Happy new Year
Its been an interesting year to say the least!! One major operation and on crutches for what seemed like an eternity. Dignity going out of the window and having to accept help from friends with bathing (blush) and several month off work.
What this experience did teach me was not to take your body for granted. It needs to be taken care of, nourished and loved both physically and emotionally.
It was during my time off work that I began the Hungry for change blogging challenge and really started my love for writing, especially poetry. The topics we wrote about were thought provoking and at times emotional. Sharing experiences was so empowering and for once I found myself not triggered or upset by sharing, but motivated. I no longer felt shame or embarrassment over what I may write, I can put myself out there along with everyone and be proud of my achievements.
I may not be the best writer, but I love what I do and I do it in the hope that someone may read it and think, yes, there is a way out, I can beat this.
So now to bore you all with a compilation of my year in photos. Happy new year, here's to a healthy 2013.
