Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! In today’s post I’m going to be talking about how I’ve started to get out of my comfort zone. Before the new year I decided to put a few things in place so I could go into the new year having already done things out of my comfort zone and I’d been putting off.Read more
Whilst this is slightly embarrassing to admit, this did teach me more than one lesson. Recently I was out shopping for some winter clothes. So in the changing room I was trying on jumpers, but had no pockets to put my phone anywhere and there was no stool in the changing room. One of the jumpers had pockets, so I put my phone in there whilst I tried everything on. After trying everything on I handed back the items I didn’t want and carried on with my shop.Continue reading
This morning when I woke up, all over my Twitter timeline were tweets about Ariana Grande’s new song Thank U, Next. As soon as I heard it I felt empowered. I felt like this song is something amazing, rather than slating an ex or anything like that the song thanks them for the lessons she’s learnt. Then turning it into how she’s turned out from all those experiences. It got me thinking about the lessons I’ve learnt from previous relationships.I have been in two relationships, one was an abusive one and the other not. Whilst I don’t want to name the two, I think for me it’ll be a really positive thing to think about the positives of a relationship rather than be ashamed of things that have happened.Continue reading
This year has gone by so quickly it’s unreal. It really doesn’t feel like May. The past 5 months have been crazy, I seem to have been drifting from one assessment to the next without really stopping to breathe. So I thought I would do a little roundup as to where I have been, what I have been up to and where I’d like t be heading.
12 months can bring a lot of change, both good and bad. A lot of things can happen, some will be forgotten and others will be cherished memories. I for one would never have envisaged myself where I am now. If someone would have told me in January half the things I’d do in the next 12 months I’d have thought they were mad.
Hi everyone! Hope you’re all enjoying the run up to Christmas! It actually snowed where I live, which it hasn’t done in years! Today I wanted to go over a few things that I do to help me when I’m feeling anxious. Every now and then I do a post on how I’m feeling/dealing with my mental health. Which I usually write as I am feeling anxious. So I thought I would write a post on how I actually deal with feeling anxious and not just those thoughts during the time of feeling it.
It feels like it has been the longest week. I have been more anxious and had more panic attacks over the past 7 days then I have over the past two months. It started after waking up from a dream having a panic attack last Sunday and since then I have been unable to shake off the feeling of being constantly on edge.
I say this at the start of every month and I’ll say it again, where is 2017 going!? It feels like it has flown by but also taken it’s time because so much has happened. At the beginning of 2017 I wrote Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 and every 3 months I have written an update as to how I have been doing this year, one in April and the last one in June.
Growing up I was never someone who was naturally confident. I was shy and had zero self confidence. I over thought and over analysed everything and I never felt good enough. I would look at the girls around me and wonder why I couldn’t be more like them: prettier, loads of friends and super confident.
