161.366 Negative Head Space

I've wanted to shoot this image for ages- it isn't original by any means, but I like it :)


I'm sticking to regular uploads as part of ongoing mental health therapy- every little helps :)


This post sort of elaborates on the theme of my last one, thanks by the way to everyone who reached out- I am ok- really, I am fine. The lyrics were to verbalise a state of mind I often find myself in.


I don't know that i have ever been body confident. I have PCOS so all of my teenage and most of my 20's was spent battling hair, and then through my 30's it has been weight.


When I think about the size of the Universe and the size of the Earth and then me, I realise just how small I am in the whole balance of life. I have no idea how many cycles around the Sun I am destined to have, but I know that I really have to get a grip with negative head chatter...that ongoing internal dialogue that sees the smallest of detail and points it out in a very loud internal voice. If I made a transcript of that voice and imagined it was being said to me (not by me) I would definitely call it abusive. And yet, so it goes for hundreds of thousands of millions of people, every day, tuning in to the wrong frequency.


When actually:


Change the bits you can change and stop worrying about things you have no control over.
