Christmas starts with Christ


I went to Mass with my husband and children this evening, it was a lovely service.

It is this time of year that I think about my religion and if I have been a good teacher to my children. It is important that they know the story of Christmas rather than thinking it is all about presents.

There are so many unhappy and stressed people wondering round the shops trying to find the perfect gifts in the hope that will give them the perfect Christmas. If this is what you are aiming for then unfortunately you will be disappointed. Trying to create that perfect Christmas just leads to more stress.

Relax and find out what the real story of Christmas is….

I wish you all a great stress free and relaxed Christmas.

God bless.


Christmas, I am truly blessed.

Christmas is upon us once again. All I have left to do is wrap the presents and put them under the tree. I love watching my children open their presents on Christmas day. I am truly blessed.

This year I feel positive about Christmas, this has been a long time coming. Normally I feel too depressed and struggle with my eating disorder and the impulsive behaviour associated with my borderline personality disorder.

This year, I want things to be different for my children and husband. I want to be the ‘perfect’ mother and wife. But perfection is so hard to achieve.

Something has changed, I do not feel like the failure that I believed I was last Christmas and the Christmas before that etc. I have done everything with my children in mind and given myself a good kick when starting to feel sorry for myself. I have also started to accept the more ‘negative’ emotions I have and tell myself that it is ok to feel the way I do and not try to brush them under the carpet and pretend they are not there. So it is OK if I am not that ‘perfect’ a mother and wife after all.

It is OK to be me because no matter how difficult things feel at times I know they will pass and leave me and my husband and children will always be there for me. I am truly blessed.

Merry Christmas
