    Hi Lisa – thank you so much for linking back to my Thailand post, I’m so pleased you liked my photos! Glad to hear you have good memories from Phi Phi, too.

    Lots of interesting links here – I especially love the list of things to do in London and the article about the self talk. I also suffer from depression and I’m still learning how to monitor my thoughts. It’s such a hard process, but weirdly I enjoy discovering myself and learning how to become better at this. So thank you for sharing this, this is definitely much needed!
