Hi there! Glad you found me. Some of you may know that my life is no bed of roses but in amidst the tragedy there are truly beautiful moments. I've wanted to make the best of those moments for so long, and to help me I've decided to journey back and explore what makes me feel, think and behave the way I do. Hopefully I'll begin to understand more about me and begin to find more peace

This isn't a challenge blog but if you fancy joining me on my journaling journey, I'll leave a linky so you can post your thoughts.

Here's wishing you special moments in time

Heartbroken Metamorphosis

Had a bad day today, unable to get out of bed until mid afternoon but Liam came for a visit so I had to put the face on for him and that brought pleasure into my day. I also saw the shrink who's referred me for some intense therapy sessions so it looks as though I'm going to be here for a few weeks.

I know I have a lot of work to do to become the best I can be and stop this decent into very old coping behaviours, it's just that my heart hurts so very much for so many reasons.

Still I did manage a play with a pencil or two and my new distress minis.

Not sure wether this is finished or not yet, what do you think?

Now I wonder if they'll let me go AWOL for the craft extravaganza........?
Maybe I'll try to abscond to Samuel Taylors in Harrogate first!

I have to echo Linda's words and say that I don't know the awful place you have found yourself in either but I count myself very lucky for that. It does sound as though you are getting the very best of help to fight your way through together with lots of love and support from your family and friends. Be gentle with yourself and take one day at a time. In the meantime you are certainly enriching our days with your beautiful journal work.
