A breakdown of the mind… Chapter 2: My 800 pound gorilla

Have you ever woken up with absolutely nothing in your head aside from fog, or dark grey cloud? It’s an odd thing to describe, but on that Saturday morning, the morning after that Friday spent working from home and blubbering in front of the painter, i woke up empty. I felt hollow. I thought of … Continue reading A breakdown of the mind… Chapter 2: My 800 pound gorilla

A Breakdown of the mind… or, rather, my own personal mental breakdown…

I’m Selina, I’m 28 years old, and about a month ago I had a mental breakdown... Oh yeah. Like full-force crazy-scale one day (really, I was working from home crying in front of my laptop, blubbering and trying to tell the painter - who is a village local, that I often see when I walk … Continue reading A Breakdown of the mind… or, rather, my own personal mental breakdown…

“I am two different people. The one I see and the one the world sees. Do you ever feel the same?”

We focus on physical health. We know that to keep our bodies healthy we must eat well, exercise regularly, look after our organs, ensure we are getting adequate sleep, rest, sunshine and fresh air. We practice dental hygiene, bandage a cut, and protect broken bones so that they too can heal. We learnt to do … Continue reading “I am two different people. The one I see and the one the world sees.

‘I’d never marry you. I mean, you look great, but I’d never marry you…’

It’s been a while... but with moving to the country (for I am now only a mindlessly rambling Londoner solely three to five days a week), concentrating on a new, more structured fitness regime, curbing the social media presence (coming off of it, aside from post promotion - hey, y’all that clicked from Insta!) and … Continue reading ‘I’d never marry you. I mean, you look great, but I’d never marry you…’

The Joys of Feeling Ugly…

More often than not, I tend to feel ugly. Is this a standard feeling in girls? Women? People nowadays, or is it just me? I’ve never been the prettiest and for the vast majority of my life I’ve been the bigger girl. The one overlooked and joked about. I even joked about it too – … Continue reading The Joys of Feeling Ugly…

When Your Stomach is Not Yet on Flat, Flat…

I think I have plateaued. Well I’ve definitely become rather lax in my diet choices and come to think of it, my exercise choices too. Wait for it… I’ve come quite far in the last two years – yes, my not so humble, humble brag of the week right there – but I think for … Continue reading When Your Stomach is Not Yet on Flat, Flat…

Baby Got Back… But Should Specific Body Features, Be A Fashion Statement?

‘I like big butts and I cannot lie’, I know, that’s song is in your head now, isn’t it?! #sorrynotsorry. I do like big butts. Not in the way that the song dictates, but due to the fact that society is fast embracing a woman with curves. Specifically, a woman with a bum. A societal … Continue reading Baby Got Back… But Should Specific Body Features, Be A Fashion Statement?

Enlightened… A Change in My Date Game…

‘We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.’ – Buddha.

‘Boy, Man Up’ – Know This, You Are Not Alone. I Understand You – I Am Just Like You…

A few weeks ago I focused on an aspect of mental health and social pressures faced by girls. Inspired by ‘Most Girls – a song by Hailee Steinfeld, it sparked a conversation about how attitudes towards this topic need to change. However focusing on girls, is only one chapter of a very intricate story… Unfortunately … Continue reading ‘Boy, Man Up’ – Know This, You Are Not Alone. I Understand You – I Am Just Like You…

Change… Why Do We Always Think That It’s Bad?

So I was chatting with a friend of mine today. Banter was being thrown in all directions, and then it changed. It got more serious. My friend told me that I had changed in the time that we had known each other, and it was because of the gym. This comment wasn't a positive one. … Continue reading Change… Why Do We Always Think That It’s Bad?
