Holding on to emotional baggage or physical baggage can keep us from reaching our fullest potential. How??? Because these are the things people hide behind in order to not have to face their truth. Food, clothing, alcohol, makeup...most of it serves to mask our deepest feelings and our most authentic selves. If you find this is the case for you, what can you let go of today? A new year is around the corner and it's the perfect time to let go. ๐Ÿ“ท: @bemorewithless

Iโ€™ve recently been thinking about how much my family has changed and in this Christmas period, itโ€™s been really interesting to reflect back on Christmases been and gone and see how things are now.
I have written a blog post about my Christmas Traditions - then and now, and you can check it out on my blog (link in the bio).

I'm in a warm place and feeling much less stressed. โ™ก Everyone needs a vacation sometimes; I forget how much stress plays a factor in worsening chronic illness. However, a stress-free life isn't realistic, so I have to strike a balance. Does anyone have tips on reducing stress as an ill student??

Hehe only a few more sleeps till Santa comes....but Shimmer ended up with one of her pressies early as she has been such a good furbabe ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿถ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ
Here she is laying up in front of the fan with her 'Melf' (monkey elf) after enjoying a full on session of 'find the squeaker' and tossing it around my bed.
I tried to never dwell on how much i have missed out on with being in hospital so long and was extremely lucky to see my beautiful hubby and daughter nearly every day over that almost 20mth admission (not including all the prior admissions for surgeries and treatments etc).... but damn I never realised how much this lil bundle of fur meant to me!
Dont get me wrong, I missed her constantly and love her so much but since being home she has showered me with so much love, protection and makes my heart swell enormously! She rarely leaves my side and seems to always know when my pain is flaring and almost shelters whatever part is in agony so that it doesnt get bumped etc.
Shimmer you are amazing xx

Woke up to another awesome review. Receiving peopleโ€™s opinions on my creative work is kind of like those awful naked-on-a-stage dreams, especially since my book is nonfiction. But sometimes itโ€™s ok to be naked. #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #writersofinstagram #bookreview #newauthor #grateful #chronicpain #spoonie
