Time To Get Up

" Rock Bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
- J.K. Rowling

I've had this quote in my head recently , this is what it did for me :



Life can get bad... like really bad. It can hurt and it's scary because you're out of control and everything's gone wrong and your heart feels like it's dropped down into your stomach, it's painful how heavy it feels and nothing could get worse.

So tell me about tomorrow. I imagine it's better. In fact I know it;s better. Take some time, be sad. Cry, swear, shout, feel rubbish for a few days and accept that's how you're feeling and just take it in all its intensity.

Now get up. 

Tomorrow's going to be better because you're going to make it that way honey. Have a shower, paint your nails, make an action plan and tell me what you're going to do about it. You don't deserve to feel this way. If you need help then get help ( I promise it's out there... seriously, google it. ), If you need to drop the subject that you've tried and tried but are leaving every lesson crying then drop it. If you need a fresh start then have one. If you need to be with the person you love then be with them. What have you got to lose ?

Rebuild your life and let yourself have what you need, find what makes you happy and know that you are loved. I love you. You can do this . If for no other reason ... J.K.Rowling is a pretty damn impressive woman so she's probably right about this as well as most other things !

You're doing good and I'm proud of you. I once got asked how my week was and I said " Up and down.". I was expecting the reply " Why, what's wrong? " but no. He said " That's normal, life is full of ups and downs, it's about handling them in a healthy way ". So be sad, pick yourself up, make an action plan and rebuild your life.

Life can get good... like really good. You can make a change and it can be hard and you might go through hell to get there but I'm telling you it's pretty good when you do. Feeling happy, in control and like it couldn't get any better. If you need a reminder of that then this is for you.

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  1. I love the positive note to this post and everything you've said is so true - life is a whole load of ups and downs, so we simply have to get out our feelings and then move on, get up and seize the day! :)

    1. I'm glad you like it ! I think it's difficult to know when it's time to let yourself get move on it makes life so much easier when you give yourself permission to be happy again :)

  4. Loving your positive view! This is what I am talking about when I encourage people to choose happiness. Life is going to be full of ups and downs and we will fall and fail. But we also can choose to get up once again and move on :)

    1. Choosing happiness is definitely something that's important and it worries me that so many people don't know that they can make a choice to improve their lives in a positive way :)

  10. Thank you so much for this Marianne and again one of the many reasons why I love you and your blog! This was just what I needed, this last year has been incredibly frustrating and one I feel like I'm building from bottom again (at least I've done it before which helps lol ;D )I love thinking of JK Rowling she is just out of this world, her and her life story and legacy is so comforting and brings so much hope! Thank you so much once again for this Marianne! <3 <3 <3
