  • Today I made the decision to remove toxic relationships from my life.

    This is something that has been preying on my mind for weeks but until today never had the courage to carry out. Mainly due to guilt

    Why today - in a nutshell the London Marathon.

    As a bystander cheering the runners as they ran by, I could not help but be touched by a kaleidoscope of emotions I witnessed today - pain, determination, agony, joy, tears.

    Probably sounds silly but I felt humbled.

    Made me realise that I do not have to accept whatever adversity is thrown at me.

    - I choose to remove draining elements from my life

    - I allow colour back into my life
