U R G H 🤦 - I was home later than usual yesterday because I was trying to remember a my password to a work forum. I had only changed it a few weeks before and I stupidly didn't write it down....what a muppet! 🤦 I eventually remembered the password in the early hours of this morning so now all is well. However, I still haven't written it down yet....In fact, I'm going to it now!!! 📝 #paproblems #palife
So last week I did not follow the Bikini Series at all. I was, again, working til 9:30pm-10pm every night to finish the list that my supervisor gave me to do before I officially left.
On Thursday I worked til 1am and on my very last day I was still there til 10pm, but I did it. I'm done. I spent my weekend relaxing and treated myself to a massage (though it wasn't the greatest, I found a deal on Groupon for my favorite place in the area Spavia and will be going there next week before moving.) I worked out for the first time in really 2 weeks yesterday.
I felt my body had changed. I was able to push myself more and I was actually relaxed while working out. I realized that working for CPS has been suffocating me more than I realized with literally every single activity I did on a day to day basis.
I feel good.
I feel like myself again and I feel like I can breathe again.
I started up Week 5 this week since I missed 2 weeks of the program. I will finish this through. It may not be on time but it will get done.

The series I've done is aiming to make us aware that the things which we feel are normal and have been overlooking from quite a long time are quite oppressing. Being a man and living up to the expectations of society's definition of masculinity takes its toll on one's mental health. According to National Crime Reports Bureau's data, in 2015, 133,623 suicides in India were reported in India, of which 91,528 (68%) were by men, 42,088 were by women. The norms set by masculinity also act as a barrier which hinders males from acknowledging mental health problems and seeking help for it which in turn leads to substance abuse and hence in most cases suicide. My brothers, you are not alone and it is fine to redefine masculinity and to accept ourselves for what we are. We need to learn to accept ourselves first and then expect others to do the same. I know you need to play versatile roles as a brother, a father, a friend, a partner and it's not easy keeping everything up but don't lose heart for you are still man enough.

We need to give ourselves the chance to breathe. ✨💕 It’s been a very rough two days for me as I deal with a personal problem. I got the strength to accept and open up about things that I have been hiding from everyone and from myself for months. It is a very scary world where we live in and there’s a tough society we strive so much for acceptance.. In the end, we put too much expectations on ourselves which kills us slowly. I have been an independent girl since I was young but somehow a part of me always feel the need to be perfect for people, people who even care the least. I work hard to make people happy, I try to give things that I know would make someone enjoy life but it feels like it is always never enough. I struggle for acceptance everyday. I struggle for love, to give and to receive. Yesterday was the first day I tried to do yoga to save myself and it didn’t work. I tried to meditate but my heart was so heavy that it hurts to breathe. It is such pain that I realize the fear has taken over my life, my mind and my soul, and as strong as I am, I don’t know how to save myself. .
As I divert my thoughts out of my everyday comfort, I pray that I stay strong and somehow, someday I lose the fear and the pressure and find acceptance in someone who can love me for who I am. 💕

So over winter I had really bad health problems, both physical and mental. I lost two people I cared deeply about, had to cut my brother out of my life, and it all just overwhelmed me. I am finally getting back on track with my health, am seriously considering converting to Christianity and am even attempting to try to find something daily that is positive about me and is because of my parents. Hard, but I have a couple of things so far.
Anyway... Tuesday morning is a breakfast/craft club at Lighthouse, and a couple of the women are now helping me get on top of the laundry backload that built up because of those health issues. I am so grateful to everybody who is willing to help me, I don't think I can ever thank you all enough. I am a very lucky woman to have you all.
Now I am sat outside on my poor while one load dries on the airer with Jane Austen and classical music, while Trish and Laura get a washing line from Trish's house to put up in the yard. <3 depending on my spoons I might get jewellery stuff out later.

Good luck today mama’s. My day has not started great at all. My baby is down with a tummy bug. I’m consumed with guilt at the thought of what I could have done differently. Seeing him in pain and discomfort from the stings to his bum (all the pooing and changing of nappies has irritated his skin) breaks my heart into a million pieces. At some point I also broke down crying with him today...-that hadn’t happened in a while...It’s soo tough! He’s asleep now, once he wakes we go to the doctors. I pray that things get easier for us today.
This has made me think of all the mums who are dealing with seriously ill children. Some in hospital, some uncertain they will even make it...my thoughts and prayers go out to all the mums in need today. I pray for Gods peace over your hearts. I pray that you are granted the strength to get through this mountain of a challenge and that you have faith that this too shall pass...
God please have mercy on all of us mothers. We are not perfect but you have entrusted us with these perfect gifts of children. It’s only by Your Grace that we can take care of them. Be our helper today Lord as always. The same faith and strength you gave us to bring them into this world, is the same we need to see them through difficult times. Take control King, take control. 🙏🏾 #Amen #Lordhearourprayers #motherhood #dailystruggles #faith #Mumlifeistough
Ondernemen, volk, is hobbels nemen!
Zo heb ik mij gisteravond bijna stukgezopen op een blog die ik voor de eerste keer zelf moest uploaden 🤣. Voorheen deed onze webmaster dat, maar laatst zei hij 'wat nou als ik het jou ga leren' en na een spoedcursus 'je klikt hier en hier en ohja denk ook aan de ALT tags en dat soort shit' moest ik nu (een maand later, dus alles was weer keurig weggezakt 🙄) zelf aan de slag.
En het leek toen allemaal zo makkelijk...
😡😡😡 En dan heb je na uuuuuuren prutsen (want de 8 jaar oude computer is ook trage 💩) eindelijk iets wat in de richting van 'dit zou het best wel eens een beetje kunnen zijn' begint te komen...kom je er achter dat je een pagina ipv een bericht gemaakt hebt...en dat je dus helemaal opnieuw kunt beginnen. 💣💥💣💥💣💥 Dus je doet je schoenen aan, je oordopjes in, loopt even een rondje met je oren vol blastbeats om het hoofd door te spoelen, geeft de poes een ontstressende belly rub, pakt de volgende fles whisky en fixt de shit 😈. Nog even een mailtje naar de webmaster met 'controleer de prutser' en als er vanochtend dan een dikke 👍 in je mailbox verschijnt, schud je met de billetjes en weet je dat de volgende blog 🥜🥜🥜 gaat worden.
VIKTORIAAAA!!!! 🌶link in bio🌶
Voor wie nog niet genoeg blabla gelezen heeft 🤣
When you're at work and all you can do is think of this guy 😉😍 #dailystruggles
