MINDFULNESS⠀

When you are feeling trouble, try to maintain mindfulness. Focus the mind. When your mind is not happy, your mind is in trouble. You should concentrate by maintaining meditation. Breath in and out through your nose, concentrate on breathing and thinking of only that.⠀

Your mind is the master of your body.
Your mind is the master of action.
Your mind is the master of life.⠀

Learn to control your mind through mindfulness.

#SelfCareIsNotSelfish



It's Self-Care Sunday. What are you doing to make this Sunday as relaxing and joyful as possible?


“Let you mind and heart rest for a while. You will catch up, the world will not stop spinning for you, but you will catch up. Take a rest.” - Cynthia Go

A trip away to the south of France for some R&R. No therapies of any sort, no yoga, no meditation just being in the moment. I am completely off my meds now and it has been a battle to get through every day. I am trying to sit and just be. Learning to distract myself when my thoughts become too much, it’s challenging but I’m getting here. Trying to remember that thoughts become things so to think of the good ones, that to me is most challenging. And I’m trying to remember (something that I learnt in meditation) that pain is a delusion, these damn mosquito bites are NOT itchy!!

I have just finished reading this book #EverythingIKnowAboutLove. I didn’t think it would be a book for me but a friend recommended it and she was right, I loved it. I couldn’t recommend it more highly to woman, especially in their twenties. I have gone through so many similar things, parts of it truly felt like I could have written it myself. Thank you @dollyalderton for sharing your inspirational story, it’s comforting to know I’m not alone.

This day one year ago my life changed. The man I love walked away. Not because he didn't love me anymore but because he got scared that things were moving to quickly, he assumed things about us that weren’t true, and he ran. He runs every two years, moving country or county and will continue to run until he faces himself. I believed him when he said he had stopped running, that he had found a home in me.⠀
I became collateral damage.⠀

I suffered a server break down after Hugo broke up with me. My life torn apart. My future taken away. My dreams destroyed. I watched my whole world fall apart and all I could do was stare blankly.⠀

I still remember so clearly the picture I posted on Instagram in the morning before Hugo broke up with me; the picture read, "Today is a good day". About a month before this day I had noticed a peacefulness that came over me, I had found the right person for me and I just knew that whatever happened Hugo was the person that I was going to be with.⠀

Hugo, you gave me the best gift. You left. You left and didn’t come back no matter how much I cried and still cry. No matter how much you cried. No matter how many times I got in the car only to turn around before getting to your house. No matter how many times I screamed that you were killing me. No matter how many times I threatened you were making a mistake. No matter how many times you thought so too. No matter how much I hated seeing you move on with her. No matter how many unsaid words floated between us in email drafts and almost phone calls...⠀


This has become too long for insta so if you're interested in reading the rest I've turned it into blog post, link in bio ⬆️.⠀

MINDFULNESS⠀

Most people can relate to depression somewhere on its vast scale. A low mood can bring back memories and thoughts from the past, and make us worry about the future. Mindfulness helps prevent these negative thoughts escalating and teaches us to focus on the present moment, rather than get caught in a tangle of reliving the past or pre-living the future. A course in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy can significantly help people with clinically diagnosed depression.⠀

Tag a friend who needs to start doing some mindfulness.⠀

Have you walked⠀
through a forest⠀
at night⠀
and felt the moon⠀
rise upon your skin⠀
have you sunk your toes⠀
into the wet sand⠀
and let them get kissed by the sea⠀
have you laid with the sun⠀
while she gave you a life⠀
from within⠀
have you laughed with the falling stars⠀
and danced around a fire⠀
while they landed at your feet⠀
have you loved⠀
until the earth's crust⠀
felt too fragile⠀
to catch your fall⠀
if you have my love⠀
then you have done it all.⠀

My Surprise Birthday Dinner. A big thank you to all those who came and made it such a special evening for me.
An even bigger thank you to @annahumphreyscooking for the most amazing chocolate, salted caramel and popcorn birthday cake. The look on my brothers face shows just how yummy it truly was! I may have had some of the leftovers for breakfast...

A year ago everything was so different. Now I look back and realise a year can do a lot to a person.
