The Bright Side of Life
(First of all, if you didn’t start sing Monty Python’s ‘always look on the bright side of life,’ after reading the title…then I’m not sure we can be friends, sorry.)

You never really know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice…
Some of us find life a little more difficult to navigate than others, for many different reasons, one of them being mental illness.
Sometimes just keeping going, just living, just surviving each day can seem like the most insurmountable task for some of us. Anything extra on top of simply ‘being’ can feel impossible.

January. The month of the detox. The cleanse. The flat tummy tea. The diet. The gym rush.
