Something happened today – something that hasn’t happened in a while – I decided I wanted to write. About what though? I’m still not quite sure, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out along the way.
I feel different to how I felt six months ago – I feel more like myself than I’ve felt in a while. I feel like a better version of me. I know that sounds completely ridiculous and completely cliché, but fuck it, I’m not writing this to sound profound or ground-breaking. I’m writing this because this is how I feel. I’m writing this because I’m actually enjoying writing it.
Some other stuff has changed too – I have a new job and I have new hair (okay so I have had blonde in my hair before, it’s never been so snapchatable though). I’m walking to work every single day and I’m actually enjoying it. That might have something to do with my FitBit and its ability to tap into my competitive side. My competitive nature hasn’t always worked in my favour – turns out if you’re rubbish at stuff, being competitive is pretty shit. Luckily, it’s easy enough for me to smash my step goal when I’m walking over 2 miles each way every day (sorry Olivia).
Some things are still the same. I’m still trying every day to write at least one thing that I’m grateful for. If I could recommend one thing it would be to do this – it helps to keep everything in perspective. It’s also quite nice to read back over all the lovely things you have in your life.
I’m still being mindful (or at least trying my best). Turns out walking for 70 minutes every day is pretty good for taking in my surroundings, taking in the weather, taking in the people walking around me. I don’t listen to any music (that may be because I don’t own any headphones that don’t fall off my pea-head when I walk…) and it’s actually pretty nice.
So that’s about it really – I started typing without really knowing where I would go with this and here I am.
TLDR – it’s all good.
Until next time,
