Some days are better than others and when it happens to be one of the others I like to practice glam looks and sit on my bedroom floor in pretty dresses. I let myself cry it out and then I take all my hard work off my face and go to bed knowing that tomorrow is a new day. Tonight I also reflected on how there's beauty in the broken. #onestepatatime
Kia ora whānau,
Another appointment done n dusted with Mick from Body Logic. It’s been brilliant having a specialist perspective on my injury to give peace of mind and better understanding on my road to recovery.
Walking into my appointment today I felt a little deflated and unsure after tweaking my shoulder several times over the past week. I feel like I’ve got zero strength when trying to work my shoulder muscle groups and was very interested in gaining more insight on what I need to do moving forward.
Afterwards I left feeling more optimistic and relieved after some more sound advice. It’s expected to take months to recover, however we’ve got a game plan and it’s time to get to work.
Thanks again Mick McBeth for your sound advice and services. An amazing local business that I’d recommend to anyone. Let the road to recovery begin!!! “Fall down seven times. Stand up 8”
This bad boys getting finished tomorrow. There are so many emotions for me that come with getting this tattoo.
First is the biggest mandala is for my daughter Emma who passed away. My life will never be the same knowing she is not here with us. There is such a heavy burden in my heart I know I will carry for the rest of my life until I see her again.
The second is that the tattoo also covered up my scars from when I suffered from multi organ failure last year delivering my youngest daughter. I had a few scars I needed covered that I felt was the final chapter in my road to recovery. I should not be here today and yet I am. We have been through so much in these last two years. Here’s to hoping there are better things in store for us! #inked#inkedgirls#inkinspiration#momswithtattoos#inkedmom#momlife#scars#hellpsyndrome#survivor#mourning#lifewithgirls#myworld#onestepatatime#tattoo#tattooedgirls#chesttattoo#thisisme
Dirk & I always fantasized about this.
Yes of course we often sit inside behind a desk.
With the fan on😊🌴
But on this beautiful day with a little breeze the hammock and the pool 1 jump away is a nice option😄🌴
And to think that only a short while ago this time of year Dirk would walk around in a thick warm jacket wondering if there would ever be a time again that customers would come into our restaurant after the busy summer....
And I would be biking from client to client as a social worker, stressed and underpaid .. not sure If my job would still exist in some months ... .
Funny what can happen if you decide to creat a different life🙂
To be continued next week. ——
I tend to not post all of my art, but I think I’ll start doing it to remind myself that while I’m sleeping and procrastinating, there are those who are working hard and striving for perfection. #Dessin#pencil#onestepatatime#Perseverance
