Self-care is crucial for maintaining good mental health, so what have you been up to? If you haven’t been partaking in self-care this week, what do you aim to do for next week?
Like those stretchmarks, wrinkles, lines, the added height she has not seen, I am confronted with an intense grief.
If you get night terrors; you are not a freak. You are not a freak for feeling anxious, or because you have experienced trauma, or any other reason.
My mother died in 1999, but I still miss her as though she just walked out the door.
Self care can be defined as this: an activity that helps to improve your mental health and wellbeing without causing stress or anxiety.
From a small comment, to a long letter: What would it be?
My locket became an important talisman for me to wear when grief crushed the life out of me. The subtle gold heart became an important symbol that my mum existed, and that once I was happy. My locket became my mum’s way to witness my life as I lived it.
In case you missed anything from June…
For our 5th Something To Brighten Your Sunday, I hope you enjoy these photos of some very regal birds!
When we put the photos in, and I put it on, I didn’t feel happy. I felt safe. I felt like, now I have my locket, Mummy will always be in the right ventricle of my heart, and I could always show people a picture of my Mum. I felt more relaxed, like I didn’t have to try so hard to keep remembering. But most of all, I felt close to Mummy.
