Life has been a bit of a bitch of late and as a result I have been struggling with lots of things including blogging/writing. I have found it hard to know what to write about when my head is so full of worries but things are starting to improve somewhat and today on Instagram I decided to take part in a meme that Hannah Witton is running on that platform called #DearJune. Every day there is a word prompt, today the word is beginnings and I wrote this;
I have decided to join in with @hannahwitton #dearjune project. Today’s prompt is ‘beginnings’.
I was so looking forward to 2019. I was full of plans and exciting adventures but then the truth is that everything turned a bit to shit with us having problems and then Michael getting really sick with his Ulcerative colitis. He is finally, slowly on the mend, although he has a long way to go to back to full strength and is taking meds that come with some fairly nasty side effects, but we are working on reconnecting so the prompt of beginnings feels apt. The first half of this year has been pretty awful…maybe…hopefully the second half which starts today can be better.
Happy New Year!
Then I realised that Hyacinth was also running her #EveryDamnDayInJune meme, the point of which is to post something every single day of June. I didn’t do it last year for various reasons but this year I find myself in a place where I need something to challenge and motivate me in this space both with words and pictures as I have also neglected my photography a lot of late. I don’t have a plan of what I am going post, I shall just see what each day brings and go with the flow. I also promise myself that I will be kind to myself if I miss the odd day or post late. It is OK for it not to be perfect, the most important thing is to enjoy it and let it see where it takes me.
And the picture? I took it this morning curled up naked on the sofa under a blanket with Michael and everything just felt good and hopeful.
