Good Morning World

It has been just over a month since my last post, as you can imagine I needed some time to process what had happened. I would not say I am out the other side but I have moved past the anger into acceptance and understanding that if he was ‘the one’ we would still be together and he wouldn’t have walked away. I will always believe it is his loss that he didn’t try to talk to me but accept it was his decision and he will have to live with that.

I am reading a heartbreak self help book just to keep me moving and not dwelling on what can never be and also to keep from over blaming myself for what happened. I will post some more on this later.

Now I get to look forward to the rest of the year as a blank slate and decide what I want to do, where I want to go and how I want to live my life.

Best Foot Forward

As I had posed earlier I was cutting sugar out, I eased up a little during the break up but didn’t go mad and I am now back on track for the last 7 days and I do feel good. My moods don’t swing so wildly, and I am going for a walk in the evening to start getting fit and rebuild my confidence.

So my first project has been to sort clutter from my flat, move things around, make it look different so it lessens any memories from “before”. Boy it felt good and extremely cathartic throwing stuff away and I totally believe it has helped me with moving on and coming to terms with being single again.

Art table has been cleared ready to start art journaling, painting and crafting again, I seemed to lose myself a little in this relationship now I am getting back to being me. So I plan to be very busy over the coming months sharing new projects and living a little more adventurously.

See you soon

I love sunny days with a chill in the air, beautiful day to be outside and perfect for taking photos. I have really missed walking so it was lovely to spend a few hours walking taking in nature and the weather. I am not the only one, was so lovely to see so many others out and about. A little careful shopping wool for a new scarf, and some cheap stamps which I am looking forward to using.

When I returned home, I had a lovely surprise finally my new exercise equipment had arrived.

I ordered a Bodyblade, walking 3 miles a day is good for my stamina, health and weight loss, however I am missing the toning of muscles and body. I am not a gym goer and prefer the comfort of my own company, I have weights but they don’t really do much but the tones mucked groups as you use it through vibration. I lost weight last year and I am continuing this year, I want my body to be strong, my core to be fully engaged and I am going to try this because it can be used in several ways. End of day one and I can feel my muscles being worked.

Less journaling and some canvas painting this weekend, I liked the idea of 4 small ones painted to make one whole, I am using them as the back drop for my word of the year. It has been a challenge to try something new, and it is ok for it not to be quite what you expected and each time I learn something new so nothing is lost.

More than anything I really love messing around with paint, getting my hands covered, time passes so quickly that I hardly even notice and it levels the mind. It allows me to step outside myself any be colour and texture, to write my own story or emotions through imagery and my only sadness is that I can’t do this all day, every day.

Well it is late Sunday night and this is a big week at work for me so off to bed.

Wishing you creativity in your own story.

Finally we are here, I struggle with the end of the year I just want it over with and yay we are in 2014. I don’t celebrate New Years eve, mostly because I have never really had a drama free night, it always ends up someone upset of some sort so I normally spend it watching movies and such.

Last night I made my first journal, it was really hard work but very rewarding.

I got to choose the paper which means I get the journal I wanted, now to decorating the cover.

This is just the start, next to begin a journal page shame it is work tomorrow ah well will just have to wait until tomorrow night. Life begins again and so does my avid journaling, I have really missed it and I am also really looking forward to resuming my diet and fitness regime.

I have ordered some fitness equipment once it arrives I will let you know what it is, bit different from the norm. I can’t wait to start walking home again and to get that feeling of getting fit, body shape changing and feeling better. This is my year for focusing on me, and the word I have chosen for 2014 is INVITE, sums up what I want from this year.

So I wish you lots of amazing adventures for 2014, let’s make it a wonderful year.
