A friend said to me this week ‘you’ve got your glow back’. It really resonated with me. I have. I’m starting to feel more like myself again. Everything that has happened over the last 18 months has taken it’s toll. I really started to notice it back in February. And so on March 1st I started a detox, I started to think about removing all the bad habits and finding ways of finding myself. I wrote about it in this post – it’s time to make a change – if you fancy a read. It explains where I was 6 weeks ago, how I’d lost my way. And this post explains where I’m at now.
I’m starting to feel more like myself…
I can’t quite put my finger on when I started to feel this way, but when a friend said these lovely words to me I remember thinking it’s true. I have haven’t I. I’ve always advocated for complimenting friends, passers by and those around me but never really felt the joy it brings like I did the other day – when someone says something lovely to you. I do feel that way. I feel happier, like I’m back on track and more importantly back in control. Feeling more like myself.
Whether it’s because I’ve now lost the lockdown pounds that made their way onto my body, more movement and now running, sleeping better as my body starts to recover from the accident, stripping back on all the toxins I was putting into my body, basking in the April sunshine, socialising with friends in gardens or taking a break over the Easter holidays. Whether it’s one of these or a culmination of them all – I am so glad to be in this positive space right now. Starting to feel more like myself.
