An Update and An Apology

I am writing this blog to catch up my faithful readers with the four months that I failed to post for. I’m not normally so rubbish when it comes to posting, and over the summer I was blogging several times a week. Mostly because I am so passionate about writing that to not do it would be almost criminal. Things really have changed in my life in this time. I finished working at Edge Hill University, I started working at Boots in the Trafford Centre (and left) and I even took the plunge into full time self employment. It’s really not easy though as clients disappear almost as fast as they arrive, but it’s all about keeping up with it, and as I get settled into this new routine I am hoping to get crafty and put the etsy shop name I’m hogging to some actual use. Never mind the additional change that is moving into a flat on my own! So much independence!

One thing that I would like to say though, is that m anxiety has possibly been the main reason for my lack of posting. Life has actually been really good. Two days after my last post here I joined slimming world, in that time I have lost 2st2lbs. I have a lot more to go, (about 6st) but I won’t bore you guys with that, I’m thinking of blogging my way slim on a new url. In spite of all the positivity in my life, a lot of it is really scary too. And on top of all the changes that I struggle with, anxiety isn’t really specific. It doesn’t discriminate. And there isn’t much of a difference between excitement and anxiety as a feeling physically for me, which can be quite confusing.

I’m hoping to carve aside some time to write a proper post about anxiety – I haven’t really mentioned it before, but I want to find a way to reach out to all the people, especially students, that feel like they are at the end of their tether. You may not achieve the highest heights of success (though you are in charge of however that is measured) but you can still achieve. I’ll save all that for later though as it’s not really something I can throw away in passing. But I’m back! I’m going to attempt to do the Daily Posts as best as I can too. Love to you all!
