Very apt quote for right now! I feel deeply saddened for all the loss and missed opportunities, the lack of contact and normality, and the restrictions on our lives that are impacting us all so much.

I’ve had to stop letting myself mull over all my kids are missing out on right now, as it makes me feel too sad and I can’t change it.

So instead, I try to focus on what I can do in this challenging time. Today I will walk, do the work that I can, jolly along my children and maybe catch a yoga class.

Within limits, I can plan in regular walks with a friend and make sure my children have regular meet ups like this too.

We can make sure we have nice meals and little treats.

We can pick up activities and hobbies and use the time we have for these. My new favourite is diamond painting!

We’re making a list of all the great things we’ll do together once this has lifted 💓

When I bring it back to me and my family in this moment, I realise there are some things I can control in this moment.

How can you help yourself live more in this moment?

Proactive mental wellbeing.... every day practicing self care and love, stress and mood management, promoting healthy self esteem, using positive self talk.

There is so much we can do to preserve better mental wellbeing.

Kindness and respect for others is in there too. We feel good when we help others. When we make someone else happy it reinforces a positive message, just as when we upset someone it can make us feel difficult emotions like guilt, regret and sadness.

Each of us has the power to lift or hurt someone with our words and actions. You can affect someone else’s mental wellbeing.

Today what is a kind word or act you can offer someone? Make someone else feel happy. This stuff really matters.

As I go about my day being something to many - mum, partner, confidante, occupational therapist, colleague, I will intentionally make space for me too.

I recognise that I cannot be effective at all of these roles if I don’t first look after myself.

You are needed right here, you have a place in this world.

Your people need you, you are loved and wanted.

You have a future ahead of you, and it doesn’t have to be filled with darkness and pain.

Wait out those thoughts and feelings, for they will pass. Hold on tight and wait. Ask for help. Stay ❤️
