Down The Rabbit Hole She Fell

One foot in front of the other it goes. Make a choice with a heavy dose of anticipation, nerves tingling like a charged bolt of white hot light. Reach out for that steady hand, firm and reassuring, grasping it tightly. Into a land of unknown opportunities, blind as I am I stand tall against the pressure.




Never really knowing what lies ahead creates a world of worries. This most unsettling of habits whips up a storm in my mind, but learning to reign in the freak outs and temper the emotions is proving key to survival upon this newest of journeys.


Over night, nothing can become. Time and a fudge load of patience, persistence, hope and a little blind faith, these are my weapons. Equipped as I can be, the pages are turning. Making the most of this little life around me weighs important, and I all too often forget this. Searching ahead, scrambling for the answers to questions yet un asked. Frustration at my limitations. Enough.


One foot in front of the other it goes.

  1. Urgh this sums up my life so much at the moment what's worse is that I lack patience, I wasn't born with any which makes more anxious. Nasty cycle.

    1. There's a little bit of comfort there, knowing I'm not alone in thinking like this at times! It's a tricky one isn't it. I often feel like I know the answer, which usually goes along the lines of 'stop worrying and wait'… But boy oh boy isn't that easier said than done!

      I hope you manage to grab a hold of something stable during those moments of chaotic thinking x

  6. Change makes me anxious too. Over time, things will become familiar and it will all be okay! You really are so brave to make a move like this, I hope you feel a bit more settled soon! xx

    1. Thank you so much Jess. I know you're right, just need to remind myself it can't be achieved in a day! Perhaps I need to stop trying so hard to 'settle' too, just let it happen naturally. Hope you are well x

  7. It can be unsettling not knowing the future but I guess if we knew it all life might get a little dull! I'm sure everything will work out just fine, in time :) xxx
