Life Update!

It's been a minute hasn't it? But to be honest, in the words of Kourtney Kardashian, I have just been out here living life! I've been on two little staycations with my family, I've been to a festival,  my friends have started turning the big 3-0 and I've got a BOYFRIEND! (*screams internally*)

I feel like I've had a massive shift in my mindset over the last 18 months, which is due to a combo of lockdown making me take a huge step back and start appreciating little things a lot more, meds (I didn't wanna get these for ages cos I thought I hated the thought of depending on a tablet for happiness and that the day I forgot to take it then my life would crash and burn again, but it doesn't feel like that at all and I am reaping the benefits!) and therapy helping me to retrain my thought process from jumping to conclusions and blowing everything out of proportion all the time to realising thoughts are not fact, and processing them that way. 

I've taken a step back from social media, and together with my meds (come thru Sertraline!) I feel like I have actually been genuinely enjoying myself lately. I'm making new memories instead of clinging onto old ones, I love my new flat, I'm enjoying my job, I've been spending more time with my family, I'm fortunate to have such a good group of friends in both London and back home in Preston and I fancy the F out of my boyfriend. So life is pretty sweet!
