New Year, New Me. Part 1

This is going to be a completely different post than I normally do. But I feel like I need to write it, not only for myself but for others to understand. I also have more than one part to this series, so I hope you enjoy it.

The end of last year was actually one of the lowest moments of my life. My heart was broken in half and I felt like I had nothing left. I sat most mornings on the bus to work staring out the window, tears falling down my face, and honestly not knowing what to do with myself. I didn’t sleep, eat or do anything I enjoyed.

I felt whenever I messaged close friends and family that I was bothering them, and that I was a hinderance as I was so miserable but needed the company.

Then something happened, that I was not expecting.

I had this weird moment of self acceptance, self love and felt that maybe this mopeing around was just going to get me nowhere. Instead I put my pain into my art (makeup) and it turned into one of the most proudest pieces I have ever created. Not only that but Nyx Professional Makeup reposted me on their instagram. It made me realise that I was on the right path. Not only that, but I randomly downloaded the app Tinder, which if you know me; the thought of it makes me cringe.

So I downloaded it and started swiping.

I have a certain type when it comes to men,

The list is as follows:

  1. beard
  2. tattoos
  3. broad shoulders
  4. Basically a viking

So I came across a guy called Georg, who was from Norway; he ticked all of the above.

We have been talking ever since and as I write this, I am in the lobby of his apartment.

Morale of the story is I honestly believe that things happen for a reason.

I was meant to get my heart broken,

I was meant to be on my own to realise my own worth,

I was meant to hit rock bottom, so that I could grow into the person I always wanted to be.

And now I couldn’t be happier.

Even though my mental health feels like it is now on the right path, my physical health isn’t doing as well. So in the past two weeks I have passed out 7 times, I have been having tension headaches that are so painful I cant even open my eyes. I am currently having tests done and I am waiting for the results, however speaking to the nurse; she told me it sounds like my body is basically so stressed the only way of dealing with it is shutting down. Which obviously is not great, but I am taking the right steps to get my health on the right track. Will update you guys when I have found out more.

If you take anything from this,

Just remember to look after yourself, drink plenty of water, take a brisk walk, run up them stairs, laugh at bad jokes, take photos of the sunrises, hold hands and just enjoy yourself.

Lots of love

  1. Thank you for this. My marriage seems to be falling apart and I am at my lowest I’ve ever. I feel like I can’t grasp onto him anymore to make him stay. I’ve been depressed and unable to focus.
    Reading things like this sheds some light. That even if we are to part, I will be okay. Because others have been broken hearted and rose from the rubble even stronger.
    I’m happy for you.
