I have lost my focus and I think my impromptu two week holiday has a lot to do with this. I am starting to over think everything (especially instagram) and really don’t know which way to go. In both my work and my life, I have no idea what I should do first. There are so many little things competing for my attention and they have become like background noise – always there and not worthy of my attention. If I don’t have  massive goal or deadline coming up then really, what’s the point?  This is probably absolutely the worst thing that can happen when you work full time and blog in your spare time. My focus is so necessary for me to achieve my personal and professional goals. Actually it’s vital and I need to get it back.

For July I am going plastic free, as I mentioned in my 7 Things. I find it incredible that every single bit of plastic ever made still exists. How crazy is that? People use plastic and carelessly throw it away without a second thought. But too much of it can’t be recycled and far too much of it ends up in the sea. It’s being eaten by the fish, polluting our seas, and ending up on beaches as disgusting litter.

Ahhh family…heaven and hell in a word. You love them and more often than not, they love you back. Every now and again something happens which makes you questions whether or not you actually like them.

Recently on Instagram the theme of self-love has been taking over. A little while ago Cat Meffan challenged people to write five things about themselves that they love. It’s so easy to be negative about the way you look, the things you say, the amount of exercise you do (or don’t do) so it warmed my heart to see how this wonderful method of self-love was taking off. Without further ado, here are the things I love about myself.

I woke up this morning on the wrong side of the bed. While I was at home it didn’t matter; I was at home. While I was on the train it also didn’t matter; I had a book. As soon as I got into work, it mattered. I wanted to be anywhere else. Everywhere else. I just didn’t want to be at my desk. On Friday I was vomiting rainbows and shitting glitter because the weekend was around the corner and today I am crying tears of despair mixed with woe-is-me. I need to change my Monday state of mind.
