• Positive Tuesdays: The One When I Went To Ireland.

    Hiiiiiii guys, it’s Tuesday it’s time to be positive about the previous week. I’ve had a great one but also a very, very tough one in my little brain. It’s a strange feeling when you’re stuck in your recovery, when you also feel so lonely but you have amazing people around you…you just need those extra ones to show they care. OKAY NO, this is not the name of the game, if I want to be a negative Nelly then I will make a whole new post. Anyway, this week was full of fun! To be fair I missed the previous week because I was in Dublin last week, so…

  • Positive Tuesdays, they’re back!

    Oh my god HI. I’m bringing back Positive Tuesdays, if you were about in my Uni days you’ll know all about these. Have a look here, there’s loads! I enjoyed doing this, let me fill you in on the dealio with these. Every Tuesday I will look back on the week I’ve had and pick out all the good things, it’s a day of positive reflection. A moment to focus on the good and forget any of the bad and document it to look back on when I need to! I loved doing it back when I was struggling at university. It did help, it helped slightly then however I…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Ten. UPDATES.

    Hiiiiii, been a while hasn’t it (almost a month)…my bad. I didn’t want to do these posts when in fact I haven’t felt positive at all, I’m not going to put on a front I’ve never been that kind of person. If I’m unhappy, I’m unhappy and I won’t pretend to be okay and lie to everyone and tell you all to be happy and positive if I’m not myself. I’ve had a crappy few weeks, unsure of what I’m doing, my life is a big mess. I don’t really know where I’m going or what I’m doing so if anyone has any advice on the struggles of university I’d…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Nine.

    Busy, busy week full of cool things and lots to be positive about despite my ongoing sadness and general feeling of being bummed out that is currently happening…I feel a blog post is necessary about all of this because I feel like I’m doing these Positive Tuesdays for no reason personally just lately, I’ve had a hard time. But no, I must definitely recognise the good things so I shall continue with these posts and hope that I can influence anyone who reads it! I want to show that even in the darkest of times there are things to be happy about and there are good things that happen even…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Eight.

    Hiiii! Once again, I’ve not been in the best state of mind ever but I’m taking steps to make it better – working on CBT skills I once learnt and just generally looking after (or trying) myself. I’ll get there eventually, I must keep that mentality up! The past week has held some good times mind you and of course, it’s Positive Tuesday I’m going to share all of those things with you! You know, happiness is all about the little things isn’t it? Well, my flat mate and I ordered our first university Dominos and it was absolutely beautiful. Things like that are truly the most wonderful moments, anything…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Seven.

    Hello! Yep, I missed another week didn’t I so let’s start a fresh, let’s not focus on the weeks I missed. This is now week 7 okay, but it’s probably 7 and 8 I don’t know…I’M CONFUSED, JUST IGNORE ALL OF THAT.  The past couple of weeks haven’t been my best mentally, I’ll be honest. I won’t lie and say I’ve been a radiant ball of positivity because I really haven’t. I’ve been having a tough time, questioning a lot of things but I’m figuring it out or at least trying. I’ll get back on my feet, I always manage to even when it seems impossible. If I’ve done it…

  • Positive Tuesdays: (Not on a Tuesday) Weeks Five and Six.

    Hiiiiiii! Yes, I understand it’s actually Friday and I haven’t done one of these in 2 weeks now but hey, I’m now a student and I have things to do, people to see, Doritos to eat. It’s been a mad couple of weeks, I’ve been finally settling in after week four of ‘Positive Tuesdays’  and it now kinda feels like home here in my little bedroom in London with my flatmates who already feel like family. We can just talk about anything and everything, I love it. Okay so here are all the good things that have been happening… last week my best friends India and Damian got engaged!!! We’ve literally…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Four – UNIVERSITY.

    Helllooooo! As you can see in the title this one is about the thing I’ve been going on about for months and months, my good thing for the week is that I am finally at University! I moved on Saturday, I actually did it. On Friday I had the biggest wobble of all, even contemplating not moving at all and just giving up before I’d given it a chance and I stayed in bed all day when I had jobs to do before leaving but I couldn’t face doing anything because that meant everything was real and it was actually happening, very scary. But I did it, my dad packed…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Three.

    Hiiiiiii everyone! How are you doing? It’s quite a miracle that I have actually committed to doing this ‘Positive Tuesdays’ for a 3rd week running, well done me, I deserve a pat on the back for doing such a simple task, gosh! It’s been quite a week for me if I’m honest, anxieties and such were all over the place but all quite valid if I’m honest – I leave for London on Saturday! And with that my mum wasn’t well, neither was I at the beginning of last week so it’s all been a little bit crap but why would I possibly dwell on the negatives on a post…

  • Positive Tuesdays: Week Two.

    Helllloooo! I haven’t posted since this time last week and I do apologise, maybe you haven’t even noticed my short absence but I’ve been at Reading Festival! That’s all I’ve done the past week and I really wanted to make a whole separate post for that tomorrow or something so you’ll just have to wait for that and it’ll be my ‘good thing for the week’. So this whole new thing is about me being positive and to hopefully get any of you to think positively too, but isn’t it a bit hypocritical of me to try to enforce positivity when I’m still having a hard time mentally? I think…
