So validating


I’ve been spending alot of time this weekend reading through comments you’ve all written to me and doing my best to respond to everyone.

One thing that struck me while I was doing this with tears in my eyes. I’m not alone and there are so many incredible people out there in this big bad world, willing, understand and so encouraging.

Alot have described me as having courage, being strong and brave, being inspiring. It feels like the ultimate form of Validation.

It’s also made me realise I need to learn self validation. That I am a good person who toke wrong turns. Working daily to improve my situations, me, my life and that of my children’s. I have only a few friends. But they are amazing.

You have all given me more hope. You’ve given me understanding. You’ve given more more then you’ll ever know.
Thank you doesn’t even come close to the right way to describe what I’m feeling. I’m am and forever will be grateful

    What a beautiful post by KelzBelzPhotography! This is one of the main reasons that I am blogging- not just to share my own writing but to share the lows and highs of others online as I read about their journey. What a wonderful use of social media- to affirm someone who desperately needs building up.


  2. You are not alone and you’ll never be. You touched my heart and i feel that every one of your readers (me included) is sending you a ray of hope, faith and love. So, in your darkest times, you’ll always have the light around you.
    I don’t comment very often but i’m here, by your side, praying for you and celebrating every day of joy, every new sunshine in your life.


  3. Ok so I’m a bit late to this party, so I’ll leave you with this. I’ve been working on doing my best that I’m capable of each day. I’ve read this great book by Don Miguel Ruiz “The Four Agreements.” doing your best each day means that if you’re only capable of 50% today, then give all 50 of it, don’t hold back. Then if your capable of doing more tomorrow, then do more. This releases you from getting into the feeling sorry, or blaming yourself. Let’s face it, we all have our days when we don’t feel like doing things. So why not embrace it. Similarly just as you were able to stop and take in the moment on the beach, that’s what “Doing your Best” will do for you.
    May your joy and life continue to influence and be a beacon of hope for others.


  4. You are amazing. Just for waking up and trying, you are amazing. Don’t stop. You aren’t alone…..and your past doesn’t matter. Keep trying. That makes you better and stronger than everyone else πŸ˜‰ Us BPDs like that idea!!!!

    You are loved, Kelz. The alone times are opportunities to connect with the Universe – to understand what is uniquely ours to do in this life. Reading your blog is freeing, your photos and writing speak to the soul and spirit. May you never feel alone – we’re all in the journey together. Your friend – with love, Missy XXOO
