Submission is a journey

Self Awareness

A definition online which I find helpful: Self-awareness involves being aware of different aspects of the self including traits, behaviors, and feelings. Essentially, it is a psychological state in which oneself becomes the focus of attention. ( Once upon a time, I would say that my focus upon myself and my own feelings would only happen… Continue reading Self Awareness

Self image

Being part of an online community with Sir, most definitely called my own self image and self awareness into question over the years. Especially in the early days when I had a very low self esteem and was struggling to see myself the way Sir does. There came a time (some years ago now) when… Continue reading Self image

The Longest Trial so far

Dear friends and followers, It has been a while since I last posted and wanted to drop you a quick update. These past few months has been one of the longest trials for myself personally and for Sir and I. We are nearing 9mths since Sir’s accident back in September 2020 and still waiting on… Continue reading The Longest Trial so far

Music Therapy

These have been some of the longest days, weeks and months of my journey so far! Would you believe it is only 2 months since disaster struck and Sir’s leg was so badly broken? For me, it feels so much longer!! There have been so many ups and downs. Mixed emotions a lot of the… Continue reading Music Therapy

Unfortunately, Our long awaited reunion did not go as planned for either of Us due to unforeseen circumstances, leaving Us both painfully disappointed in more ways than one and Sir in substantially more pain than I. Having to leave Sir and return home was one of the most heart wrenching departures this time around. Without… Continue reading Summer visit


Finally, We have hit what I like to term the ‘single figures countdown’ !! 😁 Only a matter of days before I am on my way to visit Sir 9 days to go 😛 The days have dragged on, the months have been looooong and We are finally able to get some much needed time… Continue reading Anticipation

Summer Nights

For all the upheaval that Covid-19 has caused, the frustration is palpable! Not only are the summer holidays upon us, but there’s the added family commitments that mean even though travel is now possible, I am still unable to get out to France and spend time with Sir! Communications are still limited due to the… Continue reading Summer Nights


absence noun the state of being away from a place or person Nothing quite defines absence like my current situation, where I am away from Sir and have been for some months due to the pandemic and additional hurdles such as the school summer holidays and the inability to visit, even though lock down has… Continue reading Absence

Monsters, part II

Very few people dare to admit that we do actually live with monsters on a daily basis. Be that from inner fears, worries and doubts. Personal circumstances always have both positive and negative sides, as well as with every action there is always a reaction. Much like the teachings of Tao Te Ching, by Laozi,… Continue reading Monsters, part II
