I opened up a new paint document and started making a picture. I’m not very good at arty things but on paint you can use premade shapes and it’s just a matter of clicking.

Turns out it really calmed me down. Just thinking about how the stars fit together, deciding which colours should go where.

It’s pretty simple but helpful. I’d recommend it. I might buy one of those colouring books, I think that would be useful for me when I’m feeling overwhelmed. Just to calm me down and take me away from my thoughts.coloured starsNow I’m actually going to bed,

Lots of love

p.s. Just noticed the mistake in my stars picture. Nothing’s perfect!!

    Stand Strong You Are Not Alone
    I call you a survivor, because that is what you are.
    There are days when you don’t feel like a survivor and there are days when the memories trigger your past and it feels like you are loosing the fight – but you are not. Take the past and heal with it. You are strong. I want you to know that the abuse was not your fault. It does not matter what age it happened. You did not deserve it, you did not cause it, and you did not bring it on yourself. You own no shame, guilt, or remorse.
    In your life, you have faced many demons but look around you and you will see there is hope, and there is beauty. You are beautiful, You are loved, there is hope. You deserve to be loved and treated with respect. You deserve peace and joy in your life. Don’t settle for anything less than that. God has plans for you. Your future does not have to be dictated by your past.

    Each step you take you are not alone.
    Stand Strong.

    Can’t believe this, Ellie! I have a colouring book, too! 🙂 Idea came from my sister who also has one (both of us have depression) I thought I always draw small flowers when I feel overwhelmed or really low so maybe I should try the colouring book because it’s also monoton and repetitive without the need to concentrate on creating something. I had a colleauge who used videogames for the same reason when she was down.

    Great idea! I’ll definitely get one.. I realised that painting stuff helps me but most times I can’t “overcome” myself to draw or do anything myself. A colour book is the perfect solution.
    Take care xxx
