so f*kn PROUD
how fortunate am I?
o0o With each day that passes, I am more and more glad that I left work when I did. I am also very very aware of how incredibly fortunate I was, to be in the position of having the support (in all ways) from My Love, that meant I was able to have […]
o0o When you’re feeling a bit flat, one of the very best therapies is to get outside. If you can plant something and immerse your hands in the dirt, it makes the experience that much better for you!! There has been so much evidence around the massive improvements in mental health for those […]
o0o So here I am – officially over 3 months unemployed!! Its time for a bit more of an in-depth run-down of what Life has been like for me for the last three months – so I’m going to break it down into sections to help me arrange my thoughts a little better… You […]
o0o Its six weeks since I last posted. Six weeks since the event that changed my dear friends Life forever – in ways that I can barely begin to imagine. Its also 6 weeks in which my Life has changed – because of the hideous heartbreak my friend has had to endure… Only an […]
o0o Again – it feels like the Universe is throwing me yet another lesson – because no matter how many it has thrown me in the last couple of years – I keep pushing the lessons to the side – and blindly bumbling on – seemingly oblivious to what is trying to be taught to […]
o0o I feel so at odds of late. In the quiet times when I am by myself, and I am able to spend time being introspective – I can see that I am in a season of a very negative headspace – and have been unable to shift it… I teeter between feelings of […]
o0o I broke. Plain and simple – i broke… This past fortnight – my mind just couldn’t keep itself together anymore, and i broke… I went to the Doctor back before we went to New Zealand, just for a general annual checkup; and when we were finishing up, I told him that there was […]
o0o There have been two books in my life, that have had a major effect on my Life. The first was “The Alchemist”, which I read in my very early 20s. Somehow – I realised years later – that ’The Alchemist” had given me a strength, faith, belief and trust in myself, that […]
o0o Its been a rough week, and in all honestly I am still not feeling thoroughly fabulous as I’m still getting over the whole dental debacle and the eventual outcome of same… Its a bit of a dismal day here today which isn’t helping my mood any, and I think i took on a […]
glad you asked!
Smoking you ask? Are you still smoking? Wellllll – I’m glad you asked!! It’s a month in (well, 4 weeks lol) – in case you’ve been keeping track – and still she doesn’t smoke! That’s right folks. I’m a month clean!! But what I’m even more incredibly proud and grateful for – is […]
Ready to cheer me on? I told you a week or two ago in the smoking gun post, that I was going to do it – and now here I am!! As of last night – I am a non-smoker. A former smoker, an ex-smoker – call it what you will. But as […]
you’re not a burden
. The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unlovable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy…It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, […]
: strength :
Strength doesn’t come from what you can do; it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t do. When you are at your lowest point, you are open to the greatest positive change. Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the strength to deal with them. The strongest people are […]
i did it again!
. It was a bit of a shit ending to 2017 for me… I somehow managed to put my back out again – whilst getting up from the toilet. How does that even happen!?!? I spent that day being pretty damn teary and miserable – I didn’t feel like I could go through another […]
. My Physio relocated to one of the southern states back in early October. Before she left – she arranged for another physio in the same practice to take over my care, as I had seen this other physio a few times (when my usual wasn’t available) and she knew my full history – […]
