Empfire

When I first started writing a blog, I didn’t actually realise I was writing a blog. I was an avid user of Piczo at the time, and I mainly used my site to showcase my “graphic design” skills.

But then one day I added a text box to the home page of my Piczo site, typed out the date, and then proceeded to write about what I had got up to that particular day. In fact I probably wrote about going to see The Dark Knight at the cinema because, let’s face it, that’s all I did in the summer of 2008. This was my very first blog post, even if I didn’t know it at the time.

You may have noticed I didn’t share a Little Victories blog post for March or for April. Well, this was because March and April weren’t particularly great for me. I struggled to think of a single positive thing to write about.

To be honest, May was a pretty awful month as well with the passing of my nan. However, I am determined to keep this series going because I love it, and know reflecting on the little things in life can really help me with my mental health.

And when I sat down and started to think about the positive things that had happened last month, I was surprised at how many good things happened.

Just do it

The title of this post makes it feels like it’s an advert for Nike. It’s not. But a non-sponsored fitness post is coming to the blog soon, so keep your eyes peeled if that’s your thing!

On a Sunday, I make time to look over my diary and plan out the up coming week. I’ll make myself a little (read: impossibly massive) to-do list including many tasks that have rolled over from the previous week.

You see, I have a bad habit of putting things off. Whether it be making a phone call, sending an email, running some errands or arranging an appointment, unless I have to do it that day at that exact moment, chances are I’ll just push it to another day.
