The Come Down



Okay, here's the deal. Last weekend I had the best weekend ever. I was so happy and content with life and didn't have a single fear or worry. I was #livingmybest life and somehow managed to get pretty much all of my friends in the same place at the same time to dance and drink the night away to some absolute bangers.

However, we all know that what goes up must come down.

Now my birthday's out the way I'm literally like, "What do I do now? What can I look forward to now? OMFG I'm so sad about everything - HALP"

Okay, queue the dramatic music, but, don't you hate that? When you've had something planned for ages, then it somehow goes to plan, you have the best time, but then it's over and you're like, oh, what do I do now?

That's how I feel.

Like, everything is fine and dandy but I wish I could zip back to last weekend and live it all again. Never fear, however, as I've spent this weekend taking part in a little retail therapy and treating myself to some delicious food. Mcdonald's on Friday, takeaway yesterday... Don't judge me.

Anyway, enough about me, more about who's been inspiring me and motivating me this week. If you read my blog earlier in the week you'll know I took a hot minute away from the blogosphere and boy oh boy, have I come back to some uh-maz-ing content. Vlogs, podcasts, #relatable posts. It's been a joy to absorb myself in all this week (and has muted the blow of that birthday comedown). Let's get stuck in and share the love SHALL WE?

Motivation

I was feeling in a bit of a funk at the beginning of the week, but I caught up on Zoella's latest vlogs (I hadn't watched anything since about mid-December). I was pleasantly surprised to see Zoe talking about her new approach to vlogging this year. She will be and already has taken her camera into meetings she has to record them all. Why do I love this? Because it gives myself and others a better understanding of what's happening behind the scenes. Following all that advent calendar drama last autumn, I think this is a good move forward for Zoe, and I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Anxiety

Anyone who wants to question just what exactly is going on inside my head when I say I've got anxiety needs to read this post.  Alys is actually writing a whole series in this style and it hits the nail on the head. It's the perfect way to give someone an insight as to how some quite 'normal' things can actually be incredibly daunting and scary.

Friendships

This is honestly like my favourite subject at the moment. Friendships in adulthood are hard and hearing that others feel the same make me feel so much better. This week Olivia and Charlotte launched The Fringe Of It Podcast and well, I need to a take a minute. It was like listening to two besties chat to you about things which I think we've all thought before but perhaps haven't discussed enough, if at all. The part which resonated with me most was where the girls spoke about when you have a friendship breakup, but for no real reason. You just sort of stop talking and seeing each other. I can relate - it's sad, but promising to know that we all go through it.

That's all for this week my chums!
