I started my first blog back in 2014. Cadi2014: A Journey Back From Grief to Life, was created to help me get over the loss of a partner to suicide.
I found that writing down all of the mixed and torrid emotions I was feeling helped me. It also helped my friends and family to know what I was thinking. Finally it helped complete strangers to open up and tell me about their experiences.
Losing someone through suicide leaves you with many unanswered questions. It can make you feel angry and deeply confused. As part of my healing I turned to sport and the great outdoors. I found that being active kept my mind and body occupied at a time when I needed it most.
Old Blog To The New
An Adventurous Girl began as an evolution of Cadi2014. I wanted something new, to help me to move forward. But both blogs hold the same principle. They are about finding the joy in life, even at the toughest of times.
Whether you are grieving yourself or just going through a tough time Cadi2014 may help you to feel less alone. You may also want to read about my training for the Coast to Coast Cycle Ride, which I trained up for in memory of my late partner.
