Get off my cloud...

The view from Cloud 23

Does it ever feel like everyone in the world but you is in a bad mood?

That's exactly how I feel at the moment. Parents, friends, work colleagues. I feel like I'm constantly fighting against a tide of negativity, resentment and anger. And, to be honest, it's starting to really wear me down. I freely admit that I used to be a fairly negative person. I was bitter, often angry and not a very nice person to be around. So maybe it'd hypocritical of me now to wish people weren't like that. But I do. Because for the last six months or so I've had a completely changed outlook on life. I can honestly say that I'm truly thankful for every day. No matter how bad a day I have, I always find something good in it. I always find something to make me smile, no matter how small.

I'm trying my best to stay happy and upbeat at the moment but, sometimes, I just feel so frustrated. I feel like I've made so much progress and changed so much in such a short space of time. And I just want to be believed in.

Anyway, enough of that. Everything will be ok. And when I say that these days I believe it with every ounce of my being. I'm all about the positivity these days.

I'm currently finding a lot of joy in things. My favourite things this week are:
  • Walkers Fish & Chip crisps. Nom
  • The ache in my legs when I've just been to the gym
  • Cocktails at Cloud 23 with some of my very best friends
  • Days With My Father. Heartbreaking but absolutely lovely
  • Planning the New York holiday of dreams
  • My new GHD hair straighteners. Why didn't I take the plunge sooner? They are beyond incredible
  • Laughing. But, then again, laughing is ALWAYS my favourite thing to do

What are your favourite things?
