Introducing: You’re never as alone as you feel.

Sitting at a booth of a quirky little coffee shop, sipping on decadent mug of hot chocolate with cream (i really shouldn’t but I am LOL), I feel
exactly how I thought I would feel as I write my first official post.

I can’t help but miss the pre-covid days- almost as if I functioned better. The truth is that I’ve been battling for a long long time.

At times, i feel like the world’s biggest (literally) misfit. And then, I think
about just how many times people have used that word and I realize that


I am not all that alone…

There are so many things that I do not have control over, but I can choose to be happier. I do not always make this choice though, in fact I rarely feel like I have the energy to stand upright let alone muster an entire emotion. These are the days I choose to stay in bed, stuff my face and hide away from the world.

I’m learning that it’s also okay to do that sometimes.

Today by starting this journey, I am choosing to try. I am choosing to share my struggles, gains and losses with anyone who may be going
through something similar.

My goal is two-fold, to vent and to share with the hopes of encouraging someone, making someone smile, or even aid in procrastination (guilty as charged!).


Who am I? I am the daughter of The King.

I am also a 28 year-old junior doctor.

I am a girl.

The girl who wears black too often.

The girl with a weight problem.

The girl who wears her heart on her sleeve.

The girl who looks a little scruffy sometimes (in my defense I always

smell good).


The girl who laughs a little too loudly.

The girl who cries a bit too much.

The girl who is always stressing about something.

I am all those people and I am about to share my journey with you, if you will let me.

My onwards journey, my ups, my downs and everything in between.

You’re never as alone as you feel,
Shirley.
