NEWSFLASH: I’m feeling really good.
Work is as challenging as ever but positive and satisfying.
I’m still having problems with my health but it all feels manageable.
My mental health is sound.
I’m tired but getting enough rest.
The fam are all good.
I have a new kitten since about a month ago.
Well, who’d have thunked it?
Later today I’m going to go to the seaside, listen to the ocean waves (avoid looking at the pollution) and chill out.
Last week I woke on Monday really looking forward to work. My daughter is home for the summer and my grandchildren are amazing.
Unfortunately the world is still full of bigoted, abusive and generally vile people. We have at least two new referrals every day. People suffer because they’re women, children, POC, trans and a thousand other things. Ignorance continues and cycles of abuse never seem to end.
But other people are out there; people who care. People who generously give time, money, toys, food and other things for nothing in return.
Abused women support others who have suffered. This too is a cycle.
When all the crap seems overwhelming, someone restores my faith in humanity.
And then there is my faith in a higher power. She always makes me feel better. I’m so glad I married her.
So if you’re feeling bad, sad or mad… It can get better.
It will probably get bad again (let’s keep it real guys, this is life, remember). But that’s just another cycle.
Much love x
