Falling In Love With Life Again

Yesterday was World Mental Health Day. Social media was full of positive quotes and stories being shared. It was uplifting but also incredibly overwhelming. I talk a lot about mental health and my struggles with my own but I still balk at going into specifics because it's hard. It's hard to write down or even speak aloud something that you've only recently begun to acknowledge.

I discovered this when I sat down last night to try and put my mental health journey into words for a blog post. I came up blank. It actually made me feel incredibly anxious and overwhelmed. I guess I'm still not ready to talk about it. However I can talk about how much I'm loving life at the moment. My mental health is a big part of how I got here and I'm gonna share it in a short but sweet post for Blogtober day eleven.

I began this year utterly miserable and I stayed miserable for a good part of it. I wrote this short post in March and I described myself as "a bunch of broken pieces [being held together] by happy moments, good people and force of will." I'm not saying that this isn't still true but the pieces are being held together by a whole lot more now.

I am truly loving life at the minute. I'm in a new job that I'm really enjoying. I've travelled to and am travelling to amazing places. I'm following my passions with my makeup artistry and my blog. I feel like I'm finally getting into a good rhythm with life. I'm doing things that I love and that make me happy. I still have my off days, it's still a struggle to get out of bed sometimes and I still battle with my own thoughts every day. I'm strong enough to overcome those though. I am strong and I will survive. If that's not too corny to say 😂  Here's to the rest of 2017 and overcoming any obstacles that come my way 👊🏻
