Try something new ... and don't give up!
Those of you who have heard me speak recently will know that I presented at the international Marce Society conference in Australia last September (see my blog entries for then). http://www.marcesociety.com/
I stayed at Manly on the outskirts of Sydney. It was a beautiful seaside resort.
Little did I know that a few months later I would be watching their Sea Eagles Rugby League team play Leeds Rhinos at a chilly Elland Road stadium! It was the final of the World Club Challenge.
I have never been a sports spectating fan of any game but recently have gone along to Leeds Rhinos games with Clive. I confess the very idea of doing such a thing did not appeal to me in the slightest - but I have learnt that it is a question of 'don't knock it until you've tried it!' It's a whole new world for me! Fish and chips in the street; wearing a team shirt and yelling 'Cum on Jamie' from the stands!I loved it!
Only problem was .. we lost ... but the boys put up a good fight.
See the game details here ..
I remembered that when I was poorly with postnatal depression being out in crowds really terrified me and I would have a panic attack. So I take nothing for granted these days.
If you are suffering at the moment - try something new .. because you never know, you might just like it! And keep on with the hope .. because one day .. you will feel better.
