quote.pngQuote's of the month

Lived Experience Forum: 

What I have learnt most is that the past cannot be changed (no matter how much we would like it to be) and learning to live in the present and just deal with what is immediately in front of us can actually refocus some of those negative thoughts.- said by @Zoe7here



Carers Forum: 

Taking care of my home, adding a touch of cut flowers to my living area and keeping it clean makes me feel good.  I also enjoy the outdoors and truly appreciate the gardens that I walk past daily. - said by @Boo13 discussing self care tips here
