Do you ever get a little overwhelmed with life? Things just begin to pile up and you don't really know where to go from there? That is me at this moment in time, a lot of very exciting things are happening at the moment so trust me when I say I am not complaining but at times I do feel like I am living a Hannah Montana lifestyle. One side of my life is so exciting, it's full of events, trips and collaborations with amazing brands but then the other side, which is my reality is full of assignments, deadlines, exams and my actual job! So many exciting things are beginning to happen but trying to maintain a healthy balance with everything is proving to be difficult, not to mind trying to find time for a social life and my friends! My life consists of lists, reminders and sticky notes plastered all over my walls and even though I am finding it a little difficult to manage it all at the moment, I also would not change it for the world.
It makes me think back to this time last year, or even two years ago and how I would not have been able to deal with it all and I didn't back them. I let everything get on top of me and bury me alive which resulted in me breaking down not once, not twice but three times before I realised it was time to get some help and I did! Even though I have tough, anxiety riddled days and the smallest things to some are the biggest things to me, I am mentally the strongest I have been in a very long time and I am so proud of myself to be able to say that! It didn't happen over night and I will have to work on it everyday for the rest of my life but it is something I will continually work on! I have began to see things in a much more positive light and as stupid as it may sound, it has really helped! Nothing actually benefits me more than being nice to others, knowing that I can make someones day with a simple smile or a chat has benefitted my own mental help immensely! All I can say now is life is better with a smile on my face!
