Hard times don’t last!

“Nothing is permanent not even our troubles.”

Have you ever had that feeling, where you feel like you could burst or cry from excitement? I’ve got that feeling and it’s taken what feels like forever to feel like that again!

I am well and truly getting better. “Hello world, I’m back!”

I am super excited to become a part time student and will be studying a diploma in Nutritional Medicine. That means I will become a Nutritionist once I’ve finished! This is my dream job! If you had told me this would be happening a year ago, I would have been completely upset as there was no way. Dreams of living an active life were impossible. Now I feel like anything is possible I’m out and about every couple of days and not paying too much for it!

Before I got sick Cameron and I were saving our money furiously to buy our first home. When I got sick this goal was still in our sights but I’ll be honest I became terrified about buying a house. We spent a lot of time and effort to make this goal happen, only to be knocked back. We were right at the point of going through the purchasing process. It was devastating! All that time, effort and energy we had put in for a negative result. Unfortunately it was out of our control. It was just not meant to be at this point of our lives.

Re-focusing on the positives we poured our energy into other goals that had been side lined. Since then Cameron has started up his own business as an electrician and I will now be a student! These goals would have been much harder for us to achieve whilst having a mortgage. At the time it was upsetting but now I’m glad that it happened.

Dealing with my illness at the beginning I felt like my life was over. Now I see it as an obstacle pointing me into a new direction. Everything happens for a reason. I may not be able to control what happens, but I can control how I react! As Justice Crew would say Que Sera! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MDTCF1dp28

Bye for now

Hi, I'm Lennae and welcome to my world! I started this blog back in 2013 when I became unwell with ME/CFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). I have since recovered from the illness and found I was back to full health by 2017. I started this blog to document my health journey along the way. . Since I have recovered from ME/CFS, I have enjoyed sharing the other chapters in my life including becoming a Mama, studying and the relocation back to my homeland NZ. As well as travel adventures, recipes and other positive influences along the way. I hope you enjoy my part of the world. Please don't be shy and drop me a line, I would love to hear from you!
