Ambition & Fear - Be A Light Collective
At some point, we all find ourselves struck by a moment of inspiration and that ever-dangerous devil on the shoulder that is ambition, sneaks in. It usually happens in the shower, or at 3am when you really just want to go to sleep. The ideas come at the most annoying times, but they stick to you like honey and you can’t quite shake them.
It’s exciting, it’s hopeful, but most importantly it’s terrifying. Fear matters.
On Indie Publishing - Be A Light Collective
Let’s take a quick trip back in time! Not too long ago, independent publishing was a laughable dream for the deluded. Most of us can remember the only way you’d get published: Find an agent. Apply to a publishing house. Get rejected. Keep applying. Get published.
Now it’s not quite as straightforward … or rather it is.
Rewriting The Mind - Be A Light Collective
At some point in our lives, many of us will be struck by something or afflicted by a feeling so devastating that it changes everything. We face the thought of our future and every dream we have envisioned for it and suddenly it is as if we have no control. We are blinded by the light of the unknown, seeing only a distorted, anxiety-ridden glimpse into what could be or rather what will never be.
Childhood Trauma - The Mighty
There are certain subjects in a person’s life that are more difficult to talk about than others. Talking, however, is exactly what starts the healing process and inspires others to start theirs.
This subject for me is the effects of trauma in my early life, that have followed me up into adulthood. As a child, I was around a lot of conflict and volatility. I was within an abusive, manipulative and psychologically malevolent atmosphere. I was lucky enough to be saved from this life from the efforts of my aunt and my social workers, but the effects it had on me lasted far longer.
Self Evolution - Thought Catalog
The only difference between change and evolution is our awareness of the significance of our own conscious attention.
I’m not talking about the scientific Darwinian usage where we change by natural selection, I’m talking about something more specific to us, to our marriage between choice and chance.
How To Let Go - Thought Catalog
Most of us aren’t very good at saying goodbye. Although, having said that, most of us rarely have the opportunity, when it comes to fading friendships, failed relationships or distanced relatives, to actually close the door and say goodbye.
In the literal sense of going up to someone and telling them you’re leaving, or you can’t hurt to have them in your life anymore, I can’t really help. I’m bad at it. I form attachments quickly and easily and, more than often, the goodbye is not my choice.

Animals Lost in 2018 - Unwritten
Extinction is not just exclusive to the old days of dinosaur history. We are still seeing consistent numbers of beautiful animal species disappearing off of the face of the earth for the rest of our lives. Climate change, poaching, and human selfishness could be the cause of this. It has to be said we are still not looking after our animals the way we should be, or at least not enough of us
