Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    I actually started yoga last week because I felt I needed to, until I developed the most horrendous cramp In my leg and decided it just wasn't for me 😂

    I went for a walk around the park today. The weather has been so nice this week!

    Watch a movie! Watched toy story and then I watched 3 after too
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Watch a movie - a nurse is bringing in a film for me to watch tonight.. apparently it's about the strength and determination of a young woman and she thinks it could help me, it's called the colour purple, anyone seen it?

    I'm not the best at this self care, I did try some of the stuff in the bingo but it turns out me and water don't seem to go well at the moment (I keep burning myself with hot water)

    Today I'm meeting a friend for the day. Should be a nice friend day :heart:

    Think we both need some friend time. So cant wait.
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    I did number 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12,15,17,19 and 20.
    I have endured pain and loss. I have felt broken. I have known hardship, and I have felt lost and alone.

    But here I stand, trying to move forward, one day at a time. I will remember the lessons in my life because they are making me who I am. Stronger.
