The truth is...

I haven't been in the mood to blog or even look at blogger in general. It's not because I don't want to. It's just with everything that's been happening lately blogging has been knocked off my priority list.

I do want to update some things on here though for you guys.

1) I started CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)

Last Tuesday was my first session. I'm in a group of about 12 people who are all 'in the same boat' as me. We all have different stories to tell I am sure but they seem like friendly people. I was feeling very nervous! I have never had therapy before but the tutors are so lovely and welcoming. We have homework that's set each week and I came away from the first session feeling like it was doable. CBT is a class that helps to challenge and change the way you think, feel and behave. I think and feel a lot of negativity in my life and this needs to change. I am also doing an on-line CBT course as well and plan to have some counselling afterwards. It's all about moving forward but instead of my usual leaps. I'm learning to take tiny steps.

2) Three weeks until the wedding.

My sister gets married in THREE WEEKS! I fly out to Cyprus with my friend on the 9th October. I am looking forward to getting away for a bit of TLC and sunshine.



3) I've booked a holiday.

Speaking of holidays I have booked a getaway for next year. I have felt very panicky and withdrawn the last couple of weeks and I wanted something to give me a boost. You know I love my holidays! My friend and I are going to New York (I still need to do Empire State), Washington D.C and Niagara Falls! I'm really looking forward to next May. It gives me something to get myself better for.

4) Bought myself a gift.

When I was with Simon he said he would convert me to a Mac and he succeeded! I bought myself a Macbook air last week and it comes on the 26th!

5) Running my first charity event.

I am hosting a Macmillan coffee morning at my work this Friday. My colleagues are bringing in cakes and I am going to sell them off to raise money for cancer. I'm hoping for a good turn out! If anyone is in the Runnymede area please pop in for a cupcake!

I'm hoping to be on more of a blogging platform soon but in the mean time I apologise for absence and lack of comments on your blogs.

Good to hear from you Becca.

You're very brave to go along to group therapy. Well done! It shows you're fighting.

Your holiday sounds very exciting.

Can't believe your sister's wedding is finally arriving. I feel as though you've been waiting FOREVER!
