Getting my life in gear

30 Apr


Right then, buddies.

I am getting my fat ass in gear. Actually, my ass isn’t that fat. It’s the rest of me that is the problem.

I felt a bit clearer this morning after cutting the chord of LinkedIn yesterday. I know I’ll start crying soon. I know I’ll still cry myself to sleep at night. But this morning, well, this morning I felt pretty awesome.

So here are some wise words from my buddy Kate, “If you can’t control meeting someone, concentrate on what you can control.”

She’s a wise one.

Today I have booked an Italian course to start in July. Booked a yoga course to start as soon as I get back from holiday. Booked a weekend in Edinburgh with my buddies. I’m booking myself a first-class ticket back into life.

If I stop for even a moment to dwell on everything I’m missing in life, I completely dissolve.

But if I look at everything I’ve done, and think about everything I have planned, I feel genuinely ants-in-my-pants excited.

Maybe it’s just the extra large coffee I had this morning.

Or the fact I’m going to sunny Florida on Saturday.

Or maybe it’s the knowledge that he can’t hurt me anymore.

F*** him.

    I am extremely jealous of all of the traveling that you do! I’m going to visit London, Rome, Italy and Ireland next year and I can’t wait, you make me want to book trips everywhere. I’m so glad you’re feeling better today, screw all the negativity thrown at you and focus on all of the positives. I just signed up for a yoga course as well!

      I love travelling. If I hadn’t been about to start my new job I would have taken off for a few months post break up. Start planning your trip! It will take your mind off things. And you better meet up with me when you’re in London! x

    Go you! Sounds like you have a lot of cool stuff going on, I’d love to learn Italian.
