Re: Just checking in.

Super quick pop by from me but I wanted to share some good after my not-good yesterday. I've had a really enjoyable day (so far) today. I went to my gig and did reasonably well at it. I felt more confident and settled than I have for a while and I had heaps of fun. It felt like a timely reminder that maybe I actually can do stuff (and am doing stuff) even when things are a bit shaky. It was great to see that tricky brain isn't always right when it says annoying things like "not good enough" and "failing at everything" and "totally kidding yourself thinking you can do this". I feel a bit more 'got this' again today and like maybe things can be both shaky and OK at the same time.

Thanks again for being an awesome safe landing space, and a place to share the good with the not-so-good. Hope everyone is doing OK/OK-ish/better than OK today ❤

Just checking in. 

Its been a while. I’m ok at the moment. Just in my way home from therapist. I’ve had 2.5 hours of counsellor this week. It has been helpful. My brain has been quite twisted on lots of things. Have managed to sort a few. 


Having a very complex week with relationships. And also some big decisions re court stuff....I know what I’m supposed to do but emotions are getting in the way. 


Thats about it from me.
