If you've been following along on my stories recently you'll know one been a bit up and down of late. Nothing serious, a mixture of different things; travelling away with work a lot, post holiday blues, winter blues, all the blues. So I sat down and drew up my own version of a Wellness Action Plan; all the little things in life that make me feel calm an happy. And it's going to stay in the back of my notebook for when I'm feeling low, I can do something in the list to perk myself up. The list is going to get a hammering today... . . . . . . . #sunday #sundaylists #lists #wellnessactionplan #WAP #mind #mindcharity #mentalhealth #mentalhealthactionplan #anxiety #depression #selfcare #calm #love #health #mentalillness #wellbeing #mindfulness #fitness #happinness #worldmentalhealthday #positivity #winter #winterblues #sad #sadsyndrome #postholidayblues #help #lifestyleblog #lifestyleblogger

As I turn the final page to this chapter, 3 and a half months in the making, I’m again reminded just how lucky I am to have the friends and family that I do. My heart is breaking all over again and I’m hurt that we didn’t have one last proper conversation. While today hasn’t brought me the closure that I was hoping for, I still have to start new tomorrow. While you’ll never know how much I still love you, how much I truly miss you and how deeply sorry I am that I couldn’t have made it work with us, I hope you somehow know that you deserve all the happiness in the world and I really want you to find that someday. You were amazing for me and I will forever be grateful for our time together, and for you.

My life is like my beard. I didn't know I could do it until I tried. So what was stopping me? My limiting self beliefs. That inner voice that constantly uses words like: You Can't. Don't. You Won't. So what changed? I began stepping into my power. I realized the only thing that was holding me back was.....ME. And I get it, its hard... some of you may never be able to grow a beard, but I PROMISE you can quiet that inner voice. So then, the big question. How did I step into my power? Releasing past traumas. Finding stillness. Optimizing the body. And expressing. There is no secret to this. You just need to do the work. And once you do, I guarantee your life will change for the better. Shit just hits different when your inner voice isn't as loud. If you are looking for guidance and want to optimize how you show up, whether be in business, relationships or for yourself. Shoot me a DM with "POWER" so we can talk more how we can take you to the next level. This isn't for those willing to play small.

The internal & sometimes physical scars we have can cause us to be emotionally imbalanced. It is okay to ask for spiritual healing for your sexual trauma! It is also okay to ask for clinical healing & therapy. If you’re suffering internally ... then seek help.

Not everything has been hunky-dory on my trip. . In the mere one week that I’ve been in India, I’ve met several people that are battling depression or have a loved one that’s suffering from it: I met a young adult that is experiencing panic attacks, a friend who is finding it hard to have a reason to wake up in the mornings and a neighbor whose brother took his life after having given up his battle with depression. His sister smiled sadly and said “he’s in a better place now”. My heart just broke. . I started reviewing depression stats in India and the reports are, well, depressing. India is facing a serious mental health crisis, with an estimated 56 million people suffering from #depression and 38 million from anxiety disorders, according to a report by the #worldhealthorganization . In a country of a billion, where one is constantly surrounded by people, how does loneliness find its way into someone’s life? Are these chemical imbalances in the brain a result of bad lifestyle choices (isolation through e-devices and social media, #pesticides in food, lack of exposure to #sunshine, lack of enough #sleep, and the unending rat race of keeping up with the Kumars or the Mehtas)? Or could it be better medical diagnosis and the increasing awareness/lessening stigma of this mental ailment? . It’s been a lot of food for thought...if you have ideas or experiences in this area, please do share. #anxiety #mentalhealth #socialmedia #loneliness #health #mentalhealthcrisis #panicattack #india #youarenotalone

MENTAL ILLNESS & NUTRITION I just fell down a YouTube hole & found this amazing video. The data is staggering. If you or anyone you know suffers from Mental Illness Or You are pregnant or trying to fall, you really need to watch this TED Talk. 👇 There is real research showing that when it comes to our mental health as a society - NUTRITION MATTERS. I know from personal experience with my own mental health issues and that of my children & hubby, micronutrient supplementation played a vital role in our recovery. Julia Rucklidge PHD - Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of ChristChurch’s idea worth spreading is “NUTRITION MATTERS and if we’re really ready to get serious about mental health, we need to get serious about the critical role played by nutrition” #mentalhealth #nutritionmatters #nutrition

Just got done binge-watching Little Things on Netflix, and it made me feel so nice. Its so typical to bind yourself to your significant other and not explore your own abilities and say yes to opportunities that come knocking on your door. Dhruv and Kavya challenge this notion and do what they WANT to do rather than what society dictates. Its so important to remember that your partner is a part of your life and you’re allowed to feel happy and at home in other things too. Such a feel-good show with the perfect end.

Having a depression isn’t the same as feeling a bit down, when I tell someone I have depression and they say, just be happy, I get a bit angry because if it was that easy people wouldn’t be in the hospital for depression like I am now.

