Hello there, It's Elaine,
Lost a dear friend to suicide at age 16 and the ramifications of that loss turned into the gift that kept me living. Through some pretty dark shit... For almost 2 decades, hospital beds and nurses became more familiar than family. Now I want to re-gift to others so they 'Keep Breathing'
Its a bit more complicated... It's Life.. It's messy, it's got ups & downs and damn it.... It's all we have!
I'm gonna give you the good the bad and the ugly... I hope in all it provides some value for someone...
So... Keep Breathing! and Make your day amazing it's your choice
This is from a stand up comedy set in Ottawa Canada on May 11th 2019. This is getting out of your comfort zone in a BIG way! Thank you to Felice Miranda and Ari Black for the spot on the roster of the Don't Quit Your Day Job Comedy Night at One Up Club above the Royal Oak on Beechwood .
Here's to you getting at least a little chuckle!
The original stand up outing at Yuk Yuks is on my website..
The holidays can be tough, when you are missing someone, or a few someone's it can make the holidays even tougher. Use your good memories to help you make it through ♥
My hope for you is to make it through and have many joyful moments to savour.
In this episode I talk about using your good memories to help you stay positive. To help craft your reality, to mold your choices, to decide on your outlook.
You can only change you. You and your perception can be molded to choose a more positive outlook.
Start with even one good memory and like beads struck together to make a necklace, you can make a virtual string of memory beads, to pull out and savour in times of need.
A useful little tool to have in your life toolbox and of course as always..
CMHA says "Mental health is about more than mental illness
It’s more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life, and managing life’s highs and lows. Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. And we all need a support system to lean on."
This is my intro to give you a sense of what i'll be talking about... often a little tongue in cheek.. always lookin' for the good stuff! there's a pony in there somewhere! I'll tell you about that too.. thanks for listening in
