More Than 35 Days..

Hey loves! How have you been? I hope August didn’t kick your ass too much and if it did, I hope you bounce back even stronger this September. 🙂

I have been thinking about this space quite a bit lately and after reading The Cultured Cow’s most recent blogpost, I was inspired to visit my own blog. My last post was in April and at the time, depression had it’s murderous claws around my neck and I desperately wanted to come up for air. I thought it would take me 35 days of healing but it’s been almost 4 months and I finally feel like I am coming back to myself, though there’s still a lot more healing to do.

I came across this post on Instagram that reminded me that healing is not linear. Like self love, it’s a process of evolving and becoming. You live, you uncover a new layer, you’re asked to go deeper still. And as exhausting and unglamorous as the process may be, it all belongs..it’s all part of it.

So I’ve learnt to celebrate the good days and go through the motions on the bad days. No running, no evading, no using work or alcohol as a crutch but really just dealing and going through it because, like the post said, it all belongs. And through this, I’ve learnt to talk to God a lot more. I’ve learnt to live as I heal so I no longer have to wait until I’m ‘healed’ in order to live.

That being said, this healing season brought so much clarity about what I want to do, who I want to become, what I want to achieve, who I want to be surrounded by and I am so excited to see what God has in store for me in this next chapter. I hope that you remember to give yourself lots of grace as you heal, evolve and become. I know I will! 🙂

    I heavily relate because heh – there was a time I was like God now , “everyday tears “ and I’m also slowly stepping into doing things that bring me joy and I don’t worry about that’s not what someone expected me to do etc etc.

    Excited to see where you tread next 🥂🥂
