Hello my loves and welcome back to my blog. HAPPY SEPTEMBER! One of my goals this month is to write weekend highlights or weekly highlights every single week because I just love reflecting and sharing my journey here on my blog. Writing is so therepeautic and amazing, through the dark times and the light times it will always be great to look back on the blog posts one day and reminisce on my journey. That’s why no matter what this month and going forward I’m not going to save my ‘weekend highlights’ posts for those truly perfect moments, I’m just going to embarace it all.
So let’s start with Friday. I’m going to be honest, this weekend has not been the one. I’m going through some difficult stuff in my personal life (but nothing serious don’t worry), I’m just not really feeling too happy with certain scenarios / where I’m at in life and I’m desperate for a change. I’ll go into it fully as soon as I can but for now, that pretty much sums it up. Anyway because of this, I was feeling pretty low and then to add to the negativity, I had ructions at home. Family disputes / arguments… UH. Anyway, I spent most of Friday evening crying and Saturday was much of the same. A whole lotta crying, and a whole lotta anger from me.
What I’ve learnt from this though, or to demonstrate how I’ve grown, is the fact I didn’t send any texts out of anger… to people who I were mad at. Look, obviously I’m not about to air my dirty laundry online, that’s irrelevant, but there were texts I could have sent that wouldn’t have helped anybody and would only have been coming from a dark place and as much as I wanted to say my piece and get my thoughts across, thankfully my Mum helped keep me strong and I chose love instead. Knowing things needed to be acknowledged, but waiting and choosing my words from a place of love, compassion and genuine hope for the best resolve for all those concerned. That I call #growth, and I’m damn well proud of myself. Guys, we’ve got to celebrate all our accomplishments, big and small… which takes me to another celebration. Last week I achieved my most viewed month ever (so far) on my blog. Hurrah!!! We celebrate! I’m so happy about this and so excited, I’m just looking forward to seeing where my growth goes next. Thank you thank you thank you!
Today I spent my morning playing video games. Well, one in particular. Lately, for the past week, I’ve been obsessing over this game Tropico which I’ve had ever since I was a teen and I am still stuck on the same scenario. I think I need a break from it now because I’ve overdone it a lil’ bit, but I’m sure I’ll play it again soon when I want to. I just want to complete this darn challenge!
After playing Tropico for a while, I had my first ever Reiki session. Exciting!!! I was a little nervous for this to begin with and also looking forward to it, but it was totally nothing like what I was expecting. I honestly can’t explain it, at all. It was interesting but I think it’s something I’m going to have to go back to a few times to fully understand and experience the healing. This is a journey for me, not a one time thing. The prominent things I gained from it though are that I have to work on my self love so much more than I am… and my Root Chakra is really very blocked. The Root Chakra is all to do with security etc, so I can evidently see this blockage reflective in my life. I guess I gotta do a lot more work on this, practice that self love and meditate more. My Reiki Healer did say I need to do a quiet meditation every morning where I still my mind and think about nothing. Of course I will be doing this from tomorrow onwards. This is to help my overthinking tendencies… I’m excited to get on with this!
Once my Reiki session was over I went back home and played some more Tropico, then I met my Dad at the pub to watch the football. It was Arsenal v Tottenham and much to mine and my Dads dissapointment, it was a draw. We were so rooting for Arsenal but hey never mind, at least they didn’t lose right? It was an exciting game. It started off really boring, with Tottenham 2 nil up then Arsenal bounced back and played a very good game. They would have won 3-2 but their third goal was disallowed. Anyway, I’m not Chris Kamera so I’ll stop waffling on about football now. LOL.
So I’m back home now and I’m just chilling. I’m currently watching Mabel perform at Fusion Festival (on the TV obvs) and I just love her! I’m thinking about what series to watch next because guess what!!!!! We finished Stranger Things. Omg. LOVED IT. Roll on series 4! So anyway, please if you have any recommendations for what my parents and I can watch next please do let me know. I’m in the mood for another binge watch, there’s just nothing on the TV at the moment. I’m already missing Love Island.
Right, that’s me signing out anyway. Whilst I’ve not had the weekend I was expecting or all the magic my Dad’s just served me up a fresh plate of Yorkshire Puddings and we had a nice time together at the pub. We genuinely laughed and smiled together and I truly felt the love for him! Let’s see what this week brings… I hope I get some quality time with my Mum and Dad, for sure!
How has your weekend been? I hope you’ve all had a good one, and you enjoy your coming week! Happy September! Sending you all the love and light for it to be your happiest. Love you! ❤️
