I don’t really know how I’m going to start this post, where it’s going to go or how I’m going to write it but we shall see. Life never gives you what you want without a rollcoaster of events, sometimes they are spread apart whilst others are all squashed together; hitting you all at once like rush hour on the tube. The question is how do we cope? Think about all the horrible things we’ve said and done? Regret decisions and mistakes? Start overthinking everything? We feel like we are drowning, gasping for air and it’s a horrible feeling.
In these times you panic then go from being the strong one second to breaking into a million pieces, you forget to breathe. You don’t always have to be the strong one, you’ve got to remember the amazing support you have around you. It’s ok to get upset, we are all human, we all have emotions and we all make mistakes. Honestly at the moment my emotions are great one second then I’m the moodiest bitch going.
The only thing I do in those moments is think about and look at my beautiful boy and realise life is ok, he’s completely oblivious to the world around him, and it’s the pure innocence in his eyes that keep me going. When times get hard it just takes one person to smile, stranger or not to realise all is not bad. Remember the positives, remember to breathe and remember everything will happen for the right reasons. Each day is a fresh start. Smile, ask if people are ok whether you know them well or not, whether it be social media or not. They might just need you, a friendship could form that you never thought could. And in that are many positives (including more coffee).
With so much negativity please try to bring the positivity back with smiles, kindness and self love. Each day at the end of it I always think of 3 things I’m grateful for, 3 positive things that happened and what I can work on another day. Remember to take a few deep breathes, everything gets better over time even in the darkest moments. I really feel like some people might need to hear this.
