Living Life

I’m getting back to a good place just now after suffering from a bout of depression and wrote this poem this morning as an expression of where I am now and some of the ways I used to get myself here.

We only have one life to live

So live it large, play and give

Some would love the days we own

So try and smile and never moan

We all have trials and things that test

Just courage up and do your best

And if its hard just break it down

Do a little each day to beat that frown

Focus on just one or two tasks

The joy at finishing will break your masks

And soon the false smile will start to be real

And joy returns and you can feel

The gift we’ve been given is to make a mark

So trust in that even when it’s dark

We own the power to spread the light

And harness others to join the fight

So do your best on every day

It will get better if you live this way

Harness your inner love and might

And focus on making it right

Be kind to yourself, live each day your way

Don’t focus on what others might say

You can only do what’s here and now

It’s the only way to get back to your wow

We only have one life to live

So live it large, play and give

Some would love the days we own

So get out and smile and never moan

I started writing as a child but was encouraged to look elsewhere for my career and "get a proper job". I then became a nurse and have only recently returned to writing. I've recently published my first book which you can check out here I live in a beautiful part of Devon, close to a canal where I love to go to write. I have a three legged Burmilla cat called Nala and love anything that brings a little more magic into the world. I developed OCD, Anxiety & Depression, back in 2007 which led to me having to retire from my nursing career and reinvent myself. I am passionate about helping people accept that debilitating mental health problems are just as valid as physical disabilities. And I want to help others who have these conditions to discover their own version of life magic. I am also a part time wheelchair user because of some chronic back conditions.
