It’s been a struggle in the last couple of weeks. So now that the sun is shining I decided to get to a more positive place. A friend of mine took up blogging as a form of therapy and it reminded me that it is something I like to do as well. So here it goes.
47 and single, struggling with chronic pain and overweight, but also home-owner, proud auntie Leen, and owner of my own company. This is not where I thought I would be. But if you look where I came from ( lousy start in life due to an abusive mother, resulted in weak health and life long lasting lack of self confidence) I’m doing not to bad I think. This is a hard one to believe in on bad days. And reaching out is something I suck at. But I know that shared pain is less pain and that friends around me truly care (although I need reminding every now and then). So, let’s see if this helps.
Mostly I will use this as my gratitude blog. I’m convinced that the world and people are basically good. I’m not always open to it though, so this is my way of being more aware of it and this looking for positive things will hopefully keep the dark clouds away.
