This is my first post this year and I want it to be one of those posts where I start as I mean to go on. However, as I type this I feel a bitter taste in my mouth as it has become quite evident that I havent’ quite forgiven the actions of another who disrupted my health and sanity last year. Don’t get me wrong, I’m getting much better; and having time to reflect and take all I can from the situation has in many ways humbled me as a woman and made me realise what’s more important in life.
Yet, I can’t feel slightly hard done by, particularly when the physical pain and discomfort has been setting in. Then I wonder if there really is a God when the person who has left me in this state is in some ways going from strength to strength. You undoubtedly live and learn yet I feel in my case; it’s been a hard lesson to learn when I am the only one actually feeling the repercussions.
I was going to write a post on resolutions for the New Year but to be honest, my biggest resolution is to be positive and get myself in a position where I’m back to my best. My main focus is ME and MY Happiness and as self centred as that may sound, I have found that I have spent too long helping those who undoubtedly can and need to help themselves. We’ve all been there.
The truth is, when things get bad and you’re facing difficulties; just keep moving forwards, the challenges will undoubtedly keep presenting themselves but you are a resilient force; made to withstand everything thrown at you. That’s in fact my mantra for 2016.
This shirt is simply EVERYTHING and was purchased from H&M for a very affordable £12.00. My black jeans, slit at the knees are £11.99 from Ebay and my all black bomber jacket is from Topshop and cost me £55.00. I can’t express how much I love this shirt and if like me you go kind of crazy, this shirt is still available online in stores.
