Hello 2014!

Apologies to all of my subscribers and friends who may have disappointed in the lack of posts throughout 2013.  Sometimes you just have a year that throws as much at you as possible to see if you'll cope, and it seems 2013 was my year for it.

So with the arrival of a new year, I feel I should try and update this blog more often, and maybe even give it a facelift.  I am so amazed at the fan base that has grown on Facebook... I'm nearly at 1000 fans! which is just crazy!  I tend to post more regularly to FB than here, so if you want to keep in touch, you can find my page here.

Life is pretty good at the moment.  I am busy with art requests and paintings, courses and moving my work forward.  Despite the rain, I am looking forward to this year with eager anticipation.
Last year, I studied for my PTLLS (Preparing to Teach in the Lifeling Learning Sector) certificate, and am currently training to be a Meditation Teacher.  I am also studying for a Colour Therapy Diploma.  I have ideas and plans and am hoping 2014 is the year things get moving for me.

PMDD still troubles my life, however to even be sitting in this position, planning a future and setting goals is nothing short of a miracle.  Everything I have learned about cycle awareness, seasonal correspondences, observation and mindfulness has got me to this point.. the journey hasn't even finished yet, but even if it had, I am so happy to be where I am now.  I'm certain there are some major astrological influences to things changing, but I will not do myself an injustice.. I have worked hard to get to this point.  My determination to get my mental health under control, deal with my demons, look after myself, discover who I really am under the mood storms and depression is a relentless, never ending task. Thankfully, my main focus is no longer on just surviving.. now that I have learned how to walk from scratch, I can start thinking about running.. maybe even dancing...

Here's to 2014... it's gonna be busy and productive...
