Pasó el día en el trabajo sin saludar a nadie, ni dijo buenos días, ni tampoco tardes cuando dieron las doce. No opinó acerca del aire acondicionado, aunque se estaba helando. De hecho tuvo los audífonos puestos toda la jornada laboral, aunque no estaba oyendo nada. No quería arriesgarse a tener qué contestar que mal si le preguntaban cómo estaba.
It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce my book is finally ready for purchase. This has been a long journey and all that have been through the struggle understand every tear in my eyes that this has finally come to surface. I appreciate all support and hope you enjoy ready my journey.
This little guy always is trying to make us laugh & it's the best. He is always coming up with the silliest things to say & we are loving that little imagination of his. One of Ollie's favorite & easiest snacks to bring on our summer walks are his @GoGosqueeZ YogurtZ pouches! They contain 4g. of protein, no preservatives or high fructose corn syrup & are filled with real low fat yogurt & fruit. They also don't need to be refrigerated, so they are perfect for our long adventure walks around town! I will be doing a giveaway soon with @GoGosqueeZ, so stay tuned! #BeTime#GoGosqueeZPartner
MY MENTAL HEALTH AND EXERCISE
Back in 2016, at my point of real deterioration, I knew I needed to get back into some training. I had been made aware of crossfit and decided to have a go. In most of the sports I had ever taken part in, I would normally pick them up very quickly. When I tried CrossFit, it was not the case at all! I tried it a couple of times and I just couldn’t grasp it. I felt so awful at myself that I just couldn’t do it and that for me was so embarrassing. This was during a time where my mental health was not good and I knew I needed the exercise. But I just couldn’t put myself through the anxiety and the awful feeling afterwards, knowing I wasn’t very good at it. On top of this, I would always compare myself to the other people around me. .
This continued for two years until I finally decided to give it a go properly. I had previously focused too much on what I couldn’t do and I changed my focus to pure enjoyment. I had already enjoyed it the first time I tried it, which is the most annoying part! The more I enjoyed it the more I went and now I’m in a place where I’m far more confident.
Part of the fun became the learning process, something I discovered with some age and wisdom I think. In contribution to this, the environment I was in was always so positive for me. Crossfit isn’t about having the biggest muscles or being the fastest sprinter. Its about working as hard as you can and helping others out around you. .
Exercise is so important for your mental health and for me crossfit is my go to. If ever my mood starts slipping again. I book myself in to the next session and get some work done!
Remember, whatever the exercise you choose, you have to make it something you enjoy, otherwise, you won’t want to do it.
Thank you Crossfit and thank you @shire_fit .
Introduction post!! 💛 •
Hi there, I’m @victorialee7373! I’m mother to Malala-Rae who is going to be 1 next week 😭 I run an online clothing boutique (@petras.wardrobe) which is just a little side hustle at the moment but the dream is for it to be my full time job one day! I started Blood Sweat and Tears because I wanted to see more honesty online when it comes to motherhood. Sure most of the time it’s wonderful and everything I could’ve imagined it would’ve been but sometimes it’s BRUTAL!!!! I just want to create something raw and honest so new mums like me don’t feel so overwhelmed and alone when they’re sitting covered in food and puke at 2am 😂 I’ll be posting blog posts and videos soon so please tell your mum pals and we can all have a good rant about mum life!!! 💛💛💛
I remember a time when I was younger and bullied at school because I had lost my mum.
I was just 7 years old.
There was this one girl who would wait for me at the end of the school day at the gates and walk behind me trying to get a reaction from me.
One day this girl couldn't take it anymore that I wasnt reacting and grabbed me by the hair from behind and the next thing I knew I was on the curbside of a main road.
It was in that moment that I decided I couldn't have close friendships with girls and later on women.
I struggled to trust women.
I hated the drama that women even myself throughout life managed to create by constantly talking about people and things that didnt matter or concern them.
In fact talking about things just made the situation worsen.
It created MORE drama.
