It's the new year....

So it's the new year.....

My First Post....YES!!! 
I've been toying with this for the last year and decided that now is the time. I don't know about you but I enjoyed my 2017. I mean I didn't fall in love or anything (ha!) but there were other things that happened. Work opportunities happened. I said yes to more invitations which led to amazing experiences. I got less panic attacks. I started colouring (AND I LOVE IT). I met some amazing people, both in person and online. I did say goodbye to some people that didn't provide peace in my life (bye felicia!). 

So hello 2018, nice to meet you. I have a strong feeling that we are about to become best friends. I am ready for all the lovely experiences and friendships that are about to happen. I'm embracing my anxiety, learning more about what triggers me and that there is nothing to be ashamed of. In a world full of extroverts, being an introvert takes strength. Only my opinion counts really because my world is introverted. 

Here's hoping you have a wonderful first week of the year. I am about to have fun with my happy planner this week.

When I missed my first deadline to post on this blog, I said that I’d just write it the following day and then the following day came and nothing. And it kept going like this for over three weeks. I have learned to not ignore my anxiousness but to just sit in it. It will pass and I will be able to think through things which would help me to handle it better the next time it appears. Because it will happen, probably just not as frequently. 
I have also realised that the people that you surround yourself with give off energies and I seem to pick up on their energies. When their energies are positivr and happy it’s amazing, because they leave you fe…

Starting Again.

Hi there, 
It's been forever..... and I'm going to be honest.  My anxiety kicked in, I froze up and just kept postponing writing. But something happened yesterday and two friends talked me through it and all I thought about was that I needed to write and express myself. Sooooooo I'm back. YAY!!
Honestly, I think (and by think I mean know) I'm unnecessarily hard on myself and I want everything to perfect before I start something, which is another reason why I haven't pounded this keyboard in months. But, while I know that things can never always be  perfect, I've decided to make a greater effort to remind myself that it is ok not to be perfect all the time or wait for this somewhat unattainable perfection. It's quite possible that's this has been holding me back in experiencing new things (self revelation, yay for me!). In fact, maybe about 2 years ago I made a conscious decision to say YES to new experiences, which was uncomfortable as hell sometimes but …
