Depression, divorce, having to take the kids to an Olly Murs concert… we’ve all been there. Well, maybe not; the specifics might change but one thing’s for sure, if you’re reading this you’ve dealt with some shit along the way. That’s life folks!
The thing about shit though, it’s a great fertiliser. In dealing with the shit in our lives we learn, we grow, we become better people. Sometimes, we even start a blog.
That’s what I did, in the aftermath of divorce and depression I took to my tablet and I wrote. And I wrote. And I wrote some more. In fact, since beginning my blog in December 2015 I haven’t shut up.
I write to make sense of things, to find meaning, to release the thoughts and emotions that swirl senselessly around my head, hoping that they reveal some clarity upon landing as words on the page.
By writing I hope to learn things about myself and about life that will make each new chapter in my life better than the one that went before it. In doing so I hope that my writing can help others along the way, to find their own meaning and to provide some food for thought, some comfort, and maybe some laughter too.
Shit happens, but if we look there’s usually something to make us smile amongst the mess; maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day we can find it, and if it’s proving hard to find then we can create it ourselves. Life’s always better when you’re smiling.
Thank you for dropping by, I’m pleased that you found your way here and I hope that you stick around for more love, laughter and truth.
Very best wishes
