It is so evident that writing this blog has helped me deal with a few things that I thought were long gone, forgotten, moved on, line stepped over, leap of faith taken etc. etc. etc. but ohhhh noooooo you may kid yourself Gilly chops but lurking deep down you have still got the pain of the stuff you have not dealt with !!!
Now I am definitely not one who likes to wallow in the mud, unless like a hippo it is therapeutic mud, specially scooped from the refreshing mud ponds of goodness !! (not from my little pond which I was clearing out yesterday, when a little froggy gave me the excuse to leave it well alone) You see one person’s (me) smelly bog of a pond is some other frogs lovely home !!! It’s a dilemma.. I am dealing with it by adding fresh water gently so that eventually the water will be changed without upsetting the little frog family.
Anyway less of frogs more of how writing things down can help you sort out some stuff in your head.
This morning I am well back to good thinking and decided that I really should not eat carbs. Once I have that first nibble – I am addicted and so I am changing my diet again. I am absolutely sure that I am one of those who have a hypo thyroid thing that doesn’t fly up on the blood test radar’s. So I have delved into my own supply of herbs and healthy stuff and already have the Ashwaganda and iodine and I have read up on Dr Axe’s methods of dealing with it in a natural way (link at the bottom of blog) – I will report back in a few weeks to see if the early days are making a difference.
Being kind to yourself is a must.
Also list making is a great way to help you get organised if your memory is lacking a bit.
Make one of your lists a ME List
The biggest thing I know about myself is that I am on a mission, a quest to be happy. Ultimately Happy. I know what it feels like to be unhappy, our minds are amazing and we have the ability to help ourselves be happier.
Also I really believe that we are not designed to have 100 percent happiness all of the time.
We are looking constantly these days at the happiness that people are experiencing (on boats – guilty as charged) at Parties, at their holiday homes, at the nature reserve, at the pub, club, wine bar, The Open, The birthday party, the wedding, Christening … yes… you getting a picture.
Everyone else is having a fabulous time….
Wouldn’t it be a good idea if people put on their “Day” their “Profile” Their instagramm story……
Them, with their face emerged in the cheapest tub of Farm Foods vanilla ice cream ! They are (just to add effect) in a onesie, it’s got gravy spilled down it, their hair is greasy and they have rubbish all around them, like unwashed cups, bits of left over take away … ok enough now.
But come on, no one wants to be seen like that do they?
So we just get to see the glammed up super pic’s – airbrushed and filtered, stomach’s held in, cheeks sucked in, double chins airlifted out, bunny ears in situ to hide “bad hair day” etc etc.
So what we need to do is go “Super Yay for your fabulous Day” I love that you are having such a great time at your pool party (ohhhh It’s hard I know) but switch your mind to gratitude and do what Stephi LaReine says and have a detox from Social Media.
Spend a day at least without logging on !!!! Go on I give us all a challenge 1 day without logging on to any social media… Can ya do it?
I feel shakey at the thought of it. But I will start to diary these social free days. I think it will do me good.
So Being happy, my next few blogs will include a few things about what I have found out about happiness
Enough for now…
Tomorrow we talk Happiness
Thank you everyone – have a lovely day.
Big love and hugs
