snapshots of my week – 8th january

this week has been strange. stressful. not bad, but not particularly good, either. lots of cancelled plans, aches and pains and things to sort through. i think it’s very common at the beginning of the year to not feel settled yet. a lot of people feel happy for a fresh start, a clean slate, what have you ..but i think some forget that life continues on, and if things weren’t particularly great before, they’re not going to suddenly change because a new year has started.

saying this, i really want to be more positive this year, mostly in my thinking. i’m a pessimist at heart and though i always want to remain true to myself, i do need to change this behaviour for my well being and mental health if nothing else.

here’s to a more interesting and upbeat week, next week!

    That wall is gorgeous!
    I know the feeling of being a pessimist, I am too, which is sad because it really does affect our mental health in such a damaging way. Here’s to onwards and upwards, I hope this week is better for you :)

      i have to resist taking a photo every time i go past it!

      when i think back, i realise i’m a LOT more positive-thinking than i was, say, 5 years ago, but there’s still a way to go. any mental health issue is always a work in progress, isn’t it.

      thank you, hope you have a lovely week too!
