Outward bound….

Good weather on the way through to Easter here in the UK. We’ve lost the cold easterly winds that have plagued us recently and we can look forward to some nice, warm temperatures and some sun.

Yesterday I watched my first piece of live cricket action here in the UK. Peace and quiet, getting out and about and just listening to the sound of bat on ball, the occasional shriek of “Howzat” at the umpire, and the birds tweeting merrily. As I’ve alluded to before, my idea of heaven, when I eventually get there.

It did me a lot of good. Delving back into that well-being toolkit to help me out of these problems is something I’ve done many times before, and will do so again. What’s happened over the last few months has been a combination of helplessness, grief and desolation. That all came out last Friday. The world looks slightly better this week.

Today, I’ve seen my CBT counsellor and also bumped into an old colleague of mine from peer support. We had a good long chat and hopefully things might start to change for her as well.

Getting out and about, escaping from the problems, starting to enjoy a few things again. It’s a tough old world out there but that well-being toolkit is very beneficial. It’s helping me to recover after a series of punches have seen me stagger to the ground. Think it’s called experience….
