Back To Blogging!

Back To Blogging!

Hiya lovelies, I hope you all had a fab weekend. We had a rather chilled out one which was very much needed. My anxiety has been flaring up quite badly over the past few weeks so some down time was definitely welcomed. I thought I would pop up a little blog update post as I know up until recently I haven’t really been that active on here or on my socials really. I started up My Little Brushneen Blog over 2 years ago now! My first post was publised on the 9th of May 2017! I can’t quite believe how quickly that time has flown by. I had a quick scroll back through the posts and seeing how much little monkey has grown during that time is incredible. On here I share the ups and downs, struggles and triumphs, the smiles, the tears, adventures and day to day and I’m so glad I found the confidence from somewhere to share my little blog. After our miscarriage earlier this year I had to take a step back though and my return to writing was delayed. The longer I took the harder it became to find the motivation or the desire to post anything. I was unsure if I would share the news on here but I just didn’t feel like I could come back and start doing reviews or write about anything else without acknowledging what had happened. For me the need to talk about it was strong yet at the same time I just didn’t know how to approach it or how to start that post.

It’s Ok To Talk About Miscarraige.

It’s Ok To Talk About Miscarraige.

Some days it will be tougher to put on a brave face, some days will be hard, right now it may feel like most days are a struggle and some times stepping out of that comfort zone will be difficult. Miscarraige is draining, both physically and mentally. Devastating.

Remember….

Although it may not feel like it right now Time is a great healer.

It is ok to take the time needed to heal, don’t rush. It is ok to have ups and downs, It is ok to feel sad, for tears to fall, It is ok to reach out, to ask for help, It is ok to TALK.

Don’t feel like you have to keep it hidden, miscarraige doesn’t have to be a secret. It shouldn’t be so taboo. Talking, It’s not easy and it won’t solve everything but talking, it can really help.

I’m still learning this too

It’s ok.

Miscarriage – Our Story

Miscarriage – Our Story

For weeks now I have been trying to figure out how to start this post, going over and over in my head how to write it the correct way, how to find and piece together the right words and debating whether this is something I should share at all. To be honest I’m still none the wiser. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage, 1 in 4! It’s true i didn’t realise the extent of how taboo miscarriage is until my own. I want to help break the silence by sharing our story.
