Understanding required……….

A few things have come up over the past week or so that I need to verbalize. Someone that doesn't even know me questioned my self esteem. Anyone that does know me can tell you I have never had a self esteem problem. Not that I mean for one minute that I am better than… Continue reading Understanding required……….

36 Hours of Hell

I have spent the past 36 hours in migraine hell......yep, all those migraine symptoms were mine to have and to hold, although not necessarily to hold down! It's been a while since I've experienced one so severe, for that I'm extremely thankful, let's face it, I've had plenty of other %#^* to deal with. So… Continue reading 36 Hours of Hell

Stories to tell.

Well it's been an interesting week or two. Emotional highs and lows, some caring and I must say humbling moments. Pain off the charts and a temper to match......the temper I try so hard to keep under wraps and aimed at myself rather than anyone else, but it's there just bubbling under the surface a… Continue reading Stories to tell.


For all of you……

Also to all the women and men in our police, paramedic and fire services. You make a difference everyday. Please know that what… Continue reading For all of you……


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..

'Tis the season to be jolly! Or so the carols will tell you. The reality for a lot of people is very different to this. It's a struggle that quite often starts well before the first Christmas tree is ever lit up. For many, Christmas means financial hardship, physical exhaustion and emotional distress. For those… Continue reading It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…..

I just turned on CNN as I do late at night to see yet another policeman has been killed in America. It is out of control. We here in Australia are lucky, it's not happening here, but there's always that risk every time an officer starts their shift. It got me thinking about the way… Continue reading WHAT MATTERS????

Hopes and Fears

Today in my Facebook memories I stumbled across my blog post with the title 'It's not just sex......'. Mmmmm it was a reminder. I still believe true intimacy can be found outside a sexual relationship and I still believe trust is the basis of all relationships. I was having a particularly bad day last week… Continue reading Hopes and Fears


1st world problems!

Hair. Around 12 months ago my hair started to go crazy and literally fall out and break. Then outside of nowhere my dead straight, lifeless hair went curly. Yes, curly I say. OMG....... All my life I wanted curly hair and here it was. I'd waited 49 years for it.....well it's closer to 47, the… Continue reading 1st world problems!


No excuse!

I don't care who you are, where you're from. What you do, how much you make. What title you hold or how much you have. None of this, in my eyes defines you. What defines you is how you treat others. There are absolutely no excuses for treating people badly. Some of the people who… Continue reading No excuse!



I have always had this need to help others. My main aim when I decided to share was that if I could help or inspire just one person then it was worth it. WOW, how naive I was. Over the past month and through very different platforms, I have had people tell me that I… Continue reading Needed………
