10 things that made me happy {Week 3}

I have had a shit week. The black dog reared its ugly head and there have been fewer good days than bad. But in the spirit of focusing on the positive for this weekly link up, here are 10 things that made me happy for the week from 12th September to 18th September 2015.

Having a Bollywood night with friends. We each made an Indian dish and watched a Bollywood movie – my first in ten years {It’s still as lame as I remember}

Going for a walk down to Cronulla and enjoying an ice cream

Attending a boxing class at the gym after a long time and realising just how much I love it

Watching the kitties loving their new toy: the box in which my tent arrived!

My Facebook page crossed 300 likes {Do go ahead and ‘like’ it if you haven’t as yet}

Watching Umrika at the Dendy. Beautiful movie and it was great to go back to Newtown after what seems like ages

Buying some new teas from T2: Chillin Beets and Summer Beets

Having a date afternoon with Mr Imperfect on Friday

Catching up with my friend N after 9 months and still feeling like it hadn’t been that long

Having a lovely friend check in on me via text as she was worried about my mental health

So that’s me trying to find some silver linings in what has seemed like a dark week. And you know what? It has done me good to write this post as I remember some positive things I had in fact forgotten about. I’m hoping this coming week is a lot better.

How was your week?

Do share!

Until next time,

Cheers!!!

    So sorry to hear your week was tough. Good for you for making a list of uplifting events. I have this anti-depression mantra: “Kittens and rainbows and ice cream.” When life gets overwhelming and I feel horrible, I repeat that to remind myself of the good things in life.

      I love your mantra Lillian! 🙂 Kitties and ice cream certainly lift my mood. But on a serious note, I am considering starting a gratitude journal to help me remember the good stuff when I’m at my worst.

    I got to meet a person I really admire this weekend. I’m still processing though because I can’t look at the photo of us without crying haha. Damn PMS is rearing its head at a crap time.

      Was that at Comic Con? Always great though when you get to meet someone you’ve admired for a while. Also, I hear you about PMS…I think my depression was worse this week thanks to that. ?

    I had to dig a bit, too, because my week was full of crap and stress. But there’s always good somewhere mixed in, isn’t there? 😉

    Visiting from the 10 Things That Made Me Happy … to discover you’re a Sydneysider! And a self-professed bibliophile, feminist, and cat lover. Also, I am all too familiar with that black dog. And, I have definitely lived an imperfect life!
