Hope everyone’s recovering from the festive period and the New Year’s treating you kindly so far! I thought i’d kick off my 2019 blogging with A Chronic Voice ‘s January Link-Up. This month focuses on the following themes;
One of my hopes for this year is to establish an online store of crystal-themed candles and bath products. Having established my blog last year, I’m looking to build on it and expand! I’ve been doing a lot of research into the legal and financial sides of this and learning how it would work and what i’d need to get approved.
For now i’m working out my potential product range and hoping to start with just candles and wax melts! It won’t be my main income at all, but i’d love to have something creative to do and share!
January 2019 bring for me a charming anniversary of 10 years of having seizures. Not really something to dedicate the month to but it does make me stop and think about things. My seizures came out of nowhere when I was 17 and have impacted my life massively, no way about it.
Having a disability like that means you have to dedicate time planning how to keep yourself safe and checking in with yourself. I’ve worked hard to have a life and career around them and think i’ve done okay regardless!
Something I truly want to work on this year is not letting myself reach breaking point. Last year was ridiculously hard with pain and surgery and being off work for so long. The worst bit was the isolation though. I struggled a lot and hit breaking point a couple of times. I’m very fortunate I have a good friendships who helped.
I hope I can keep practicing mindfulness and remembering to check in with myself and most importantly, to just breathe.
I want to continue strengthening my spiritual side in 2019. I’ve been a practicing Wiccan a long time now, but my journey with nature and my beliefs is never over. I’ve recently started an inside herb garden so even on bad days I can be surrounded by a bit of nature and hope to be able to use the herbs in both cooking and pagan practices!
I love crafting and creating things but haven’t been well enough to do a lot of it the past year. Hopefully I can reconnect with it all this year.
In a post where i’ve talked about so many goals and hopes it’s important to just allow myself to be. I’m getting used to the idea that i’m disabled and finding ways to deal with that without letting it feel like it’s all that I am. I think I have to allow myself the time and chance to find a good balance of work, life and health which’ll ultimately let me feel happier!
I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2019!
