Own your narrative

March 04, 2019 I watched a great series on “Netflix” a few weeks/months back called “sex education” – the naughty scenes were hard to watch so I mostly covered the phone with my hand (I watch Netflix a lot on my phone) until they were over; but the parts where people were there for theirContinue reading “Own your narrative”

Sliding Doors

February 18, 2019 The below is ENTIRELY fiction. It’s just me daydreaming – thought you’d like to come with me: Sliding Doors I catch the train to work every day. I go up the same stairs. I see the same people – the woman who always eats a mars bar as she waits at theContinue reading “Sliding Doors”

Speak to yourself as you would to someone you love

August 30, 2018 I talk to myself. A LOT. Mostly I try to encourage myself. I think it’s important to be your own advocate because in those deep, dark times where you are all alone – then you have to be your own cheerleader. You have to. What I was thinking about today was how easyContinue reading “Speak to yourself as you would to someone you love”

Not a fan of tough love

August 27, 2018 “I’m just giving you tough love because I care” Well. Care enough then, to shut your mouth. And keep it closed. Thanks. As you can see, I’m not a fan of ‘tough love’. I think when you love someone – it shouldn’t hurt. It shouldn’t feel like someone is taking a jackhammerContinue reading “Not a fan of tough love”

An imperfect Christian

August 23, 2018 My friend Jack said to me the other day that he’s amused with me calling myself a Christian because I’m one of the cheekiest people he knows. “You’re not very religious, Janet” I know. So I thought I’d address that in today’s blog. Lucky you, eh? I am in Christian in theContinue reading “An imperfect Christian”

the 3 P’s and a C

April 23, 2019 Hey you, I’m at work and I really love this job. I don’t know if I love it because 1) I really need a job 2) It’s temporary so I’m not getting caught up in making friends/impressing people but I like coming into work every day and time goes by really fast.Continue reading “the 3 P’s and a C”

“I will try to fix you”

February 14, 2019 That’s one of the most moving songs I’ve ever heard – Coldplay’s “Fix you”. Because in the song, he loves someone and just wants to help them. And that is what Alun, my Psych and my closest and dearest friends are trying to do with me, they all want to fix me. I understandContinue reading ““I will try to fix you””

What do I do?

In my first marriage, my husband Jonathan didn’t sleep with me AT ALL. We NEVER had sex for the entire 7 years. I was a virgin for that entire marriage. I eventually left Jon because I knew I couldn’t live like that. I needed a husband to ‘go there’ with. When Jon and I gotContinue reading “What do I do?”

If you’re thinking of cheating…

Secondly, if you feel tempted to cheat on your husband/boyfriend/other half – here’s what you should do: 1.┬áTalk aboutContinue reading “If you’re thinking of cheating…”

You’re badass

January 03, 2018 That’s what I’d say to my younger self if I could travel back in time – “You’re badass, JD” Makes me laugh – because my younger self probably hasn’t heard that word and wouldn’t quite know what to do with it. Uhh…thanks? Haha. It seems selfish and conceited but I think thisContinue reading “You’re badass”
