The Strong Women


Hey everyone, a slightly different kind of blog for you today, I just wanted to chat tbh.

A few recent experiences in my life and many of my friends have highlighted how much life can challenge you from one day to the next.

I have a habit of carrying the weight of the world on my shoulders, taking responsibility for things that are most certainly not my problem. Maybe because I care too much, or maybe because I use others problems to distract myself from my brain and from the anxiety just waiting to collapse on to me.

Either way, these last few weeks, have shown me how fucking strong my friends are. We have all had a lot going on and its fair to say September well and truly sucked, but through the tears, and the stress of family, friends, careers and life and its challenges, at the end of the day there is a constant flurry of strength and support, giving out endless love and laughter to get you through.

I know some strong, powerful women and I am so lucky to have them as my friends, whether that to be a barrel of laughs no one else understands, a phone call away to rant about the day, to squat with every ounce of strength we have, and something as simple as eating cookies with musicals on to distract you from the day.

Women are strong. Life has it battles, but it is about how you come out on the other side. One bad day does not define you for the rest of your life, and that is a gift we must take full advantage of.

Thanks for listening,

Lots of love,

    I love this! It’s horrible to watch your friends go through challenges you can’t help out with, but amazing to see how they overcome them! xx

    There’s this saying by someone that goes like “Here’s to strong women. May we be them. May we know them. May we raise them.” My mum has it hung up in the kitchen since forever and even as a child, I always admired it. It’s just one of those things that stuck with me I guess. Beautiful post, I admire my friends for being so strong too, some of them have truly lived through the shittiest of times and came out the other end with a smile on their faces. And that is something I aspire to be. xx
