Sexual Abuse – The Past & The Court Case

It’s Friday… 11 days since my last post. Last week I was busy working long hours with my temp job, then I had therapy on the Thursday and gratefully a weekend mindfulness retreat after that.  Since then, the last 4 days… I’ve been anxious… I’ve lost what little focus I had managed to gain.   Today

I’m full of Ideas and I’m Excited…

  I’m sitting here this morning, bursting with IDEAS.   Though… I have to get ready soon to go to town.  I’m helping my good friend in her Health Food store until Christmas as an extra pair of hands on deck on Thursdays.  It’s great, it get’s me out, give’s me a wee purpose and

Stuck in a Loop – Overindulging – Update 1

So plans changed just a little over the last few days, however I did have a potential night last night out, where I needed to be mindful. I have made a commitment to stop taking any social drugs for the foreseeable future.  Not that it was a big issue for me.  But it wasn’t helping

4th Day Went Good

I got up today with a plan of action and had a good day. I’m now chilling with a few squares of dark chocolate basking in my achievements 🙂  … and it does feel like I’ve earned this moment.  I know myself when I ‘get shit done’ I feel better in myself, feel like I’ve

Stuck in a Loop – Overindulging

I wrote ‘Drifting Through Life – Time to Change’ well over a week ago now. Not much has changed since.  It’s like I know something has to change, something has to move, something has to develop… but that’s really hard to do.  Especially when I seem to be stuck in the same loops that have
