A letter to the scared me, pregnant with her first child.
I know you’re scared that your body wont bounce back. Sooner or later your going to have to value yourself on something other then the way your body looks, keep writing, keep painting, keep loving and one day you’ll learn that you don't feel the way you look, you look the way you feel. You're going to be ok.
I know you’re scared for your vagina. The truth is it will be fine, it will stretch to grand canyon status and magically shrink again small enough to snuggle a tampon. Vaginas are wonderfully sophisticated and despite a serious case of Long Term Relationship Vagina it will be just fine. You're going to be ok.
I know you’re scared that it wont work out with your man. And to be honest there are no guarantees in this world, but one thing I can tell is that your fear of single motherhood will pass, in order to feel truly happy in a relationship you need to learn that you can do it on your own… And you can. Invest in bonds with your family, bonds with other women and your relationship may just fall into place. Your scared of loneliness which is ironic considering you’ll never be alone again. You're going to be ok
I know that you’re scared that your anxiety will transform to post natal depression. Talk. Every single conversation you have in the future will take a small bit of weight off your shoulders. Talk. Hiding from depression makes you unwell, facing it makes you kick arse warrior. You're going to be ok.
I know you are scared that you are not going to be able to keep your house clean. Sorry but you’re right, you never become a clean person. It will be the base of many arguments between you and your man, the sooner you accept this the better. And still.. You are going to be ok.
I know you don't believe that you are going to be a good mum. You are. You are an incredible mum, because every relationship you have ever had you think you spoiled for loving too much… But guess what? You cant give children too much love, you are going to go on to have more children and they are going to make you so happy, you’ll actually cry happy tears all the time, the love will be visible to everyone who steps into your house and sees the world that you are going to live in for the rest of your life. You are one very lucky young scared women.. and..
You are going to be ok.
Because every year you’ll give less fucks then the one before and your only regret will be how much time you spent worrying about things that seriously do not matter. So please, pregnant, waddling and scared little me… Remember..
“I want the badges to start a conversation, make everyone feel part of something and help them brave the path to ending stigma.” – Kat Selwyn
Kat created #EndTheStigma ‘badges’ to remind people experiencing a mental health condition that they’re not alone. People all around the world have jumped on board sharing the badges and their incredible personal stories – helping to smash the stigma and show that mental health conditions don’t discriminate; they affect anyone, anywhere. We strongly support the idea of ‘calling out’ discrimination experienced by people affected by depression, anxiety and suicide so it is no longer ignored, expected or accepted
Which badges do you wear? Join the movement by sharing one that relates to you or view the full collection at End the Stigma You can also share your experiences and connect with others in our Online Forums: beyondblue.org.au/onlineforums
“Imported food in our supermarkets is putting a lot of pressure on our local Australian farmers
Many farmers are being driven from their land with the lowest prices in living memory they are receiving for their produce from the supermarkets due to importation of food, increased competition, deregulation and oversupply in some lines has hit producers hard. Some growers simply cannot make ends meet.
Please don't email me anymore - there's no wifi in boxland, I just switched it off.
This Chrissy period in our family will always be known as the year we got run over by the Little Box of Fucks truck! If your fuckbox hasn't yet arrived, be assured that it eventually will, and that we are doing our utmost. We've had to take the whole shop offline (except for Connie’s Coins) so we can catch up on the backlog before we take a Christmas break!
Oh and by the way, we pulled out the calculator and you guys have raised...wait for it...drumroll....$1.25M this year just gone! 90K of that is Little Box of Fucks! Who would have thought that thousands of people who 'had no fucks left to give' would end up collectively giving such a fuck about cancer research? I love us. We're amazing. And weird. Better get back to it. Postie waits for no man! xsam

Christmas is a time when most of us think of loved ones near and far. For William’s family, Christmas Day will mark 835 sleeps and the third Christmas morning without their precious little boy… For 835 sleeps, Australians have held onto hope that William will be found. For 835 sleeps they have continued to share his image, continued to support William’s family in their campaign to find their precious little boy.
But William’s family are not alone. Tragically, there are many who’ve gone missing and many hearts are breaking not knowing what has become of those they love. This Christmas our thoughts are with everyone who shares the pain of not knowing if or when they will once again hold their loved ones near...
To all those who continue to hold hope that William will be found, our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you...

So, I'm bisexual. I never intended on officially coming out, but 2016 has been such a bizarre, heartbreaking year for me in so many ways (and everyone else really), and I just feel like I don't want to start 2017 without putting that little fact on the table. My best friend Tony knew, and he encouraged me to be open about it, and since he died in July, I've been waiting for the right moment to say something. And I just figured, why not right now? It's 8pm on a Tuesday, I just finished dinner, I'm sitting on my bed watching TV, and this inconsequential moment feels perfect to reveal something that is not really a big deal to me. It's what Tony would have wanted, it's what I want, and it's who I am. So that's that. Much love xoxox
Another brazen robbery by African gangs who've been allowed into Australia to start a new life...
Federal Greens, Labor and Liberal/National party's have a great deal to answer for. These people have no regard for the law and no regard for the people of a country who has generously taken them in from their former homeland.
I can think of a dozen better ways to deal with them than the Andrews Government, as I'm sure you can.
