Today I am pleased to announce that I have done my first post my first collaboration post with Angie over at Confessions of an Awakened Youth – a blog focused on blog focuses on self-improvement, mental and physical wellness, and spirituality.
For this collaboration, we challenged ourselves to write a post on a set topic – our focus was on “Getting over the fear of failure.”
Here is my effort below. Please let me know any thoughts and comments below and don’t forgot to check out Angie’s work afterwards (link at the bottom)
I read a rather interesting post that took a bit of a self-deprecating tone about blogging.
Along with the feeling of insignificance that no one was reading their work, one of the authors concerns was that by blogging they were not contributing anything new.

I have recently taken the time to update and add my ‘Where to Start’ page to the sites menu. This is a place for new and established readers alike to have a look at some of my favourite posts since I started the site in February 2014.
I have broke these down into the following areas:
- Creativity – Posts about writing, blogging and general creativity
- Health – Posts about nutrition and fitness
- Money – Posts about work and finances
- Self-Improvement – Posts about goals, mindset, habits and generally living a better life
I will probably update this page again soon. But please see a copy of the links on this page below to see if there are any posts that take an interest.
