Photo Story: Hiking with Lebenatem

Yesterday was quite the interesting day for me.

I was a bit of a mess.

I felt frustrated, discouraged, exhausted, angry, and sad.

Recently I have been trying to post here on Mondays and Thursdays… but my awful day ruined that goal.

It’s hard meeting setbacks in your mental health journey.

It’s hard paying doctors a lot of money only for them to not help you at all.

It’s hard doing this for a week, much less for years on end.

Rather than spend time blogging about these frustrations, I decided today to dive straight into remembering a beautiful day and a beautiful mood.

This weekend I spent a lovely day hiking with my love, and we had quite a wonderful afternoon. I was surrounded by beauty, and completely saturated with things I love:

Warm sunshine

Warm breeze through my hair

Beautiful green grass

Happy puppy love



Muddy boots

Blooming flowers


If you are struggling today, maybe go back through your recent photos and remember a happy day you’ve experienced.

Delve straight into that memory and let it cleanse your mood.

And if you’re unable to find a happy memory of your own, here’s one of mine. 🙂 Enjoy.
