Things you need to know about me #1

 I found my smile

Five years ago, I had one of those earth shattering experiences that implants itself like a bookmark in your life story. You know the kind where all events are then categorised as “before..” or “after…”

The months and maybe years after said event were a mixture of both blurry, forgotten moments waiting for a memory to be triggered and crystal clear elements that haunted me, popping unannounced into my day.

Today however, does not feel like that.

Today I choose to think only happy thoughts and when my emotions float just below the surface threatening to break through, I pause and acknowledge the feelings. Instead of consuming me, they have their moment and then disappear.

It’s been a long journey.

But I’m here. Stronger than before, authentic and confident too.

I found my smile through journalling, counselling and spending time with myself, searching for the real me.

When you hit rock bottom you have to rebuild yourself.

All of yourself.

It’s hard, but when you’ve experienced pain you have the understanding and courage to share and support others.

I found my smile, I want to help you find yours.

I’m no expert, but I have experience. I don’t know your story, but I’ll share mine. I want to live a happy, fulfilling life and I bet you do to.
