My Best Friend, Anne

My best friend Anne is my inspiration. She has braved and styled out mental health in a way that genuinely leaves me breathless. I can't imagine how hard it must be for her to get out of bed some mornings, and I know that often that fight is too hard. Despite her own inner turmoil she is a fantastic friend. She is brave. Strong. Beautiful. Always there for me. Words don't really do it justice but words are important to us both. Recently she has made huge strides in keeping well and staying well, and I am so hugely proud of her. That dedication to herself is so important and I wanted to remind her of that. That dedication serves her and those around her - she is a gift to us all. I gave her a key this week, BREATHE. Sometimes just breathing in and out is exactly right.
