Some of you may have read my other blog (www.luthienthegreen.wordpress.com) on living with mental illness as a young person. Since I really enjoy blogging, I have decided to start a second. This one will focus more on the aspects of life that I can enjoy in spite of being unwell. I think it’s really important that we speak about mental illness without making it the only thing about us. Some days there really isn’t much else, but I’d like to make the most of the times when there is.
In this blog I am going to share the things I enjoy most, especially seasonal activities, crafts, bullet journaling and fashion. Since I struggle with anorexia, I will avoid posting photos which show body shape and make no reference to sizing, calories etc. and would be glad if you didn’t either! I think these things could be triggering and hold back anyone’s recovery, including my own. However, I do still think that dressing in a way that makes us feel confident can be a huge step towards self acceptance so I will include clothing combinations, tips etc.
I hope you enjoy this blog!
