Another first without you…

Another letter to Dad, this time as I’m trying to get through my first Father’s Day without him. I can never be grateful enough for all that he’s given me in life. The pain has not got any better 9 months after losing him, and I’m still not ready to live without him.

To all the mums: super mums, pet mums and more…

I had started writing this post last year, but never actually published it. Reason being that I couldn’t imagine how difficult a day like this is for anyone who lost a mother, isn’t close or on good terms with their mother, is trying to become a mother, or has lost a child. After losing daddy 8 months ago though, I truly feel that we should celebrate our parents and their endless love for us, every day of our lives.

No it’s not OK

Over the past weeks women have been speaking about a fear they’ve been experiencing for most of their life. You might tell me, more of this? We’re sick of hearing the same thing over and over again.

This week I shared one of the biggest challenges I’ve been struggling with for most of my life. I described how... Continue Reading →

Living in pain

This is what it looks like on the outside. This ‘invisible disability’ has been, and will continue to be, one of the biggest challenges in my life. It is incredibly difficult to live in constant pain, and thoughts of the future, knowing that the pain will only intensify are an absolute nightmare. Here’s a little glimpse into one of my biggest vulnerabilities and struggles.

Reflections: 2.0 Theatre & Performing

What started out as an exercise to reflect on my blogging and writing skills, led to the idea of creating a series of reflective posts. In a year when theatre and the arts were practically halted to a standstill globally, I had to take a minute to reflect on how lucky I’ve been to get the opportunity to take the stage several times this year.

Christmas without a loved one…

November and December are always exciting months for my family and I, as right after Halloween we start preparing for Christmas. Saying that we love the holiday is a bit of an understatement. Under normal circumstances, we would have fully decorated mum’s house for Halloween and had a massive party. On the first of November... Continue Reading →
