Yesterday was a really good day. Nothing too crazy or fancy, however it was the first day in about two months that I woke up without feeling anxious or down. Although I was feeling so fluey, I still felt great, free and full of energy. I definitely think that this new energy and good vibes is from a nice weekend spent with Mark and family.
The last few weeks I have been feeling extremely anxious, and to be honest the fact that I haven't been able to keep on top of the house work was actually making my anxiety worse. It sounds so stupid I know, but when I feel anxious, all it takes is the smallest thing to really annoy me and even get under my skin. When I am anxious, mess and chaos really bothers me, so much so that one night last week I got up in the middle of the night and tried to clean the bedroom quietly so that I didn't wake Mark up. That's how bad it can get. Which, if my mam and dad are reading this they will double up with laughter because my bedroom in theirs was ALWAYS like a bomb had hit it. However, since I moved out this is something that really bothers me. So yesterday morning I had nothing on so I was able to tidy up and (this is going to sound so stupid) it really made me feel great! How sad is that?!?
In the afternoon, I was minding my cousins which was such fun. We made Valentines day cards and just had pure fun. Being around my younger cousins always reminds me to live in the moment. They aren't going to be this little forever, and just seeing how little they have to worry about and how they change their mind every five minutes as to what they want to play with, it really helps put everything into perspective. I absolutely loved playing with them yesterday and I really felt grateful that I was able to spend time with them and also for how close I am with them. Family is what truly matters!
After dinner we went to Mark's parent's house and had a nice evening, chatting about the wedding and the busy year ahead. As soon as we got home, all I wanted to do was blog, which made me so happy. It was the first time in months when I actually felt that I wanted to blog and that I didn't feel like I had to blog. After I blogged I used my pillow spray and had another great night's sleep!

That was my Monday! How was yours? Remember, just because nothing too crazy happened during your day does not mean that it wasn't an important or a good day. If you can find happiness in every day life, it means you are one step closer to feeling content with your life and with yourself.
In this new section, I will try to update you all every day as to how the day before was, how I was feeling, what I did that made me feel good, what made me feel down/ anxious etc..
