You know what, I woke up today and felt like crap, and that’s fine.
It’s been a long week since I’ve been back from Africa. I haven’t stopped since stepping foot off the plane, I was rejected from the army for the third time due to my past of anorexia, I’m back at work, I’m trying to push my social media following, I’m writing this blog, I’m trying to be around for the family, I’m trying to organise upcoming trips, stressing on how to fund them and I’ve been training. I’m not saying this to complain, its been a good week. I’ve had my ups and downs like everyone else and most of the time I’ve been feeling good. But today I woke up and was anxious, tired and miserable for no apparent reason. The reason I want to bring this up is because I believe it’s important we have days or moments like this. We can’t be happy all the time, if we were how would we know we were happy? It would just be our normal state of mind. We need to be unhappy at times to appreciate happiness. It’s like when you go camping for a couple days and when you come back your bed feels amazing and a shower is heavenly like. So next time your unhappy don’t sit there and feel sorry for yourself, reflect on it for a couple minutes, embrace it, appreciate it, recognise it’ll pass and then go do something, move on. We’re all human and we need ALL our emotions.
