Interlude: Holding Yourself Accountable and Predicting the Future

I was pretty close there to publishing a very half-baked blog post. I haven't written much in the last few days, and haven't published anything in even longer. I was feeling very much in the flow with my writing and posting, but as I've gone on I keep noticing more behind-the-scenes work I could be… Continue reading Interlude: Holding Yourself Accountable and Predicting the Future

Tips for on-the-go content creation & being your genuine self online

I seem to be doing a lot of my writing on the bus lately. It's a handy half-hour or whatever it might be to get a little clarity. A time to just let my thoughts roll out. It's handy as well that while I'm sitting here writing what would usually just be journal material for… Continue reading Tips for on-the-go content creation & being your genuine self online

Reframing: Finding Gold in Your ‘Failures’

Transpersonal Growth

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of reevaluating in my life. This hasn’t necessarily just been looking at my circumstances, but looking at how I look at my circumstances. See, the picture we paint for ourselves every day as we go through life is the picture we then use to guide us further.

What if in life you got to draw out your own map?

Some good grub, good music, and I even got around to sawing up one of the christmas trees… Continue reading Mid-day Update

This little rhyme from my childhood memories serves as an interesting way to put across a rather complex idea. I don't decide when I burp, sneeze, when my… Continue reading Pardon me for being rude…

On The Move

I write to you from the service 25, in to the centre of Edinburgh. I have an odd shopping list today: surgical spirit, garden shears, wire cutters, kebab sticks, and a birthday card. Why am I telling you this? Hell, who knows; I'm bored. Plus I like the fact I can write an entire blog… Continue reading On The Move

Yet I do it just the same

Today I spent a good while reflecting on my blogging - why I'm doing it, how I'm presenting it, and that sort of thing. See, I actually have three blogs (well, three main ones). This is where I put out bits and pieces of everything, with no real framework or whatever. This is just my… Continue reading Yet I do it just the same
