Real Talk: Self-Revelations and moving forward

I had an epiphany moment this morning.

Sitting in a catch up with my work manager, we were discussing upcoming birthdays and I was stressing (surprise… NOT) about how I did not feel like I was turning 25 in 16 days.

Dear Diary: Pushing Out and Pulling Myself Up

Anxiety. What does that word mean to you?

The text book definition:

Noun
a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome

If I were to unpick that definition, I could tell you, broadly, it’s spot on.

Now, I can’t talk for anyone else who suffers with an anxiety disorder because everyone who suffers has different triggers and there are just so many different categories of anxiety; you’ve got OCD, GAD, Specific phobias, panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, separation anxiety, situational anxiety, social anxiety… there is a whole load of anxiety disorders that can be listed and maybe even some that have not been categorised yet.

I personally don’t fall into one particular category. My anxiety has been caused by several different life events leading up to here and now. One reoccurring factor though, is this life-altering thing we all experience at least once in our lifetime, this is a term known as grief.

It’s okay NOT to be okay

I woke up today feeling great. I was like yeah it’s Monday but whatever. It;s a four day week and Easter is approaching and yes boy give me all the chocolate.

It’s also good because I’m going home for Easter, which means I get to spend some time with my mum and my fur babies who I am missing incredible amounts right now. The weekend was such nice weather and sunshine makes everyone so happy and smiley. So yeah, I woke up with the ‘I’ma boss Monday’ feeling.

Of course, one thing happened and it affected my mood quite heavily and I know blah blah you can either let it dampen your whole day or you can just brush it off, forget about it and move on.

Sometimes that’s easy enough and as the morning is progressing, I’m realising that, that little thing has set off a roller coaster of feelings that are certainly not feelings of being okay.

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Today’s post is quite a personally opinionated one – so before I delve into the depths of writing, I’ll state that you do not have to agree with what I’m saying and no harm is meant to those that read….

“Thursday. The most useless day. it only exists as a reminder that it’s been a really long week…and it’s still not over.” What’s everyone’s take on Thursdays? Usually, I don’t personally mind Thursdays, because they remind me that tomorrow is … Continue reading

We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there. This is home.

There will be many places in this life, that you will come to call Home.

Everybody has a different definition of the word. I myself, truly believe that home is not a house, or the mere place, where you live or you grow. It is very much a feeling – a feeling that can create the euphoric sense of comfort that you only get when you are really home.
