What have you done today to make you feel proud? 💕

Hiya fellow boardies :) 

As the title suggestions,  this is a place simply for recognising achievements, every step counts no matter how little,  if you got out of bed or showered you're still winning! 

So drop by whenever you feel like mentioning it,  let's feel good about ourselves!  💗

Today I've honestly managed quite well with anxiety,  and I'm happily tucked into bed despite not doing one of my rituals :)

Much love 💕

    I signed the whole of a thousand years by Christiana Perri.
    I'm sick of covering up. I'm tired of feeling so broken.  I'm tired of falling in love. Sometimes I'm shy and I'm anxious. Sometimes I'm down on my knees. So I won't wear makeup on Thursday. Cause who I am is enough. And there are many things that I could change so slightly. But why would I succumb to something so unlike me? I was always taught to just be myself. Don't change for anyone.

  • For the first time since my heart op, I managed 2 hours practicing on my saxophone! It felt like the old days, and I felt really good afterwards though tired.

    And then after a nice cuppa tea, Peggy and I made a batch of flapjacks made with demerara sugar, golden syrup and unsalted butter. Eating one now. :p

    I got a healthy amount of sleep, which is very rare for a Tuesday! Small wins. :)
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.

    I told my student support officer everything about the bullying (even if Childline had to break confidentiality so my sso would care)

    So glad for you all and lots of love 💕 super well done and remember that all achievements are great no matter how little. 

    I'm particularly proud that I'm just getting by and that's good enough 💕 
    I've come back from a bad time and I'm just feeling so happy,  got the 22nd to look forward to and just feeling like a ray of positivity :) thanks to my partner for the most part and the ability to just accept that "now isn't my time,  I'm not feeling it,  and that's okay" 

    Keep positive lovelies xo

    I did my washing this morning. I mean i know that is pretty basic and maybe not really something to be proud of, but i let it pile up so much all the time and say to myself “will do it tomorrow”
    and hopefuly i can be proud of going to work today- if i get there lol

    yesterday i plucked up the courage to ask my teacher more than once to explain the assignment to me 
    “ I believe that you have the power to achieve whatever you put your mind too, You are living a life’s most people won’t  ever understand but that’s what will Be the root of all your determination and success. You have a soul full of love and kindness and I just know that despite all the hardship, a life’s of happiness awaits you and I’m very proud of you, just keep holding on”

    Trying my best to get more sociable and someone was sending me “not heard from you for ages, are you okay” and i just replied back with honesty saying i am distant but so lonely. And she said she has her own house now ( she has a kid aswell) and that i could go anytime if i wanna escape and thought that was nice. And totally proud of myself for even replying to someone

    Finaly completly finished painting my room. (It was a lightish blue colour before). Like I left it a few days because like the corners annoy me and didn’t look that much to do. But fml it was still a lot to do and many layers. 

    But I love it. It feels so freash and clean. And the week coming I’m getting new curtains and decorating it more to look less plain 😊
