So, the little babe that is Chole, tagged me in the self-love tag. And I thought it was about time I stopped putting myself down and remember that even though some days I walk around with my leggings on backwards, I’m alright.
Without blowing my own trumpet, let’s get on with the Self Love Tag.
What’s Getting you down at the moment?
Right at this very moment my bonkers hormones are getting me down. As a whole, my anxiety has really been amplified recently. I have no idea why or if there is a specific reason for it but sometimes I hate the thought of going out of the house because of it.
What makes you happy?
I am such a home bunny, so being at home. Being all snoodled up in my dressing gown and slippers really does make me so damn happy it’s unreal. Throw in a musical sound track and I am in my own little pod of happiness.
I should also mention my smelly little dog in this, too. He’s so happy all the time and it’s so lovely to be around.
Three Guilty pleasures.
Craig David- I know all the words to fill me in and I don’t intend on stopping blasting that bad boy out on the motor way!
Peppermint Tea- not necessarily a guilty pleasure, but drinking tones of it a day definitely makes me feel guilty!
Bridge to Terabithica- YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT. I love it. I sob every time.
What is something about yourself you’d like to improve on?
I’d love to improve on my confidence. In fact that’s one of the reason’s I haven’t met some of the girls I’m desperate too! I can’t help thinking this podgey blogger (yes, that’s what I shall call myself from now on), will be a little bit of a let-down.
When was the last time you belly laughed?
I have no idea how long ago it was, but it was a while- bit sad really. I laughed so hard at some little sarcastic thing my mum did. We are so similar, so when it comes to sarcasm- we know what’s going to happen before it does.
What is your biggest insecurity and fear?
Ooo, this is delving a little deep, isn’t it? Erm, I’d have to say that I will end up alone. I think because I’m an only child it makes me really aware that I could end up that way. At least I will always have wine.
Name a song that always cheers you up when you’re down
Craig David- Fill me in. Obvs.
Name 3 things you like about yourself
I like my eyes- their almost black and I can’t hide my emotions behind them (if that makes sense).
I don’t think I’m a bad person. I may have been in the past but you definitely learn to be yourself as you grow older. And as I stand right now, I’m not horrible.
I wear my heart on my sleeve. A hindrance and one of my favourite things about myself. When I go through something it’s so obvious. I just can’t hide it. With that everyone knows where they stand with me. They know why I don’t answer their texts, they know why I give them that extra cuddle; I am transparent.
What is an achievement that has made you proud of yourself this year?
GETTING THROUGH THIS DAMN YEAR. Honestly this year has been the most draining year I have ever had in my life- if I make it to the end with my sanity in tack then I’ll be lucky.
Tell us your happiest memory
A few weeks before my grandad passed away we went to a family wedding. He was so contented- or at least he looked it. There’s been so many memories that make me happy but that’s the one I revert back too.
I’m pretty sure that everyone I would tag has already completed the self-love Tag, so if you reading this post hasn’t then, I nominate you too. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves how happy our lives can be.
