Day 31

Queen of my own heart. Liver of my own life.

Former target of domestic violence.

Advocate for others who still are.

10 long years of sorrow, joy, heartache, love, pain, hope, regret, illness, gratitude.

10 years ago today since we left that house of horror.

Recovery is a life-long project … or feels that way at least.

Reach out to someone who you know has been there too. ❤︎

 

 

Day 26

Reach for the sky in small ways …

Wear your favourite colour.

Play your favourite song.

Dance alone at home.

Eat your favourite food.

Love yourself at all times.

Day 21

Does it sometimes feel as though you are facing a familiar brick wall for the umpteenth time?

This frustrates me and induces high levels of stress.

Time for time out.

For Self-care.

Do it.

Day 19

Have you ever seen yourself through the eyes of the person that you are becoming?

To see our future selves in our own reflection is a moment of incredulity.

If you have asked the universe for something that you desire, that something is waiting for you to collect it … once you have done the work that is required to get to it of course.

That includes the new version of yourself that you are working so hard to become … it already exists … and sometimes we are treated to a glimpse of it when we catch ourselves in the mirror in that millisecond before prejudice awakens …

 

Day 18

You can make LOVE from any combination of circumstances around you. It just requires the right frame of mind and a wee bit of courage.

Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between what’s right for the Self (true love) and the rest of it (deception of Self).

Unfortunately I have found that the only way to FEEL the difference (and so choose accordingly) is to LEARN with the passage of time and experience …

No shortcuts here.

 

Day 16

Today I walked in two forests, got soaked in the rain and boarded a train that would take me on a 17 hour journey through city, country and clearing until I reached the desert.

The forest is where I am my deepest self – where I am connected to the core of something that I grieve to leave when I have to return to the desert. And once I am in the desert that deep connection seems lost.

Even so, I am able to exist and move forward. But I want to live through the core connection that forest enables me to experience. Not just to exist in forward motion.

Day 11

Gravity may choose to leave?

“Your attitude determines your direction” (Megan again, Instagram).

This just seems so obvious.

And yet I see today that some are starting to question this basic principle, apparently because they’re “sick of hearing about it”.

I’m sick of hearing about gravity – but gravity doesn’t care. It ain’t gonna shift just cos I want something different for a change.

Or is it?

We’ll see ….

Day 4

Have you been a lizard lately?

If you’re subscribed to my blog I imagine you might be thinking, “Come on Seona – I can do with less than an update every day, if you please”. So – after today the “500 day” posts will be weekly, starting on the 7th November. Daily updates will be posted in the “snippets” section of […]

Day 3

Getting things done: making extra time

What if you could have an extra three hours in your day to achieve your goals and dreams! Well it’s happened to me – and the person doing the gifting is … me! Here’s how I do it … When I started this 500 day project I committed to getting up at four in the […]
