palpitations, nausea,Continue reading “Anxiety Update – Back with a Vengeance”

Tell your ‘Boring’ Stories

In spite of writer’s block and simply not making time to write as often as I should, I still call myself a writer. I believe in stories; that a life is made up of so many chapters, narratives, and essays that it’s difficult to keep track of which part of the book you’re living in.Continue reading “Tell your ‘Boring’ Stories”

Anxiety Update

What most people don’t tell you about anxiety is that even when you’re on medication it never fully disappears. It still lives within you, taking up space in your heart and your mind. It moves in and hibernates until something doesn’t go as planned, work is busy, or you get into a fight with yourContinue reading “Anxiety Update”

The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect

Although my day as a bride has come and gone, I want to share one more instalment of The Bride’s Diary. One more blog post to document the three regrets I have from the BIG DAY. I wish I hadn’t asked the seamstress to make my dress as tight as humanly possible. As mentioned in my previous post, itContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – In Retrospect”

The Bride’s Diary – WE DID IT

We did it! We travelled a 1.5 year-long road jumping over arguments, dodging (and even embracing) tears, and pausing at crossroads until we reached destination “I DO”. November 11, 2016 was exactly how I hoped it would be; calm, relaxing, and fun. Since we had the ceremony and reception in the same location (The Hazleton Manor)Continue reading “The Bride’s Diary – WE DID IT”

The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO

It’s safe to say that I’ve been rather distracted lately. Apart from all of the last-minute wedding details (which my mom has graciously taken charge of) there’s also this heavy cloud of confusion weighing on my heart. Let me explain… The confusion has nothing to do with the wedding. That is the only thing thatContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – ONE WEEK TO GO”

The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!

As I sat down at La Bamboche with my fluffy cappuccino I realized that I was about an hour early for my final wedding dress fitting. MY FINAL WEDDING DRESS FITTING. Which meant that I would get to take my dress home because it’s so close to the wedding that there’s no point in keeping atContinue reading “The Bride’s Diary – 28 Days to Go!”
