Stop living for your parents

“Death is the only destination we all share” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life… Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs, 2005 Hi, you’re going to die one day, stop living for your parents. From my own experiences, the experiences of my friends, family and many others, I have noticed that too many of us are living for our parents.

Sarah takes Seville!

To escape the cold British weather, I took my second solo trip to Seville, I spent 3 nights in the sunny Andalusian city and I can’t wait to return.

Two thousand and sixteen, you have been good to me.  This year has been exceptional and I have truly been blessed. Obviously it wasn’t always  plain sailing but I got into shore safely  and had my fair share of large cocktails. The best parts were completing my placement, my holidays, going to several concerts, gaining more of a direction of where my life is going and exploring what my real passions are. Placement: Completing my placement has been my most meaningful achievement so far. Life […]

Consistency.

Today I’m writing about consistency because it affects my life in more ways than I had originally thought. I remember all the times where I wasn’t consistent and failed to get the results I wanted. Then I remember all the times I’ve been consistent and I was happy with the outcome because I had exceeded my own expectation of myself because I was consistent. Both times the only person that could control the outcome was myself. CONSISTENCY /kənˈsɪst(ə)nsi/ The ability to behave and act in in a similar way overtime. I say ability because it’s a skill and it’s bloody hard. My favourite times where being consistent […]
