Feels like taper madness… what happens when runners don’t run

A long period of not running is a bit like a prolonged taper, it does weird things to your mind. When the running stops, that running-shaped bit of our lives becomes a void where there be dragons and monsters to work wyrd magick in our heads. When we taper, we have to trust the space of not running and it’s often when we get a deeper understanding of running. Not running because of an injury brings a similar void. Continue reading

Letter to a Young Essayist

But more students by far, even those who converse copiously and are in fact the talking scourge of their dorms, have trouble getting words on paper. I have often wondered why people who give you so sprightly a conversational account of their thinking balk at putting prose on paper. It seems to be that there is a kind of reverse gatekeeper, a St. Peter of the Writing Threshold, who makes sure that nothing gets out that isn’t righteously stiff and properly dead Continue reading

embraceable you: learning to love yourself and other stories of self esteem and body confidence.As I write this post, the tabs open on my browser include Debenhams, (I have a concealer and a foundation in my basket to cover my acne scars) ASOS (Ready to check out with Spanx and a push-up bra to hide the five-seven pounds I’ve put on since last summer) and an article on how to lose weight from the stomach area. That’s right. This same individual, with a physical confidence level paraphrased by a dubious internet history, is going to talk to you today about being happy with what you have.Frankly, anyone who told you they woke up one morning, read an inspirational quote (then reblogged it on Tumblr) and rode off into the sunset on a horse of abundant hope and promise for the future of their self-esteem was lying.When puberty hit and the boobs and butt carnival rolled into town, I can’t say I was thrilled. Whilst my friends were complaining about not being able to find a size 6 in the shops, at 17 years old I found myself catering to disproportionate ‘child-bearing’ hips, large thighs and a bit of a huge arse Continue reading

How To Be Confident (At Any Age and at Any Size) – Hems for Her

Earlier this week I asked for submissions for my FAQ page, and new reader-friend Mari commented that she’d like to see a post about building confidence. Self-esteem and confidence are two things very close to my heart- not only because I was a child, teen, and young adult with major self-esteem issues, but also because I work with teens and young adults just like me every day. I can’t remember exactly when I “became confident”, but I’m pretty sure I remember when I first lost confidence in myself.I was in fourth grade- I had terrible acne and worse teeth. I remember being picked on all the time about one or the other- neither of which I had any control over Continue reading
