I want to start doing these types of ’round-up’ posts on my blog at the end of every month, as I am a strong believer in reflecting on the positive, and negative in life. My therapist also suggested that I start to write down one positive thing I’ve done at the end of every day, so here’s to progress.
Honestly, February has been a bit of a blur to me. I feel as though it’s been one of those months that has just flown by before you realise it’s even properly begun. But for such a short month, I seemed to have accomplished more this month than I imagined I ever would.
For starters, I signed up to the gym which I am so excited about. That means that I can finally get to where I want to be regarding my body image with any luck, and just work on cherishing and looking after my body for once. At the end of the day, our bodies deserve to be loved sometimes as well as our minds, so I am super excited to be starting a new hobby which I hope will continue for a long time.
I also started my new job this month which is also such a big step for me. When it comes to applying to new jobs, I get extremely worried about factors which the job may involve before even starting the job. For example, what if I mess up the interview? What if I make no new friends? What if I end up being completely rubbish at my job? I tried my best to push those thoughts aside… and guess what? I got the job and have happily and successfully (I hope!) just done by second day.
However, there are also certain things that I need to work on next month. One being, cutting myself some slack. A while ago, I promised myself that I would not pressure myself to be a ‘perfect’ version of myself. This is also something in which I discussed with my therapist the other day, and it pleases me to say that for a while, I haven’t bothered about ‘needing’ to be ‘perfect.’ On the other hand, I seem to have done that a lot this month, and I need to remind myself that I’m not perfect. I will say and do things I regret, but that’s okay. My mistakes simply mean I’m human.
I hope you enjoyed this rambling / different sort of post. I want to continue to do one of these every month, so let me know what you think in the comment box below.
Love and happiness always,
