I often think about how much I would like to achieve on any given day, my day is full of focus and a willingness to improve, then I open my eyes and all of my good intentions seem to leave, when I thought about blogging it was my intention to create a sense of enthusiasm and positivity and a zest for life, I thought about how much I had achieved in my life and the positive changes I have made, then life got in the way and my depression hit once again and life seemed different to what I wanted, energy and enthusiasm left me feeling like a wet weekend on a rugged coastline without either coat or umbrella.
It isn’t all doom and gloom, I have been labelled with Unstable Emotional Personality Disorder and just gone through 16 weeks of Psychotherapy, we have many areas of our lives that cause us anguish or discomfort and can be quite debilitating at times.
We discover those traits that limit us, our beliefs, our thoughts and our lack of confidence, we may not be in a position to alter the events that have happened in our lives or how we had reacted too them, however we can make positive changes from today, we can enjoy life if we change our attitudes towards it, accept that things happen to which we may have no control over, we can control how we feel and how we react.
We all have to have a starting point
This is my starting point on my new journey to losing weight, pre lockdown I reduced my weight to 12st 13 so as you can see I have put on quite a lot of weight but hopefully through healthy eating, drinking more water and regular exercise things will improve.
In the words of the title of a song from the 90s, THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER.
How very true, life is a sequence of both good times and bad times however it is how we react to them that determines our character.
One thing that I have been doing recently is videos of myself making mocktails, some of you will know that it is 25 years since I stopped drinking and the range of alcohol free drinks and the way that people have developed the way of making alcohol free cocktails makes such a difference.
