Today is just one of those days where almost a year ago I would have no doubt suffered some form of anxiety. I feel a little bit stressed but I'm taking it in my stride. I was up doing my usual dog walking routine at 6:30 this morning which was fine, I had everything organised and made my way to work but forgot to renew my weekly train ticket due to my mind running through everything I had to do today...resulting in a £20 fine. Great I thought...onwards and upwards. I am buying a weekly pass because I need to renew my annual one, so I went online to do this realising the cost is extortionate (money was my main lead to anxiety) so that was great but it needs to be done so I purchased the pass. I am now working until 5 as always, then have to walk the dog when I get in for an hour, then I have a doctors appointment that I can't move to any other date. So I plan to get in and be able to sit and make my tea at around 8:00pm today. As I say, should this have been a year ago I don't think I would have been so relaxed. But I know all of the tasks have to be done at some point so I'm getting them over and done with, and I am just concentrating on the simple things that I can't wait to enjoy, which tonight will be eating my lovely tea, sticking the heating on, cuddling up with my dog and catching up on Nigelissima and The Great British Bake Off.
Sometimes you just have to look through the horrible stuff and make a bigger deal of the nice things. I'm just being a bit impatient today.
