Stop playing the victim

  Are you a “victim,” or are you taking responsibility for your life? 🧐  I’m not talking about those who are or have been a victim of some kind of trauma. ❤️‍🩹  But there’s a big difference between being a victim and being a survivor and someone who likes the drama of playing the victim.  So many of us THINK we’re taking responsibility for our own live’s when we aren’t really.  The “victim” mentality is very subtle and it takes…

🌧 The Black Dog 🌧

    Are you in the midst of depression right now?   I experienced depression in 2010 + 2011 + wanted to share some of the things that helped me through it.   ☀️ laying in the sun for as long as I could listening to positive affirmations flat out.    Even though I didn’t believe those affirmations at the time I knew it was better to have that flooding my brain to take the edge off my own thoughts. …

How to navigate your shitty thoughts

Around 80% of our thoughts are negative.  Does that number surprise you? In my twenties I did some volunteering as an Appropriate Adult for vulnerable adults being interviewed by the Police. (Side note: a lot of my mates will have a giggle at me having the title “Appropriate Adult”) 😆 As part of that training we learned about mental health and anxiety provoking thoughts that can lead to behaviour change during interviews. As homework we were told to pay closer attention…