You know the whole ' he said, she said'
I just wished we lived in a world where people weren't so cruel (and whilst this post isn't aimed at women directly because believe me it's both sexes that can fall into this scenario) that kindness could just replace any animosity.
Communication plays a vital part because I look back at that scenario now and realise that hurt people hurt people.
I am just a normal human being like everyone else.
I mess up
I get things wrong
I get hurt by unkind words and misconceptions.
But like I said I just wish people would be kinder.
I wish people showed more empathy not just say they have it..... I wish people showed more understanding, not just say they have it.... But above all I wish people would be honest and say what they feel.
If people have upset you and they don't communicate that with you, how are you supposed to be aware and have the opportunity to explain and put things right?
Sadly this girl in my story never had the opportunity to put things right and she probably will never come to know or understand just how miserable she made me feel, all because my mum had passed away.
Recently I've gone through some pretty personal changes and still working through them and it saddens me that yet again I find myself coming to the realisation that people I thought I knew and trusted and had my back, actually dont........
Met a man named ****, de Uruguay, at a meeting of counting to 12. We got dinner. He told me a story about one random Sunday back in 2001 when he was driving $200k of work equipment from Virginia to Boston. It got late so he pulled off at some motel just before Boston to spend the night. But he couldn’t sleep. He was coked out of his mind. And paranoid. He had to keep his eyes on the van because all night people kept coming and going. Driving up, walking to the neighboring room, chatting and leaving. All night: cars footsteps, chatting. Car footsteps chatting. ...sparing the details, he said they were all men. Only men.
Two years later, working the same conference, the 2nd anniversary of 911 was a topic. It all fell into place. These were moments of goodbye. He swears his neighbors must have been the men about to hijack the planes.
We all have stories. We all embellish. To belong. To hide behind. But sometimes stories are true. In fact they always are, at some level. There are always extra details.
Very proud & happy to be a part of this today with the @whysupofficial boys Liam & Mark sharing our experience strength & hope 👇🏻👇🏻👌🏻👌🏻
Week 2 of the Whysup 6 week programme at ‘Bolton Impact Trust - Youth Challenge’. This week we collaborated with @shinnyshowlive who shared his powerful story of crime, addiction and recovery.
We then had an honesty session, where the teachers left the room and we all opened up.
We are loving working with these young people and showing them there is another way.
We believe we can have a huge impact working with this group.
Happy Father’s Day to these two ♥️ so thankful for them both & how they are amazing role models in little Ollie’s life!

I decided to cut back all my Lunaria annua on Monday evening. It's getting a good battering from the weather and I'm really hoping to dry those beautiful seed heads for display in the Winter months. So this lovely bunch will hang inside the shed until those green pods turn into silvery paper beauties ❤ p.s it also gives me room to plant out spare cut flowers seedlings in the border!

#honesty ✋🏻❤️✋🏻❤️ #mentalhealthawareness and #outreach post✋🏻❤️✋🏻❤️.
A couple nights ago I came to a moment mentally where I WAS NOT okay.
All of sudden the move, my re entry into college , my kids, my new jobs, my hustle , my struggle in my personal relationships .. all of it ... hit me like a damn freight train all at once. I sat paralyzed in traffic.. triggered.. crying.. hyperventilating..feeling my resilience slipping away and so... I followed my fallout plan ... and I did something I always tell you guys to do. #ireachedout .
I put out a call to my works free over the phone counseling and just.. opened up over the phone.. and ya know what! I felt so much better after. This is not a super epic share square , but what it is ... is me telling you... to reach out.. if you need support. You are worthy of the help. You are worthy of feeling safe. You are worth feeling like you have time and space to manage your #mentalhealth .
Let’s show our community some support y’all.
Put a ✋🏻up in the comments if you are hear to host space for someone who needs someone.
Put a ❤️ up in the comments if you are someone who needs someone to host some for you.
Happy Wednesday Kittens , remember .. #youareworthy .
Head to toe @modcloth
