REAL LIFE?

Has anyone seen real life? I think I must have mislaid it down the back of the sofa or something, because I can't for the life of me locate real life. Real life has become unreal chaos. I am busy. Not... Continue Reading →

Post-Traumatic SPARKLE

Everyone has heard of PTSD. But not everyone had heard of PTSS (most probably because I literally just made it up!). On my email signature I describe myself as a 'mental health blogger of post-traumatic sparkle' @summerstartstoshine etc, and ''PTSS' is... Continue Reading →

EAGLE OR PIGEON?

This is a blog about post-traumatic SHINE. Post-traumatic shine is my word for post-traumatic growth....Post-traumatic growth is actually "a thing".... It is a proven thing that psychologists have written about in psychological texts for a considerable length of time. One... Continue Reading →

PSEUDO-KIND

This is an offloading therapeutic post. About how [some] people react to me. You'll notice from the blog address that this blog started out as SUMMER STARTS TO SHINE....it was then pointed out I was progressing really well and already... Continue Reading →

RUNNING MENTALITY

Last evening I had cause to skip about like an excitable spring lamb after a very enjoyable hour and a half jogging past the lambs in the fields adjacent to the quiet country lanes I explored on my run. "The word 'enjoyable' and... Continue Reading →

SHINE OVER STAGNANT

This is a short video sent to me from my bestie-my angel of the south... https://www.facebook.com/OfficialPowerfulTV/videos/1292669884143387/?pnref=story We love this video...apart from the reference to 'committing' suicide (not keen on that phrase)...I very much doubt I will ever achieve the commercial success...

NOT EVEN A SAND CASTLE

A friend sent me the link to this clip from Chariots of Fire this morning, and tells me the slow-mo running sequence of the men sprinting through the waves was filmed at Bamburgh :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSav51fVlKU I can't put a number on how... Continue Reading →

RUN WITH ME!

I currently have 565 people following summerSHINES...my next goal is to get as many UK blogger friends to meet up to RUN WITH ME!-real-life me yes I do exist and am a real person! :P This post is for the... Continue Reading →

#SHOULD/NOT

This is a simple idea I came up with to prompt blog post writing. Simply write alternate sentences about the things that are niggling in your mind causing you grief...things that you tell yourself you should or shouldn't be doing...here... Continue Reading →

SHINE COACHING

Yesterday I had an idea-today it is closer to being a reality! I'm currently getting feedback from my advisors (aka my friends) on business names for my new personal coaching summerSHINES sideline. Woop! As if it isn't enough to blog,... Continue Reading →

INFLUENCE

I am going to be doing some different things on my blog to switch things up a bit. This blog is an evolving living thing-far more than just the nuts and bolts of WordPress templates, domains, widgets and JPEGS that... Continue Reading →

SHINE UNLIMITED?

Canvasses come in many shades of blank. Sometimes you start painting a picture and you realise it's not flowing- not working- not looking right when you take a moment to step back. This is what happened with me. I was... Continue Reading →

THE BRIGHT SIDE

This is a very brief update blog. I've been off wordpress today because I'm focusing on something called "everyday life". It's an unusual concept but it just might work ;) That said, life isn't that particularly everyday or ordinary at... Continue Reading →

HER VOICE

This is a post about her, [who is me]. She, [who is me]-has found her voice. She found it some time ago actually, but the positive news of being asked to do the radio interview yesterday is confirmation of my established... Continue Reading →
