Keep looking forward ➡

I usually joke with groups that I love archery & show them my tattoo 🎯

I do ♥ archery. But the reason behind having these arrows tattooed on my arm is a bit more than that. And feels relevant at the moment, so I thought I’d share with you…

There can be many reasons behind someone’s arrow tattoo and depending on their design. For me, as arrows can only go in one direction, they symbolise that we always have to keep moving forward. And although you have to first pull them back to release them (draw, in archery), just as we all have challenges and set backs that pull us back sometimes, all we can do is keep pointing and moving forward ➡

Several arrows together is a symbol of strength 💪and for me represents the key people I have around me.

With the challenges we’ve all faced and continue to face, I am finding this useful to keep in mind.

I hope you’re all staying safe, keeping well and looking forward, Rachel ♥

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

Dog walks, drawing, listening to the birds sing, reading, sowing seeds to grow vegetables, sitting in the garden, listening to music.

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. These are just a few of the ways we’re being kind to ourselves and looking after our mental health.

What works for you?

Fundraising for Mental Health Awareness Week

This week (18-24 May) is Mental Health Awareness Week. Now more than ever, people with mental health problems need support. And now more than ever, charities need our support.

As I can’t have a hair cut, I’ve made a donation to kick start my fundraising. If you can spare a pound or two I’d really appreciate it. Thank you!

Just a few days to go ’til all my hair goes! Photos to follow.
Thanks for your support, Rachel 🙂👍
