looking back over old blog posts, part two...

I never knew my previous blog posts would give me so much reassurance, reassurance that my life is getting better, that I'm doing something right.

Just over a year ago I created a post called looking back over old blog posts, part one... I kinda enjoyed it so I'm back for round two. Admittedly I just let my eyes shimmy across the posts until a sentence popped out and here we have this blog post creation! Looking back over old posts makes me cringe, looking at the layout, the way I created photos but to be honest that was clearly exactly how I wanted to create it back then so I can see all signs of improvement really.

It's been just over a month since I last sat down, typed some dribble and posted it. I think now it's time to create some more highly sophisticated (not gonna lie, my brain couldn't even spell sophisticated) ..ok, ok...waffle.

You want waffle? You've come to the right place. A place where the clue is in the name...'a whole lot of chitty chat'.

I've created some little quotey snaps to break this post up a little bit. I understand that some of the words are slightly faint but I wanted them to be that way because these are all words from my past. If you struggle to read them just zoom in a little bit more :) ...


Oh, you don't understand how much I wish this was the case but I'm sooooo, soooo, soooo glad I did the lessons and passed my test because now my life has changed and improved so much. Hello freedom, hello almost full time job! EEEEKKK & ARRRGGGHHH!!!

If you are feeling like the open road is far, far away in the future don't worry, it'll be here for you sooner than you realise, just keep moving forward.

Once upon a time I was struggling to leave the house, now I struggle to stay in the flippin thing! I'm so grateful for these days now because I've had them taken away from me before and let's be honest, we never know what is around the corner. Anxiety, please play ball and don't appear so badly again.

I still go by this, take each day is it comes because some days will be harder than others but good days are always around the corner. I tend to live alot more in the now, don't worry too much about the future but hey, I live with anxiety...worry will always be a part of me.

Always, always, always get back up again! What's the saying? Get knocked down seven times, stand up eight? Yes, do that!

Absolutely 100% still go by this! Don't be so hard on yourself, nothing is perfect but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try your very best.

If something works for someone but doesn't work for you, don't get down about it or defeated. Try another way, there will be a way to improve your life.

I felt like I heard this a lot! 'You should' is two words that seem to add so much pressure. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's had a sentence said to them which starts with, you should...

Ooooh, I do enjoy looking back over old things I've said, how I used to feel, how I used to see things.

I've also missed my little space on here too! I love just opening up a fresh post page and tapping away at the keys on my keyboard...I'm going to share a new movie on here soon. I'm not adding any pressure to myself, this blog is about expressing myself, having fun, enjoying life. Not hitting 'deadlines', scheduling posts. That just isn't me.
