Look away!

Look away!

I always say that in my head with a mrs tiddlywinkle voice.

Watched a horror film on Netflix last night. It was pretty good. Or certainly the first 2/3 of the film was good.

It was a supernatural thriller that could have easily have been a girl with multiple personalities/schizophrenia that used the cover of a ‘different’ person in the mirror to do the things she didn’t/couldn’t do in real life because she has morals and erm not a murderous streak.

Anyway. It’s the second horror film I’ve watched in a couple of months where the latter part of the film seems to just fall on its arse and you’re left with a bunch of unanswered questions.

I can’t even remember the name of the last one. And it’s not in my Netflix viewing history. So I have no idea what it was.

So. If you’re writing a story make sure it ties up loose ends and it’s not crappy.

You’re doing ok

You’re doing ok

Hey you.

Yeah, You.

I just wanted to tell you that you did good today.

You got through it.

You did it.

Even if all you did was pull yourself out of bed this morning, even if it was really hard to do. You did it.

Even if you didn’t manage to brush your hair but you did manage to brush your teeth today. You did it.

Tomorrow the struggle starts again. And it might be harder than today.

Don’t worry. Take a deep breath, break down your day into tiny baby steps and do each one at a time.

Don’t worry about the full picture. Don’t worry about why you have to get out of bed. Or why you have to put your shoes on.

Just take each bit as it comes and if you get to a bit that you don’t think you can handle, then take a break.

Have a sit down, under a blanket if you need to.

Have a cup of tea. Or a drink of juice. And try again.

If it still feels unachievable at this stage, let it go. Do what you need to make yourself comfortable and feel safe and then try again tomorrow.

You got this.

Your record for getting through the hard days is still 100%

Sweet dreams and good luck out there tomorrow.

Even if ‘out there’ is just the other side of your duvet.

Try and get that one step further out of your comfort zone.

Or try doing something selfish – something just for you.

You deserve it.

And remember that no matter what you did today, be it a marathon or just managing to get out of bed and eat something for the first time in a couple of days, you’re amazing and you matter.

Everyone is fighting their own battles that nobody else can see.

Everyone has problems.

Everyone has demons.

Everyone struggles sometimes.

Be kind.
