Location: sitting this one out in the safety cupboard
I am currently:
STOP. Do this NOW!
I hope that got your attention. Because everyone can do this, regardless of if you've had an amazing day or the worst day ever.
Please take part in my* amazing idea by writing two good things that you've done/that have happened today. However small or big, there's always at least two things to be thankful for in a day. Whilst life is indeed terribly woeful and unfair, it's important to take a moment to be grateful for the good things that we do have :)
I've put this in GSA instead of GC, so you know, it's legit to mention mentals, but let's keep it light folks!
-Today I procured a tasty yet utterly bizarre frog cake, and there was some tip-top** butter icing in the middle. YUM.
-I also got to help my best friend move out of the crisis house, and she is making me dinner and there is After Eight cheesecake for desert =D
GO GO GO FOLKS!
*that's a blatant lie, it was Jodie's idea
**use of bizarre writing style encouraged but not imperative
We’ll find a way to fight it, we always have.
It's not how tragically we suffer but how miraculously we live.
I got myself a lush bath bubble bar thing and am planning to destress later by having a nice warm bath with it (it is called the "comforter" and I need comforting!) this is because I've been very stressed and tired at Uni at the moment and decided to try to care for myself in a nice way this evening. So buying the bubble bath was a good thing.
The other good thing was that my supervisor asked to see me which made me really panic but she was helpful and has sorted out my results for me to make them look good on my report. So even though it was scary it turned out to be good.
I managed to get my point across to the people at the dentist who cancelled my contract and sent me a rather rude and factually incorrect letter. When they apologised and offered to put me back on the contract I told them thanks but this was the last straw after years of issues with them. They are giving me back half my money!
Secondly I got a letter from Linda, a child I sponsor, and it is the first time she wrote to me herself
the summer school I am meant to be working at contacted me with the offer of paying for my transport AND accommodation for the 2 weeks. Not sure if I can do it yet, complicated stuff, but it's nice to know that they think I am good enough to be offered that
- This morning's therapy session really helped me feel more *myself*, consequently I was pretty good at work again this afternoon. Hugely relieved about this as it reminds me again that The Grumps don't consume and destroy everything after all.
- I said 'hello' to my flatmate when I got in this evening. I know it's not a huge thing [unless you've read my thread in Serious in which I describe how much rage and hatred I've been feeling at her..] but I'm proud of myself for doing so.
-I made plans today to meet up with my friend and her baby (my god-daughter) this week. I know that doesn't sound like a huge achievement, but I haven't seen them for ages due to being in crazy mode and not leaving the house for a while.
-My baby niece, who has been ill for the best part of a month, is improving and started eating properly again today :D
