Things could be a lot better right now. Life has felt really hectic and stressful these past two weeks. Add that to my other bad week and perhaps it’s no surprise I went and got myself sick. I guess it’s possible to get worried sick after all. At least I haven’t cried again (yet). I’ve been coughing so much these past few days, my chest hurts and breathing doesn’t come easy. I want to take a sick day tomorrow, but I’ve taken so much time off lately I’d feel bad if I did. I suppose I’ll wait and see how I feel tomorrow morning.
Honestly, it feels like it’s been a hellish few weeks. I’m tired and unwell, and could do with a week’s worth of sleep. But I know I don’t have much to complain about because I’m in a better situation than most people. I think about how hard The Parents have worked, and still work, without complaint and that’s enough to put things into perspective. Life can be difficult, but it goes on. I guess you just gotta deal with it and make the best of it.
In other news, I finished the 30-day minimalism challenge as part of my journey to minimalism. I quite enjoyed it, although it was difficult to do at times given what’s been happening these past few weeks. I can’t say it’s made a huge difference to my life since I don’t usually watch television and am not constantly on social media. I think what I need to do is figure out how to incorporate my priorities into day-to-day life. I’m also thinking of re-visiting some of the tasks — such as cleaning out a junk drawer and staying offline for a day — as I found them really helpful.
I’m still working on de-cluttering Hello HQ (as usual) and am thinking of what to do with the upstairs living area. I have so many ideas floating in my mind that I’ve been collecting online and from Instagram. I’m really trying to save money and it was kind of getting me down seeing all these wonderful things I couldn’t buy. However, I thought about all the fun I could have treasure hunting in second-hand shops or foraging and I’m in a better state of mind. I guess it’s about reframing the situation. Although, I think it’s finally time I bought a new sofa.
Also, I found myself running to Super Boy a lot in these past few weeks. He’s been so solid, giving me guidance and reassurance when I was freaking out. It’s what I’ve needed during these anxious times, and I get the feeling he would be able to continue supporting me in the long-term. He’s been so kind and patient, I just want to smother him in kisses. Oh, I think I’m falling in love with Super Boy. I’m just not sure how we’d get on with our personalities. Plus, spending time together is limited due to his other commitments. But he says he wants to spend more time with me and I want to spend more time with him. So we just need to find something to do.
I guess on that note I’d better stop rambling here and look for fun things to do around town. That, or go to sleep.
