    Growing Pains

    Back in the day,

    We used to play outside till dawn

    Now, we're just another government pawn

    Back in the day,

    We used to live, laugh & grow

    Now, we are forced to work our asses off bro

    What is this shit? (mind my language)

    Death is a trap to try and get us to submit?

    As kids, we couldn't wait to be adults

    Now, I reflect and I am like that was truly nuts!

    The days when we could cry and be comforted

    Childhood turned to adulthood and those days plummeted

    Now, we're struggling to make ends meet, Who would have thought, childhood was only a treat

    But it's life,

    So put away that knife

    It is what it is -

    God is good, all is his

    Better days are ahead

    So, go and continue to chase that bread!

    Today is a step forward

    Compared to how I felt yesterday, today has been a godsend.

    I’ve been proactive and driven to move on from my negative experiences the other night, and I’ve found myself looking positively towards the future.

    I’m planning things like day trips away and social events not involving alcohol, as well as things that I can enjoy that help with my mental health.

    Today I applied to be a Mental Health First Aider at work and I’m reaching out to UK mental health charities to see if I can put my writing skills to the test. I’m also engrossed in my own mental health website which is giving me comfort in it self.

    It’s amazing how one day could be bad and another good. I just need to stay focused and continue to keep my head above water.

    My mental health is getting better after a difficult few weeks!

    It's been a couple of weeks since I last had a depressive episode and I can honestly say that I'm beginning to feel like my old self.

    I tried cutting out alcohol but found this too much of a challenge due to my social lifestyle - but I have learned to reduce my alcohol intake so it's more sociable than the constant partying I was doing before.

    I've also cut out negative energies from my life - sometimes it doesn't matter how much you may like a person, if they're not being a positive influence in your life, you have to let go for your own wellbeing.

    When I'm not working, sleeping, or spending time with friends, I write instead. I started my own mental health blog recently which helps - it gives me the chance to explore my own mental health problems while (hopefully) inspiring others about theirs.

    At the weekend I had some sad news about the passing of a friend, but despite that bad news, I have managed to continue with life and not let my feelings get in the way.

    Things aren't perfect but that's okay! I'm feeling better about my mental health and that's a great start.

    Wonderful Saturday

    #PositiveVibes #ChronicPain #chronic illnesses#Bipolar #osteo and psoriatic arthritis#CheckInWithMe #MightyMinute #Fibromyalgia
    Spent the day with my oldest brother traveling up the gorge in Oregon to a huge lavender field. Visited their gift shop n bought some linen spray for my pillow at night with the hope the lavenders healing n calming qualities will aid in my sleep.
    I got a great view of My. Good in the distance. Beautiful sights we have here in Oregon.
    The day was so special because I haven't driven for many years now, so this kind of day is out of reach for me. This is the same brother that shares time with me going to the river.
    I can't thank him enough!
    If other mightiest have a special someone, let's. hear it!
