There’s something in the air today. Let’s hide from Monday.
HIDE! HIDE! IMMEDIATELY! SAFETY! SAFETY! FIRST!
Everyone i’ve casually bumped into has either been stressed out, started the week of with a jolly *thumbs down* or they’ve basically just gone bonkers.
Maybe, i’m just hormonal, who knows, who cares? But I’m gonna blame the planets, just cos i can’t blame the ‘boogie’ and well just like the lergy, the *umpties* has been passed on…I’m now moderately stressed. Infact, ‘stressed’ is the wrong word… have a lot bundling and zooming through my mind, so i’m present in person, i’m nodding and smiling, but my head is away and busy. When i’m stressed or my head is away…I do this awesome ‘withdrawy’ thing. Yet, it doesn’t bother me, as once i’ve ditched my ‘pity party i’m fine and the people who are always there for you, welcome you back with open arms, laughter and a ‘glad to have you mentally back.‘ 🙂
I’m doing that thing again where I ponder what everyone else is doing, compare it to what i’m doing and instead on just concentrating on Wunna Land. Bad habit. I’m over it now though. This is why i love my blog, it’s like therapy. Once, i’ve written it out, ‘tipper tappered‘ it out of my brain, it’s almost like it disappears from my system and pours onto you. Lol
Luckily, there’s fruity gins…
So I’ve requested for one to be poured with a *snap* and a fresh lime slice to be swimming in it merrily. I only want happy lime slices, not dodgy ones.
And to be honest, I think we all just need a chill right now, a holiday, a break, a relaxing sunshine time, laid on a lounger, doing nothing but appreciating ourselves. We want to enjoy the simple things, the things that makes us smile and as our sexy little troubles, ‘melt like lemon drops.
We’ve handled 2018 better than we thought, so far. It’s been tough. So yeah, we need a treat! Well, I know I do. I live for down time. Sometimes, we forget to treat ourselves. Don’t! Its important. It makes you beam.
I have so much pending and planned and its all actually going really well. I feel really lucky and now that I have gin…I’m kinda feeling alright. The stress of Monday’s kinda dissolved away and the rest of the year should be dandy now.
I’m focused and feisty at the moment and in a mode right now, where i want to DO WELL. But i’m being patient. I’m doing it the right way, I think? This morning has been hectic..ABSOLUTE MAYHEM, but because i’m a go getter. I’m like that in general, be it work or love….But if you don’t go after what you want, you’ll NEVER have it. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be ‘NO.’ If you don’t step forward, you’ll always stay in the same place. If you do not stick up for what you believe is right and stay loyal to how you truly feel… then you’ll never ever be fulfilled.
Today, i’m learning that I can do bursts of hectic excitement in work, if it’s treated with chills, calm and happiness afterward.
TREAT YOURSELF. (Please do)
It can be anything! Just a moment of doing nothing, that drink, that cookie, going on that date, that holiday booking, that massage you never get around to having, that watch, that handbag, that top, that lip gloss, that time with a good friend, that minute away from your socials, or that time with your family or the girl or guy you adore.
Do it over and over again, until you don’t feel bad for treating yourself! 🙂
(I’m totally having a flashback of this modelling gig that my friend had for Adidas in Palm Springs, years ago. He was gay and well still is…and took me along for the trip, so I could pretend to be his girlfriend. Lol.
Whilst I was there.. God, I was 20 something at the time I think? Anyway, this other guy with a big afro, slide a note under my door, which read…‘Treat yourself, don’t cheat yourself,’ and my gay friend got pissed off, because, the afro guy was hitting on his pretend girlfriend??? LOL! I totally forgot that happened! Such a great time, because between rehearsals for the catwalk show and the actual live shows, we all just got to lay by the pool ALL day and hang out, doing whatever we wanted…Awesome life! That’s when being a model is ace, because the down time you have at work is remarkable….and not a trip to Marks & Sparks for a prawn sandwich. I mean, that wasn’t even my gig. I just went to hang out. But we all knew each other anyway.)
THIS GIN IS A TREAT!
(Except, I keep remembering all the pathetic or cringy things i’ve done in my life. They keep accidentally running them through my head constantly….I need a better eraser, gin doesn’t work for that. 🙂 )
I had so much to tell you, but I can’t remember it all now? But yes, I’m excited to film my online advert, I’m soon back on your telly, I’m getting my teeth fixed, i’ve fallen asleep instead of taking Facetime calls, i’m shooting content and again, I feel like the luckiest girl in all the land.
Thank you for following my life…
