Why Failing is Acceptable

The thought of failing in something is enough to scare anybody.

Failure isn’t just about not doing well in exams or not passing your driving test; Failing has a variety of different meanings.

I couldn’t help but feel like I had failed today – failed myself, failed my boss and failed my clients – all because I had to call in sick after being up and down all night with food poisoning. I felt really guilty like I was letting everybody (including myself) down, but why? Everybody gets poorly every now and then, right? I physically and mentally couldn’t go to wdownloadork today, so why do I feel so guilty?

Whilst scrolling down my news feed this evening, I couldn’t help but notice The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt today was called ‘Must Not Fail‘ which again, got me thinking. Continue reading

Should I give up, or should I just keep chasing pavements?

20140426-222421.jpg

I think everyone can relate to this photo. At some point in everyone’s life they get the toughest decision whether they should keep trying or just walk away. I’ve been in this situation many times, and it never gets any easier.

You try to weigh up the pros and cons in your head over and over but it never helps. You get back to that same moment where you have to decide perhaps not what you want, but what’s best. So many things go through your head that contradict each other, like “what If I give up when things were just about to get better/perfect?”, or “what if I hold on and I get pushed away and hurt even more?” Continue reading

“My journey into the blogging world” – Guest Post by Jenny

Today, I am honoured to be sharing with you a very inspirational guest post written by Jenny from ‘Jenny In Neverland’. Jenny is a fantastic book blogger and has even set up her own blog touring business. I hope you enjoy this post, and please head over to Jenny’s blog afterwards here! 🙂


I started blogging in March 2013 and the reason? I was bored. That’s right, there’s no deep, meaningful reason why I started up my blog. I wasn’t overly concerned if anyone read it or if I was going to gain a following. In fact, I didn’t understand where followers came from! I simply came across another book blog, thought it was a good idea and started up my own out of pure boredom. I had previously quit my college course and 1509659_10203337791435838_7431774155389775404_n2my job – I was training to be a teaching assistant in a Primary school and was going to college one night a week to learn the theory side of it and then working voluntarily in a school 3 mornings a week to gain experience. I was on my course for a few months and every day I went into work I realised more and more that it wasn’t for me. I just simply was not cut out to deal with 30 odd school children every day. One day I went into work and I snapped at this boy. I can’t remember what he done but it wasn’t anything bad but I really shouted at him and that was the moment I realised it was time to go. I was also suffering from bad anxiety at the time and being stuck doing something I hated only made it worse.

“In the name of James Dean” – Guest Post by Claudia

Today, I have a very insightful guest post written by Claudia. Here, Claudia is sharing with us a very important message about sharing love and living life to the full. I hope you enjoy it! Please head over to Claudia’s lovely blog afterwards here!


I don’t know if it ever happens to you but sometimes I found myself trapped into Wikipedia reading famous people biographies. (Maybe) Creepy but true!

I don’t know how, the other day I ended up reading James Dean biography. A lot of you maybe don’t even know who James Dean was. Fair. I wasn’t born and my mom was a baby when he died (you should Google him anyway and maybe watch Rebel Without a Cause, such a beautiful movie).

Why am I telling you that? Well, I felt inspired by James Dean. He was a beautiful soul, strong and terribly weak at the same time. Strikingly handsome but tormented.

He made me realize once again how short life is. DEAN2
As far as we know, it’s the only life we get and sometimes we forget about it, especially when we’re young.
I’d like to remember more often that life is short and we should take advantage of it.
We should celebrate life everyday, trying to do the best for ourselves and people all around us.
What goes around, comes around.
And I’m talking about kindness.

“Don’t let the past steal your future”

letSometimes, the thought of letting go seems impossible. You’ve held on to something for so long, so what’s the harm in holding on that little bit longer?

Whether it is a person you’re holding on to, a memory, or an object, it is never an easy move to make.

Have you ever held on to somebody, knowing that you are better off letting them go? So many relationships end up this way, especially first loves. I’ve been there, and I am guilty of holding on when I shouldn’t. Even when you know that it is for the best, you still cannot bring yourself to do it, no matter how hard you try.

How about an object? Something you feel close to. Something you have grown up with, that it is part of you. Perhaps the object is broken, or you have no use to it anymore – Why do we feel so guilty and alone when we try and part with it?
