All I Need's A Little Time



Gosh it's really blowing a hooley outside. The rain against my bedroom window is almost deafening. How horrid. 
The weather lately as a whole has been awful and it's certainly not doing my mood any good. Saying that, I can't say that I'm not feeling a little better, and these days have mostly been pushing upwards. 
I have taken a lot of time to myself to just be with 'myself'. I feel almost like I'm evolving in some way, more positive, wiser and creative. Trouble is when you go through transitions like this you have to make a conscious effort to get to know the new you. If you don't you'll find that you're clashing subconsciously with this new person and you'll be stressed without even knowing why. 

Coming out of a breakdown can feel like putting yourself back together like a jigsaw puzzle. Slowly picking up pieces and putting them back in place, with some new shiney ones in there too. You really have to force yourself to just 'be' and get to know yourself. Why? Because you are your closest friend, all the way from your birth til your death. 
The most important thing you can do is to look after yourself. Make time for yourself. Check up on yourself. Even treat yourself to a coffee on a cold, wet and windy day just you and yourself getting to know each other. You never know, what you find may surprise you. Have you ever told yourself to be proud of who you are? Because you should, every day. 

As I said (and I hope I don't jinx it) I'm slowly on the up. These days I'm really just trying to keep myself busy doing things that I enjoy. It means that a lot of things are changing around me, but it's all for the better. Routine and planning are helping a lot, also making me feel a bit more productive. 
Hopefully this should lead to my poor neglected blog being busier, and I've even created a new YouTube channel as my old channel was too miss-matched for my liking. You can find it here: www.youtube.com/islandbeachbunny Videos will be up soon so watch this space.
