How is everyone doing? I hope you all are feeling ok and if you are not remember it is ok not to be ok. It’s official the snow days are over back to work tomorrow, ah well it was good while it lasted. I guess it is kind of reminds me of my bipolar cycles, sooner or later things will go back to normal. I must say I am usually a ball of excitement right about now, but this year I am really struggling to get into the Christmas spirit as much as I used too. Maybe it is down to my anxiety being a massive pain in the arse? Maybe it is down to the stress I have been going through? Maybe it is down to the fact I am growing up? Erm no, not that one.
Blogmas Day 12 is here, again thank you to you all for your support it has been an amazing journey so far and I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am. I am discovering writing these posts are really helping me concentrate on certain areas of my mental health that I don’t really take notice of. Well, it’s time for the main event of the evening…
Blogmas Day 12 – I’m sorry Santa isn’t real!
I am sorry to break it to you all but yes it is true Santa is not real. A jolly big man in a red suit is not going to come down your chimney and make your dreams come true. As heartbreaking as that sound doesn’t mean our dreams aren’t going to come true. It means why depend on someone else to make that possible.
This is your mental health journey, this is your choices and this is your recovery. Be your own Santa!
This Christmas is going to be hard for me this time last year I found out I was pregnant and lost the baby 3 days before Christmas also my family isn’t in a great position which means I won’t see much of them over the holidays. But you know what instead of being brought down from memories’ and flashbacks, I going to celebrate the things I have.
I am going to celebrate my first Christmas as a homeowner, I going to celebrate spending the holidays with the people I want around me. This Christmas is going to be me focusing on the small victories the present’s that a Santa can’t put under the Christmas tree.
My advice is not try on focus on the presents that people give you but the presents you can give yourself towards improving your mental health over Christmas.
Until tomorrow people!
Take care all
