3 Things

Okay, so lately I have been feeling pretty glum. Not for any particular reason, other than the fact that I have a tendency to get like this sometimes - miserable, morbid and downright depressive. So get myself out of thing funk, I've been attempting to focus on the positives around me (which should be easy, as there really are no negatives). I have come up with 3 things that always, always make me feel that little bit better, even when I (over-dramatically) feel like my world is falling apart. 

1. Bear - I have to admit, the majority of the time, he makes me want to drown myself in acid. However, this boy is the one thing that keeps me together. I will rant and rave, about everything and nothing and he listens (in his own way) to it all, he's honest with me when I'm being ridiculous, which let's be honest, is 99.9% of the time and he's there with me when I'm crying in bed because I have to wake up at 7am the next morning. He is my all and my everything and he gives me a reason to wake up each morning and man the fuck up. I love him, I love him, I love him.

2. Bath time & Bubbles - Is this classed as two things? I don't know, but a piping hot bubble bath never fails to make me feel better. No phone, no distraction, just me, my bubbles and my book. Whether I'm sad, angry, happy - I love climbing into the bath, with my Yankee friends and a good book, lying back and relaxing. I could quite easily live in the bath, prunes and the lot. It's also my time to myself, my time to think. It's where I either tell myself I'm being stupid and that I need to grow a pair, or it's where I sit and stew and over think things. Either way, it's my place and it makes me feel better about all situations. 

3. Reading - It doesn't matter how hectic, crazy, drama-filled your life gets, isn't one of the best things in the world to be able to lose yourself in a book? In someone else's world? What could be better than taking a step back from your day and reading about Magnus Bane and Will Herondale? (Cue Mortal Instruments fan girl). Reading is one of my favourite things to do, on the bus, in the bath, on my lunch break, before bed, on the bog. Everywhere. If I'm having a bad day at work, I'll go on my break and as soon as my nose is in a book, I feel calm. If I'm pissed at someone, I'll (go make them on the Sims and then remove the pool ladders whilst they're having a midnight swim) go pick out my favourite book and read a few pages and feel calm. You can always rely on a good book to make everything seem that little less dramatic. 

So, there you have it, the 3 biggest things that never fail to make me feel better.
What are your 3 things?

  2. The bit you crossed out about the Sims made me laugh so much! This is such a lovely post! I think mine would have to be 1) James (my boyfriend) 2) A night with my best friends and 3) Bubble bath & a book xo

  3. Aha, we're very similar :') They never fail to cheer me up!

  4. Hahah, I have been known to kill people on the Sims, does that make me heartless? :P
