Sorry everybody but I’m going to break form with this post. This is #JillJanus of the band #huntress She died yesterday. You might not have heard about it, due to a much bigger death story. The bigger issue, is that Jill took her own life. If the darkness in your life becomes insurmountable and all too consuming, PLEASE reach out to someone. You can reach out to me, I’ll give you my personal phone number. For Jill it’s unfortunately too late. For you it’s not. #suicideprevention#suicideswareness#dontkillyourself
Hello again! How are you? Please, know that the things written on the picture are real and true. I know it seems like nobody cares about you, or that you feel like you are a burden. But listen to me. You are not. You are more important than you think. You matter. And I believe in you with all my heart. Today do something to feel better: paint, draw, open your windows, change your bedsheets, drink a few glasses of water, write down your thoughts, go for a walk, watch a happy movie. You can do it! And you will get better. You will feel good again. I promise. ♡
I made this edit for the incredible vocalist, Jill Janus. She was the singer for the heavy metal band Huntress and unfortunately took her very own life this past Tuesday. Rest in peace to this amazing, beautiful, metal goddess.💜🖤

Just when I have been missing you more than ever, I find these old photos. I remember that day. It was so fun. We had Gage’s 18th birthday party and mom asked dad to marry her. We had a photo shoot. You let me play model, while you played fancy pants photographer. Then you took a picture of yourself, just so I could have right now, for this moment. I miss you sis, miss your laugh the most. #suicideprevention#yourarenotalone#sisterforever#gonebutnotforgotten @endearing.emily

Alissa says it best, with some words on the tragedy of losing Jill Janus of Huntress:
Regrann from @alissawhitegluz "I KNOW it’s difficult and draining to be alive sometimes, that mental illness (i really think we need a new term for this) is an uphill battle for those suffering and those around them. We do NOT all live life the same way. To some, every day is Sisyphean.
Please try to go out of your way to be kind to one another; go out of your way to send a text or call someone when you think of them; make a point of doing simple gestures to improve someone’s day. Doyle and I were just talking about Jill and her pup this week as we looked at some pendants she gave me. I should have called her. 💔 "
If you or anyone you know needs help, please reach out.
Looking at some old photos for some inspiration, and I came across this scan of a hard copy from 1991, as a 19 year old triathlete. I was actually really good at that sport back then, with “then” not feeling like it was long ago.
I would imagine I was in the top 5 of this Townsville, QLD race, as I would usually have a solid swim time, a very average ride time, and usually the fastest run time to make up the lost ground. So this is probably a picture of me busting me gut to keep too many good cyclists overtaking me. Even today, when I get a chance to get out, I’m still a pretty crap cyclist.
I have a pretty good reason now why I trained so hard and did so well- I’m so full of adrenaline and anxiety that at the time, with out knowing of the concept, I was intensely burning off the anxiety, craving the good chemicals that come with exercise. It still works, I’m just older, fatter, and slower now 😂🏊♂️🚴♂️🏃♂️

We have more people walking around dead every single day, than the lives lost fighting each other. ::

“This bus (5asidechess) is currently in the grassmarket in Edinburgh. They promote the opportunity to chat over a game of chess and to try to reach out to those who may be socially isolated/offer people the chance to connect.
Their aims is to get people talking, improve mental health and ultimately prevent suicide.
Some of the messages on the bus are beautiful and others are very sad. I’ve stuck a Scott “make tiny changes sticker” there and they guy was nice enough to help me pick a spot that he thought it would last longer“ Grassmarket, Edinburgh 🏴 / 📷: @pandahpusss / #tinychangesallover
