My 100 Day Project for 2018

The 100 Day Project 2018 BLOG

It's that time of the year again: The 100 Day Project has started and I am so excited about it this year!

I first heard about this incredible challenge in 2015, soon after falling ill, and decided it was a good way to keep busy while I recovered at home. (At that point I did not think I would still be at home 3 years later!)

I try to take part each year, but I have yet to complete a whole 100 days. I am hopeful and quite determined that 2018 will be my year to finish it. I'm changing it up this year and can't wait to share my project with you!

A Community for ME/CFS Bloggers and Patients

Join the ME CFS Community, ChronicallyHopeful #MEcfs #pwME #SupportGroup

When I was first diagnosed with ME/CFS, I felt lost. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was a condition I had never heard of before and my doctor didn't seem to know much about it either. What got me through was the support of other patients I found online. And they continue to be my support as the years go by! For this reason I have created an ME/CFS community online.

It consists of a few places on social media where bloggers, vloggers and other content creators with ME/CFS (and their carers) can share their content to help support the ME/CFS community better.

My hope is that newly diagnosed patients, or anybody struggling to manage life with ME, would not struggle as much as some of us have to find the support and resources available to them.

Bullet Journal Layout, March 2018

March 2018 Bujo layout BLOG

My journaling has evolved much over the past few years since I discovered the Bullet Journal system. I love that this method is so flexible and streamline. The fact that my BuJo can be whatever I want it to be and if I change my mind or my style from one week to the next, it's perfectly fine and it still works!

At the start of this year I ordered a beautiful new journal, my goal was to start this year in style, but chronic illness is quite unpredictable and I ended up not really getting started on anything until now. I hope you will enjoy this little tour through this month's layout in my new Bujo - I love it and cannot wait to use it daily!

Quotes and Bible Verses to Share, from Feb 2018

Feb 2018 Freebies Quotes and Bible verses BLOG

In February I changed things up on my Instagram and created what I call a rainbow of positivity. My Bible verses and quotes now have plain backgrounds and span a lovely range of colours. I love how bright and cheerful they look and the encouraging messages they carry.

Here are all the Quotes and Bible Verse graphics I made and shared on social media in February. You are welcome to download any of these images.

Update: When Intention, Creativity and Chronic Illness Collide

When intention, creativity and chronic illness collide, BLOG

This month has been quite productive! I can't believe it's almost gone already. I'm once again taking part in this thought-provoking monthly link-up with Sheryl from A Chronic Voice. I love the prompts she comes up with each month - they really force me to consider things I might not otherwise think about and perhaps, in a way, that helps to keep me focused and accountable too. This month's prompts are:

  1. Adapting - to intentional rest and fasting
  2. Practicing - watercolour blending
  3. Realising - it's hard to stick to a schedule
  4. Celebrating - a year since my parents moved to the UK
  5. Inviting - other chronic illness warriors to share their story
