Getting back on track


It’s been a couple of weeks since I last wrote my blog. I have been busy but the main reason is that I totally forgot! Yesterday I moved into Caroline and John’s house and so far so good, they have made me feel very welcome. This is to coincide with coming off my meds which I am to discuss with my psychiatrist this week. Ellie is going to be moving house soon so it is better for me to avoid the stress of all that. Last week I went to see Straight Outta Compton which was epic and this week I saw Legend with Matt who thought it was quite boring. I, on the other hand found it quite brutal! Both films are definitely worth a watch though. I have received my course materials through for my Creative Writing module which I am really excited about and have started some taster exercises already just to prepare myself for what is to come. I’m really nervous but I have to have confidence in myself. Yesterday I went to an Inner Discovery workshop at Kyra, the women’s group. I really enjoyed it and was interested to learn that the autumn equinox, which is happening tomorrow, is a great time of year to declutter your life and make changes to the way you want to live. We had to choose our values from a page of lots of words and mine were joy, love, health and freedom. Another fun activity we did was to take a magazine and cut out any words or pictures that resonate with you and then stick them to a mood board. Physically visualising what you want in life can be very effective and in fact a lot of athletes put pictures of themselves winning medals around the house in order to help them win! I’ve asked to do less hours at work now; just twenty a week. This is so I can fit in my studying but also to coincide with me reducing my meds. I have no idea whether the psychiatrist is going to be on my side or not so wish me luck!
