Just a thought… Mon, 05 Dec 2016 16:46:07 +0000 Just a thought…

In such a fast-paced world where things are constantly changing, it’s difficult to stop and think. Unfortunately, young people are the biggest victims of this issue and many face consequences in their lives due to poorly thought-out decisions. By definition, thinking is the ‘process of considering or reasoning about something’. Therefore, thinking means going through the pros and cons of the decision about to be made, as well as asking ourselves why we’re making that particular decision. It may sound long-winded, but if you take a moment just to think, you’ll have surprising results. By thinking, you are capable of making better decisions in your life, and you can find practical and successful ways to solve your problems. However, if you continuously do things on a whim, without any thought, you’ll find yourself with a lot of bad and preventable experiences.


Many people think that money, popularity and even love are people’s greatest assets. However, they couldn’t be more wrong. Your greatest asset is your mind. Your mind controls everything you do, as well as what you say. It’s like a game console – your mind is the game console and you’re the player. Whether you win or lose is up to you. When you fill your mind with positive thoughts, it changes your whole outlook on your life in a good way. As well as this, it boosts your self-confidence. You’re more likely to be successful in your career, and it will drastically lower your stress levels. These are just a few of the many advantages you will have when you think positively. No matter who you are, where you are in your life, young or old, the moment you start to see the good in everything and take control of your mind, it is guaranteed that your life will change.

‘Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.’ Galatians 6:7

The myth of metabolism Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:51:48 +0000 The myth of metabolism

“You’re so lucky, you can eat whatever you want and not put weight on!” This is one of the many comments I receive about my weight and my ability to eat more than expected. Yes, I do have a fast metabolism. Yes, I can eat whatever I want and not worry too much about how it may affect my body. But I choose not to. Not because I’m weird or anything, but because I know that one day, my metabolism won’t be as fast as it used to be. I won’t be able to gulp down a loaf of bread in a day and wake up easily. I won’t be able to have a family-sized bag of Walker Sensations as a snack and proceed to have dinner later on without effect. And because I’m aware of this fact, I try to resist some of the unhealthy yumminess that I see on a daily basis. As I get older, my appreciation and respect for my metabolism has grown, which is why I intend to look after it.


You’re young and your body is still going through the process of development, so appreciate it and treat it right. Recognise that you have an advantage and enjoy it; however, don’t push your body’s limit. Instead, embrace this advantage and have a well-balanced diet. Which means no £1 chicken and chips every day after school. Maybe only twice a month. Look after your health earlier and it will become easier in your later years. Trust me.

And since we’re talking about appreciation, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, appreciate what you do have in life. Often, many of us focus on what we don’t have and miss many opportunities because of that. So instead of comparing yourself to people, think about the great things you have in your life, whether it is your health or the people in your life. We all have something to appreciate and be thankful for.

I am thankful for my metabolism, anyone care to agree?

The next Mark Zuckerberg? Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:39:08 +0000 The next Mark Zuckerberg?

In today’s society, where so many young people have ‘big’ dreams, whether it’s to become the next big vlogger or entrepreneur, the world is full of creativity and opportunity. However, as much as we love to dream, we seem to forget that in order to achieve that dream, we need to do something about it. This means getting off of the sofa and turning off our Netflix accounts and going outside to actually do something. Now I know what you’re thinking, ‘Well obviously I knew that, I’m not stupid’. I’m not saying you’re stupid, but I am asking you to think seriously about whether you’ve actually done anything to take you a step closer to your dream.


For example, you want to create a website on fashion and eventually own a business and have your own fashion brand. Of course, it would be amazing if this just happened magically, but that’s not the way it works. You have to take the necessary steps to make this happen. It takes hard work and dedication to get to this level of success. Firstly, you would need to learn how to create the website, decide on your content, build up followers, create clothing pieces, etc. You get my gist. The point is: whether you want to be a director, writer or anything in this world, you need to realise that it won’t happen overnight. In fact, it will take a very long time, but with perseverance, hard work and goals you will most definitely make it. It’s all about taking that first step and continuing until you achieve your goal. You’ll never achieve anything if you keep doing the same thing. It’s about stepping out of your comfort zone. So stop being so comfortable!

It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can do it! Mark Zuckerberg started his career from one idea inside his college room. Now, at the age of 32, he is worth $49 billion and is one of the richest people on the planet. Kiowa Kavovit was only six years old when she pitched her business idea on the popular TV show Shark Tank and won the $100,000 investment. She now has a business named Boo Goo, which provides medical bandages in the form of paint for the human skin.

Now what’s your excuse?

Excuse me while I go and plan for world domination…

They come in singles Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:17:36 +0000 They come in singles

In a society where people have been in relationships from a very young age, it seems imperative that we should all be in or have experienced being in various relationships

theycomeinsinglesmainthroughout our lives. Unfortunately, being young and single has been stigmatised as something of an abnormality. And the pressure to be in a relationship just to be able to say, “I have a boyfriend/girlfriend” has become a common theme.

Now, let’s look at this from a different perspective and try to see the positive. I’m no feminist; however, I do believe that being single can be an empowering part of us instead of a detriment to our identities. Here are some cool advantages to being single:

  • You can travel whenever you want
  • You can work on improving yourself as well as exploring your passions without pressure or restriction from your other half
  • You can invest in your career. For example, if you are asked to work abroad, it will be harder to relocate when in a relationship
  • You can do whatever you like
  • You can save large amounts of money,g. no date nights
  • You don’t need to cooperate with your other half when deciding which film to watch
  • Become more independent. You’ll rely on yourself and yourself only, which will make you a stronger person in general.

I can go on and on about the advantages; however, there isn’t enough space on the page so…

Overall, being single can be one of the greatest periods of your life. You can devote this time to yourself and discover who you are and what you want. You can do the most ambitious and amazing things that you never thought were possible. You can get to know yourself as an individual. And let’s be honest, if you don’t know who you are and what you stand for, then going into a relationship is the worst thing you can do to yourself. Single life can either be the biggest stress of your life or the biggest achievement. The choice is yours.

“Don’t let society fool you into believing that if you don’t have a girlfriend or boyfriend then you’re destined for a life of misery. The Dalai Lama has been single for the last 80 years and he is one of the happiest people on earth. Stop searching for happiness in places outside of yourself, and start finding it where it has always been: within you.” Author, Miya Yamanouchi
