Good day all!
We did yay!! 31 days of blogging done woop!
I have thoroughly enjoyed it but I am really looking forward to a day off tomorrow… Well sort of day off lol!
When I reflect back on the last month I realise how many tough subjects I gave myself.
At the time it didn’t even occur to me. But if I have helped just one person during this process I will be a happy lady.
I am not going to go all serious today, I am going to reflect back on important points…and throw in some good Friday feelings too!
My first tough subject was about depression ( read here ) I wanted to discuss this due to the fact that there have been a lot of stories of people taking their lives whilst suffering from depression, as they feel they have nowhere to turn. I want people to know they are not alone.
Bullying came next ( read here ) as someone who has suffered at the mouths of bullies I think it needs to stop. Nowadays bullying is rife in our schools, on the internet, in homes, from strangers. I am going to become an advocate for anti bullying. People should not be in fear when they leave their homes. Children shouldn’t fear stepping through the school gate. It must be stopped.
One of my favourite posts from this month was about inner beauty ( read here ) this is something that I firmly believe in. Beauty is not just on the outside. It is skin deep, in your soul. When you feel beautiful inside it radiates off you like sunshine.
What I find interesting about these subjects is that they are surrounded by negative stigma.
Unless you have suffered from one or more of these issues its hard to fully understand them.
When it comes to self harm, it is one of the most secret subjects. People don’t discuss it and don’t care to.
People find it hard to understand why someone would do it.
They think the intention is to end your life
But this is not the case.
In a way it is like a release.
What I intended with this 31 day challenge, was to raise awareness of issues that I feel are worthy and important.
I hope that through this I have helped at least one person, either with their own hardship or to understand what someone close to them is going through.
I hope that I haven’t offended anyone with my posts… Thats why I mixed it up a bit ☺
I hope that I brought out a note of positivity and hope within my writing.
Because trust me things get better.
We are all strong
We are all brave
We are all awesome
I have also discovered a bit more ‘me love’ this month.
I have struggled deeply with this for years.
Just this week a bit of original Charlotte came out…I stood in my kitchen doing dishes and dancing!
Haven’t done that for years..,felt really good!
Let’s be ourselves shall we.
Let’s not be afraid of what anyone thinks.
Dance like nobodies watching
Sing at the top of your lungs
Buy those bright coloured trousers…go on!
Dye your hair..cut your hair..ooh but don’t go crazy
Do what makes you feel good!
Now for my friday feeling
I love a good cheerful, inspirational quote.
So what better way to showcase that but in your wall?!
I love all of these, they all speak to my personality.
Some of them are really on the nose with regards the inner workings of my scatterbrain ☺
Which would you choose?
I have also discovered the joys of sharpie mugs! I am so making one of these ☺ with my own quote… Something like
‘ssh there is a chance this is wine’
Alrighty then guys,
I had a blast with this and can’t wait for next year!
You are wonderful
You may be different, quirky or a little weird
But you are amazing because you are you.
So let’s stick together as women, survivors, mothers and advocates of kindness.
Love each other
Treat people as you want to be treated.
Be kind and don’t rewind
As the song goes ‘the past is in the past, let it go’
Love you all ☺
