Didn’t April rush by quickly? I feel like the Easter long weekend was just last week. But no, that was in fact, around the end of March and the first day of April. The month of April has been an exciting one for me despite some of the stress I’ve experienced.
During the first weekend of the month, I attended the inspirational All about Women festival at the Opera House. I still have several posts in my drafts that were inspired by the same. It was also this month that I attended another Blogger meetup and met up with some lovely bloggers. However, at the same time, I had some down days and also cried at work which was a bit embarrassing. Funnily enough, the crying at work has changed the relationship between my colleague and me to a better one. I share a lot more personal stuff with him and vice versa. April was also the month I almost had a heart attack as I thought I broke my blog! And then, on Anzac Day, I had an amazing experience where a complete stranger helped change my flat tyre. The end of the month saw me embark on a spontaneous day trip to the Blue Mountains and made me wonder why the hell I hadn’t been there in almost 8 years!
April was also the month filled with a few dates with the English Guy. And as enjoyable as it has been, my brain can sometimes make me anxious about things that don’t even exist. But I’m learning slowly and steadily to just live in the moment and to try and not over-analyse and over-think things. While that is easier said than done, I realise that being a psychologist, I have the tools to do all of this. To be able to address my anxiety using evidence-based strategies. And that’s exactly what I plan on doing henceforth. Thereby being able to live in the moment. And savour it for what it’s worth.
So here’s hoping the month of May can see me being less anxious.
How was April for you?
Until next time,