Humans, let’s talk about Botox and fillers. Smooth skin and perfect faces. At the end of the day, what is the point really? Honestly, I don’t care if you are for or against aided beauty. Whatever rocks your boat. It’s an individual choice to either be on board or not. But I am honestly curious. What is the point? As it’s pretty obvious my face is covered in age. My years are showing their signs. And I am totally cool with it. Because it is out of my control. It’s natures way. I can’t stop that. So I don’t. They don’t make me less attractive. Or less kind. Less feminine. Or less intelligent. In fact, I adore my age. I have no need in cover up my years of gathered knowledge. So I don’t get it. I get hair colours. I am not naturally blond. I just find that the colours suits my fair skin better. I have naturally dark hair. But I prefer blond. But I don’t colour my hair to hide any greys. Because honestly, I have no idea if I have grey hair. I have been blond for years. But if I did - so what? Still wouldn’t make me less of me. So I don’t get the need for having flat smooth foreheads. Perfectly stretched wrinkle free skin. And puffy lips. What’s the point of hanging on to the youth so desperately when natural is designed to mature you like the most beautiful wine. You are beautiful for who you are. Not because of Botox or fillers. Ps - zero filter on this photo! Straight out of the gym. Wrecked as fucked. But kind as hell. Addie xo

We all sit together in our living room. Mam has candles lit and there’s pictures of Dad on the mantle piece. I know somethings wrong and I ask Mam what’s going on. She told us “Daddy’s been in a car crash and he’s really really hurt.” We all cuddled together on the floor and cried our eyes out. For what seems like forever. It was horrible, but he was going to be okay I thought to myself. Soon after relatives started arriving to the house. I could feel something was wrong, I don’t know about Sami or Sonia but I knew that this was really serious. We were sitting in the back kitchen and I saw Mam leave the room. She went into the bathroom and locked the door. I don’t know why but I put my ear to the door and eavesdropped on the conversation. Through her tears and sobbing I could hear her asking to make funeral arrangements for Dad. I backed away from the door, got down on my hands and knees in the utility room joined my hands in prayer and said “God....your a bastard” And that was the end of my childhood folks. Right in that moment. I detached from this world and stopped feeling any emotions. My memory after that bit gets a bit hazy, I remember being told by a family member I was the man of house now and I had to take care of my family. I was 8. The next couple of days pass quickly, we go to the funeral and I cannot cry. I fact I remember laughing and giggling at his service, I couldn’t handle what was happening and had just switched into denial mode. I have never allowed self to properly grieve, I had to be a man. I had to look after my family. It was all too much for me. I loved reading and writing, I was already through the first 3 Harry Potter’s and I asked my auntie to Bri me to the book shop in the hospital morgue. I found Harry Potter 4, that cheered me up and I put my head into that book and did not look up for weeks. I wouldn’t allow myself to cry at the funeral, I didn’t want to kiss Dads body goodbye, but I did it despite myself. No kid should have to deal with this, I remember Sami and Sonia kissing him goodbye, I stood frozen at the side of the casket, feeling a twinge of anger and disgust towards myself. I just didn’t want it to be real....

I’ve been in Australia for 9 months today. It’s been the best decision I’ve made in my life up to this point. That doesn’t mean it was an easy one to make... While I’ve been over here, trying to find myself, get some headspace and live the life I’ve always wanted to live, people in my community are dying from suicide. This year has been by far the worst our small country has dealt with. It doesn’t look like it’s going to get any better any time soon and with Xmas around the corner I can’t sit by silently and not share my own battle with suicide. I was very close to taking my own life on a couple of occasions, very recently and last year also. I suffered from PTSD, anxiety and depression ever since the 22nd of December 2000. The day my father was killed. Rico was the victim of a car crash, a man who I won’t name out of respect for his family decided to take his own life. I don’t know what he was going through to make this decision. All I know is he was drinking in a pub in Mountmellick after having a fight with his wife earlier that evening. He got shit faced, was allowed to leave the pub and get into his car. On his way home he came across another car, Dad and his friend had just dropped a waitress who was working in Siroccos back to Portlaoise. So he decided to take another life with his own, suddenly swerving into Dads Seat Ibiza, killing himself and my Dad instantly. Dino, a waiter who was my Dads friend from home had come for the spin. Dino was in the passenger seat. He walked out of the car with a broken arm, and ended up robbing the till in Siroccos over the next few months, until Mam caught him. But that’s beside the point. This is 3 days before Xmas, I’m 8, Sami’s 7 and Sonia is 6. Mam is pregnant with my youngest sister Rachel in this photo above, she was 5 months gone when he died, with a business in its infancy and 3 kids to raise also. I don’t know how you managed to raise us right, keep the doors open to this day and stay positive. You are beyond an inspiration Mum, I cannot put into words how much I admire you for everything. The next morning she calls us out to the sitting room.......

