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!
The past week has been filled with ups, downs. From post-work margaritas with a colleague to bursting into tears over excessive stress, anxiety and lack of sleep to a 1st birthday and making plans with a friend I haven’t seen for way too long.
Anyway, I thought I’d share a photo, that represents me excellently because yesterday at work I was reminded of this habit I have of sometimes not looking people in the eye. I feel uncomfortable making eye-contact because I feel like my eyes give away how I’m feeling and sometimes I don’t want people to know. Also my eyes are the window to my soul and not every Tom, Dick and Harry is getting that privilege!

I hope you all have a beautiful day.
Hope your having a good day 🙂
For this weeks Sunday Snippet I’m sharing the best and worst times of a former friendship.
It was the best of times…
He was so kind, generous and easy to talk to. He was one of the few people I could totally be myself around and it was nice to feel like I didn’t have to try so hard. He was so good at making me laugh and smile. I loved to just talk to him, I’d tell him the silliest things that I’d usually try to hide. I’d never met anyone like him, he was pretty special to me at the time.
It was the worst of times…
In the end my feelings were hurt but I don’t think that anyone is to blame, I’ve always been incredibly fragile, perhaps it was inevitable. There were some things that I never said and looking back I wish I hadn’t been so scared to be honest.
It can be the best thing but other times it’s not so great. Nevertheless it is a very special thing (to me anyway). I’ve kept one for the past 6/7 years and I now have about 12 in total.
Do you keep a journal?
… was nothing more than false escape.
