Holding onto hope!

What a lovely thought…savour the moments cocooning and celebrate your day as a butterfly !


Holding onto hope!

Life may seem such a struggle right now but I’m determined not to give up. It’s been over a year since I last took an overdose and I’m not going back there! I love my voluntary work! throwing myself into that gives me a new focus! after all my GP says that focussing on others helps take your mind off your own troubles! An end to my self-harming is another hurdle I need to cross, one which is pooving difficult! My hate for myself is immense and difficult top cope with! I must succeed or they (the ones who hurt me) win!

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
