I’m a few days late with this post. I figured I would write a post for Mental Health Awareness Day anyway as I feel that we should be open in talking about mental health all the time, not just for one day. I’ve kind of struggled to find the words to write this post and … More Mental Health in the Workplace.
Dear Journal, It’s been a while. I feel like I start every journal post saying this… I should post more often! Things have been pretty up and down. I’ve been finding it increasingly difficult to maintain my mood. Work has been okay. Could be better though if I’m honest. Everyday is the same, I put … More Monday Thoughts.
Happy Friday! How has your week been? Positive and productive I hope! This evening I want to talk about something that has been playing on my mind for quite some time now. I always find myself craving permission, reassurance and certainty. I find that I crave these three things in all aspects of my life … More Fighting Back.
Going and telling a complete stranger that something is wrong is no easy task. It takes courage, strength and confidence. All of which in recent months I have been struggling with. Yesterday was my first day back at my original store. I was really anxious. I got changed into my uniform and my anxiety was … More Taking Back Control.
The cynical part of me thinks “I really don’t have any talents”, do I? But the honest and positive part of me, and the part of me that wants to like myself more says “I do have some talents”. I’m very good at organisation and problem solving. I am really grateful that I have this … More Gratitude Challenge: A Talent You Have.
It’s Monday, my favourite day of the week. A day for new beginnings. Maybe a new outfit, or two. Maybe a new makeup style, or hair do. Today I wanted to share kind of a different post with you. (I hope that’s okay) I mean, I’ve posted a couple of these types of posts in … More GRWM – England Spring Ed.
When I first thought about what I would write about for this post, I was going to write about how I was brave and moved to South Korea by myself. Of course that was such a great thing that I did and experienced. However, recently I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about some of … More Gratitude Challenge: A Challenge You’ve Overcome.
Dear Journal, The past week has been awful. I haven’t been eating properly, and I know this is why I feel exhausted and have excruciating headaches. But I still can’t bring myself to eat. I’m still punishing myself. It seems to be a pattern of mine, no eating, sleeping and self harm are all the … More I Miss Therapy.
Wow, okay. *Deep breaths* A few weeks ago I made a decision that was very hard to make. Saying goodbye is never easy, it doesn’t matter if that person is your friend, your sister, your boyfriend, it doesn’t matter. It’s difficult all round. When I lived in South Korea, I began a relationship with a Korean … More By Loving You, I Lost Myself.
