    Aww love sorry to hear you are having a bit of a rough time, I know it’s difficult but try not to be so hard on yourself you are doing much better than you think you are.

      I’m trying. Hopefully I’ll get the hang of it. I think some days I just over extend myself and end up falling short and then getting annoyed with myself. I’ll be grand, just fancied a wee chat, to get it out of my head in the hopes it would help 🙂

    Aww Aine, this made me sad to read, knowing you’re having a tough time, but at the same time I know you’re going to be over it soon because you’ve got exactly the right attitude – accept it for what it is, and move on! I hope you’re feeling a ton better today, and that writing it all out was cathartic. And if not, well, just go look in the mirror and admire your awesome hair – that should put a big grin on your face!! 🙂

    I completely understand the freelance thing – I had a horrendous day yesterday because of a misunderstanding meaning I ended up looking useless, but really I think it was their fault for not explaining what they wanted, but of course, the client is always right, and I had to suck it up. I let it get to me all day and it was pants. In the evening we had a nice supper and watched a movie, and I had an early night with a good book, and woke up this morning feeling 100% better about everything. It doesn’t always happen that way, sometimes I get stuck in a downward spiral and my anxiety will just grow and grow, and last for weeks, and I have no way of knowing when that will happen either, most of the time it doesn’t thankfully, but I know I am lucky in that respect. Sadly the mind is not a very rational thing!! xxx

      I’m already on the up, I wrote this Wednesday evening, by Thursday I was a wee bit better. Then I sent an email explaining my plans to the client – turned out she was happy with what I was doing, just a different member of the community was having an unfounded wobble and I just doubted myself. Today, I’m almost back to full steam. It’s so easy to get knocked sideways with things. Thank you x Maybe we need to set up our own support group lol The hair does definitely help 🙂 You’re definitely right, bit of self care and lots of sleep always help. The mind needs to chill sometimes I reckon!

    Hi Aine,

    The pic drew me in. I do see in your videos occasionally that you get down and have a demanding workload. But your positive view of life and can do attitude always comes through. I think I live vicariously through you because you can accomplish so much with limitations on your time. Allow yourself the “bad” days to better enjoy the good ahead. I have a tendency towards negativity and being judgey but thankfully I can pull myself out of it and see that I am sooooo far from perfect. We are only human. I might explode if you don’t go on that trip soon – I can’t wait to see pics and the odd vid. Chin up lovely lady!

      Aw thank you my lovely! I’m grand now thankfully! Aren’t we lucky that we know to pull ourselves out of these things. I think I might explode too if we don’t go away soon! I’ve confirmed it repeatedly with the landlord that we are leaving! We just need to book flights lol

      Definitely worth it! Although very scary as we’ve been here ten years, so it’s all shiny, new and scary! Whoop
