Believe:

Verb

  1. to accept that [something] is true, especially without proof.
  2. to hold [something] as an opinion.
  3. to think.

“She believed she could get better and she did.”

Belief that recovery was possible was very important for me during the worst times of my illness. As hard as it was, without proof, I always did believe that I could and would recover.

A positive belief goes a long way and is the best starting point to any aspect of life.

So BELIEVE you can and you will….

 

Happy New Year!

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2016!

I hope you all had a wonderful festive season. I last posted back in November just as Mr B and I went off on our honeymoon to Australia and New Zealand. We had the most amazing month of relaxing, exploring, walking, swimming, eating and drinking. It literally was the holiday of a lifetime. And mostly my energy stayed strong and ME/CFS behaved, more on that in a future post.

We got home early December and were immediately fully submerged in the whirlwind that is the Christmas season, hence the blog silence.

But now with the new year just begun, there is time to sit and breathe again. And I thought I’d take this opportunity to relive some of my favourite holiday moments by sharing some of our photos – a somewhat lazy, on my part, first blog post of the year, I’m easing myself back into reality – but fun for me and I hope enjoyable and uplifting for those of you reading this too. This is just a taster, we have 100s of pictures!

Happy New Year everyone!
