Fairylights and Memories (Little Things #1)

This is inspired by Two Different World’s who posts 10 Happy Things each week.

Mental Health

Scrap the Blues

Today was another small step forward.

I’m not going to go into detail in this post but basically I have very erratic emotions and thoughts which results in intense bouts of intensely low mood but also highs. It’s plain confusing and so mentally exhausting. Sometimes I feel so drained that I’m left being the emotional equivalent of a cabbage. I’ve had a lot of doctors appointments over the years, the majority of which resulted in nothing really being done and being told it was ‘probably just because I was a teenager’.

New Beginnings

It’s hard to start. People often say ‘starting is the easy part’ and that committing is where it gets difficult. That’s why people don’t stick to diets, regular exercise, even relationships. But you can’t carry on doing something if you haven’t even begun. And finding the courage to start something new can be tough. I’ve wanted to start a blog for years now but I’ve always managed to pussy out of it because ‘I don’t have the time’ and ‘no one will read it anyway’. But mostly because I’m a lazy shit. Because sometimes no matter how much I tell myself things like ‘there’s no time like the present’ and ‘if you don’t start now, you never will’ and ‘remember what Shia LaBeouf taught you’ I just won’t get round to doing it.
