Reflecting on Magical Friendships at the Most Magical Time of the Year

A few months ago, in a previous post, I spoke about the significant role my family plays in my life. This was a powerful reflection, so I wanted to extend that to speak about friendships.

I unintentionally saved this… Continue reading Reflecting on Magical Friendships at the Most Magical Time of the Year

Mentally Balancing the Positives and Negatives of My Disability

The aim of my blog is to capture both good experiences and bad experiences I have had and continue to have throughout my, life. Yes, I’ll admit I’m a positive person and even with the negative blogs I always seem to try and find a ‘positive ending’.

How Post Lockdown Is Affecting Both My Physical and Mental Health

How great is it that normal life or the ‘new normal’ way of life is resuming? I’m very much enjoying seeing friends and family again and doing things other than sitting on my garden.
