hey dolls, I’ve been M.I.A over the last few weeks. I moved house at the end of June so I’ve been a bit busy plus I’ve only managed to get the internet sorted in the last week. This month has been quite difficult. I’ve been really struggling to find my balance; I’ve been feeling tired and run down constantly like I’m going to burn out. In short I’ve not been happy, I’ve not been able to shake this feeling for the last 3 weeks. I feel lost; like I don’t know who I am anymore, each morning I recognise the person in the mirror less. I’ve felt stuck for a while. But I’ve found my family constantly asking me why I’m feeling the way I am and telling me I need to change my life has been infuriating and has been making me feel worse.
- Take yoga & pilates classes – I’ve been trying to find myself a fitness class near my new house so I can go after work without having to travel far. I’ve always enjoyed both yoga and pilates and I’ve been trying to do a little yoga each day at home but I think I’ll be more motivated if I’m in a class.
- Meditation – This week has been the turning point really. I can’t work out why I’ve been so down and I’m tired of feeling lost but trying pretending I’m okay. I decided earlier this week that I wanted to take up meditation; I have no idea if it will help but it’s worth a try. I had a look on the internet and found that there is a Buddhist priory in Telford so I’ve contacted them and I’m looking forward to going and starting this journey.
- Taking a raw food nutritionist course – as you all know, I turned vegan for lent and as I notice some significant benefits to my health I decided to stick with it. Don’t get me wrong some days I have a cheat day which will usually consist of a vegetarian pizza as cheese is the only thing I really miss from my pre-vegan days (my personal favourite is Papa Johns mediterranean vegetable. Just… My word!). I decided because I’m really interested in healthy eating and being healthy in general I decided to buy a raw food nutritionist course as I want to increase my understanding and I actually miss studying which when I finished Uni I never thought I miss the work.
- Find myself – I’m not quite sure how I’m going to accomplish this one; I don’t if it will require some sort of spiritual awakening or just giving myself more than one day a week to recharge and unwind but even if I begin to regain even a little piece of myself that will be a great start.
