Step a side Bridget Jones

So Saturday night just as I was going to bed, I was made aware of something on social media, that stabbed at my heart (it felt like my heart ripped in two) – after a few hours of tears, while talking though with my hubby (my rock) I finally fell asleep.

So why am I telling you this???

Life is a rollercoaster of emotions – with some years feeling like there’s more downs than ups, but quite often we are not in control of the down bits, we are only in control of the decision not to stay down. To pick ourselves up and keep climbing one step at a time.

The reward – the view at the top, the inner satisfaction of reaching the top, knowing our heart is strong and getting stronger every day and the memories we make on the way

So if you’ve had a tough day yesterday or any other day, pick yourself up, put on your big girl pants (Bridget Jones has nothing on me) and take one step forward

For me that meant a double cleanse and facial massage (to wash away the salty drying tears and soothe my tingling skin), styled my hair (not a daily a habit when not leaving the house), applied my makeup (even hubby was shocked) and reaching out and connecting with people I love and miss.

Was it easy? No, def not the zoom meeting on camera but did it help? Absolutely because I made a step forward in deciding who and what I let into my life and ultimately my future.

Keeping going, you can do this.

Mum, wife, daughter & friend. I`ve overcome child abuse, eating disorders and will always be a mental health warrior. Im also married to an amazing man, who suffered a emotional breakdown 5 years ago which resulted in social anxiety disorder (a battle he is beginning to win). I also have an amazing beautiful teen daughter who has high function autism. Mental health affects so many of us and manifests itself differently in each of us as we are all unique. Writing my thoughts down and practising self care every day has been my saving grace I hope with time, this blog will help anyone who needs support and allows me an outlet when my life becomes overwhelming. Feel free to comment anytime, as its important we all learn to share what we are dealing with and our misguided thinking. xoxo
