Late night reflections

Quite a lot has changed this year... it's not just the fact that we have a global pandemic happening - which appears to have no end in sight. It's that I feel I have had a shift in perspective which I have noticed a lot over the last few weeks - perhaps couple of months.... Continue Reading →

Lockdown love…

No.. this isn't a post about how I have somehow managed to fall in love during lockdown - I mean I have tried - but thats another story... this is about how during lockdown I have actually found the peace within. Don't get me wrong - it was really really ropey to start with -... Continue Reading →

To Mum and Dad…

If I was brave enough I would say.... I wish I could share that I wanted to end it all last year, I wish I could explain why, but the truth is I have no idea. I know I have always been the one in the family who’s been driven, who knew where she was... Continue Reading →

Reflections since 2016

I am so hard on myself all the time for all the things I get wrong or wish I had done but haven’t, that I often forget all the things I have achieved and learnt about myself over since the day I left my husband. So here is a compilation of things – more for... Continue Reading →

Time to dust off again…

It's been a while since I felt I could write a blog post, so much has been happening since my last post, I don't even know where to begin, but today was the first day that I reflected after a day pretty much spent hiding in bed with a book and trash tv on Netflix... Continue Reading →

I've debated a long time about whether to show my face on here. I had thought to myself perhaps I want to be anonymous, that it would allow me more freedom... and it does, but it also attributes to me still hiding who I am. I don't want to hide anymore. I am me, Gems.... Continue Reading →

Ooops… I did it again!

It can be the simplest of things, it doesn't have to be complicated... but all of a sudden it's... Continue Reading →

Getting back on track

2019… the adventure awaits…

Another year has disappeared. I still have no idea what direction life will take. I have been reflecting on 2018 and while it was a difficult year it was definitely one of growth. So much changed last year - my nan died, I had friends get married, friends start divorce processes and friends that had... Continue Reading →

The Journey Continues

It's been a crazy time since splitting with my ex-husband... time has literally disappeared and life has taken so many twists and turns... so many highs and lows, but one thing is for sure it's been one hell of a journey... I've been officially divorced around a year now, ending a long relationship with my... Continue Reading →
