I was going to aim for some form of intense eloquence and intellect when creating a piece regarding this daily prompt but then thought, what the hell – lets make it real!

So recently I’ve gained a little weight and as a consequence I tend to jiggle a little bit more than I used to. I used to have a lot more time on my hands before I started working and focusing on university work – which is to be expected naturally, but it means that I have a lot less time to work out to the extent that I used to.

Whilst I have gained a little weight, I’m not gaining weight in a way which should cause concern. The point of this post is to reassure people that you’re going to change and develop. Your priorities are going to shift and you’re going to find yourself going through phases of having more time, then less, then more. This is natural! If your weight starts to slip a little, don’t worry about it. You can change your diet, cook a few vegetables up with a bit of chicken (or your vegetarian equivalent) and you’re sorted – healthy meal right there.

I want it to be understood that I’m not advocating letting yourself go, that would be foolish, I’m simply stating that there are so many more dimensions to a person than their weight. Learn to put up with a bit of jiggle from time to time! Your diet may go a little off track, your plans may overwhelm you a little, life may simply get in the way as it so often does regarding any issue.

What matters is that you realise that a little jiggle here and there isn’t the end of the world in the least.


New idea

As I’m hoping to get back into writing posts once more, I had an idea for something that could be very interesting! I may begin writing ideas and theories based on my university studies – Management and Business

I have always loved the idea of sharing thoughts about the subject but haven’t had as much time as I’d like until now. If anybody has any thoughts on this then please feel free to share! I will also of course, be publishing non-academic posts as I do find a great pleasure in that. This is just an idea for something that could maybe help everybody involved.

I’ll keep you updated, but thank you kindly in advance.

In the past few years, since I have been from around the age of 16 – pregnancies amongst people I know have become extremely common. People I never thought would even want to have children, people who have always wanted children and people who have never held an opinion on the matter have all seemed to fall pregnant. Do people really understand the responsibility that goes with having a baby?

People understand the basic physical needs of a child pretty easily as we’re all trained to a small degree without really knowing it, through the use of observation and even playing with dolls at a young age. I’ve heard an absolutely insane range of reasons as to why people treat their children in the way they do, and this is why I believe there should be a lot more support for the soon-to-be mother – ideally for the father too but we’ll take baby steps! (I’m sorry, that pun was just waiting to be used)

I have never believed that anybody I know is a truly unfit parent – though unfit parents certainly exist. I simply believe that the parents I know lack enough education on the matter.

One thing I have heard over and over again is people saying things such as “I can’t believe how quickly I was left alone with my child” and “What do I do now?”. This, in my opinion of course, isn’t pleasant for anybody involved. I would love to see a society in which we are at least a little more prepared for the next 18 years of raising a child.
