Posting YOUR reasons

It’s nearing 2 years. Since I promised to give life a go. In the past year we have posted 130 reasons so far. Thank you Tamara, Hadas, Ricky, Dan and Sharon for posting your reasons. My goal for the 19th of October 2019 is to have 250 reason posts. Meaning a reason every 3 days or so. I can’t do that on my own and would love your help getting there. If you are happy to post a reason on my blog- be it just the once, or be it however often you want – like (bi)monthly/(bi)weekly, please be in touch!

Letter to myself: You aren’t guilty.


I love you. I’m proud of you. Even as you get upset with your sister. I’m proud of you. I love you. Even as you hate that you’ve eaten too much. I love you even as you hate your body. I don’t know why you do. It’s kinda more recent. Maybe transference? I love you Eliza. Whatever you do or don’t do, I love you. And am proud of you. I wish I had a magic wand.

One Hundred and Forty Five: Going Down When You’re Up

I’ve had this reason swirling in my mind for a while. It’s not really a reason, but at the same time, it is.

This summer I was going through a particularly hard time. One day, as I was swimming in the sea, and I was getting very tired from the current, I thought to myself “What if I just stay here? Let the water overtake me? Wouldn’t that just be better?” Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Five: Going Down When You’re Up”

One Hundred and Forty Three: The bottles of water

Random acts of kindness 101. Bottled water.

We were driving down the road and saw these stacks of bottles.

Bottled Water, Stack Of Bottles, Brecon Carreg

The guy there offered us some, just because.

Bottle, Brecon Carreg, Sea, Water, Bottled Water, Beach

He took a pack of 24 and placed it in the boot of our car. Being that I only drink bottled water this was/is a real favour for me. He actually offered me more, and more, but I was too shy to accept.

It was a random act of kindness that showed me, hey, there are some really nice people in this world. (reminds me of my WATWB posts 1 2 3)

What act of kindness has someone done for you today or can you do for someone else today?


One Hundred and Forty Two: 20 Questions to Ask Yourself if You Feel Like Giving Up (reblog)

Once again I’m reblogging an article from Your Life Your Voice. I love what I’ve found on there. My post 13 reasons why not is from there, too.

I thought this was really helpful. I think I should dress up now! Put on makeup, curl my hair (and post a selfie on here???) Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Two: 20 Questions to Ask Yourself if You Feel Like Giving Up (reblog)”

Surviving California Fire! Reason One Hundred Forty One

Surviving California Fire!

Surviving a major Natural Catastrophe, such as the Northern California, Camp Fire, that burned over 100,000 acres of forestry, including over six thousand residential homes, and many businesses, nearly wiping out the entire town, just two days ago, is a reason to live!

Trying to drive faster than the flames could catch me, with my Australian Shepherd, two meowing cats, and one hay-munching bunny Continue reading “Surviving California Fire! Reason One Hundred Forty One”

Naps! One Hundred Thirty Eight


Just as I am about ready to drift off to sleep, the most peaceful feeling comes over me. In this lovely state of tranquility, all is well, and there is great hope for the future. All things are possible for everyone! There is reason to believe, trust, and rejoice! God dwells within me, continuosly, and He cares for my loved ones.

Drifting off into sleep is a reason to celebrate life!
