Dearest lovely readers,
As 2021 gradually closed so much has happened. I am now ready to return to the blogosphere, the posts will probably be one every two weeks as I gradually return to the world.
First I’d like to discuss a little of the bad things that happened to me.
Since posting, my heart broke twice. I lost both of my guinea pig companions, first Blossom in September which was long and drawn out. Brenda the week of my birthday in December which happened so suddenly. Losing Brenda shuck me back a few steps in recovery, I was not ready. I also have become more estranged with my biological father through his actions – I’m not as surprised as it happened. He lives around 7 miles away and I haven’t seen him in over a year and I don’t see it changing anytime soon.
However, despite all this drama, and upheaval much good came out of the year.
I saw my beautiful sister finally become a bride, and a great one at that. It was probably occasion of the year for me, she was radiant and seeing her so happy was truly wonderful and so pure.
I have found new volunteer work as a Recovery Coach which I’m just starting, it’s all very exciting!
I have decided to change my last name. Names are a funny thing, it’s essentially a sound that we recognise as “us”. And I’d like to explore the phenomenon in a future post. But my surname does not feel like my identity anymore so will be taking a surname in honour of my stepfather.
I have renewed my sense of self, finally love my body, have a determination to move out and find work later in the year. Once. My health problems have been sorted which I’m currently actively trying to do. Because we can’t stay stuck forever.
Mental health services are currently lagging but I’m trying my best to work with them.
So much is happening and to ensure I dedicate time to exploring all things well-being; here is a draft schedule of the topics to come:
Grief and well-being
Why change can be good
Name and identity
The concept of self-love and body positivity
Spirituality and well-being
I hope these topics sound interesting, if there is anything you wish for me to cover, comment or message me on the contact form.
I am really excited about what 2022 has to offer and I hope you are too.
Let me know how you’ve been.
