Hey guys! How’s lockdown treating you? How are you feeling?
I promised you all and myself that I would continue this series, despite now being on lockdown and suffering from a lack of inspiration!
But I had this idea while in a hotel room during a work trip and started writing it then. I got a bit derailed with everything going on, but still it qualifies to be part of these bunch of blog posts, don’t you think?

Hey everyone. I’ve been MIA. I know it’s terrible, but I’m back and talking about boundaries…
If I’m honest with you all, I’ve just not had the urge to write. My thoughts have been too garbled to be useful to anyone. I’ve been busy and tired, with a back page full of incomplete posts.
Today is different. Today, I sit in a hotel room not far from home finally ready to write. It’s approximately 5pm, the sky is murky but beautiful. I’ve come to talk to my fellow bloggers, and muse over life with my readers. It’s a fresh chapter to what I hope will continue in 2020. Chronicling my life in a bunch of random hotel rooms – an escape from the hustle and bustle. A place, totally detached from what I know…
Hey Guys? What’s new? How’s your week been?
Yes, I know I’ve been MIA – let’s just skim over that and get right into it.
So, I’m sure you’re wondering what exactly an ‘L’ is. For those of you not down with the lingo, an ‘L’ stands for a loss. And as young people the losses we experience as we ‘adult’ tends to take a bigger toll on us and perhaps longer to recover from. So, I wanted to talk about the various lessons I learnt from my losses and how you can too…

Hello Everyone! What’s new? How’s it going?
Now I should honestly hang my head in shame because I’ve been gone for two months. But I’m back and was recently inspired by an article on the trap of turning your hobby into a hustle. And it made me think why so many of us (myself included) are making our hobbies a source of income and not just something we enjoy.

Hi Guys! How you doing? What’s new?
So this topic has only recently become relevant to me as I’ve been experiencing it a lot myself these past few months. And that’s absolute burnout.
The tiredness that comes with having had thrown yourself into everything and feeling so finished at the end. And so many of us go through this without knowing how to deal with it, especially as young adults.

Hey guys! What’s new? How’s your week been?
I know it’s been a while since my last blog post, but I’ve been doing some growing y’all!
So, I wanted to talk about the importance of getting out of your comfort zone to enable change. But how does one do this when fear always seems to keep you from trying new things…

Hey guys! What’s new? How’s your week been?
So, I wanted to talk about how we can be really hard on ourselves, causing the very effects we are working to avoid. We end up experiencing more stress, worry and self-loathing, over failing to meet our goals. But in a world where doing more all the time is the norm, how can we treat ourselves with the upmost kindness and understanding…?

Hey Guys! What’s new? How’s your week been?
So, I wanted to talk about feeling like you’re not doing enough when you can or should be doing so much more. Many of us young people struggle with this, especially in an era where you can create your own platform and opportunities. Yet, how can one overcome the sometimes debilitating feeling of not reaching your full potential?

Hey guys! What’s new? How has your week been?
So I wanted to talk about one of the most infamous days of the year. Valentine’s Day, an occasion to show love to our significant others. But I wonder, if this day has lost it’s true meaning and has any place in present society…. Continue reading “Valentine’s Day: A thing of the past?”
