Because I Can

This is me and it’s who I want to be!

I thought I would share to the world the best version of me that I can be right now…

I feel free and happy…for once my smile is real because it comes from within!

I’m not the most beautiful girl in the world but I am genuine and true to myself.

Have a great weekend everyone

~live, life, love~

A reason to fight

I went to watch Disturbed at The o2 Apollo In Manchester last night, it was a great concert if anyone hasn’t heard their version of The Sound of Silence then it’s a must listen to moment. 

Their lead singer David Draiman talks with such a passion about his lyrics, the one that really stood out is the song “Reason to Fight”, he wrote this about the struggles of mental illness, the words are so meaningful.. 

“When the demon that’s inside you is ready to begin 

And it feels like it’s a battle that you will never win 

When you’re aching for the fire and begging for your sin 

When there’s nothing left inside, there’s still a reason to fight…”

David talked about how it’s important to talk about mental health, how people should open up to others and be honest with themselves. He said so many people loose important people in their lives just because they are afraid to make the first move, to say ‘hey I’m struggling, I miss you, can we talk!’

Don’t ever let pride or stubbornness stand in the way of getting help, don’t suffer in silence, stop covering your emotions and be open and honest with yourself, we all can have ‘A Reason to Fight’ if we want one. 

I hardly ever get a photo opportunity with my Dad so here are some pictures of a great night. 

Love my parents all the world 💕

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my annoying, sarcastic, intelligent, funny and a great make-up artist sister Jess, she is 15yrs old today. We went to Manley Mere in Cheshire on Saturday which is an out door adventure trail, it was a good laugh even though I nearly passed out through spinning on a round about, to say I have now have motion sickness is an understatement ha! (ooh and I found £10 in the mud, well I found it and my dad fell in the water trying to get it ha) I hope she enjoys her marvel box of presents and make-up cos they cost a bloody fortune but she’s worth it.

Love you Jess Harris you bolshy little shit!

~Family means more than life~

Balancing life as usual!
The Birthday Girl!
Doesn’t stop her talking!
Shit this is not safe!

Passage over time

I saw this shared picture on Facebook and it made me think about people and past events. In the heat of an argument we all react first and think second which nearly always results in harsh words being said. But when you reflect and be honest with yourself you realise reaction is not the best form of action. 

Things happen for a reason but it’s how you deal with them and move on that matters in the end. 

I’ve really learned since starting my journey with Mental health and depression that people do things for a reason but we don’t have to know that reason all the time, we have to say well yeah shit happens, people are not nice all the time and it’s better to move on with your thoughts or it will all end up destroying you within. 

I will not let my past and what’s happened in it to destroy, define or stop my future happiness. 

I can do this! I will do this! 

~happiness is a state of mind~

Failed again…

Well my new Tinder bio failed miserably

I got a match .. 🎉🎉

My match unmatched me after I said my ideal first date would be a nice meal out and good conversation wtf!

Ooh hello did I answer wrong should it have been “I’d like to get my leg over after some posh meal” .. no thanks mate I ain’t no f*** buddy for no one 😡

So I think I need one if these pillows instead 🤣🤣

At least I can still laugh about it , well it’s either that or cry in a corner ha !

Na my crying days are long gone bye!
