Happy October!!

Hello beautiful people!

Who else is flabbergasted that it is actually October!? I know we all say this every year, but time goes so so fast it almost scares me. I think not being in school (a.k.a torture chamber) has really been the reason why time has passed me by so fast this year. I was looking through my One Line a Day memory book last night and realised I started it in February, a whole 7 months ago! That seems so crazy to me that I have managed to document every day of my life for that period of time. I am so excited to read them all back. If you have no idea what I am talking about then I will leave a link here to a blog post I wrote when I first got the book.

Anywhooo, I'm not really sure what direction this post has. I am currently sat with my favourite Body Shop face mask on, listening to uplifting songs. I suppose that's where we could start; happiness.

These past few months have been especially trying for myself and my family. We've had a lot of 'stuff' happening and I've really been struggling to see the light and as someone who loves the quote 'Happiness is a choice' this has been difficult. I'm really good at shutting out my feelings and retreating into a place by myself. Which is a disaster in itself, as everyone knows how bad overthinking is for your mind and heart. I am trying to teach myself that its is okay to cry sometimes, that I can tell people how I feel and that putting on a face isn't the best way to go. If we don't face what we're going through head on, those emotions will only build up inside you and slowly destroy your self and happiness. 

So I guess what I am saying to you all is that you need to take some time to face up to your problems. Have a frank discussion with yourself about the happenings in your life, and then find the happiness in the situation. Because in every bad situation is good. Now, I am not saying that the good out weighs the bad - it rarely does - however what I am saying is that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Just think back to all those times when you we're younger that you thought your world was falling apart (probably from some silly boy crush or bitchy friends) you managed to get through that, and you are almost certainly a better person because of it. I believe in you!

I know this post was rambley and made little sense, but it is just what I am feeling at this time. I'm not even going to proof read this. It's real and true.

If you got this far, please tweet me @ohhitsonlyalice I would love to get to know you.

Thanks for being you,
Love Alice x
