So today is World Mental Health day. It’s 10.30pm and I’m writing this post with approximately 1.5 hours until the day’s out and it becomes another year until World Mental Health Day 2019 is upon us. I really just wanted to drop in and say that speaking up, out and about mental health isn’t something that has to end at midnight too.
So, Summer has officially come to an end (even if the weather isn’t saying so just yet- I’m actually typing this while sat outside trying to soak up the last of the sun) and the thought of Autumn has me scrambling to hold onto my tan for as long as naturally possible. FYI, I am not a sun bed user and aren’t so much a fan of fake tan, so they are out of the equation! I could book flights to a hotter destination, which may still happen, but as a quick fix to maintain healthy glowing skin I’m choosing to ramp up the moisturising!
August 5th 2018 and I have officially been 26 for one whole day. Well actually, nearly two now. I’ve reached the ‘wrong side of 25’ and I’m not too sure how I feel about it…
It’s 1am exactly and my alarm is set for 6am. That’s 5 hours until I’m expected to wake and tackle the day ahead. I have Beyoncé barre with DKNY Sport first thing, before heading to the agency to collect a package and have a catch up with my bookers. I’ll then come back to the apartment for a conference call, will work out- I’m thinking a run seeing as it’s forecast to be nice tomorrow- and then will sit down to tackle emails, work my way through an important contract, put in time on a secret project and scout new music for my spin classes. I’m planning to have a productive day, yet there’s one problem- I can’t fall to sleep.
Insecurities are something that creep up on all of us at some point in life. Chances are, there will always be something that we would want to be different. We all get a little down every now and again or wish that we could change that thing about ourselves. Do you know what? It’s completely natural. I’m sure you know the saying, ‘Nobody’s perfect.’ Well, it’s kind of true. Each and every single person is unique and even though there may be somebody that you look up to- that person who radiates confidence, a role model or someone who encapsulates your idea of perfection- it’s likely, if not certain, that they have their own insecurities too.
