This is one of my "talk myself out of a low mood" pages! I try really hard not to be a Moaning Minnie, always on about my pain or problems. We all know how it can feel to be on the receiving end of someone who only ever wants to talk about themselves, their health, their latest operation etc so when this journey of chronic illness began I made a private vow that I wouldn't turn into one of those. OK I will also admit that we have one in the family as a horrid example ... which made me all the more determined to work at being half full rather than half empty!
But it was a bit of a blue day so I made this background of blue circles, and you can see the first words I wrote down below. I often do this - make a background and then just write something, anything down. It frequently surprises me what pops out that I didn't know was there but which needed to be said and acknowledged in order to deal with it.
