Hello beautiful survivor

welcome to surviving life's hurdles

I’m going to inspire you and give you the tools to live your life well!

Surviving Life’s Hurdles is about acceptance and making the best of your situation.   

It’s about finding ways to thrive in the face of your problems, whatever they may be.  

This is why I share my creative passions, crafts and family life ideas alongside articles on health and wellbeing.

Everyone has hurdles in their lives they are fighting to survive, no matter how big or small.  I’ve certainly been fighting to survive quite a few recently and if by sharing my experiences I can help you to survive your own personal hurdles then how fantastic is that?!  

I really hope that you take as much away from Surviving Life’s Hurdles as possible, including loads of practical, emotional and motivational ideas.

I’m sharing my most popular articles with you to help you make the best start possible!

What I know about surviving life’s hurdles

My biggest life hurdles happened back in September 2015 and altered the course of my life dramatically.

I discovered I had Multiple Sclerosis with the onset of some rapidly worsening symptoms which significantly impacted on every aspect of my life, including my health, wellbeing, family and relationships,  

If you’re interested in finding out a bit more about the path I’m on and how I make life with a chronic illness work for me, take a look at my About page.

I’ve also help to run a really supportive Facebook group Chat MS- Newly diagnosed/young people along with fellow blogger and MSer Hannah from Hannah Eliza Site.  It’s a lovely little community so far and if you’re interested in joining then please do!
