Full disclosure: I am having a terrible day. I've been having a terrible day not every day, but most days since we lost my Dad. In an earlier post, in the aftermath of his death, I tried to write about grief. And while what I wrote then is still true now, grief is something that changes a lot with time. Now I feel the stage I'm at is trying to come to terms with my loss and trying to rebuild a life that feels right, despite its huge hole. If we're friends on social media (which I'll go ahead and assume we already are), then you'll already heard that this year, I have decided I want to try and make a difference. I decided that my grief was something that I needed to channel and that in doing so, I wanted to experience something life affirming.
So as I'm sure you might have already heard, I've signed up to take on a huge challenge with Mihai, to climb Mt Kilimanjaro on behalf of the British Heart Foundation. If you've been reading for a while then you might remember a post I shared on my 30 things before 30. This year, I've decided, will be the year I try to stop talking about things and writing about thing, and get them done. It's a big adventure we've got ahead of us, and I'm enjoying the excuse to take on smaller challenges. Even though I've never been the most active person, being outdoors clears my mind in a way that nothing else seems to right now. I'll keep you posted on our journey but for now, here's a few snaps from our latest adventure: Scafell Pike.
