Day 7. Be Gentle #MWAH2017

I kind of relate a lot to hedgehogs. They're all spikey and lord knows I have been accused of that more than once. I hope that the world is as gentle to you as the care given to an over wintered hedgehog, so that you are safe and warm and don't feel threatened by day to day life enough to uncurl a little bit and enjoy the day.

Day 6. Patience #MWAH2017

Sometimes I can be endlessly patient, but I am terrible at waiting for microwave food. Also I am not very patient with myself.

Day 5. Empty #MWAH2017

Empty arms

Day four. WISH #MWAH2017

Wishes. If wishes were snowflakes I would have a blizzard. I wish a million things.

Day three. TIMELESS #MWAH2017

Today's prompt is timeless.  Not many things are timeless. Time touches every thing. Sure some things endure, like Victorian jewellery or medieval manuscripts and bad tatoos.

Life, however short is always important.

Day one. IMAGINE #MWAH2017

Todays prompt is Imagine. The idea is that you do something creative each day that helps you heal. such as drawing, crafting, photography, writing or blogging.  I'm going to do a blog post each day, and if I can attach a sketch or photograph that links to the prompt and my own story. 


Healing together x

Self care quote 3

Self care means you are surviving to do more than just the base functions in life ,and helps you get back to what is important.

Coping with the trigger of children and babies.

Only a liar would tell you that the pain goes away completely. The sharp shards of pain wear with time like glass in the sea. The edges dull and what was once clear to look at becomes clouded.
