Happy New Year #DearJune

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.

Molly, I love the photo. Your green eyes look happy. My husband/Master had open heart surgery in December so I unerstand your worries and challenges. We also have some medications to deal with but are working around them. Cheers to a happier rest of 2019.

Happy New Year to both!

How I hope this second half of the year is kind to you both! You deserve it, lovely. And I’m glad you joined in Every Damn Day! I need a bit of a nudge myself, and that little reminder (I hope) will keep me moving forward.

I’ve only recently been on Instagram, and under my full name…I am going to take a look at the meme you mention and see if it might help me get more familiar with it (I’m woefully behind the rest of the social media world in this, and my daughter has been begging me to get on more often!)

I guess you found it as I saw your followed me etc. I hope it was OK to follow back from my Molly account. And I am good at IG but I have no idea how snapchat works and my kids think I am so out of touch as a result

This is a beautiful picture. I am glad that with all the craziness there are small pieces of time that feel good and hopeful. Wishing you both the best of health and recovery.

It’s good to see you are feeling good and hopeful, my friend. I love that you are doing the challenge, and hope this can get you back to writing and your photography, that this can energize you as much as you need.

I am glad that you are going t9 be writing more and hopefully that will help. You have had so much on it’s not surprising it affected things. I read this the other day but didn’t get a chance to comment. I hadn’t known about the meme but it sounds like a good idea. HL said no for me though so I look forward to reading all your posts instead. missy x

In the past Michael has advised against it too but he encouraged me this time round

Sending you both good vibrations and wishes – sometimes life throws those curve balls at you and it can be so exhausting swerving to dodge them and then trying to find your balance again. xx
