First time out properly all week and I’m anxious. Have butterflies and having to do deep breathing - in for 5 seconds and out for 5 seconds. This normally calms me quickly.
On way to Bedford for a course. I know I’ll be fine once I get in to it - it’s always like this the first time I’m back out in the world.
Have a lovely day everyone xx
Even when you feel like you're in a deep pit, nature will show you, that you are not alone and everything will be alright. I am grateful for the good friends in my life and for the valuable lessons, life's teaching me. We just need to remember that better days are coming.

This last week I listened to a podcast featuring Danielle walker from again all grain and she was asked the question “how does your health journey effect the way you look at faith”. Her answer brought me to tears and put words to my heart! She said, that her journey while not always easy allowed her to grow a compassion, an understanding, and compelling to help people experience health. She said that even though it’s been painful at times, the life and the fruitfulness that has come through it has been humbling.
Oh how I agree, I believe that our pain has purpose. That when we ask “where next” instead of “why me” we see our current circumstances in a much bigger more purpose filled light! ———————————————————————————
After long seasons of transition, after journeying through sickness, if it was all to help someone else, or maybe tables filled with people live intentionally and find the joy and health in life again-it was worth every single second.
Today I went out for lunch, with peace, ate with satisfaction and health enjoyed gathering and celebrated where I’m at in this journey. You are not alone, there’s fullness, theres ways to gather, there’s joy and health. I’m so glad you’re here, there’s a seat for you! ——————————————————————————-
A couple days ago my plans were tossed into the fires of reality, and sadly, they burned. I’m working on a new plan and I’m trying to choose joy as I do. “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
Thanks for taking this pic dad.
Tapi saya tidak kesepian
Karena saya punya
Saat kamu merasa, orang tak lagi memperdulikanmu... Tapi ingatlah Allah yang selalu peduli .
Saat kamu merasa sendiri... Hingga berfikir seolah tak ada lagi orang yang memperhatikanmu
Tapi ingatlah Allah yang selalu memperhatikanmu .
Saat kamu merasa sendiri... Hingga berfikir tak ada lagi orang yang mau mendengar ceritamu, keluhmu, kesahmu, & bahagiamu
Tapi ingatlah Allah yang akan selalu setia Mendengarmu kapanpun kamu mau .
Saat kamu merasa sendiri... Ingatlah selalu Allah
Selama diri mengingat-Nya dan hati yakin pada-Nya
Maka sepimu tiada
Maka sedihmu sirna .
Berharaplah selalu ada Allah! Maka Allah membalasmu dengan cara terbaiknya! Jadi benar! Kita tidak sendiri Allah bersama kita,,, JADI APA YANG KAMU TAKUTI,,,?
Pada-Mu aku berharap... Pada-Mu aku bersujud... Bimbinglah aku
Wow day 79 Cardio Core... give me all the sweat!
Is it weird to say that I’m actually sad that tomorrow’s the last day?!?
Are you ready to fall so much in love with a workout program that you’ll actually be sad when it comes to an end?

During my trip this week, I met a Mom whose young son feels alone and thinks he’s the only one who suffers with severe food allergies! Please comment below with #NotAlone so she’ll see how many children are in the similar situation and know that there’s support available! #foodallergy#EmmasSpecialTummy
•i haven't been on here in a while. and things have been really. off and on so-so for the last few weeks. it fluctuates between real real good, and real real bad.
•the relationship between my father and i has been increasingly getting better. which i am really happy about. but the relationship with my mother has been plummeting at an alarming rate. not much i can do about it.
•as for thoughts. my grandad has been stuck on my mind lately. a lot. and i feel like whenever i bring it up it's just annoying and old and yeah. and on top of this i haven't had many issues with hallucinations or visions or anything of that sort in a bit. so i have been anticipating that. ive been pretty anxious about it.. but i haven't said anything. and it's starting to kill me.
day 547 and so we have military parades and a military space force and even something called a ghost gun in the hands of an America hating person who wantonly inflicts trauma on children. The State sanctioned Fox News, continues to do an excellent job spinning it all. #vote#propaganda#lies#patriotism#oldglory#nofingertoday
"I remember, you know, you go to these parties on Saturday night and people would say, about 8:00 on Sunday morning 'Whoa, I have to go - I gotta get to church!' People would say, 'Why do you want to go to church, all those hypocrites?' And I say, 'Look, why do I want to stay here with all you hypocrites?' I never knew why going to church made you a hypocrite. They'd say because you go to church and you're all 'Holy, Holy, Holy' for two or three hours, and then you go home and sin. I'd say 'exactly!' For two or three hours you're doing pretty good!
Maybe the problem isn't that you go to church, maybe the problem is that you go home!
I never understood why going to church made you a hypocrite either, because nobody goes to church because they're perfect. If you've got it all together, you don't need to go. You can go jogging with all the other perfect people on Sunday morning
Every time you go to church, you're confessing again to yourself, to your family, to the people you pass on the way there, to the people who will greet you there, that you don't have it all together. And that you need their support. You need their direction. You need some accountability, you need some help." - Rich Mullins
Just want to say that it been a year since Chester bennington pass away, which was a suprise well more of a shock. A lot of ppl have die of depression or other mental order they going thorough. They might feel alone even when they have so many ppl around them. Some time their moments of weakness they feel more lonely. Some end up getting help with what ever it is they need help with but some dont because they think is not worth it. Which is a lie. Everyone is worth some thing. You are not God to judge. You might or not believe in him or might believe in something else, remember you are worth a lot because you are AWESOME. #chesterbennington#ayearagotoday#depression#gethelp#notalone#youareworthamillion#youareawesome#missinghim
Times can get tough, dark, hard to find a light. I found myself in a really deep, and honestly terrifying hole this week. Three whole days passed and I didn’t even have a concept of them; they went so fast as if a blur, but also seemed to standstill and drag on. I have this amazing soul in my life who found me, literally found her way to the new house, and brightened my day with these beautiful flowers. On a day where I felt like there was no hope, where I was literally begging for the pain to end, where tears flowed and I tore myself apart just so I could put some of the pieces back, she knew. She knew what I needed. My partner and my mom pulled through and poured strength into me, something I desperately needed to borrow for a moment. #ptsd#writing#mom#depression#mentalhealthawareness#strength#fight#notalone#love#gratitude
Happiness doesn't always come easy. You're not going to wake up every morning filled with joy but that doesn't mean you're doing life "wrong". It means you're human. •
The trick is to accept and be okay with the days that aren't super cheery. To say to yourself, "Okay. So, today feels a little tough and I'm not super motivated. It's okay. I'm okay." The more you accept those feelings and the more you resist fighting and/or stuffing those feelings the sooner they'll pass. •
Remember, you're human. Your feelings are okay. You're okay. We're all okay. •
