Its the 12th of October which means it is also the twelfth day of Blogtober! Today I am answering my questions based on 11th October.
What made me feel enthusiastic today?
I had an e-mail in work today about a design competition that is being run which really made me feel enthusiastic as it is something that I would love to partake in. I love designing and have already got a few ideas of what I could do for my entry.
What drained me of energy?
My mental health hasn’t been particularly good for the past few days but today it felt pretty bad and I spent a lot of time battling negative thoughts, you know the kind – the ones that tell you that you aren’t pretty enough, clever enough, popular and all the rest. I know that on a normal day, most people get these thoughts and can brush them off but, today was just a never-ending battle and it was just so tiring.
What did I learn about myself today?
I learned that despite the battles inside my head there are moments of calm and sometimes, to get through the tough days I have to hold on to those moments of calm and breathe through the bad stuff. That, and sleep really can be a cure at times.
