What do you do for Be Me project?
Hi I’m Caroline the Be Me Instagrammer & I also help run some courses in schools. I love taking photos and being creative, although I realise my captions need some work !
Tell us about two highs in your life so far…
Well it would have to be the birth of my two daughters (now teenagers) and I am going cheat a bit here by saying the many amazing summer holidays we have spent in Salcombe, Devon. I’ve been going there nearly every summer since I was 13 and I still get that kick of excitement as we arrive, I just love the place!
What about two lows?
My toughest times have been when I’ve felt I can’t control things, like the 4 miscarriages I had before I had my girls; the frustration and upset was so overwhelming. Also when my lovely Mum was dying from cancer it was truly heart breaking. I found that although these times were truly awful, God did give me peace to get through them.
Tell us a lesson you have learned in life…
Lean on close friends who you trust in tough times. Whilst they cant always solve your problems, just a 10 minute chat or even a text/WhatsApp can lift your mood and help keep you going. Also that chocolate (Dairy milk in particular) is the answer to most of life’s problems & stresses!
Thanks Caroline. Look out for another chance to meet a member of Be Me very soon x
