Hey guys, I’m just letting you all know that I’m going on holiday which means my time spent simming, listening to music and generally being online will be greatly reduced.
Everyone needs a break once in a while to recharge their batteries and realign themselves. I’m excited because a lot is going on right now. Here’s a bit of an update for you: Ben and I are buying our first house together (and if our experience is representative of the process, it may well be our last 🤣); I’m finally waking up and thinking of exploring other avenues at work too, which couldn’t have come at a worse time.
There’s light at the end of the tunnel though, I think we’re approaching the end of the house buying process though we are kept in the dark about a lot of things so who really knows? Not me, that’s for certain. Dealing with anxious thoughts and feelings is something I’m certainly able to cope better with thanks to my second course of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and I no longer feel like saying ‘I have anxiety’ as if it were a condition you can self-diagnose. To be clear, Generalised Anxiety Disorder is certainly all too real, but it’s not something that I have.
I’ve definitely started down the path of identifying my strengths and embracing the positives as opposed to leaning into the negatives, I’m not going to lie this is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Over the last couple of months I certainly feel like I’m being tested but things will get better.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to say ‘hi, thanks for stopping by’ or for sticking through all of the low post phases, it feels so good to have returned voluntarily and without a schedule, just as something I enjoy. It can feel like I’m talking to a wall sometimes, but I know there are people out there who genuinely appreciate my words and that gives me the hope to carry on writing, you folks know who you are and I love you.
For now though, it’s off to work, pack and enjoy ourselves as we venture up north and into my place of origin. I’ll be sure to keep my Instagram up-to-date and I’ll be back with a brand new ‘Music Monday’ in a couple of days time. See you then.
