My Own Happiness

Good Morning Lovelies,

Life has been pretty hectic of late with wedding shows here, there and everywhere, but I’ve just worked the last one for the year, so hopefully things can start to calm down.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about my own happiness and how I can appreciate what I have a little more. And as Autumn is my favourite season, I’m going to use it to do more of the things I love.

Things like crunching through Autumn leaves as I walk the dogs with my mum, and reading a good book in a cosy corner.

It’s now time to look after Tasha and be good to me. This blog may be mainly about the foods I eat and recipes I try, but you can’t live happier and healthier if you don’t have a healthy mindset too.

Looking after my mental health is now going to become more of a priority, and it should be that way all the time. But sometimes life gets in the way.

It’s time to practice a bit of mindfulness.

So today after work, I’m going for a nice swim to kickstart the week, then I’m going home, have beef casserole for dinner and am also going to do some reading in my cozy pyjamas with a hot chocolate to keep me toasty warm 🙂

Speak Soon Lovelies, and Happy Monday 🙂

Underestimating Myself

I was talking to my colleague the other day about where I felt my life was going just in general office chat and I was talking about feeling a bit down for several reasons.

Then the topic got onto how I look and my colleague said something to the effect of;

‘Tash,I don’t think you realise just how stunning you are.I bet you have turned heads and not known.’

I guess because of how big I was,I still see that person staring back at me and it’s only when I look at old photos that I realise just how much I have changed physically.

I know I’m pretty (sorry if that sounds big-headed) but not in the conventional sense.I would never say I look stunning but maybe I should start appreciating myself more.I know I talk about loving your body but it’s easy to lose site of that sometimes.You just end up going through the motions and never fully,truly appreciating what you have.

I also made a decision yesterday to finally start going after the things I want in life and not let what other people think dictate my decision.

I’m only 26 years old and I act at times like I have no life; I just go through the motions in a monotonous routine. That needs to change and I need to do more of what makes me happy.

So I am going to focus on passing my driving test (I passed my theory by the way,forgot to tell you!); that way I can do more things for myself and not have to rely on others.

If I want to go for a coffee with my mum,I can just drive there. Whereas at the minute I can’t really do anything because public transport is so bad.

I am also going to stop spending the little money I have on frivolous things and actually spend it on days out to get the most out of my month. I want to look back on a month and think, ‘Yeah I enjoyed that.’ instead of, ‘well what do I have to show for it?’ I got a bit obsessed with having stuff like makeup and clothes instead of organising days out and utilising my wage a bit better to do things with the important people in my life.

Anyway, I hope your Monday goes well today lovelies and you don’t get bogged down with work/life crap. Take each day as it comes and go after what you want.

We only get one life, so may as well live it!
