Total joy pond dipping for 10s of minutes at a time. Today the neighbours children came over and the boys shared round 2 of pond happiness! The four of them had the best time together catching newts in tubs and chatting wildlife, creating memories that will always belong to “that time at Grandma and Grandads”. Priceless.
I have realised that singing is probably what brings me more joy in life. I had a band in 2011, when I already had some mental issues, but I struggled as hell to live and accomplish my dreams. In 2013, I got my diagnosis, I was very ill. It was hard to do the simple or mandatory things, how could I study for a hobbie? Actually, I couldnt do anything at that time. In 2014, I got into a toxic relationship that would never give me the peace and freedom I need to make connections and be on a stage. In 2016, I was retired and lost. I couldnt recall anything that made me happy before. In 2017, I broke up with the psychological abuser and I started remembering who I am little by little. It does not happen overnight. Months later, I felt I wanted to sing and started making videos at home. In the last months, I have been making friends that are musicians, teachers and music fans. And one step at a time I am doing it.
I wanna have my own band again, but I am respecting my proccess and time. I am happy to have moved foward, although I thought I was doing nothing. But watching this video makes me remember who I am, who I can be, who I wanna be.
Dont allow your dreams to be forgotten forever..... How to make them happen? I am still figuring out and each one of us shall have a different way.
Send me your good energies 😍 Who knows I will post videos of my own band soon?
And thank you: Learning with you is very important for all this.

Continuing on my recent theme of abstract and trying to look for the more intimate landscape images, I took myself off down to Chesil Beach this afternoon. I was looking yet again for texture and shape in the things that caught my eye. I loved taking my time, slowly walking along, seeing what drew my attention and, especially with the image of the pebbles (something which Chesil is best known for), I felt a theme of the search for freedom developing in my mind and almost without knowing, this emerged in the images I captured. I hope you like this direction some of my recent work has taken as I feel it's important in the development of a photographer to look beyond the obvious and try new things, even if they don't always work out. As always, thanks for looking. :) #portlanddorset #chesilbeach #dorsetlife #dorset #seascapes #closeupphotography #allthesmallthings #lookdown #landscapephotography #trynewthings #portlanddorset
“Hi! Nice to meet you!”
Tentative first steps (today is the first time they’ve even been in the same room!)
I often ask my self why I do what I do. Does if feed my soul? Does it make me smile? Will the images I create, touch someone, and make them smile? I really do hope so. This session was everything to me. I walked away thinking to myself, THIS is why I do what I do. THIS is why I changed my style. THIS has just fed my soul. Mum said to me when she sat down, that this was her last baby and thus the last time she would be breast feeding. I was able to give her these images to look back on. For me, its not always about looking at the camera. It's about the connection! The touches! The way your babies gaze at you, and the moments that we often are to busy to see. 🧡 @mrsconstancehall
thank you allowing me to give you these images x
The extensors of the forearms are often overlooked but are critical components in hand/wrist/elbow health. Sit at a desk all day typing? Extensor work. Tennis elbow or carpal tunnel? Extensor work. Limp-wristed weirdo? I dunno, call Dr. Phil...then do extensor work.
Step 1: buy 50pack from random Chinese company fulfilled by Amazon.
Step 2: pretend to use it and recommend to all of your clients, friends, strangers, pets, etc.
Step 3: actually use it. Place on fingers. Start with flexed wrist. Extend fingers. Cry about being weak. Extend wrist. Cry some more.
Step 4: be consistent and that limp wrist will be a thing of the past.

Powerful, long-lasting, compact, lightweight. *
That’s what I look for in a portable charger. *
Add in both super durable AND super A-dorable😉and we have this winner, the A3PD. *
This little guy from @zendureusa
is quickly becoming my favorite charger and the one I reach for first. It even fits into my small purse easily and lasted during an entire event this past week. I’m very impressed. *
US customers, use code BROOKE15 at www.zendure.com to save on yours! *
I think this looks like a mini suitcase. Do you see that too? *
And of course, HAPPY HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!!🎉#zendure #portablecharger #dailyessentials #sponsored
Hey guys! Who here is a Blink-182 fan? Well this one is for you! Today’s song is “All The Small Things” by Blink-182. This signature pop punk song is one of Blink’s biggest hits and always a fan favorite. This single was written by guitarist Tom DeLonge who wrote it for his girlfriend after she complained that he always wrote songs about other girls. He was afraid it wouldn't be good so he kept telling her it was terrible. It ended up being a hit and she was very pleased with it. The hilarious music video features the trio doing parodies of other popular boy-bands such as Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, but also makes fun of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera’s videos. It became the most successful video from the album “Enema Of The State”.
Fun fact: Speaking of that video, although the beach scenes were a parody of a 98 degrees video, the beach in question has been used for many pop videos, including One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful”.

Reeeeeeaaaaaaally didn't want to run today.
It really is amazing (yet not surprising when you really think about it) how much what we eat affects our minds.
I ate shit most of the week due to not being organised.
And I feel it.
Tonight was the first run in 5 days. And 5 days full of bad food has made me tired and feeling heavy. I didn't want to do it tonight, but I did. That is a good step because it wasn't actually as hard to convince myself to do it as it used to be. This shows me that I am still in a better place mentally than I have been in a while 👍
And despite it being hard to push through today, the exercises I do after are still showing progression. I held a wall sit for a minute without any drops 🎉
I increased my tricep dip reps and I'm about 7 seconds off a minute plank without drops.
My push up reps haven't progressed as much as I would have liked, but my wrist is a lot stronger (after being weak from a break 2 years ago) finally!
Writing things down is really help me see progress, and helping me admit the positives, instead of never thinking I'm doing good enough and focusing on the negatives 🙂
