Currently Listening to: Andra Day

Andra Day Rise Up

I heard this song a few weeks ago and this song could not be a better reflection of my year. It was only when I caught myself in the mirror, lip-syncing this song with the biggest smile on my face, that I realized I had finally broken out of depression. A few months ago I would not have had the confidence to even lip-sync to myself, as silly as that sounds. 2015 has been a rollercoaster for me, the start of the year is a grey blur. As cliche as it sounds, it did get better, I found running, fitness and got my mojo back.

I’m determined to really enjoy this Christmas season, from wearing way too many tacky Christmas jumpers to sequins to red lips and making plenty of cookies. If I’ve learnt anything, depression does get better, in steps, one day you’ll feel a lot better, the next day a lot worse, but it does improve. Very slowly.

Here’s to enjoying the last few days of 2015.
