Turning Rejection into an Advantage

This new year, I’ve had a great desire to seek a new career opportunity, because I need a new challenge this 2019.

I have more to give than giving screen announcements and running around until I get so overtired that I can’t sleep at night. Also, I really want to be part of a team that supports each other and I actually feel included within.

Despite my heart’s desire, it hasn’t been easy. Continue reading “Turning Rejection into an Advantage”

Travel Tuesday: There Is So Much of the World to See!

Since I’ve returned to the UK, people often ask me why I left Canada when my visa was up and didn’t apply for PR (Permanent Residency) instead.

My answer is always the same: “there is so much of the world to see!”

The list goes on…

Recently, another name has recently appeared on the list that is a little more positive: The Roamers.

I – for one – am definitely a Roamer!

There’s no doubt about it.

Do We Ever Really Forget?

After watching Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009) last week, I have been struck with one thought since:

Do we ever really forget…?

That was what I took from the movie. Not the happily ever after, the romantic lines, or the general message of “don’t be a dick”; but the thoughts…

  1. Is it possible to never forget someone?
  2. Can you still love someone after being apart for a while?
  3. Do you still remember them because you’re meant to?
