Magical Mummyness

:::

I've felt so dumpy lately. Trying hard to stay positive and not dwell on the negative, but I guess really it is ok to have a pity party, as long as I can move on from it.  I talked to my Mum on the phone for about 40mins this morning and she some how has the ability to turn around my outlook and make me feel better.  She is able to be encouraging without being condescending and really seems to understand just how I feel.  She has her three month appointment tomorrow and I hate so much that I can't be there with her (I have a test worth 30% of my final mark) I just want to do whatever I can to support her in the ways she supports me.  We decided today that we are taking a trip out East (or ANYWHERE) on my week off in September.  She is always the one who is taking care of everyone else, putting her needs aside.  I want to do this with her, something fun, we have never really done a road trip before, and I think this will be great for us. She so needs an adventure and I want to be the co-pilot, the partner in crime!

Your Mum sounds like an amazing woman - you're very lucky.

And you're so bang on about it being ok to have a pity party as long as you can move on from it. From my experience, it's when you find too much comfort in that pity and darkness that it becomes dangerous. I find that a really good balance of everything helps immensely - friends, foods, writing, reading, etc.

But it could be different for everybody - just my two cents :)

Oh, that's sweet. It sounds like your mom is a doll. How nice to have someone reliable in a world like this.
