World Mental Health Day

🎼I’m comin out, I want the world to know, gotta let it show….. I have a lifelong mental illness! 😁.
-Ta dah!!!! ✨

-Anti-climatic eh?!? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

-Or it should be!!!😐

……..

Stigma attached to mental health is ridiculous, shows ignorance, benefits no one and should be a thing of the long ago past. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ—‘

……..


We (everyone) need to work towards eradicating the negativity surrounding these β€˜invisible’ illnesses that are very much REAL illnesses. They exist. They cause more than mental symptoms. The physical symptoms associated can be just as life altering. 

…..
πŸ™‚Share your stories
πŸ™‚Talk to other people 

πŸ™‚Ask for help

πŸ™‚Don’t be afraid 

……..

Reaching out and opening up was the best thing I did. I am so fortunate to have support. 

I’ve been at the bottom and contemplated the end. I’ve been in the dark holes. My black room with the black clouds. I’ve felt & still feel at times worthless, useless, empty, numb & an outsider. 

If I can help, I will. I’ll listen, chat, try to be a friend. Just send me a message. Any time πŸ’š

Oct 1st

Today’s a bad day… my mental health is kicking me in the ass. Truly. πŸ€•
I need a good cry but it isn’t ready. πŸ˜”πŸ™

Today’s #selfcare …I got out of bed. Might read my book. πŸ“•πŸ“—πŸ“˜πŸ“™I miss my pups ❀️❀️🐢🐢❀️❀️ 

🌸🌸🌸

I think it’s important for us to share our good and bad mental health days. It’s the only way to lessen the stigma. It’s also important to reach out and let people know when your struggling. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š I hope your all having an ok day. Just remember to breathe. 

I made it out tonight. To sit on a bench and listen to the waves. So calming ☺️ blissful ❀️

The end of bootcampΒ 

So day 29 was a much needed rest day. I spent it at the beach

Day 30– the last day of the month…. 
My second introduction to Kenzie Brenna’s #Selflovebootcamp 🌸🌸🌸 I made it through the month minus one challenge I wasn’t quite ready for! Still an achievement. πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†

So the past month has definitely showed me a few things. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster for sure. πŸ˜‰ It’s improved my confidence a little. I would say I don’t ‘hate’ my body. I’m not in love, not yet. But I’m a little closer. ☺️ 


I know that we come in all shapes and sizes. A little cellulite or a lot. We all have Squish to squeeze. πŸ™Š We must all accept our current body and attempt to love the hell out of it! πŸ˜πŸ‘™πŸ˜

It’s been amazing to be a part of a small community so set on being supportive of one another. That’s perhaps been the best bit for me. The encouragement and support not just for our body positivity but for the support towards better mental health. πŸ’š

As women I think it’s how we should be all the time. I’m, I hope, more aware of others battles. The hardships we all face, how privileged we are by some things. I hope I continue to practice self care, not just on Sundays but everyday. 

I hope to work towards achieving some of my goals and maybe knocking one or two things off of my bucket list!

ps. I still love Vanilla ice cream, dogs and beaches πŸ˜‚β€οΈπŸΆπŸΆβ€οΈπŸ¦πŸ¦πŸ’šπŸ˜
