Anyways I just wanted to share a quick little behind the scenes pic of our most recent photo shoot at @lornajanecanada. I've said this before and I'll say it again, I Love My Job and I Love My Team Thanks to @heartinspiresprogress for the candid pic
Are you where you thought you would be?
Did you hit those "resolutions" you SWORE you would accomplish?
I didn't. But it's ok.
I have way too many things I want to accomplish...i love being creative. I love working on my blog. I love helping others add healthier changes to their lifestyle. I love being with my family.
But me going a million miles an hour lately isn't working.
And if you want something different... do something different. You aren't of more value by doing more. ... because it wears on you and you leave yourself in the dust...left to the wind.
There is so much more to me than fitness and health.
Time to pick myself up and regroup.
Listen. REALLY listen.
Love fully. Myself too.
But I want your thoughts... What do you enjoy most that I post about?
What is something you are still working on...and refuse to give up on?
Ive been a bit quiet on here of late- i apologise. Ive been dealing with personal issues surrounding my anxiety (which i have told you all about in previous posts) thing is, i got to a point last week where i felt i couldnt cope for a day longer. My anxieties were building i was worrying more and more about things i cant control, life circumstances which will effect me but cannot be controlled by me and that's something i struggle to deal with. It was a war zone in my head. I saught help from my GP, it was time, it really was- i just needed to learn i didnt/dont have to do this alone and its time for me to start building my support network.
Mental illness is not something i am ashamed of, but at times it does make me afraid of it, its a world of unknowns, its triggers are never consistant and how it shows itself isnt either. One day i know i will be strong again, but right now i feel weak, venerable, insecure and unsure but thats ok, i have to ride the waves til the storm passes.
Dont be afraid to reach out, its ok to be weak, we dont have to ride the journey alone.

The time has come, the walrus said... To talk of many things... Of shoes and ships and ceiling wax... Of cabbages and kings... And why the sea is boiling hot... And whether pigs have wings! . #harrietthespy#olegollyolegolly #writing#journal#whatsyouroutlet
Harriet the spy used to be one of my favorite movies as a kid. I admired her writing and how she wrote what she felt-whether good or bad. It’s been a while since the last time I wrote anything and I am glad I did.
Many people see me and think I’m a happy person but they don’t know the battles I’m fighting against myself each and everyday. I left college because I entered a state of depression that I couldn’t overcome. I wasn’t doing great in my classes, I went from being an honor roll student to someone who couldn’t maintain adequate grades. It’s I had select professors that actually gave a shit but the academic advisor I originally had didn’t believe in me. How was someone suppose to succeed when the one person who was suppose to boost their moral and help you meet goals doubted every inch of your being. Which in turn made me stop believing in myself. I had days where I physically did all I could to leave my room. I wouldn’t go to classes, I would have friends knock on my door and I would leave my lights off so people would think I wasn’t there. It’s not anything anyone ever did, it’s the demons that are within that were surpassing everything of my being. It’s a struggle everyday and lately it hasn’t been easy. Sometimes I can be mean but it’s not intentionally directed at anyone it sometimes happens to be released on the first person that is there for the dumbest reasons. It’s not always something you can control. Before you start criticizing me for being mean, take a step back and wonder if maybe something is going on. You don’t always know what’s going on in someone else’s life and each person copes with things differently. Each day is a learning experience. I make mistakes but I hope people see the good things I do as well. Sometimes I’m doing all I can to keep my head above water because #depression and #anxiety suck. You think everyone is against you.
