Celebrate The Small Things: 1 April
I think there’s been some bugs going around as a few of us have been feeling unwell this week. I’m also feeling particularly stressed at the moment. There’s no real reason for it, but I get weeks where everything gets on top of me. It’s been a tough year and a few of us have been so focussed on taking care of others that we’ve neglected to make sure we’re well in ourselves. It feels like our lives revolve around hospital visits lately and I worry for some of my loved ones.
When I think about what to write for this each week it helps me to focus on the positives no matter how small they are. We all go through bad patches from time to time, but we still keep moving forward regardless. My friend told me that it was admirable that despite my anxiety I never seem to give up on anything completely. I’ve noticed now that when I’m feeling down I’m much kinder to myself. I remind myself that it’s ok to feel this way and it’ll pass eventually. Things can only improve when you’re at your lowest. This year hasn’t been going as planned, but there are still lots of things ahead to look forward to, such as breaks away and spending quality time with friends. I also had a lovely Easter and have successfully topped up my chocolate supplies. It’s been one of those weeks of chocolate and Disney films, because sometimes it’s just exactly what you need.
