A second half turnaround…?

No, I’m not about to talk about football, but how this year is progressing for me.

As you are all no doubt aware, my year has been difficult, with unlimited stress and dark moments. But….but…is it all about to change around?

Could be. All of a sudden, I’ve been invited to various mental health events and today was a case in point. I attended one such meeting and felt at ease again, networking and connecting. To top it all, I bumped into an old school acquaintance who I haven’t seen for a few years. It was good to see him and hopefully we can reconnect. It’s been too long a gap between conversations.

I feel slightly different since returning from holiday. I don’t feel as anxious or weighed down with stuff. I’m sleeping better and I’m now looking forward to these upcoming events with some relish. A chance to rediscover some missing goodness and pleasure in life.

So, I hope this is the start of a good spell. I do have them, though this one and the previous one have been at a long interval. Time to fight back and show myself that I can enjoy life once again. A bit of positivity! It’s a while since I’ve been able to utter or write that phrase.

Connecting and networking – let’s go!
