What a week.
It was one of those weeks where everything happened all at once. A relative passed away, an ex-boyfriend got back in touch, and spoiler alert: things with M and I have ended (although it’s never that simple is it?) suddenly. Needless to say, I spent a lot of week feeling miserable and crying.
Trying to find the good in the last seven days hasn’t been easy, especially when my mind hasn’t been so kind to myself and all I’ve wanted to do is build a fort with my duvet.
I’m glad to say I’m feeling so much more positive today. Onto some of my favourite things this week:
Old Facebook updates – I was trawling back through my Facebook profile because who doesn’t like a bit of nostalgia at 11pm on a Friday night? Aside from the cringe I used to post (thankfully deleted now), I remember how happy I was, and it kind of made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Twitter friends – I’m so grateful every day to be part of such a supportive and loving community on Twitter. I’d gone MIA for the best part of a week and I came back to a few people asking where I was, and hoping that I was okay. And you know what? It’s kindness from strangers I’ve never met that makes me realise how lovely people can be.
Taking a break – I took a little break from blogging and writing this week, mainly because of the shit storm that this week was, but also because I didn’t feel talented enough anymore. Talking of which, I’m sorry I didn’t post something yesterday but, my mental wellbeing was my number one. You know?
Finally, I don’t want to sound preachy BUT please consider donating what you can to the crisis in Aleppo. Perhaps the price of your daily coffee, or how much you were going to spend on that extra Christmas present. The world is cruel, but humanity will always win. You can donate to Oxfam, Save the Children, and the International Committee of the Red Cross among many others. By the way, it took me less time to donate than it did for the kettle to boil.
