I can’t believe its August! Where has this year gone?
Whenever I reflect on a length of time, so it might be the fact that January was 7 Months ago, or my birthday was 9 months ago, I always think about the time in between and what has been accomplished or how I have felt.
Something I think about daily is being at ease with who I am as a person. And I often think about the person that I want to be. I am the person I have to spend most of my time with, for the rest of my life, so trying to understand how I work and better myself is important to me. Admittedly I can spend too much time overthinking, but on the whole reflecting on words and actions and thought patterns can be helpful.
I think I can be quite hard on myself as well, which I’m sure isn’t uncommon in most people, but I try to remind myself that its okay to not be okay, and it’s okay to not be perfect. When something is troubling me, playing on my mind, rather than shut it out, I try to listen to it, feel it and then act accordingly. In one day, probably helped by social media, we see so many images of perfection, stunning scenery, beautiful homes, perfect bodies, that it’s hard to measure up. Most of the time these things aren’t important, but somehow, even perhaps without realising most of us give them importance. Or I know I do.
Can anyone relate? Let me know your stories!
