So, a little fun fact about me.
I love to draw!
2 years ago, I started up a small business creating bespoke pieces of art and tattoo designs for people. I put some of my drawings online beforehand and it was a huge hit. It was so empowering and was going so well. I had so much support and encouragement. But then I was hit hard by a huge fibro flare and I've always struggled with anxiety and depression, but it struck me hard out of nowhere.
I completely gave up drawing and shut down my business after only a few months. I stopped believing in myself and fibro took over. I then fell pregnant with my daughter and although illness wise things became better, the trials and tribulations of pregnancy completely took over and ever since I've not had time to go back to it.
I keep getting urges to dig my pencils back out and start again now that my daughter is 1 and a little more independent and my son is older too, but whenever I try to act on that urge there is always some kind of anxiety stopping me or fibro pain.
But I thought I would share with you an example of my artwork. I drew this lion to represent courage with the feathers of freedom. I need to get my courage back one day! My other hobbies are reading, dancing and I sing too. But these have all complete and utterly taken a backseat because of parenting and fibro.
One day I will ignite these passions once more!
Carbs rule everything around me.
This is my adaptation of the Spicy Sriracha Nourish Bowl by @ilovegan. I added peppers and red onion to the kidney beans while I cooked them and adjusted the sauce. Big fat fan of this meal for sure.

If I was a warrior
What would be my weapon
My riches sky and ground
Like the smell of pine
In forests that drip divine
In a blue sky mind
Turn the pages of a story of circles
Where I am that I am
Where all paths join hands in the lands I remember
Where I am returned to my sender
Fully surrounded I surrender
