Stuck In A Rut!

I think everyone gets stuck in a rut every once in a while and this weekend I was certainly right in the middle of one. I managed to get the whole weekend off work and had so many plans to get stuff done but what did I end up doing - NOTHING! Don't get me wrong, it was nice to take a step back and laze around and do nothing but it has also made me feel anxious because I was really unproductive, quite down because I have been sick for the last few weeks and I think I have just let it all get on top of me a little - it was bound to happen eventually! I've been doing so well this year by helping others out, pushing myself outside my comfort zone along with working harder than ever before! Sometimes I am a little hard myself, I keep taking things on thinking I can manage them all, I try to listen and help everyone out as much as possible forgetting that I also need a little help myself and I end up getting buried underneath it all. To make matters worse I know how lucky I am, I am so blessed because in reality I am healthy, I have an amazing family, a great group of friends and I never want for anything but because sometimes I still feel a little down at times, the guilt comes creeping in! I start giving out to myself for feeling this way when I have a million and one things to be thankful for but I suppose that is the vicious circle of anxiety. Some days are great and some are terrible but it's finding a balance between the good and the bad that makes it all worth while. I have a lot of exciting plans for the next few weeks with a trip to Edinburgh next week which I am very excited about so I don't want to have this dark cloud around me. I am going to stop putting so much pressure on myself to have an "Instagram Perfect" life and just be ME! It's a new week, a new day and another chance to for a fresh start!
