Well, I have been away for over a week (not long I suppose…) and in that time, I’ve been taking a wander around my life and made some decisions. For a start, I thought I’d choose a new ‘Theme’ for what will hopefully be a fresh start. The stars in the night sky give me hope for the future which is why I chose this image for my new style blog. You’ll see I’ve changed the blog topic name to ‘A little bit of this and a little bit of that’ because that’s what I want to attempt to write about.
I chose this video clip as it shows Julie Andrews returning to the children and all of them remembering their favourite things and the tone of the song goes from being a little sombre to purely delightful. I wish, I hope, I pray that this joy reaches out to touch you all and to touch me equally, dear friends.
I know my past happened and I cannot forget it but I want to move on and write about other things too and not stay trapped in the misery of my past. And yes, I have to say that I can’t just run away from my mental health problems. I still, of course, have Borderline Personality Disorder and Dissociative Disorder (DDNOS) and these conditions play a big part in my life as they always have done.
I want to be able to write about ‘a little bit of this and a little bit of that’ and have some lighter moments and reflections to balance out the not so good days. Oh, I realize this may be no mean feat but I have therapy every week and that’s where I should be dealing with the skeletons of my life, rather than reliving them over and over in misery here,
So, a fresh start? I do hope so. I intend it to be one. I realize that some of my followers may no longer be interested in what I write about but then, I hope they’ll also be some new ones that hop on board for the ride along with, of course, my stalwart friends who have hung around long enough to see me return.
I’m way behind with all your emails and posts and realistically know that I cannot possibly catch up with all the news of your past week and more so apologies there and I didn’t intend to offend any of you. Hopefully, as my head starts to clear and the stars in the sky shine through the darkness of the night then perhaps both you and I can start to remember a few of our favourite things.
Have missed you and am sending *HUGS* to you all xxx 🙂

Welcome back and I’m glad to see you’ve decided to introduce some new things in your life and here on the blog!
It’s okay to share the pains and traumas of course — but it’s just as important – if not more so – to seek out the happy and great – even the smallest things – because all the little things add up to great stuff.
So Ellie, take your time, breathe – and do what you need to do – to take care of you. And just give yourself a break – no one expects anything (or shouldn’t) other than you be yourself – and that is more than enough 🙂
Hugs to you 🙂
Thank you so much, Pat, for your kind welcome back. Sorry it’s taken me ages to reply – despite my ‘fresh start’, I’m actually not in a good place right now :(. It helps though to have your reassurance and reminder that I can still be myself, however I happen to be . Thank you so much for your hugs. Hugs too xxx ❤
You take the time you need Ellie – and it’s okay. It’s difficult when we feel so much like we’re on a rollercoaster. You need never apologize to me – I understand. Be well my friend. Hugs back to you ❤
