Feeling the blues, it goes on

Over the past week I’ve been feeling the blues. Up until yesterday I was extremely worried and stressed. It happens to me all the time so I’m used to it but it’s difficult sometimes.

I’ll often have a few consecutive days of stress and worry then suddenly I’ll have some sort of revelation whilst doing something I always do like listening to The Jezabels. It was once words from the song Beat to Beat:

“All of my things that I don’t want,

all of the things that I don’t need,

are weighing me down,

are weighing me down,

but it goes on”

Just hearing those lines changed my state of mind. I had been carrying a mental burden that was weighing me down by affecting me physically. Those words reminded me that it goes on, life is always changing. It’s impossible for me to avoid things that will get me down but more often than not these things aren’t as big a deal as they seem so I just have to keep going.

Yesterday I spent the day in Cardiff, it was only when I got home that I realised I’d forgotten all about my worries from the past week. Its surprising what a change of scenery can do to a persons state of mind.

Anyway I’m now feeling refreshed, energised and full of positivity.

On a lighter note, last week I reached 400 followers on the blog so “Thank you very much!”

I really appreciate all the support especially as I’m becoming a more confident blogger, it all feels great.

Hope your Sunday has been RAD!

Caught in the act!

A few days ago I was writing in my journal and just as I was about to compare the present to the past, I thought ‘Hang on a minute, I’m always doing that’.

I feel like it was the first time I’ve properly acknowledged that I have a pretty bad habit of comparing the present with the past.

There’s nothing wrong with being reflective but I think the problem with constantly making comparisons is that you can end up focusing too much on the past instead of moving forward.

To end this post I have a line from a song I have been listening to quite a lot recently, ‘If you don’t like the effects,don’t produce the cause’ by Funkadelic

“A situation is just that, it has no special power to do you harm. Its your reactions that count”
