Today was a wonderful day for me. I know it was Blue Monday and it was raining but it was wonderful. We had our coffee morning and so many people turned up, it was so lovely seeing people talking to each other and new connections being made.
It’s amazing how many of us are in the same situation. In this modern world it’s easy to just send people a message or a text but it’s just not the same as sitting with them and talking. The coffee morning was meant to be for two hours but it went on for three and a half hours with people dropping in and out. I love the feelgood factor of it, I love meeting new people, it’s the perfect start to a Monday morning.
I was given a beautiful bunch of flowers today which I really appreciated, it was just so kind.
There are so many good things happening to me and I’m grateful for every single thing. When I look back to myself this time last year it was a very different story, I was a complete nervous wreck, I wouldn’t have been able to sit in a coffee shop let alone organise a coffee morning or be able to speak about my mental health issues.
Not everyday is a good one but I no longer feel like I’m drowning. When the waves of sadness come I don’t fight it, I know they will go again and best of all I know I’m not alone. Thank you to everyone who came along today and to Blaithin and Havin’aLaugh for being there when I was at my lowest.
