DAYS LIKE THESE


Do you have days like these? You know the one's I mean right? Where everything is a bit AAAARrrR.  It seems to be a running theme of late, if it's not been one thing it's another. So the first thing to have dropped off my radar has been this little corner of the internet, slightly neglected and unloved. Rather than write negative posts and throwing myself a good old pity party, I have chosen to revel in the action alone off screen...and before you think 'oh here it is, pity party ahoy!' this is not my intention, instead it is more a celebration of strength in the face of adversity.  

In the last three years I have had my fair share of bad luck in terms of my mental and physical health, and just when I thought 'that's it right? Enough's enough', it seems there is always a bit more crap to wade through. But that is life, and it is not what hand you are dealt, but how you deal with it that counts.

So even when pushed to my limit, I am proud to still find my inner strength alive and kicking, keeping me going, that fire in my belly. For all the negative things I can say about myself, the one thing I can't deny is this:

I AM STRONG

So you might be thinking well this all sound a bit mental and perhaps even what on earth is going on? but in truth it is just life that is happening, with all the ups and downs it brings, and no matter how I deal with the bumps in the road, I know I will deal with them and I will be fine...

because we all have days like these.

  7. There is nothing wrong with having off days but the key is to try and overcome them so that they don't take over you.
