I must admit, I was a bit nervous to live alone. Something about being completely submerged in your own thoughts. However, the past few days have shown me how much I missed tapping into myself. I recently took the 16 personalities test for the first time. [My results: Mediator INFP-T] I’m almost equally split between introverted & extroverted. Happy to nourish my introverted side and tap into my creative pursuits more often. Last night, I picked up my guitar for the first time in weeks and restored an old bench for my apartment. While this melodramatic photo may not show it, I’m pretty damn stoked on life right now. Yay for uphill mental health!

Tonight we learned that Ember has a few mammary tumours, she will need to have surgery to determine whether or not the tumours are malignant or benign. She's had a tough life and we've been blessed to have her in our lives. So here's hoping the rumours are benign; we are going to make the rest of her days as wonderful as we can regardless of how many days are left.
#RU2C - This month I’ve signed up to Run Up To Christmas 🎄🎅🏼 🏃🏻♂️
I’ve joined 4000 other runners to pledge to keep moving in the cold, wet and windy month of December. There are a few things I love about this initiative -
✅ You set your own goals (I’ve pledged to run a modest 100km, but others have committed to less or in some cases a lot more!)
✅ The sense of fun and community - the organisers do a fantastic job of engaging those participating on social media and there are lots of fun competitions throughout the month too
✅ Its all in support of Mind - an incredible mental health charity and promotes the benefits of keeping active and healthy and the benefits it can have on mental wellbeing .
It may be too late to officially join us now, but follow the #ru2c hashtag to keep up with all the fun!! 🎅🏼 .
