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 looking back, I don't think I've regretted it and all the new things I've done, learnt about myself or people I've met. I guess learning about myself and continued self development never really stops. And truth be told, I'm loving every minute of it. 

It's almost 5:00 am and I'm up before my alarm...... WHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY  *rolls my sleepy eyes*. But I've really been up since 3:00 am and I've had my first cup of magical fluid (aka coffee). So today is definitely going to be filled with a few more cups of this magical fluid. Coffee really does get my productivity levels going. I've been writing down to my thoughts and ideas concerning content for my blog (because my thoughts are in abundance but it's gets crazy in my head sometimes). So if you're reading this and have any ideas for me, feel free to share. I'm new to this and if you've been writing and/or blogging, chances are you already know some secrets.... so dish lol. 

See you soon.....


Toodles,

P.s. To the German, thank you for your ideas from before and encouragement from across the seas.

It's the new year....

So it's the new year.....HAPPY 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…

Happily Anxious

Hi there, 
So I have been experiencing anxiety on a different level lately. On most days I can get through the day and not feel too drained. But these past weeks, I have been feeling drained. Just deciding what to write and post send me into overthinking and what ends up happening is nothing, which is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. 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…

Almost Perfect Sunday

Happy Sunday!

Are you ready for the week ahead? I am not quite sure if I am but I going to definitely try to be positive about things that I might encounter.

Quote for week: "It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not".

Last week, my anxiety kicked in and I did start to write the blog, because the aim is to post every Sunday and for special things or experiences. During the week the ideas were all there, but on Sunday..... nothing. So I shut down my laptop and only turned it back on today. I can easily talk myself out of doing things or going places. Today is a good day and I got things done today. I woke up early and sat outside having my coffee. This quiet time is important for quieting all the noise in my head. I took the time to listen to the birds and look at the formation of the clouds in the sky (which I love). I totally enjoyed this and I think this might be new Sunday morning ritual.

I LOVE COFFEE!!!
I also like to have my fi…
