I’m Clocking K’s for R U OK?

This July, I’m joining K’s for R U OK? to stay connected, develop healthy habits and help to create a world where we're connected and protected from suicide.

Each week I'll be consistent in my clocking as I walk, (run, roll or ride) to help start more life-changing conversations. 

By donating to my page you are helping R U OK? provide free, essential resources to schools, workplaces, families, and communities across Australia. Giving them the tools and confidence to spot the signs and to start a conversation that could change the life of someone who's struggling. And you'll be putting a big smile on my face.

Thank you so much.

By inspiring people to take the time to ask “Are you OK?” and listen, we can help people struggling with life to feel connected long before they even think about suicide.

Cranky and moody

Friday 28th Jul
This afternoon, I was tired cranky and moody.  I decided to go for a walk after work.
Did it help? At the time no. 
Did I still do it? Yes!
The scenery was beautiful. 
My dog had a great time.
I came home, vented to my darling husband. I love how he just let's me be. He doesn't judge me, he let's me express myself. 
I took a shower and said to my husband, when I come out I promise I will try and improve my mood.

I reflected, post shower, and realised I am good at asking people if they are okay but not so good at asking myself.

No, I wasn't okay. But I recognised it. I took myself for a walk. I got fresh air. I took some beautiful photos. Surely that's a positive 😊

Thank you!

Thursday 20th Jul
I am overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of my friends and family. 
I have completely smashed my fundraising goal.
I am so thankful for you all.
You are helping make a difference. 
Words can't express how grateful I am.

I've decided I am going to stick to my KMs goal of 30kms each month. I think it will keep me motivated.

What a week!

Tuesday 11th Jul
What a week.
A rollercoaster of emotions.
A patient passed away. It was so peaceful and beautiful.  It got me thinking about Stacey. It broke my heart, again, thinking about how Stacey died. She deserved a peaceful death and she didn't deserve to die alone.
I am so grateful for a wonderful work colleague who was there. Who let me talk, and debrief and made me feel listened to. 

My brother was in a car accident. Thankfully he is okay. A few broken bones. One surgery down, another to go. Another work colleague gave me a new perspective. A condensed version is, these things happen to prevent bigger, worse things from happening.

Feeling down yesterday, I was greeted by another wonderful work colleague who greeted me with the biggest  smile and bubbly personality.  Called me her favourite nurse. To be honest, I needed that enthusiasm and positively. 

I am so grateful to be around so many wonderful, beautiful person.

Today, I took my dog for a nice walk. She had water in the water, and smelling everything she can.  We met a beautiful elderly lady and had a nice chat. It was exactly what I needed. To take a break from everything and  clear my busy mind.

It was, also, great to walk again! Between night shifts, family and other things I've been a bit slack with my walking.

Back on to it now.

Wet and raining

Tuesday 4th Jul
Wet and raining but we still went for our walk.
It's so much easier for me walking with my dog, than going alone.
We were lucky there was a break in the rain.
Megs loved all the puddles. 

2nd July

Sunday 2nd Jul
First walk of July.
Feeling so motivated to smash my goals.
I'm looking forward to continuing to exercise and maintain my healthy mental health.
I know first hand how difficult it is to struggle with mental health. Not only losing one of my best friends to suicide, but struggling in the past myself.

Checking in on others

Thursday 22nd Jun
Today I took my dog for a nice walk.
She loved exploring.
It gave me time to reflect on something that happened yesterday. 

It was a challenging day at work. Verbally abused and challenging behaviours. A doctor treated me with such kindness and respect. Took the time out to check that I was okay and kept checking it.
It is so important that we do that.
It made me feel validated, supported and important.

Beautiful walk + Stacey

Monday 12th Jun
Today I took my dog on an adventure
Absolutely loved it
It was fun!
We walked and explored and met some dogs.
Got lost, walked up stairs, met an elderly couple who Megs loved getting their pats from.
Came across two mads dogs barking their heads off, Megs looked at them and then kept on walking. Didn't bark or anything!  So proud of her.

I've been thinking about Stacey. I wish she was still here. I hate how we had so many plans and now we can't achieve them together.  She was such an advocate for everyone. Always helping 
 Always being there.  Sometimes words don't seem enough, or even right, to describe how I feel.

I know I will spend the rest of my life trying to let people know there is always help. There is another option.  You don't have to do it alone.

First walk

Tuesday 30th May
I couldn't wait until July, so I've started today.
Took Megs to the Botanical Gardens in Benowa. She loved it. Such a beautiful walk.
Maybe soon we can go off leash! 

For Stacey

Monday 29th May
Stacey was a unique, beautiful, kind, fun person and an incredible human. 

It is absolutely heartbreaking and shattering losing Stacey.

I want to do everything I can to try and prevent losing another soul to suicide. 

If we get the message out, let people know they're not alone, and not be afraid to have the hard conversations, I think we can truly make a difference. 

Thank you for your support. 

It means the world to me.
