Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy is one of peace and forgiveness, something that is massively lacking in the tumultuous world around us. A quick scroll through social media shows how massively broken this world is. So much hate, violence and greed. So many people are suffering, emotionally, mentally and physically on a daily basis and instead of healing, they are subjected to

Don’t take life for granted

2021-02-23T16:02:07+00:00January 25th, 2020|Deep Thoughts|

I was following my normal humdrum “wake up” routine today and scrolled though my social media timelines when a video of our safe comfortable lives in the West was juxtaposed with the war and poverty in the East and across the African continent. This struck a cord with me, as my subconscious was already saturated with images of climate crisis,

Today feels like everything has labels attached. If you’ve got a couple quirks, you’re either ADHD, OCD, bi-polar or on the autism spectrum. As a kid, autism was something rare, and it was severe.

My fiancé posted a link on Facebook at 5am this morning about coming to terms with your own mortality.

I clicked the link and read the post, and

  This comes after a huge anti-pitbull campaign after an elderly woman is brutally killed by a purebred pit bull.I have heard one to many incidents of people being attacked by dangerous dogs. But that's only the surface of the issue. Let's take a deeper look.  Why do the dogs attack? Look at this scenario: You're taken as a kid and
