Here we are the 1st of March, has time travel been invented and no one has told me about it because how are we 3 months into this year! What the actual fuck! It feels like it was just last week I was ringing in the new year with a board game and Chinese food with friends and now I am approaching my 29th birthday.
Well, lets slide past the birthday talk and on to something a bit more joyful. Even though these last 3 months have not been easy actually lets not sugar coat it they have been shit, I am discovering more and more I am stronger than I thought I was. When I do my tiny victories of the day list I can see it in black and white in front of me, nothing is going to beat me. Yes, I still have issues and my mental illness is always going to play a part in my life. It is just up to me to make sure that part is just an extra, a small tree in the background and not the star of the show we call life.
This brings me on to my tip of the day… give your self a self high-five!
You got out of bed today – SELF HIGH FIVE
You had a shower and got dressed – Self HIGH-FIVE
You ate three meals today – SELF HIGH-FIVE
You responded to a friend text message – SELF HIGH-FIVE
I think you get the drift here; you may have done those things when your mind was trying to drag you back to the dark place. This is so important life those damn lemons at you, so give yourself a break you are doing your best and that is what matters. If a lemon hits you in the face don’t even throw it back, as by dusting yourself off and carrying on moving forward as that is the best revenge.
I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not remember that it is ok not to be ok.
