Over the past 4 years my Blog and I have been great friends. Writing about my experiences really helps me to make sense of my bouts of depression and keeps me connected with the outside world when I don’t physically step outside of my front door. I have made some lovely friends on here so “Thank you Poppyposts”:)
I feel guilty now because I have a new life. A new life which has taken some time to reach but they say that everything comes to those who wait and put simply, I haven’t felt so well mentally for as long as I can remember.
I have been very busy with my new job, my new puppy and my new-found positivity but that’s no excuse to abandon my Blog for almost 3 months! So I am back but with a different focus. How to stay well and what works for me. I think I have found a balance and with a few tweaks 2015 could be the year when I finish up a much healthier person physically, mentally and emotionally. I can look forward to that I’m sure.
I know that I am incredibly lucky to have a hugely supportive family, group of friends and an understanding employer but I have also been brave enough to take my opportunities as they have presented themselves.
The saying goes;
I do feel that I have finally been released to live my life as I chose. How brave am I?
I was thinking about you, yesterday, and hoping all was well with you. I’m so happy to know you’re doing well! YAY!
Thanks Judy 🙂 I still have to manage my activity but working from home has had a huge impact on my stress and energy levels to the good. Jasper the puppy is full of energy and hard work sometimes but he’s so cute!
