Constant Reassurance

It can be difficult trying to get through this life sometimes, with the constant pressures put on you by yourself and others.  You find yourself striving to move forward or trying your hardest to get things done, so you can reach those elusive goals.

Sometimes this can all get too much and your head starts to get overwhelmed, as you find yourself rushing from place to place and task to task.  You barely give yourself a chance to breathe or your mind a chance to rest, and it can be draining.

However, taking some time out with my God always manages to calm me down.  It is the best method of reassurance and relaxation, as I spend time talking to Him, meditating on His word, praising Him in song or just listening to what He has to say.

Yesterday, I decided to take a longer route to the bus stop on my way home, as I felt like a leisurely walk on my own, and I am so glad I did it.  For the first time in a little while, I was casually walking just for the sake of it, rather than pacing in a bid to get home or reach my destination.

During my walk, God came into my mind and I just started having a conversation with Him.  I felt at ease and really happy in that moment, which was exactly what I needed to settle my spirit.  That little bit of time spent with my God just made me feel that everything was going to be okay, which is why time spent with Him is so special.

I’m glad that I have my God on my side, supporting me every step of the way.  It also makes me feel good to know that He will be a constant reassurance, which is important for someone as easily stressed as me.  With Him, everything will work out fine.

Time to Myself

I really appreciate having some time to myself.  There is nothing nicer than relaxing and doing something you enjoy while enjoying your own company.

I love going for a walk in the sun and immersing myself in my music.  I like lying back on my bed and indulging in a good book.  I enjoy spending time talking to my God and listening to hear His voice.  And I like attending exhibitions, particularly fashion and costume exhibitions.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending ‘The Glamour of Italian Fashion’ exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which was a lovely experience.  I adore Italian fashion, so this was perfect for me, and it was great to learn about the history.

I fell in love with a number of the garments on display and I was in awe as I was able to look at some of the couture garments I had seen in the photos up close.  I read every note, watched (at least a part) of every video, and paid attention to every outfit.  I was in fashion heaven, especially when I laid eyes on a particular pair of Prada shoes that I had always wanted.

I like to be able to take my sweet time and immerse myself in exhibitions, so I prefer to go on my own.  But most of all, I enjoyed having some time to myself.

A Lovely Day

Although today was cold and foggy with wet dirty ground, and I had another dreaded blood test, today really was a lovely day.  Visiting the special teachers that have had an impact on my life always makes me feel better and helps to drag me out of the darkness I find myself in.

My teachers always have words of wisdom and bundles of support to give me, which I greatly appreciate.  I was able to get some great careers advice, hear some understanding words and speak to those who have been on my journey with me.

My teachers did not judge me or talk to me like I was crazy, but they were more than willing to listen to my explanations and how I was feeling.  I know that these four amazing women have my best interests at heart and more than that, I know that they believe in me.

And to top it all off, I’ve enjoyed taking a nice refreshing walk, relaxing in front of the TV with my sister and talking to my best friend is so much smarter and more profound than I’ve realised.  I really like seeing new sides of the people in my life.

Today really was a lovely day for me and it feels like it’s given me the little nudge that I needed.  I hope to have more days that I enjoy  in spite of the grim weather and I feel slightly better about moving forward.
