Hello world of love sisters,

I don't know how to write about all the projects going on in my life right now...I think the computer in my head needs a reboot before it crashes. I was looking forward to writing more constructively, but am so tired and just want to share this video by my mum...

Here is a link to my brother's journey: https://www.amazon.com/My-Brothers-Journey-Genius-Simpleton-ebook/dp/B00...

Cheer everyone

Dear Lizzy,

Thank you o, let's keep stepping.

Hello, sis Marie,

So sweet of you to post something for World Mental Health Day even though you are tired. :)
Thank you for spreading awareness.

At first, I couldn't believe that the woman speaking on the video was your mother because she looks young. Both of you are truly beautiful.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your mom's message on mental health. Please hug your mom from me. It must be very difficult for her, and for everyone who loved your brother.

Wow. You wrote another memoir. It makes me wonder how do you get book-writing done with so many things you're already doing. Well done, sis.

Hope you have a restful weekend.

Dear Karen,

Thank you. Yes, I couldn't let the day go by just like that here o. My mum has pulled through to a better place now, my two sisters and I were so worried for her back in 2014 - 2016. I am fine too and happier when I am busy hahahaha.
The book was written back then in the month after he died. That project actually kept me sane because I was losing it and I was battling insomnia inspite goin to the gym twice a day, to school, and small work plus home in dreary Brussels. I am ever grateful for my partner at the time who stood by me and helped me the best he could. I also saw a psychotherapist for my first time. It was a tough time, but it seems I was tougher o Amen.

Oh, wow, that must really be a tough time with you all. You are really strong women to endure that kind of pin and grief.

Hugs to your mom and sisters. Hugs to you, too. Yes, you are tougher than whatever life throws at you. You’ve proven that time and again.

Thank you for sharing this with us. I hope you will inspire many with your stories of resilience.

Have a relaxing weekend. Please take a rest, dear.
