Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Welll technically it was Saturday and yesterday but I went on the tube and on the huge escalators at London stations which is something I’ve never done before and for lunch is a ham and coleslaw sandwich which I’ve never had before 😂
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    Today I painted my nails which is something I rarely do. I even have a couple of photos for everyone. 
    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    And I have officially been 2 weeks free of biting/picking my nails.

    I got two buses to my sisters house (normally she picks us up and never got the bus there). But enjoyed it.  Took forever and we got a bit lost when got off the stop before lol but got here eventually ahah. And had nice lil walk to it

    Today I ate jacket potato. Yum. I also woke up super duper early (aka 2:15am.)

    Yesterday I tried onion. Yuck!

    Does trying to actually sleep through the night count? Usually I wake up a lot during the night. But tonight I actually slept through the night. So from 9:40pm to 7:15am. So proud of myself. And my breathing gets so much better when I have a break from my retainer and easy breathing equals easy sleeping. Even if my orthodontist won't be too pleased but I'm sure she would understand that it sometimes affects my breathing.

    Sounds great Kasa!  
    A good friend of mine sometimes takes his retainer out at night because it can affect his sleep,  trying to sleep through the night definitely counts and I need to try that too :)

    As for me,  I actually melted my cheese on toast this morning instead of eating it hard, 

    And Saturday I tried a toasted teacake(was nice apart from the currents and raisins so I'll stick with bread 😂)

    Something new - actually planning a trip away in advance instead of just asking my manager when the soonest I can take holidays is 😂

And omggg i feel like ive tried every foundation but this one and it is sooo good. My face feels like it has stayed on today lol
