Another year, another birthday - a time for reflection on achievements, hardships, even things we'd like to forget. The experiences we go through however, help us become the people we are. It is up to us to relish that or let it break us. I’m still of the opinion that the past two years have... Continue Reading →
This week two years ago was the happiest and scariest week of my life. We had the first performance of 'The Addams Family', but we also received news of dad's aneurysm and Malta's first COVID-19 case. The past two years have literally been life altering, but I believe that I've really grown from these experiences.
It has been a while since my last post, but I've been 'busy' going through some life changing experiences, and settling into new beginnings. Forever grateful for the opportunities life presents at moments when we least expect them. Photo credit: Domenic Aquilina
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.
Since writing the post about my dad, it’s been incredibly difficult to write down my thoughts. Thoughts are constantly flooding my overthinking brain. It’s just been incredibly difficult to express myself. These are some incredibly raw emotions that I finally managed to express, that clearly show the vulnerability I’ve been experiencing over the past weeks. Hopefully it’s the start to regaining my writing mojo.
A letter to daddy who left us two weeks ago, as we're adjusting our lives to learn how to live without him. Nothing can fill the empitness in our hearts right now. Daddy, Where do I begin? I’m not meant to be writing this... not for another 20 to 30 years at least. Words usually... Continue Reading →
As we’ve already established, I celebrated my birthday this week (and the 10th survival anniversary, for those of you who haven’t read about that yet). I have been lucky enough to grow up enjoying quite ‘elaborate’ celebrations for my birthday. I am always on the lookout for occasions to ‘celebrate’ - throw a party, host... Continue Reading →
Just over two years ago a little baby girl changed my world beyond my imagination and stole the biggest part of my heart. The arrival of this mega change to my life came as quite a surprise though. Here’s the story... I had dogs at home for most of my life as I was growing... Continue Reading →
Let’s be honest, the situation we're currently living in was unexpected and hit most of us hard. All our lives we hear about wars and illness and poverty, and in our minds those are things that happen in remote countries and to other people. The island seems to enclose us in a sort of protective... Continue Reading →
