It’s been awhile since I last blogged, so I thought I’d share a little update about what’s been happening in my life.
Firstly, mental health. I went through an emotionally draining period recently and my anxiety had me feeling like I was a prisoner to so many overwhelming, intrusive and unbearable thoughts. I’ve gone through this before, but I haven’t quite mastered how to deal with it and prevent it from taking a toll on me. Eventually, I sought help and had some antidepressants prescribed. When I started this blog, I wanted it to be safe space for me to freely share details about my life, the good and the bad. However, giving details about the causes of my anxiety attacks isn’t easy, so I won’t do that for now. I do, however, want everyone who will read this to know that you’re never alone. If you’re ever going through something, I hope you get the courage and strength to get the help that you need.
Secondly, this is Lola. I got her a few days ago and we’ve had a great time bonding. She’s a great companion, loves cuddling just as much as I do and can get a little sassy whenever she feels like it. She peed on me the day I got her then pooped in my shoes a few hours later. Luckily I’ve managed to potty train her. She still needs a few more lessons, but she’s doing a good job so far. Also, she really loves bananas. I can’t seem to get a good picture of her cause she moves around a lot whenever there’s a camera in her face, but I’ll keep trying.
Thirdly, a few months ago, I decided to give being an entrepreneur a go. I own two small businesses now and I’m very proud of them. It gets a little stressful sometimes, but I’m learning to be resilient so that’s good. I’ve also decided to start writing more short stories. A lot of things have held me back over the years, one of them being the belief that I’m simply not good enough. That nagging feeling is still there, but it’s no longer strong enough to continue to dissuade me. If you’re passionate about something, go for it. You may not be the best, but we all have to start somewhere. Starting is what counts. Maybe I’ll share some of the stories here, if I feel like they’re actually worth sharing.
Lastly, I really want to promise to be more active here, but it turns out I’m really inconsistent. Regardless, I’ll try my best. Until next time.
