I never used to be the kind of person who set reminders on my phone but I have found it to be helpful in my new found busy lifestyle.

Amidst making plans, travelling, exchanging currency, and weddings, there are simpler, less interesting tasks. I found myself entering things like ‘put card in bag’ and ‘get lunch from fridge’. These silly little tasks have increasingly become things which I will easily forget because of my hectic lifestyle.

In recent weeks I have become much more stressed from work, so much so that my body is close to giving point. My sleeping pattern has worsened yet my focus on work has increased, and my work outs have risen in frequency. My personal projects are productive and I have managed to balance a multitude of things. I am due to go to the doctors tomorrow morning so hopefully I am able to cross off any illnesses and place the blame solely on stress. A reminder to always put emphasis on taking care of yourself and your own wellbeing!

There is a great sense of relief when you come to an understanding of a hard decision you made in the past. This may be a realisation that things have turned out for the best, it may be a sense of happiness which has over taken a previous sense of sadness, or it could just be a feeling of self worth.

These are all feelings that I have felt in recent times. There is a new stillness in my heart that was not there before. There is a greater feeling of accomplishment and pride in my own actions. There is more value to taking the reins of my own happiness rather than letting someone else dictate it for me.

I am thankful for this learning curve and for the trials that enable me to grow.
