Wonderful Wednesday #23 | 2017
Hello my lovely friends! How are you doing today? Let me know in the comments below so I don't feel quite so much like I'm talking to myself! It's Wednesday and I am feeling the wonderful vibes, my what a week it's been! I took quite a bit of time off social media and the internet in general over the past week and it's been lovely. I find it so easy to get caught up in the online world. Comparing myself to others, wishing I was at a certain point with my life or just stuck in the instagram stories vortex. I forget I have an actual offline life to live aswell. Don't get me wrong, I love my online friends, the amazing community feeling on instagram and the beautiful people I get to interact with on a daily basis. However, there's also a lot to be said about real human contact, laughing with others until your tummy hurts and breathing in the fresh air. Let's take a look at the wonderful this week:
.: Recognising the need for rest. I worked out a lot last week, teamed with the heat and accientally eating refined white sugar, which made me really sick, I felt pretty under the weather. I caught my self talk complaining that I was being lazy and should really do a workout and gave it a good old talk back. The voice in our head will continue to be negative, mean and patronising unless we take a stand against it. We often say the same things over and over again on repeat without realising. Don't be mean to yourself and don't let that voice in your head say anything you wouldn't happily say to a friend!
.: Book time. I've been doing a little reading of CTRL ALT DELETE by Emma Gannon this week. It has had me giggling and passing the book to Fraser so often. It's a definite page turner and I'd reccomend it to anyone who used the internet through their teenage years and is now in their late twenties/early thirties. If you remember MSN Messenger, this is for you!
.: Fun in the sun. On Friday we had a BBQ with some friends and it was so much fun. We played innuendo bingo which had everyone belly laughing and spluttering water. You can see how it went in this vlog:
