Emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health

Healing and recovery of the mind, body and spirit after a major crisis, abuse, neglect or trauma

Coping with major or chronic health issues

Overcoming addictions

Self love and self care

Understanding yourself, your passions, your actions, your motivations.

Overcoming your fears – Understanding and facing your shadow aspects

Living well – Creating an amazing and fulfilling life

Beauty and inspiration

Interesting theories

Balanced spiritual psychology and guidance

Inspiring movies, books, music and quotes

My blog is called ‘Silver Girl’ from Paul Simon’s inspired lyrics in the beautiful song ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’.

We all deserve to shine with happiness, live in peace and follow our passions no matter what our past.

Blessings, love & peace to you.

    • Thank you. I am so pleased I came across your blog also. Your words and photography did indeed render me speechless. Your words are healing. Your photography soulful. True gifts born from suffering and pain. As I related it made me feel not quite so alone in this world. I could see my own beauty through you – if that makes sense.. Powerful. Thank you for being brave enough to be open and vulnerable.

      • You know, your first comment on my blog rocked me – such lovely kind words. I was speechless for a while too. It took me ages to reply. And your words above I will have to read again and again. I Havent had anyone say anything so kind and meaningful for years. I was up really late last night, especially after watching the short film “validation” I cry everytime I watch it. I am the girl with the camera, people don’t understand my grief. You are wonderful, you will find good people, finding your blog, I feel like ive suddenly stepped into the sunshine. so much information, a gentle wisdom delivered with such warmth and clarity. thankyou. <3

  1. Only just came across your reply now! Beautiful, thank you :o) .. and I am sorry you’ve been surrounded by people that didn’t value you that should have. It doesn’t do wonders for self esteem and can be a cause of chronic depression. I had the same issue and this is what I did.. Find a photo of yourself as a little child and take a good look at that beautiful little child and ask yourself how does that beautiful little boy deserve to be treated? How would you treat that little boy if he was yours? …. Don’t ever forget that that little boy is still you and you deserve to being treated with love and understanding. Go forward and treat yourself with love and understanding always <3

    • Thankyou. I have a Photo of myself holding a camera when I was very young. I cant remember it being taken but I look full of life and am smiling. I also have another of me and my mum before she got ill. I remember that one, the world seemed so different then.

      I have taken down my blog. My family admitted finding it and I have also been attacked by someone else, its been quite upsetting. I feel as though I have a right to vent my feelings without being kicked. I guess the truth really does hurt.

      I might start writing again, im not sure. I hope you have a wonderful 2015, thanks for your very kind words and support. I do seem to keep finding people very similar to what I have been through. A lot of what you write resonates with me, and gives me hope. Maybe Law of attraction actually is working. Im sure it will work for you on your trips. Enjoy.

      • Thank you ‘hjwn’ – you have been missed <3
        I'm sorry about being attacked – it's awful, it happened to me also on my blog. I'm very sensitive and it really got into my head and spun me around. Someone once told me.. or I read somewhere.. that if someone really confuses you, there is usually evil at bay – a weakness in them.
        I always keep that in mind and when I feel totally confused by people's actions I take that into account and if need be release them in a kind manner and by communicating in kind but assertive words.
        I have realized diplomacy and effective communication is a big deal.
        You'll get there and so will I, it's just a painfully slow healing process but it comes with great wisdom and if you continue and have the courage I believe the rewards at the end will be better than anything you can imagine :o)
        You deserve better treatment. You are a beautiful soul and deserve to be surrounded by other beautiful souls.
        Beautiful souls to me are the best and strongest of people – strong souls need to see and believe in their own worth and not put up with the weaknesses of others trying to hurt them and pull them down to their level..

      • Thankyou so much for your lovely words of encouragement. <3

        I am doing a great deal to heal, but its so difficult alone, your words have nourished, shone some light into the darkness.

      • I think we all go through it alone.. I think that’s what pushes us to grow and in the end we do grow so much.. It is painful and heart wrenching .. and …it seems never-ending. I felt broken and depressed most of the time and just went with the flow and accepted that was what I was going through.
        I read an estimate, that 95% of the population never heal and never break away from controlling or abusive relationships – basically because it’s so hard..
        Take in to account the sheer bravery of what you are doing and pat yourself on the back.

        Hopefully one day you can get back into the writing, spilling it out is really helpful… and if you can make it through one attack you will have the strength, and gain the knowledge how to handle others.
        Like everything about this process it takes time though :o)

  2. SilverGirl, Okay, I’m officially in love with you and adore what you’re doing here, sis. TY so much for following me at BBB. What an honor to have you. Seriously. You are so clearly the light that this world needs and through some of your words, I feel like we already know each other. Rock on, sista. Oooohh…oooo…I’ve now pushed the “follow” button for you, too. Warmest, biggest, yummiest hugs to you. Your new friend, BigLizzy

    • Hi BigLizzy, Thanks for the love.
      First thought as I read your intro.. this woman is gorgeous!!
      Having a little break from writing at the moment having lost some of my silver (was becoming more dark grey girl instead)..

  5. Silver Girl, I have greatly enjoyed reading some of your blogs. You have certainly accomplished your goal to “give information, inspiration and support for anyone who may feel alone, stressed or depressed, confused or misunderstood.” Thank you so much for sharing. Please continue to gift others with your empathetic understanding of the subjects that you choose and your capacity to put it in writing. Many Congratulations!
    Madeleine

    • Thank you Madeleine for your kind words and support, it means a great deal to me.
      It’s tragic that many people spend their entire adulthood in suffering or in confusion, attempting to heal from their childhood

      I am not qualified but I certainly have life experience. and my goal is to help in any small way to make the healing process faster or less painful for another.
      Thank you for all the re-blogs..
      SilverGirl
