Not speaking up against hurtful behaviour is not an option

shame

I find this an incredibly difficult blog post to write and I almost wasn’t going to. I hate conflict. I was brought up in a household where we never addressed problematic issues head-on. We swept it under the carpet and forgot it existed. But you know what? When you do that, the issues don’t go away. They fester only to erupt later on. You need to speak out about hurtful behaviour.

I’m happy if I can read more than half the entries, so I can only imagine the time and effort it takes to run Wicked Wednesday. So: thank you, Rebel! (more…)

Time management isn’t easy

The theme for Wicked Wednesday this week is time management. I love this topic, as I am good at managing my time. I’m a very busy person, but I generally manage to fit everything I need to do into a day and still have time for myself (most days).
