Journey on a train

Published March 25, 2018 by katee124

I travelled up to Wolverhampton this weekend to catch up with a friend. Which was lovely.

I got the train there & back as I thought it be nice to chill & not worry about getting there.

I had forgotten how bad the trains can be sometimes. Both ways I’ve been delayed. One by a fire which fair enough, you can’t do anything about! But it was delayed by 45 mins whilst being on the train & standing as there weren’t any seats.

I like to think I’m fairly fit but even I was in a bit of feet pain from standing. Why do they allow so many people on a train? It’s horrible being squished.

I also think it’s important to keep us updated so you can let your family/friends know. Especially if they’re waiting for you or picking you up from the other side.

I did make a few friends from Macclesfield which was nice. I like chatting to strangers on the train & learning their story.

Coming back home, it’s been delayed due to a speeding restriction which has delayed so far by the 10 mins which I can deal with.

What I can’t deal with is again the lack of seats & how horrifically busy the train is. I’m currently sat in the bike shed of the train on the floor listening to a baby screaming so apologies for the rant!

Stubbornness

Published March 20, 2018 by katee124

I’m feeling this quote this morning.

I see stubbornness as a good thing. For me anyway. For example, I played twister over the weekend with friends which I haven’t done in years.

I had forgotten how tiring & difficult it can be but thanks to being stubborn, I powered through it and won.

Or with my new job, stubborn to do a good job and not to give it up just yet despite the frustrations & annoyance of new colleagues.

It can also work with relationships. I like to think I’ve managed to keep my boyfriend through constantly planning our weekends, nagging him & pestering. Pushing through the not so good parts knowing there will be better days for us.

Obviously it can be bad too if you have a bad attitude & are sticking with it or refusing to back down from a fight which should of never been a fight.

But as the quote says, sometimes in life… all you can do is hold on.

Stubborn – adjective- having it showing dogged determination not to change ones attitude or position on something. Especially in spite of good reasons to do so.

Morning moaning moans

Published March 19, 2018 by katee124

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged.

Life has been difficult the last few months with boy trouble, quitting my job, finding a new one & being diagnosed with anxiety.

But, we’re at the end of the tunnel I hope, new job is going well so far. Things are looking up with the boy & through therapy, I’m dealing with the voices in my head.

I’m feeling pretty positive. It made me realise how you never know what’s going on with people. In their heads, hearts, at home or work. Always be kind.

What I’ve also realised is how much people complain…..

I had friends over at the weekend & all some of them did was just moan.

Moaning about the weather. Moaning about their work. Moaning about being on a diet. Moaning about being tired. Moaning about their partner. Moaning about being single. Etc etc.

Sometimes you need a good moan, I’m s big believer in that. But there’s a time & a place like over a bottle of wine with your bestie.

Not at a house party where people want to have fun & be happy.

Maybe I should of been brave enough to ask them to leave but no one needs the drama.

I just hope I’m not a hypocrite. Going to work on being less moany. No more morning moaning moans.

What & where?

I don’t know what I’m doing or where I’m at these days. 

I change my mind very quickly & never know which direction or choice to make. It’s scary, life is scary. You can make one decision & it can affect the rest of your life. 

This adulting life is bloody terrifying but I like to think deep down that we’re thinking & feeling the same. Some obviously deal with it or hide it better than others whereas some just completely lose it & turn into bad eggs. 

I’m not really sure what I’m trying to say. I guess, you’re not alone. Keep going, keep trying. It will be ok in the end, and if it’s not ok, then its not the end. 

Own worst enemy

Sometimes the bravest thing to do is be yourself. 

I find this hard. Even though I have a great, support network – I just feel I’m not as good as others. 

Low self esteem for ya, plus I’m naturally a negative thinker. I’m very good at focusing on the bad. 

I need to focus on the good. Because life is good, I need to relax my mind and breathe. Breathe & just chill. Why is it so hard? 

Any tips on relaxing, I’m listening. 

Trust yourself

Published May 24, 2017 by katee124

Long time no see. 

Its important to be able to trust yourself as at the end of the day, you are all you have. 

Just today alone I’ve had a few experiences where I’ve been made to feel bad about just acting as myself or feeling a certain way or even voting for a certain party in a certain election. 

My message here is, you do you. No matter what. It’s alot easier to be you than pretend other wise. 

Everyone is different, sure but we’re all our own people with our own thoughts, feelings and decisions. 

The amount of abuse I’ve seen lately about people voting for parties in this election is horrendous. 

The important thing is to vote. Vote for who you believe in or their policies. Everyone is in a different situation hence the different parties. 

Please stop the hate. Encourage to vote. Encourage to educate unbiased information. The BBC website is perfect for this. 

There’s too much hate these days, let in the light.
