Turning a page

wpid-img_20140902_100231-2.jpg

Towards the end of last summer I started feeling unwell. I spent a lot of days in bed crying. I felt sad about how certain things in my life had turned out but also angry at myself. I would wake up in the morning and count the hours until I could be asleep again because the days became unbearable. I felt like I had no control over anything, completely hopeless and that I was stuck inside this dark place with no escape.

I was struggling so badly that I did something I’ve never really done before. I asked for help.

Fast forward 5 months later and I  feel the best I have felt in a really long time. It is only from having a great day from start to finish that I realised how far I have come since September. I don’t feel like I’m stuck any more and I’m starting to feel like I can cope with life. I’ve turned a page and started a new chapter in my life.

I wanted to share this because one of the hardest things for me was feeling like I was alone and that I was the only one going through this. Something that really helped me was reading online about other people who had gone through/were going through similar things to me. It felt like an invisible hand was being extended out to me.

If you can relate to this post then think of it as me extending my hand out to you and if you want to chat then snippetsofthislife2@gmail.com is my email or you can just leave a comment.

That’s all for now,

Lazy days

Lately I haven’t been able to make time to do longer written posts that I have planned but I’m working on my time management so they should be up soon. I currently don’t have any particular posting schedule. I did make one but I ended up not really sticking to it. Once I sort myself out I’m going to post 5 times a week or daily if I want a bigger challenge.

Today’s outfit is just a simple one for a lazy day, blue jeans and a green cable knit sweater. My little red bag is a nice contrast with the jumper and fits all my essentials.

January Round-up 2015

Happy 1st February!!

Last month was interesting. I feel like I’m on a mystical journey in my life right now and that I’m kind of on the brink of something unknown. So here are some things from January:

Discovering the root of a problem

Yesterday I was in my Kitchen making fried dumplings and I had an actual revelation. Something just clicked in my  mind as I was thinking about life and I realised the cause of all the problems I’ve been having for years. My problems spanned from the way I view myself but I’ll share more about it in another post, maybe.

I bought a baby Nikon

I’ve wanted a camera for about 5 years and finally I decided I would but myself one. It is actually like the most basic point and shoot but it’s perfect for me.

 Hippie Hippie Shake

A book by Richard Neville about his life from the 60’s. Neville was the editor of the counter-culture magazine Oz which began in Sydney then he moved to London and started it there. I’ve never read anything like it and even though I haven’t finished it yet I would recommend it. I love history and this book satisfies my curiosity to learn more about the way people used to live. The people in the book were part of the hippie movement but it was more than just a fashion trend, it was a lifestyle, it was about politics and non-conformity to mainstream society. I think it’s all amazing!
