o0o Well the poor counsellor probably needed a bex and a lie-down after she had finished her first hour with me the other day! It was pretty much like shaking up a coke bottle then flipping off the lid. A whole damn lot of built-up stuff just came spewing forth… Continue reading »
o0o I broke. Plain and simple – i broke… This past fortnight – my mind just couldn’t keep itself together anymore, and i broke… I went to the Doctor back before we went to New Zealand, just for a general annual checkup; and when we were finishing up, I… Continue reading »
o0o One of the things that give me ‘anticipatory’ anxiety, is Mondays – the day before I have to go back to my paid job. Whilst I am winding it down, and getting it to a place where I can hand it off to someone else; I need to… Continue reading »
o0o Breathe. You’re going to be okay.
o0o Recently – I have felt myself spiraling in panic. This is not a ‘new’ sensation for me. When parts of my life are not running smoothly and for some reason,
o0o Its only a matter of days now, before we leave on our much-needed vacation, so as you can imagine I am neck deep in planning and organising, which for me means the there are lists aplenty going on! Lists for whats already packed, lists for what still… Continue reading »
o0o So after talking about how difficult making friends is – and how bloody rubbish I am at it – a strange thing happened the week before last… I had two ‘coffee dates’!! One Friday – one the following Monday. The one on Friday was the second time I… Continue reading »
o0o Its gone… After my post about dental distractions the other day – sadly the delight and belief didn’t pan out this time around – and whilst it initially seemed to be getting better, after a night of almost no sleep other than fitful dozing; and taking faaaaar too… Continue reading »
o0o Friends – thats todays subject! Is it just me, or do others find it incredibly hard to make super-close friends? I have a lot of people that I know that I can go have a cuppa, a meal, a wine etc with, or that I chat to with… Continue reading »
Ready to cheer me on? I told you a week or two ago in the smoking gun post, that I was going to do it – and now here I am!! As of last night – I am a non-smoker. A former smoker, an ex-smoker – call it… Continue reading »
. 1. You are not your body and your body is not you but you best look after each other anyway. You might be together for a while. 2. You’ll never have more potential than you do right now, so find a way to use more of what you’ve… Continue reading »
. Its a year on from my “one step at a time” post – and I’m reflecting a bit about where I am now as opposed to this time last year. Some things haven’t yet changed. I am still at my job as a Manager, I am still working… Continue reading »
Strength doesn’t come from what you can do; it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t do. When you are at your lowest point, you are open to the greatest positive change. Happiness is not the absence of problems, but the strength to deal with… Continue reading »
. It was a bit of a shit ending to 2017 for me… I somehow managed to put my back out again – whilst getting up from the toilet. How does that even happen!?!? I spent that day being pretty damn teary and miserable – I didn’t feel like… Continue reading »
. In Part 2 we’re ready to talk more about those other things on the list in my previous post, namely: clothing, takeaways (food/coffee), cigarettes/alcohol, car expenses, meals, hairdresser / hair products / mani-pedis, social events and growing-your-own. So – lets get into it!!
. Today is different. Today I got out of bed quite well rested. I had a really decent sleep last night, because it rained through the night, and i always sleep soooo much better when it rains. I have also taken a fortnight off work – which actually winds… Continue reading »
. I only work three days a week – Tues, Wed, Thurs – so I am lucky in that I get a four-day weekend. In theory… But these days – my work environment ramps up my anxiety like almost nothing else – so after those three days, I spend Friday… Continue reading »
. I’m having a bit of a ‘comparison’ dilemma at the moment and whilst I know that comparing oneself to others is never a healthy or helpful thing – I’m just not quite sure how to get it “out of my system”… It makes it that much harder – because… Continue reading »
After yesterdays mammoth post, I thought today would just be a ‘quickie’ 🙂 Sometimes – just cleaning up and sorting out a small corner of your home, can make a huge difference to how you feel about the rest of the day. I had had one of those mornings where… Continue reading »
What a wonderful way to start my ‘me-time Monday’..!
