I’m proud of myself today!

I did good today. I walked into the town centre with my sister and my nephew, AND walked back, too! Normally, I can only make it one way, so I’m super proud of myself. (Altogether it’s just under 3 miles).

AND, not only did I meet my daily step goal of 6,000… I also walked a further 3,096! I feel so good for it. I am so determined to lose this weight. I need to. I’m going to. I’ve got this! 💪

I feel good today!

I’m in a good mood today! This morning while at the pharmacy collecting my painkillers, I did my good deed for the day - a man was trying to buy some cough syrup for his partner, who has a chest infection, but he didn’t have enough. I paid for it myself and refused to let him give me what money he had. Instead, I said he should spend it on her favourite chocolate.

I’ve had a lovely relaxing bath, which always exhausts me but I feel alright so far.

AND, I’ve made a nice start on the second chapter of what I hope to one day be my debut novel. 1,554 words so far today!

Now I’m about to sit down and have some peanut butter on toast. Lovely-jubbly!

Do you ever want to feel like a princess or a prince?

Some days are harder than others. Sometimes you need someone to just reach out and help you to feel like the best version of you!

Tuesday my husband sent me off to go get my hair trimmed, and allowed me to spend a little extra than usual. It was a beautiful day in which I felt like a princess.

Feeling cute!

Yesterday I had posted about how I felt like hell and wanted to help but couldn't. Then I had gone out and danced all weird and whatnot. Today I dressed up. I went out for a walk with my mom and her (asshole) boyfriend. I decided that today was the day because I was going out anyway!

Feeling good ( - about - ) today 🖤

Today I made myself a good breakfast (french toast), went walking about my neighborhood for about an hour, showered, and changed. I got a new wig yesterday and I love it! I decided to wear it today with a little gold eye shadow, and I feel so pretty! I haven't felt this pretty since I was in 8th grade and I had my first boyfriend, and he told me he loved me. I have decided that days like this only come around so often and I am going to enjoy it while I can. I have a plan to do a virtual meet up with some friends and then make homemade gummy bears! I hope that tomorrow can be as good as today! Oh! And I wanted to add some fun to each day, so I glued a googly eye to the middle of my glasses to make me laugh everyday, along with...my wig glows in the dark!!!🥰🖤😁😋🤩 #Happyday #Feelinggood #GoodDay

What I really love #Feelinggood

I love coming home after a heavy shift and I find that pair of sparkling eyes waiting for me.


good day

Today has been a good day for me. I work as a yard duty. I suffer from depression and anxiety. well today at work I'm watching kindergarteners at their recess. I was feeling my depression and anxiety start to come and I was getting stuck in my head when a kindergartener comes up to me and say "you look sad, I want you to be happy because you are my favorite and I love your smile" he gave me a big hug and went off to play with his friends. it was the cutest thing that has happened to me since i started working as a yard duty. that little kid made my depression and anxiety go away. this is why I want to be a teacher. #Depression #Anxiety #Feelinggood

Happy New Year!!!!

This has been a rough final year to a wonderful yet also heartbreaking decade. I lost my grandma in 2012. My mom left in 2014. I met my husband in 2010 and have been together since 2011. The start to 2010 brought the onset of my strange and unexplainable symptoms (which later ended up being to to #InterstitialCystitis), those which caused me to struggle for a while. I missed work, had no money and couldn’t pay any bills, didn’t sleep, couldn’t travel or leave my house on my worst days. However, in this struggle came ways to adapt. I had gotten used to it, found ways to keep flare ups at bay. I felt healthy for a while.
I got engaged in 2015, married in 2016, and became a mother in 2017. Despite having one of the greatest moments of my life occur in 2017, that was also when the swelling began. The very swelling that ended up being a Lyme infection, which was undiagnosed for nearly 7 months. That is where my journey with persistent #LymeDisease began. But I’m no stranger to health complications and utmost physical discomfort and hiding it from everyone around me as best as I could. I had already coped with #InterstitialCystitis unknowingly for nearly a decade. I realize I am #strong . I will make it. But tonight, I am not sick. I am not uncomfortable and I am not feeling sad. Tonight, I hope for the best as we bring in a new year and new decade. I rejoice because I have a wonderful child to motivate me . It is my wish to everyone who reads this that you have much luck , health, love, and happiness in the coming year. #happy2020 #strength #Feelinggood
