The Blurt #buddybox

Last week I had some rather amazing post.

Admittedly I had ordered this Blurt buddy box for myself, but I had forgotten and it came at just the right moment:

There are all sorts of reasons moving house is stressful, and I find it to say the least, difficult. It tests my wellness to the limit.

So the buddy box is a delight. There are lots of really lovely things in it. Not just coloured pencils, but nice coloured pencils. And the same goes for all the items. I am especially enjoying the sleep balm. I’m not sure it is making any difference to my sleep, but it smells lovely and is very comforting.

Buddy boxes, while worth the money, given the contents, are not cheap and I couldn’t see any of my family buying a subscription for me, even if they really wanted to, they just don’t have the cash.

I wonder if there might be any way of subsidising the cost, perhaps companies might like to get in board and donate nice things.

Any way, I think it’s is a stroke of genius in the part if Blurt and I hope they are able to continue with them.

I think I might ask my family to buy me a line off one as a birthday present.

Dealing with #anxiety #depression and #stress is a but like climbing Ben Nevis

Years ago, before I went to university,  I climbed Ben Nevis with some friends.
If you ever have, you will know that you get to a number of “summits”, ridges that could for all intent and purpose, be the top.
But when you get to it, you realise there is much further to go.
In the same way, being well is a journey, and not one for the Hare, rushing to what looks like the finish line, only to find it isn’t and then having a set back because there are no resources for the next climb.
Wellness is a Tortoise game.
We climb, knowing that there will be fresh challenges ahead, taking our time, using what we have learnt, and enjoying the view as we go.
