I think it is fair to say that this year so far has been utter garbage. Tik Tok has become my primary source of entertainment, I'm a fully fledged alcoholic and I can't go out and buy a loaf of bread without fear of bringing home the plaque.
I had so many plans for this year. I was going to lose some weight (for the 9th year running). Jet off to Costa Del Sol for a fortnight. Okay so 2 plans.... but instead I am sat here with a slice of chocolate sponge and a side order of fuck it.
It all started off an anxiety riddled head fuck. Major changes have been made to our everyday lives, a lot of which we don't like and are out of our control. I guess that is the main thing we have to remember. We can't control what is happening on a global scale, we can't stop idiots abroad eating bats, we can't go house to house healing people like Jesus. But we can all do our bit. Stay at home, avoid everyone, watch Netflix and most importantly on a Thursday evening, stand on your doorway clapping like a demented seal. It may not save the world, or even your own soul, but it will make you laugh.
There are some positives to this nonsense we are living in. It has given me time to reflect on the things that matter. Turns out there's not that many. I have a roof over my head, a job that apparently is vital to the country in this crisis (it isn't), a husband who worships every fibre of my being, an amazing family whom I miss very much and my health. The last one is a bit iffy and I could do with a tune up in places, but it is there and I could be a lot worse off than I am. I am truly grateful for what I have.
Whatever happens in the coming months, it is important to maintain a positive attitude. Times are unpredictable and tough but together we can do this. Carry on living the best version of you. The good times will come again.
Thankyou to the NHS for all your amazing work. You truly are soldiers in all of this.
Thankyou for taking the time to read my articles. See you next time
