Weeks like these….

Those weeks….

Do you ever have weeks when you feel like all you want to do is grab a bottle of wine and forget about the world?

Of course you do, I do this week, and if it hadn’t been for May being such an eventful month, I probably would have done by now.

Its easy to feel down if you have lots going on in your mind, or if you are feeling totally shit about yourself. Trust me, I know how you feel. People think because of the job that I do that I don’t feel that way, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

The hardest part about feeling like that, is doing something about it, taking that step to sorting out whatever it is thats making you feel that way, making some sort of change.

How I feel this week is nothing compared to how I felt after I had my son. I hated my body, I hated being naked, I refused to go swimming, I wanted the light off to get undressed. I felt unhappy in my own skin. I know how it feels to feel that way and its hard to make it go away.

Having said that, it does depend on which is harder, feeling that way or putting in the hard work. Sucking up those feelings and looking forward. None of us are perfect, I know I certainly am not, but I do try to stay focused, even when I feel like I can’t be bothered.
