You may have noticed I didn’t share a Little Victories blog post for March or for April. Well, this was because March and April weren’t particularly great for me. I struggled to think of a single positive thing to write about.

To be honest, May was a pretty awful month as well with the passing of my nan. However, I am determined to keep this series going because I love it, and know reflecting on the little things in life can really help me with my mental health.

And when I sat down and started to think about the positive things that had happened last month, I was surprised at how many good things happened.

Statue of Liberty, New York

The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a blur. They’ve been tough.

Last week my Nan passed away. It came as a shock to us all, even though she was in hospital recovering from a broken hip at the time. She seemed to be making great progress and we thought it wouldn’t be long before she could return home.

I took a couple of days off work after her passing, mainly to look after myself and to focus on my mental health, and I feel like it did help me somewhat. My parents were on holiday at the time of my Nan’s passing and I had to pick them up from the airport when they returned. It wasn’t easy.

An acne update

It’s been three years since I last wrote a post about my acne, and considering my acne posts are some of my read posts I thought it was worth giving you an update.

So yes, I still have acne. No shock there. I’ve now been suffering with the condition for over a decade.
