Mental Health Awareness Week: Focus on Anxiety – Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway? | Mental Health Linky

Source Mental Health Awareness Although the first one to have a laugh and a joke, I have suffered from anxiety most of my life to some extent.  Anxiety can be organic and have no roots in life events, but for me it started in senior school where I was bullied to the point I did not want to live anymore. A previously loud and precocious child, I turned into an introverted and shy teen, who would look at the floor as she walked and hunch over.  Still, I had a raw vulnerability that is still with me to this day, […]

Sharing the love: live and let live – an end to discrimination and hatred – one person at a time #motivationalmonday

Happy Monday lovelies!  For our last Monday in February – our month to show and share our love, I really want to go a little further afield.  Outside the home, outside our country and across the globe.  Don’t stop reading just yet – I’m not proposing a movement or a mass love in, just a little tolerance. Here’s the good news: peoples attitudes to diversity are slowly changing.  Whether you’re championing your own cause, such as disability or special needs, or another more personal to yourself, it is a rare person that doesn’t have a ’cause’ that’s close to their […]

Listening to my body and asking for help – being kind to me #motivationalmonday

Hey guys – happy Monday!  I’ve been a little under the weather lately – so apologies for the late post.  A burst of productivity last week meant that I was able to get some blogging done and schedule some posts during the week, but I’ve now caught up with myself.  I know in previous posts I have mentioned tests etc going on at the moment.  They are, more than anything because I have no idea what is going on with my body, so the professionals have been sent in, so to speak.  The problem with having several co-morbid conditions (conditions […]

New Years Inspiration – What Inspires me as we go into 2014

As our #1 challenge in the 2014 blogger challenge, I cannot think of a more appropriate, or a less demanding blog post.  I kind of feel like a cheat, but the answers are so easy. At the ripe old age of 31 (I know that’s no age, but I’ve lived alot of life, most of it less than ideal), I’ve actually began to tap into into the hook and eye of grace.  That feeling you get when everything is okay, not that everything will be okay if you just; lose 10lb’s, get a better job, promotion, raise.  If you move […]

OOTD: Long cream sweater, leggings and boots – wheelchair wearable winter

So far in my blog, I’ve not focused to much on my primary passion – wheelchair fashion!  There are some great shops and sites that make clothing that is specially cut and adapted for the wheelchair user, but as yet I haven’t been flush enough to order.  I would absolutely love to try them out, but for now, I tend to plump for adapting and selecting clothing available on the high street, making the shapes, styles and cuts work for me. This outfit is very basic, but I find many of the best outfits are.  It’s how you style them […]