PARANOID ANXIETY (street level) How if feels walking through London at night drunk on anxiety and paranoia. Despite The looming curious feeling of something terrible happening, there's something fascinating and beautiful about seeing the world in this way that I can't look away from and can't quite grasp. The most beautiful thoughts are always besides the darkest. This was Inspired by Kid Cudis "Day n' Night", Asap Rocky's "LSD", Frank Oceans "Nights", the "Kids See Ghosts" album, the "Wolf Among us" PS4 game, the "Watchmen" comic, "The Scream" painting by Munch, film nori, Van Gogh's "Starry Night". I really enjoy being inspired by so many different art platforms. I think if a piece of art connects it, connects, doesn't matter if its a PlayStation game or a 100 year old famous painting. Personally i think hierarchy is best left out of art. . . . #paranoia #anxiety #nightout #drunk #beautiful #kidcudi #asaprocky #music #frankocean #abstract #mentalhealth #animation #weekend #kidsseeghosts #party #rawart #thescream #filmnori #vangogh #philosophy #art #painting #basquiat #artgallery #contemporaryart #modernart #surealism #popart #animation #depression

ellisld.weebly.com Aren't extremists only extremists according to where you personally place and decide where the moral middle is? There are as many opinions as there are people, but you have to choose team red or blue and if you sit on the fence both teams will look down on you. "I'm very open minded, just not to opinions that differ from my own".

FAILURE PART 2 (YELLOW FREEDOM) ellisld.weebly.com I feel FREEEE Before any label you're given or give yourself e.g: failure, artist, criminal, doctor, black. We are human, which means we are equal, share the same experience of being alive which I believe can't be measured or rated. only celebrated. Peoples opinions of each other, good or bad are just opinions at the end of the day. We are no better or worse then anyone else, but all completely different. You can't logically judge someone if you're not them. Because you can't live and experience their life leading to the decisions they've made. . . . #philosophy #light #outsiderart #watercolour #healthandwellbeing #free #art #painting #artcollector #freedom #cartoon #illustration #abstract #artgallery #man #overthinking #body #perspective #failure #animals #humanmind #surealism #contemporaryart #artcommission #modernart #anime #animation #artworkneeded #manga #mentalhealth

MOTHER & CHILD ellisld.weebly.com (Commission for the London Arts in Health Forum)  This piece was inspired by the poetry event I attended, one of the poets being @ annafayebosworthwoolf . A lot of the poetry was around the theme of becoming a new mother and mother hood. All the poems had a real sincerity and positive inner glow about them that I could feel was so genuine. These poems didn't strike me as being about a particular message or fact, but more freely expressing this array of emotions felt in an abstract way. So I created the image in a similar way using this mix of swimming colours symbolising the flurry of emotions within this golden almost womb like bubble as if nothing outside this new relationship between mother and child exists. The brush strokes making up the mother flowing to and from the child, like the give and gain connection between mother and child. . . . #characterdesign #poetry #painting #portrait #motherandchild #artgallery #modernart #pregnant #newbaby #baby #art #healthandwellbeing #girl #tattoo #abstract #newborn #newmother #artcollector #contemporaryart #surealism #artistneeded #fashion #klimt #motherhood #life #mentalhealth #animation #illustration #exhibition #family

YELLOW IN THE BLUE ellisld.weebly.com (Commission for the London Arts in Health Forum) This was inspired by a combination of art events I attended from a student art gallery to drama performance days. A common theme throughout the students gallery work was about colour and shapes and how they naturally emote human emotions. So I created this face using basic shapes and a range of colours. The idea of blue relating to depression inspired the bottom shoulder of the figure being all blue like a wave with a small figure drowning in it as depression can sometimes feel. But often changing your perspective on things can be a more long lasting solution to depression then medication. So I used the same small drowning figure with inverted colours on the top of the image floating, signifying that they are identical but with different perspectives. Just like shapes they can change from looking at things from different viewpoints. I used the colour yellow to signify the positivity with the negative (the blue). There being more yellow towards the top of them image and less at the bottom where its engulfed by blue. Apart from the yellow paper boat that I felt was the perfect symbol relating to the water (the blue and depression) but also keeping you afloat. relating back to the belief in changing perspective, the boat can be folded into another more positive shape like a bird, representing freedom. Despite it looking different, it is still made up of the same paper as the boat it was previously, just the perspective and shape have changed. . . . #philosophy #nature #outsiderart #colour #healthandwellbeing #portrait #art #painting #artcollector #depression #cartoon #illustration #abstract #artgallery #man #overthinking #swimming #perspective #boat #water #humanmind #surealism #contemporaryart #artcommission #modernart #anime #animation #artworkneeded #manga #mentalhealth

I MISS YOU ellisld.weebly.com (Commission for the London Arts in Health Forum) . A reoccurring theme from the London health and well being events I attended was how the lack of nature can drop peoples mental health. I think its because nature is a part of us and being distant from it can throw off our balance. I recreated the human body replacing parts with trees, plants, roots etc, to show how closely connected we are to the natural world. And how these shapes that make up the human body are found over and over in nature like a reminder that we are just one of mother natures many children. And like a rebelling child who's tried to be their own person and wondered far from home, It's only natural to miss it when surrounded by man made structures. . . . #philosophy #nature #greenme #music #album #animals #art #painting #drawing #song #cartoon #illustration #humamcondition #producer #man #overthinking #greenpeace #outsiderart #rock #guitar #planetearth #plants #surealism #artcommission #albumart #anime #animation #artworkneeded #manga #mentalhealth
