Considering it’s Christmas, and you all don’t have enough posts to judge me on yet, I figured I’d try 12 days of blogging. This will be my attempt to turn the 12 Days of Christmas into 12 days where I consistently post blog entries. Let’s see how it goes…
First Post: Christmas Cheer
Today is Christmas Day, and anyone who knows me knows what a fanatic I am. It’s always been my favourite time of year. I love the food, the giving, the atmosphere, you name it! Anything Christmas related is my cup of tea.
However, this year, when it struck 12am, I was not in my usual giddy state. Instead, I was in the midst of a breakdown. The repressed stress of my upcoming exams and deadlines finally got to me. University is great and I love it so far. But, I’d be lying if I said there weren’t times that I feel way over my head. This can lead me to feel incredibly down.
The way that I chose to look at it, was to remember that happiness, despite being a mood, is also a choice. Yes, I have deadlines in January. Yes, I have exams coming up. I have reason to be stressed, but it’s Christmas! I can be happy today. In fact, I can be happy most days. I just need to focus on the positives.
For example, I’ve come home for Christmas and I’m spending it with parents and a sister who love me. We’ve got an amazing dinner on the way and my parents spoilt us rotten as per usual. Sometimes, when life feels like it’s heading in a downwards direction, you have to give yourself a reason to bring it back up.
Hope you guys are all having an amazing day
Lots of love,
