I just wondered how every one's new year has been so far? I hope you have been lucky and things have been riding smoothly for you all, here is a quick sum up of my 2009 so far.
All in all it has been pretty positive and good, may it continue! I'm attending Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and it is an amazing positive experience and I have only had 3 sessions so far and it is already helping me. Basically what it does is help you manage to think differently and in my case more positively. I not only find it helpful but I am learning a lot about the way us humans think and it makes you question thoughts and challenge your thinking! I haven't got any diagnosis at the moment though but I have wide cocktail of eccentricities and idiosyncrasies (that is what I'm thinking of them as now and not that there is anything wrong with me like I thought before) My CBT guy says that he even sees doctors and politicians which made me feel better because I did feel weird that I was even having to go to see someone.
Since the CBT I managed to act in a short film which which is a big thing for me to get back into, I wouldn't have taken the challenge on for a long time before but im slowly getting that old confidence back.
Also I am looking forward to moving to Edinburgh with my boyfriend in March after my CBT finishes, we are both living at home again right now and live 2 hours away from each other so you can imagine how excited we are to be moving in together again, and to Edinburgh the most gorgeous city ever! I am looking forward to all the little boutiques and craft shops! it will widen my business opportunities too.
I also found out one of my best friends is expecting a baby and it is due on the 4th of September, 3 days after my birthday, I am so excited.
I have a good feeling about this year! the world doesn't seem as shit as usual and positive things are happening, I just hope you are all having a good year too!
