What a weekend!
06/02/21 - Today has been a really good day, it was first spent with Max. We went for a walk along the coast, although, it started to rain which was not appreciated by Max and I. Anyway, after a lovely morning with Max, I went back to my place. I had a very exciting evening planned with the girls, I had make sure I looked my best. I will insert a picture below of my flat mates.
Aren't they all looking beautiful?! The night ended up with the 6 of us dancing in the kitchen until we could no longer dance! I remember having to sit down because I am absolutely shattered for all the jumping, dancing and singing. I hit the hay at about 3:30 which is not very good and I will not be staying up that late again.
07/02/21 - I woke up feeling pretty rough this morning but nothing a nice breakfast, tea and a large glass of water couldn't fix. After breakfast and a catch up with the girlies in the kitchen I went to edit a video together. I recorded the footage yesterday but only had time today. I was one of my favourite videos to edit (I will link it below). Also, my sister has been doing my thumbnails, I am in love.
The video was so fun for me to put together because it is advice I wish I heard growing up.
The 20 tips are -
Photography (like appreciate what you have around you)
Schedule yourself (plan) to do list
Question yourself why?
Do yourself school work
Surround yourself around positive people
Karma will come round - stop stressing
Cut out toxic people
Yoga or mediate
Each three meals a day (healthy) but don’t restrict yourself
Shower and dress
Keep an eye of what you are spending
Put your problems into perspective
I believe that all of these are doable tasks that can really help improve mental health. I am currently at a place where I am somewhat content within my own skin. I obviously still have insecurities but nearly every person that has even taken a step into this world has insecurities. I don't think anyone will ever be fully happy within themselves unless they push past everything that is toxic in their life. I am working on it. It was only a recent discovery for me.
I posted a video about being in foster care on my YouTube channel and I had two types of responses. One saying 'Well done for being brave enough to share your experiences and helping others', whereas, the other and I quote 'I accidentally came across your YouTube blog . You looked unprepared and it wasn't factual . If you going to "dis" the people who cared for you and, incidentally went over Social Services head to contact Chams because we were so worried about you , then please have the courtesy to get it right.' This hurt me because I post videos in order to help other and share my side of the story, not get abuse off people who I thought cared for me. I guess the saying “Your biggest fan is a stranger. Your biggest hater is someone you know” is very true, especially given the situation. Anyway, where was I? Yeah, so I brought this up because it drew light upon toxicity. I don't need this type of upset in my life, I only want people that love and care for me in my life. I searched the definition of a toxic person just incase I looked unprepared or if I wasn't being factual. 'A toxic person is anyone whose behaviour adds negativity and upset to your life.'
Anyways, I am going to head out for a run to let some stream off.
Ohhh, I wanted to quickly note that from now on I will be posting one big weekly blog instead of short daily ones. I feel as though this will work better with my current lifestyle. Thank you for all your support so far. <3
