You can do anything if you put your mind to it (I promise)

The events of the last 3 or 4 months have been less than ideal for me, to say the least. I don't need to go into details (and if I did it would take me all day) but in a way I am actually grateful for the bad luck that came my way. In difficult times we find out who we really are.

I honestly thought I would struggle a lot more than I did with both situations, but I kept the wallowing and the panicking to a minimum and decided instead to dig deep and use all the energy I had to get things back on track. I have struggled since I was a teenager with my mental health - I've been medicated, had CBT, the lot - but this time around I knew how to deal without getting into a really bad place.

I feel like life is getting back to how it should be these last few weeks, which actually feels abnormal after what I've had to deal with this year, but I've come out with a stronger sense of who I am and what my strengths and best qualities are, and I've made some changes which look set to lead to even better things.

It's totally OK to feel down and to doubt yourself once in a while - it's part of being human. But don't ever let anyone tell you you're not good enough, don't ever let a situation dictate how you feel about yourself, and always believe that you have the power and the ability to achieve great things. You can do anything if you put your mind to it, I promise.



  1. Lovely post! I've had a really difficult year too and sometimes it's nice to know I'm not alone. With social media it sometimes feels like everyone's lives are perfect and I'm getting left behind, so it's good to have a reminder that you never know what's going on behind someone's online persona and that everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Thanks for sharing your words of wisdom and I'm so glad that you're finding your way through the difficult times, I wish you all the best for everything to come!

    Just discovered your blog today and you've got yourself a new follower for sure :)

    1. Thanks so much Sarah :) It's definitely hard to remember everyone struggles - especially in the blogging world which can seem a bit TOO perfect sometimes!
