You Monday not Blue Monday

Monday, 20 January 2020

Today is Blue Monday and I want to start my post by asking how are you?
You don't have to tell me, tell yourself, check in on yourself and write your answer down. 
Give yourself time to think how your mind and body truly are, it's important.

Blue Monday is supposedly the most depressing day of the year but I don't know how statistically true that is. Regardless of the science behind it, it's important to understand that every day, not just today, can be hard for people. 
Rather than having a Blue Monday have a You Monday.

Mental health is something we all deal with on a daily basis and whether you like to admit it or not, it is just as important as physical health. We dismiss it, don't want to talk about it because we feel 'silly' or 'stupid' but the more you don't talk, the more isolated you become. When you open up to people you realise you aren't the only one going through it, the world is a scary place and we're bound to think scary things. The right people will always be there to talk to, always be there caring for you and always try to help.  A problem shared is a problem halved is what I always believe and I wish more people would realise that, no matter how bad things get telling someone feels like a weight lifted off your shoulders and that's when things can change. 
Reading this you might be sat there thinking
 'You're some positive fashion blogger with 0 problems preaching at the internet'
I'd agree I'm a positive fashion blogger but my mind has dealt with a lot, I got the help I needed and things did change so that's why I'm sat here preaching to talk about you!

Recently the world has felt like a crazy place to me. 
I've seen so many people I love hurting and it's frustrated me that I can't take that hurt away from them. I tell myself everything happens for a reason, you grow from every single thing but it seems so unfair watching people go through these things.
I've realised the worst things always happen to the best people and that's life.
I have incredible people in my life, they make me stronger every single day and they make me want to smile more because I know I've got them to smile back at me.

Please make today You Monday not Blue Monday.
Ask yourself how you're doing and whatever the answer is, listen to yourself. 
Reach out to your friends and family, let them know you care and take all of the crazy stuff racing around your mind seriously because it's important. 
Do what will make your day brighter, bring a smile to your face because life is too short, it's made for living so please don't live it feeling alone!

we don't walk into the 20s, we strut .

Motto of 2020, we don't walk into the 20s, we strut .

Happy New Year to you all! 
A slightly belated one but I survived through the stress of working Christmas in retail and I'm ready to take on 2020 with a bang. A new year definitely doesn't mean a new me but I think it's brought a new attitude and I'm kinda loving it...
2019 was a weird one for me having the highest highs and the lowest lows it was all a bit crazy. It started consumed by illness, I lost my large intestine, gained an ileostomy bag and got my life back. I then had the best summer imaginable, moved down to London for University, absolutely hated it and ended the year back at home. Amongst all this was a whole load of other things but as a general round up, my 2019 was completely unexpected. 
An uncontrolled yet exciting mess...

Heading into 2020 my mind is a bit of a shambles but all I know is I want this year to be filled with everything I adore. 
To travel, to create, to laugh, to dance, to be healthy, to love, to inspire, to grow, to write, to explore, to learn, to express and what I really want to do the most is to help people.
This time a year ago I was completely helpless, I never knew how I'd get better mentally and physically. Ulcerative Colitis was my life as I slumped into 2019. Now, I've got everything I could ever dream of back and I can strut my way confidently into 2020.

Who knows what 2020 will bring but for once the unknown is pretty exciting to me, having a life plan is over-rated because when I did have one it all went tits up!
My plan is to strut my way through my days and see where I end up.
I'll let ya know what happens...

Lucy Jane
