Hoping for the strength to carry on

So today I am really wrestling with how I can carry on with this blog. I am wondering if anyone is enjoying it or even reading it.

Life is extremely tough at present. My inner resources are depleted. I am wondering why I am writing this daily blog, whether this was just a ridiculous crazy idea and I am doubting myself.

So in this stage of doubt, I am looking to hope to find the strength to carry on, with life, with rebuilding many smashed dreams and to find something better, somehow to build a new life.

I understand why people give up on their dreams and yes I truly understand why people give up on lif, because for those of us who suffer life can just seem too hard. And at this point I want to say RIP Caroline Flack. It is so sad you couldn’t fight on. And I understand, I really do.

But as someone who has fought many battles in my mind, over many many years. I also understand what it is to hope against hope that things will change and get better. At the moment they don’t seem to be, but still I am pressing in to try to find hope in my present situation.

Today’s recipe of hope is simply this-look after yourself. If you are tired, rest. If you are sad cry and if you are happy smile. Let’s be real and let’s not beat ourselves up if we fall over or make a mistake, whether small or large.

And ‘in a world where you can be anything, be kind’.

Keep being kind to others and yourself X
