The story so far
I started blogging in 2013 as a way of tracking my weight loss endeavours and a way of journaling my battle with compulsive overeating and mental health problems.
In the time since I wrote my first post I have completed two degrees, developed chronic migraines and gone from a, generally happy, active 20-something to a frequently depressed nearly 30 year old who has no idea where her life is going.
This blog came about from a desire to just embrace that. It's okay to not know where your life is going to take you. What's important is not setting yourself up for failure with your attitude or the way you talk to yourself.
Happy is a loaded word for me. No one can be permanently happy, that would make the truly joyful moments seem less impressive. My new aim it to find contentment by being present and grateful and living my life with a sense of curiosity.
