The First Day... The First post

Hello. It's me. It's been a while. After a humongous break I am back!

It's been a full on year, and I've had my head down while I've been doing some intensive work to process a year full of trauma preceding that. And here I am starting to come out of the other side.

I've decided to rename this blog The First Day, because I been thinking a lot about new beginnings. Each day is the First Day of the rest of your life, and no matter what happens yesterday or the day before we can wake up every morning with the chance to start again. 

I'm in mental health recovery right now - which I'll post more about down the line - and sometimes it can be two steps forward and one step back...so each day is the First Day of how I feel right now.

I'm also learning to be: live in the moment, live mindfully (more of which to follow I am also sure), not worry about the things I can't do anything about; to slow down. It's revolutionary, when I remember to put it into practice.

Expect a range of posts - opinion. topical commentary, reviews, features, interviews... and if you want me to cover anything get in touch!
