Solstice – six months of more light

Dec 22, 2009 | tapping the well, Writing, writing well | 0 comments

solstice – when sunrise and sender become earlier or later, is an incredibly powerful time. It’s one of those primal things, and Winter Solstice is *my* favorite of the two.
I’m a winter gal. I love snow – and the cold is kinda enjoyable too in a “cozy up and do stuff in your home” kinda way.
A few of my friends have commented that they want to change the beat of thier lives – and now is a good time. Simply harness the few extra minutes of sunlight and mve through your day thinking of the things you will
do this summer, and remember the amber depth of the touch of the sun, even if, like me, you like winter.
Another way to use the moment – the lightening of the days is to enjoy the sunlight now – ice is beautiful if you aren’t falling on it – and the sparkle can ignite the joy inside you, if you
let it. Remember though, it’s all about you – belief is a very powerful thing – no matter how you treat it. Joyous Solstice to you!

P is for Psychosis #realmentalhealth #mondayblogs #nomorestigma

This is one of my harder blog posts to write, because though I talk – a lot – about the impact my mental health has on my day to day life, and has done for a while, I’m pretty sure that this is the bit no one really understands, causes the most…misunderstanding and I hope, because I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, they can’t relate to. If you didn’t know that psychosis was a feature of my mental health diagnosis, or didn’t understand if you’d heard it mentioned before now, please…don’t start changing your opinion of me. That’s the biggest reason those of us with serious mental health issues aren’t as open as society needs. Because we lose people.
