Blue Chameleon - Let's Race

Following my previous blog post, I agreed to take part in the Race for Life 5k event to raise money for Cancer Research.  Having known Katherine and Emily for a while and being touched by their story, I approached them to join the #TeamEmily pink army.  There were several asking to join the team to run on behalf of Emily and before we all knew it, the members topped 57!  The pain staking task of entering everyone in the system under one team, ordering t-shirts and sorting meeting points were met as volunteers quickly assembled together.  Team Emily was born...

Blue Chameleon - Meet Emily

 Meet Emily.  She’s fun loving, happy, confident young lady with a smile that will melt your heart.  Having met Emily through my children’s school and with her mum being my son’s nursery leader, I had the privilege of a cheerful wave every time our paths crossed.  Emily was always looking out for the little ones as well as those who needed a friend.  Kindness personified, selfless and polite to boot!   Then a cloud moved in.   As her mum, Katherine explains in her “My Emily” blog, on the 11th of December 2015 Emily was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.  She...

Things are heating up here in the UK! Summer has arrived!  School is nearly out and BBQ’s everywhere are responsible for atrocities made towards sausages, Ah British summer!

Who doesn’t love to shop right?  Well there are some out there who find the whole idea of summer clothes dreadful.  Body consciousness is still a major issue in the world today and even with self-love movements, there...

Blue Chameleon - Another Box Ticked

As July approaches quickly, I find myself face to face with a frustrated teen who’s closing out her first year in secondary school. I have sat back in awe and watched her go from a shy, quiet girl who kept to herself, to this confident, gabby, young lady in the space of 6 months. She had a rocky start to secondary and to be honest, who doesn’t? It was a big change for anyone but for Leah it really tested her anxiety with crowds, noise and “teenagers”. However, she ploughed through her worries and emerged victorious as she overcame each...

Blue Chameleon - There Is Always Good

It would be dishonest of me to write a blog about finding happiness and not talk about the tough times in between.  It comes part and parcel with life of course but when you have pre-existing mental health, I can’t expect it not to creep up here and there.  I covered details of setbacks before and to be fair, I want to spend more time talking about other things.  My issues with Anxiety will always be a part of me somehow, no matter how happy I am.  The sleepless nights, lying awake worrying about things that cannot possibly be fixed...
