Phoenix Fights

Fighting the FEAR, depression and BDP on a daily basis AND making my own bread. Bring it on 2016….




Today I discovered that a lady who I have just started following, succumbed to her illness and died of cancer yesterday leaving behind a devastated husband, family and friends.

Puts everything in perspective doesn’t it?

It’s so easy to get dragged down by the challenges, politics, bean counters and wankers in this life, and whilst I believe you should always hold your ground and fight when necessary, if you get too embroiled or take it too seriously, the beauty and joy in life will pass by without you even seeing it.

I say you.  I mean you and me.

Especially me. 😦

So whilst it’s all too easy for all of us to get bogged down with the negative (especially those of us ‘mentally/emotionally challenged’ folk) , I am going to try and find, acknowledge and make note of all the positive things about my day from now on.

I know without a doubt that there will be days when all is shit and the only positive thing will be the dark warm sanctuary under my duvet, but I am, at least going to try.

Positives from this weekend?

  • Beating my brother at scrabble
  • Making and enjoying a sensational rhubarb and ginger crumble
  • Getting dragged around the ballroom dance floor by some super fit old boy old enough to be my grandpa 🙂
  • Watching ‘Witnnail and I’ with a friend who has not seen it before (I love Withnail virgins!)

The latter of these inspired me to find and post the image of our nimble little friend here. 🙂

Here’s hoping you get to leap with ‘joie de verve’ this week, and enjoy the wind in your hair, the sun on your back and all the possibilities that lie ahead for you.

Emma Louise, may you leap high and fly to the arms of the ones you love.


God speed, and see you in the next life x

    Sorry for the loss of your friend. Short times with someone, especially when you learn about them quickly, paves the way for a tough grieving time for ya.

  2. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you for you blog, I have really enjoyed it thus far. Here is a post of some details if you wish to participate and pay it forward.

  3. It’s sad when people go. Especially the ones, that we didn’t have to know to the full. And moments like these remind us that we should enjoy and treasure every minute of the day.
    Be strong.

  4. Reblogged this on ASpoonfulofSuga and commented:
    a really touching post it will set you right

  5. Beautiful post. Things like this are why I always tell my friends/family “I care for you” before we part ways…even if we’ve had a fight. You never know what life will throw at you, and it’s worth it to know your last words were the ones they *should* hear.

    Sorry for your loss, and for her family’s loss. Hopefully her next life will be longer…
