Here I Go Again …

Hello! After watching Anna Brims’s EBDUK event vlog yesterday and re-hearing Rachel Blundell talk about how her self care looks like going to the gym, I’ve finally admitted to myself that I REALLY need to work on the physical aspect of my recovery from mental illness. At the moment my physical wellness habits are still playing second fiddle to my mental wellness habits, but now it’s time to make them a priority – to quote Rachel: I need to make sure I’m able to do all that I’m meant to do – soooooo after doing a bit of research, I might have just ordered myself a Passion Planner Pro. It was only £12 from Amazon – I guess because it’s dated and started in January, but that’s fine with me. Now I just need to figure out what stickers I’m gonna need! xxxx

The Finding Hope Challenge 2019

Hello! Today I’m launching the @crafting.out.loud Finding Hope Challenge 2019. For detailed info, please watch my YouTube video below, but the basics are as follows: over the course of July we’re going to journal about all the things that give us hope, that feeling of positive expectation, the things we look forward to, so that by the end of the month we’ll have built up a ‘hope bank’ from which we can make withdrawals during times when our hope needs a bit of a top-up. Also, I’ve created another craft along kit to go with this challenge. Again, details are in the video. I do hope you’ll join me in creating this really useful wellness tool. xxx
