Congratualtions, OMG, that is so awesome that you did the marathon and in better time than you thought with little preparation, that is so good, well done!
I am so happy to hear that even though it made you feel a little uncomfortable you went to the party, that is so brave and so great that you are pushing yourself to do things that scare you a little and you found out, that they are fine. I am so proud of you, that is awesome.
The vegan diet is going so well, I really can't believe I feel so good and have so much energy and am actually still sticking to it tbh. It has been ok as I have been pretty prepared and have shopped well so that I don't have any traps in the house. The kids are still eating meat and eggs so I still have to cook that for them, which is fine as I don't want to force this on them. But it is going really well.
I am glad that you feel that you can be supportive to your ex and it not impact your MH too much, that is really nice that you want to support her. I feel like you are in a much stronger place and are managing this ok, that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel???
It is so smoky here today in Melbourne and I can hardly see out the window, the fire alarms are in active mode in the building and just ready to go off, so who knows what today will bring...it is so horrific and I just really can't believe it. Also here talking to others and the pain and suffering and what they have lost, just absolutely heart wrenching.....
Music really is the happiest place to be, what does Frankie Valli say about you, that you have character and soul...I think whatever speaks to you and makes you feel good, or even sometimes sad is ok too.
Have a great day and please dont feel bad for not chatting every day, I am always here and you chat as you need to xx
