I’m Sure I Have Talent?

Everyday I wake up in the morning and ask myself the same question. ‘I’m sure I have talent but where is my talent leading me?’ Self-doubt is a strong toxic trait of mine that I am learning to overcome day by day. But it’s hard when you constantly put pressure on yourself to be the…

Representation Matters

Growing up in ends there was definitely a glamorisation towards the road life. Certain behaviour traits were idolised, whilst other traits were called moist. If you wanted to be socially recognized, part of the cool lot, your path, and in turn your personality was limited.You couldn’t be seen to be getting A‘s in tests or…

Ends to Reality

It wasn’t until I entered the mythical world known…

Now I’m not one to fight anonymous people on the internet so I answered, ‘Dreams too large to fit in a small…

You never know what you have until it’s gone

Dunno about you, but it takes a significant experience or change for me to really understand things in life. Not all but some. I recently started reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. He put forward his analysis of 'paradigms' and their shifts. Without giving too much of a summary, paradigms…
