Good day all!
As we come to the end of the write31days challenge, I thought I would reflect on the subjects that I have written about…and maybe sneak some other things in!
When I wrote the title for today I had this image of Britney humming Woody’s roundup to herself ( if you weren’t before you are now lol!)
So, when I started this challenge I thought 31 days in one subject can’t be difficult to do surely…boy was I ever wrong!
I sort of mixed tough subjects with a bit of upbeat things.
I have talked depression, self esteem, bullying, self harm and beauty within.
All these subjects are vastly important and many not discussed.
I remember I wrote I piece on depression being an illness the day before Robin Williams sadly lost the battle with his darkness. (read it here)
My hope in sharing them was that in some way maybe I could help someone else, sometimes words can be powerful.
We tend to forget how much a few words can calm someone’s soul.
I have come to the realisation that I am not defined by my struggles. There is more to me than people think.
Imagine an iceberg, you only see a small part above water but look below the surface and you discover there is more to it than meets the eye ☺
I never considered myself brave before, but I guess sharing parts of my story makes me somewhat so.
I am not one for bigging myself up so to speak.
I get embarrassed in the face of any form of praise.
I guess you could call humility, I call it eek!! Cheeks the colour of my hair lol!
And do you know what I am proud of who I am.
During September I found so many wonderful people that I have things in common with and I am so grateful for them. I found them at a time in my life when I need them.
Check them out – Helen Britney Lizelle Bess
I am ever so thankful for their kindness, and the joy they bring people through their words.
I like this quote, its lovely honest wording warms my heart.
Speaking of hair, I booked that hair appointment… And faced my first mini fear..10th november ☺
I have picked 4 styles…tell me what you think! Oh don’t worry I am not changing the colour ☺
I am torn between the top 2 to be honest ☺
I think I am trying to achieve one thing through my words, and that is to help anyone to realise they are all beautiful. Unique is a word I like to use.
I think people are so often pulled down by the hurtful words of others that they start to believe the fiction that people weave.
Like I said before words are powerful.
Just a few can etch into your heart, and can never be erased.
But if we aim to love who we are despite our flaws, then it will radiate from us like sunbeams.
People will see our happiness and feed off it.
Happiness is infectious
A smile goes a long way.
Watch how it lights your way ☺
Have a great weekend
