I have a love of rainbow, pastel and sparkles, as I think you can guess from my pictures and Instagram. Though I have found the older I get, I really don’t know where I fit in, or should I even worry about fitting in?!
Anxiety has always gnawed at my life since I can remember, and as much as I know, you shouldn’t care about what other people think, even at 35 I do!
If I’m not worrying about what people think or if they like me, I’m worrying about loved ones or myself. Sometimes my brain is just a fairground of anxiety!
This is where the wonderful creatures of cats come in. Did you know that cats can reduce stress? Just 15 to 30 minutes a day with your lil fur baby can calm and help with your mood and wellbeing!
My beautiful baby Lester, sadly died this February (two days before my mum’s anniversary of her passing) and my heart was broken. We still haven’t got a new fur baby, but I know I can’t wait for my new kitty buddy to love and both help each other out.
My baby Lester.
I feel that need to just cuddle up with a cat, and tell them my problems. (I know they can’t answer back) I know the day we finally get our new lil baby I will feel a lot more calmer and happier.
On a side note, shout out to the beautiful human Sugar and Sloth, for her amazing work on fighting the stigma of mental illness with beautiful bins, bags and t-shirts and much more. I love her Narhwal rainbow anxiety pin! It sums me up to a T.
And a final note, always live a rainbow life even in the gloom, remember you are amazing and loved, let’s also remember to take care of each other. It can sometimes be the one who is the life and soul of the party, who is hiding the hurt 💖

Life would be a dull place if we all conformed to the ‘norm & who defines normal? You are warm, honest & funny & fun so keep being you.
On the cat front, you’re absolutely right about how calming they can be – my daughter’s anxiety is fighting back & the cat seems to be aware & paying her extra positive attention – clever kitty x

Ah thank you Jill for taking the time to read my blog and give such a lovely comment. Yes I am sure kitty can sense it, they just know, and know when extra love is needed. Thank you again lovely 💖
