Bronwen Samantha

I love writing and for as long as I can remember I’ve written about every detail of my life and yet, I have no idea how to even begin to write content for my ‘about’ page.

I guess I’ll start at the beginning…

This blog began because I wrote a diary entry about being scared and excited all at the same time. I ‘d kept a diary all my life, but this entry felt different. I had recently been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and broken up with a boyfriend (yes, really) and I felt like I was at a bit of a crossroads. I told one of my best friends that I was thinking of sharing the diary entry as a blog post and when she read it, she gave me the thumbs up. We immediately set to work coming up with a name for the blog which would follow me as I went on a mission to ‘find Bronwen’. The blog has simply evolved and grown with me since then.

I’m a twenty-something year old over-thinker and a worrier-warrior. I love to write, to sing and to eat good food. If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life, I’d choose a roast dinner. My tipple of choice is a red wine in the winter and a gin and tonic in the summer. Although honestly? A good cup of tea will usually do.

I’ve written a lot of content I know. This website is quickly becoming a bit of a ‘story of my life’ and I know it won’t all be of interest to everyone. Read chronologically or dip in and out as you please. My only hope is that you’ll stumble across something relatable or find comfort in something and I’ll have helped brighten today for you in some small way.

Anything else you’d like to know? Drop me a message or comment on a post. I’d love to hear from you!

    It’s a beautiful, frosty, sunny morning, I have the day off work and I hadn’t factored writing into the plan for the day, but I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that with some chill time on my hands, writing is what I feel like doing. I was going to get up early and head out … Continue reading It’s never too late for new resolutions
  • Much ado about nothing
    I’ve been feeling melancholy and I can’t really put my finger on why. This bit between Christmas and New Year is always a funny one. This year it feels weirder than ever. Over the long weekend I felt like I actually switched off from work for the first time in forever. With the lines having … Continue reading Much ado about nothing
  • Early Days
    My first day alone at the flat, I felt poorly all day. Whilst I’d usually be able to suss out whether it was in my head or not, this time I really wasn’t sure. People don’t talk enough about the physical symptoms that come with stress and anxiety. I know my body well enough now … Continue reading Early Days
