Making time for me

04:34


This week has been a weird one. Since Monday my anxiety has been on all time high and Wednesday was the worst. Controlling how your brain reacts to certain situations, or in my case all situations, is really hard and a challenge everyday. Taking each day as it comes seems to be harder some weeks than others.

On Wednesday evening I sat down and had a good talk with my husband, tried to explain to him why I was feeling like I was. It really helped, he does try and he seems to know the signs now but I know he struggles. He is a good man and I don't know what I would be with out him and also very lucky to have my Keri-Anne. That evening I facetimed her and she gave me some tips on how she copes with her day to day and she inspired me to pick the blossom you see in the pictures.

Keri-Anne wrote a great post on her blog recently about just doing something for yourself. No other reason but because you want to. Not to gain anything but your own satisfaction. You can read it here: For No Reason At All.

With the help of my husband and Keri-Anne's blog post, they have inspired me to just do things for myself. To create because I want to create, not for gain or approval but because I love creating. So today I have so far, picked some yellow flowers from the garden and made a crown, taken pictures of flowers, watched episodes of Outlander, which is making me want to be on my holiday in Scotland sooner rather than later and now I am about to sit down and do some sewing. Sewing is my escape when I am at home and not out on adventures with my boy. Today is a day for me, to do what I want and not worry about the future and I am enjoying it.

I intend on doing this more often and have decided to do a monthly reflection to help me be more positive and rational in my thoughts. I can't wait to share my first with you all at the end of the month.

  1. I really love this! I also suffer from anxiety and I am in the habit of making myself feel guilty when I can't cope with things but I am starting to realise more and more that I need to take time out for myself. To spend days in the garden reading and writing and doing the things I love not for anyone else but for me. It is so important. Thanks for sharing this :)

    1. I have found recently that most people suffer with it and its so normal. We need to start realising we are normal. :) Glad my post has helped in some way.x
