Good Teachers are Good Therapists (true story)

Forgive me for my absence from the blog in the past month or so (excluding my last post which I posted a few days ago). I needed some more time to digest other parts of my life although my mind was always conscious of ideas for this blog as well as a collaborative blog. I passed my driving practical test Friday afternoon. It was my first driving test ever and I passed it. I know how easy that sounds, and that’s when words can be deceiving. But the journey was somewhat long and felt even longer (because you get impatient and start doubting your abilities, and also have bad days). I went through a few instructors before I found one that was actually encouraging enough but not patronising, who cared and gave me two hours of their time that wasn’t a waste. (You wouldn’t believe how many seem to rob your money and your soul). Now that that path is over and fulfilled, I actually don’t know what to do with my time (I do, but mentally …

What They Never Taught You

I have been meaning to talk about the below video for some time now. Since its release, I’ve actually viewed the recorded piece over ten times. It went perfectly with what I had wanted to talk about for a long, long time, but I didn’t quite know how to express these thoughts. Of course, am more than glad that there are others who share similar thoughts to me. Since starting this blog, I knew I wanted to write things that were meaningful, thought-provoking, brave and graceful – but how does one share this slice of cake to the internet?

Normally, writing can come quite fluidly to me but this time has proven difficult. How does one communicate a thought, an idea in exactly the way they are thinking it, picturing it? Being misunderstood or misinterpreted isn’t quite part of the plan – and that’s the problem. We think there’s a perfect way to …

Special Thanks to ‘M’

It is no surprise that everyone goes through a ‘phase’, at which half the time, you find that it is a personal battle. Otherwise, it is a state of growing up and well, a part of life which eventually, you move on from. Things can only truly get better. And when you’re really young, you take such statement for granted and think of the worse, when in reality, the ‘worse’ has barely touched you. Now, I realise things can only truly get better…the best is yet to come. Of course, growing up and becoming an actual ‘adult’ takes time to feed on. Even I am just about getting used to it all. Sounds silly, right? But there is one thing that I’ve learned and that I want to share on this blog. I used to be a really quiet and shy kid. Admittedly, I still am that person because that will never go away but I’ve developed into someone being more sure of herself. I remember about two or three years after finishing high school, …
