The beginning of the end

I reached a turning point today. It happened while I was at gym because what else is there to do while on a treadmill but re-evaluate your life am I right??

Lately I’v been … Continue reading The beginning of the end

Mum, this is for you… I see you … Continue reading An open letter to my mum in anticipation of Mother’s Day
