Word of the Week - 4th July 2014

It's word of the week time again. This week I have struggled to choose one word which sums up this week. I could have chosen worry, devastation, grief, loss, emptiness or sadness.

But I am not choosing any of them. I want to focus on positive feelings. I have chosen as my word of the week, or this week it should be word of the day as it is how I am feeling today, is...


Why have I chosen Optimism after this devastating week?

Well, today, I have woken up with a determination that I have not felt in a while. A determination to dug myself out of this hole of grief and depression. I have chosen this word to keep me going as I know that tomorrow I may not feel like this.

I will definitely not feel like this when I visit my Nanna at the funeral directors, I won't feel like this at her funeral.

But today I do.

I know that I can over come this.

So I will re read this post as to remind myself that I am strong. I can do this. My my hubby, children, parents, give me the support that I need to do this.

I have been lucky with my medication and have a practically no side effects. The start of the day isn't good but come mid to late afternoon I am starting to feel more like myself. I have been baking which always cheers me up and after not doing any for a week it was good to get back to doing what makes me happy.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

I am sharing my Word of the Week with the lovely Jocelyn at The Reading Residence
