  5. Join some Clubs
  6. Say Yes
  7. Spoil Myself

Lessons learned this week.

  • The only way to be confident is to be confident
  • The only way to change is to be start making changes.
  • And the only thing stopping me is a fear of making mistakes
  • My colleagues and I fear drunken louts.
  • One way to change depressive thoughts is positive mental reinforcement and chocolate
  • And a good way to hold a meaningful conversation is to talk to a gay man.

More importantly, I learnt the one person I can always talk to is my boyfriend, even if he doesn’t always understand what I’m saying. One hour of ranting and pouring my heart out to him and the world seems that little bit brighter again. It’s like Prozac, which is possibly what he takes after listening to me.

It’s been harder than I thought to face parts of me I don’t like, harder still to start changing them, and even harder than that to make it funny enough for this blog.

But, the first step has been a success. I made a new friend, I’m more comfortable talking to my work colleagues, I got a sale and I found refuge and a whole new kind of love and acceptance in the arms of my man.

And best of all, I found that challenging myself can be fun. Even if it does make for incredibly dull reading.
