Tag: Time is precious

Do you know your parents as well as you think? If not, find out more…

This week’s blog topic was inspired by this Instagram post which Brian May shared on Mother’s Day: I’m not being biased due to Brian being my guitar hero, but these are really wise words. I like to think I know my mum and dad really well but I don’t know much about their childhoods other …

If you spend time with me, you may begin believing in yourself…

I try not to live a life filled with regrets. For me, it is much better to look forward and consider how life can be improved rather than wallowing in past mistakes. If I did this, I may rue missed opportunities and think too much about how a lack of confidence has, at times, seen …

Time moves too fast. Don’t wait to do things – start now.

I’ve previously written about aging and how much time we have in our lives and I’ve been thinking about that again recently, not least because yet another year has passed and we’re already, seemingly in the blink of an eye, 1 month into 2021.

Social media – why I’m cutting back

This has been preying on my mind for some time now… I have a real love/hate relationship with social media.
