Dealing with your cards...

Hello blogland :)

Yes, I know it’s been over two months since I’ve written a post *hangs head in shame* and I wouldn’t blame you if you were a little upset with me. Or a lot upset.

Truth is, I haven’t been feeling very well these past few months. My anxiety and depression has flared up a lot and I found myself having between 1 and 8 panic attacks a day, which isn’t a great experience. I’ve had many blog post ideas lined up such as reviews, days out, recipes etc, but I refrained from posting them as I knew they just didn’t have enough life in them, which was a general reflection of how I felt. So, instead of putting up some crappy work, I wanted to wait until I felt a little better.

This post isn’t just an apology. I wanted to share some advice with you all. Sometimes in life you hit a brick wall. Now this could be your crush being horrid to you, or your mum not allowing you to go shopping with friends. Or it could be something more difficult to understand or deal with, such as a death or some pretty crappy feelings. What I want to say to you is, don’t let that metaphorical wall keep you back from seeing the amazing views on the other side. There are always gonna be shit times in your life (pardon the language), but that’s just the way it is. No ones life is completely smooth running - no matter how much they say it is. But always try and focus on the positives you have going on, a roof over your head, food in the cupboard, friends, family, music, a book you can escape into, the list goes on! It’ll be hard to do this straight away, but it’s all about training your mind and learning to focus on the bigger picture. I believe in you.

You have two choices, let the worries/problems/stress defeat you, or keep fighting and never look back.

You can do this. We can do this.

Love always,
