Being in a healthy relationship should feel pretty Easy,
Giving you exciting butterflies, not make you feel all queasy,
There is no push, there is no struggle, there is no ‘I will mould you,’
There is just freedom, a soulful flow, and time to hug and hold you.
When it is my time, it is my time,
I am living the best of my existence.
These sensational Moments are beautiful to me,
Love, laughter and the least resistance.
Mistakes are just experiences, as long as they are learnt from,
We are imperfect humans, featured in our real-life rom-com.
Avoid being so hard on yourself, life is meant to feel amazing,
Enjoy every Eternal sensation, on-the-move or lazing.
The 14th of February. Saint Valentine’s Day,
Exhibiting love like a dramatic play,
For those 364 days that also pass in-between,
Ensure you love yourself to the highest extreme.
Only I am with me, twenty-four hours a day,
Only I decide to zip-it, or boldly have my say.
Only I can make decisions that can change my life forever,
Only I can implement ideas, or choose to disclose them—never.
Know your Limits and your boundaries when your life’s in crazy-mode,
You’re running up that hill, when you could be strolling along that road.
The human body is extremely smart, it will give you a warning sign,
So realise that prevention is better than cure, as you stop to re-align.
I love to write and have devoted time to my little book – and put my heart and soul into it.
I volunteered for MIND in 2005-2007 and it was an incredible experience.

Alcohol. Dancing. Alcohol and Dancing.
This was my favourite combination back in the day. I would just get into the ‘Zone’ and go for it on the dance floor.
Was I completely happy?
Well, at that present moment, I was carefree, music blaring, and with friends; having a fantastic time; no commitments other than buying the next round; being ‘Fun’.
So yes, I was ‘happy’.
However, as time moved on, I started to feel like I was on a comedown after drinking – feeling The Bad News Blues coming my way. Not so Fun. Pretty depressing, actually. I also didn’t really know who I was in general; not really; and it took years of ‘experiences’ and dealing with issues to get to my content place.
So, I quit alcohol in 2012, and haven’t had any since!
I’d quit a few times in my life – taken a healthy break – sometimes for a few months; and then gone back to it. Whilst alcohol-free, I’d be in bars not really knowing how to express myself being sober, because in a way, that’s what dancing is, isn’t it? Expressing Yourself, and as you express yourself, you feel vibrant; alive.
Until as time went on, I just forced myself to get up; and just breathe, laugh and dance. Sometimes I just couldn’t do it – so I’m truly sorry to those who had to be around me at that time! – there was too much going on in my head; and I’d talk myself out of just shaking-it (physically and mentally) and living in that moment. However, these days I always do it no matter what – going wild with a glass of water, Orange Juice, or my one of my favourites at the moment – Elderflower, Lime & Tonic – and it will be this way, now and forever.
So, 4 things I’ve learnt:
Just get up – as quickly as you can – in fact, be the first one to get your groove on
Let your creativity flow – release those stagnant blockages and feel that lively energy
ALWAYS get your coat from the cloakroom at least 30 minutes before the bar/club is going to shut
