I think it's fair to say that I have been away for much too long. To symbolise this, I'm going to give a short synopsis of the reasons for this, and why it is relevant to all of you.
Exams, friends, family, lack of sleep, lack of time, lack of inspiration and lack of organisation.
Now that everything has calmed down somewhat, I feel like my life is kind of disorganised, and anyone who knows me will know that that is a place I hate to be in. My head feels like it's a mess and that has quite a big impact on my life: my room is horrendous, my school work goes down hill and I become even more anti-social than I already am. Thus the reason for writing this. If you feel the same as me, why not join me on my journey to:
Get my life back!
Of course, this implies that my life was lost to begin with, but this is not the case at all. I am over exaggerating massively in that my life is still quite great even though I feel like it's not and that I am super fortunate with everything that I have. However, I feel like that with a few changes, it could be at its healthiest.
Change your outlook
I am a firm believer in this theory: if your environment is untidy, so is your head. I HATE tidying my bedroom, but not quite as much as I hate the feeling of it messy. So tidy your room. If not, is there anything that you could change about your environment? Maybe move a few things around, change your duvet cover or even just hoover; I'm not suggesting a complete spring clean because that takes time that only few people have, but just surround yourself with things that make you happy!
Give something upLent is approaching, so this might be the perfect opportunity to start to think about this. If you know you do something that is not good for you, give it up! It could be something as simple and cliché as chocolate or you could give up Saturday morning lie ins to go to the gym! But go easy and make sure it's making you feel good and don't punish yourself.
Spend quality time with people who love youIf people love you, they want the best for you and you can be yourself around them. Spending time with these people can really help you recharge your batteries, relax and have a good time! And it's not about the amount of time you spend with them - you could see your friends and family all day every day - but the quality of the time you're spending. Talk to them, play games, have fun!

It's important to have time for yourself when you're not on your laptop or waiting for someone to call you back. Just turn everything off and do something else. Get some fresh air! Read a book! Have a long hot bath - whatever relaxes you.
Spend quality time with yourself
Resolutions?Nope, it doesn't have to be New Year for these! Think of a few things, maybe 5, that you're going to do differently from now on and really try to stick to them. You'll have a better sense of discipline and you'll feel like YOU are the one controlling your life, not stress or work or school. For me? Write a blogpost every Sunday, go to bed earlier, drink more water, play more piano and don't worry.
Have fun!You're never going to have this day again and if you waste it stressing out about something you can't change, you're going to miss out. If you CAN change what you're worrying about, then change it! If you can't, oh well. It's out of your control then so what? We can't have everything our way. Just live life to the full and go with the flow (so cheesy.)
I will keep you posted on how this little adventure is going for me and let me know in the comments if this was at all beneficial! Thank you so much for those of you who have stuck with me while I've been busy - I love y'all ;)
Have an amazing week you lot!
