Life Changes

So June came and went and if I'm quite honest, looking back at it now, it is all a bit of a blur.  Unfortunately, it wasn't a blur a happiness, but a blur of sadness.  I split up with my boyfriend of nearly 5 years, it was his decision not mine and the last 4 weeks have been the toughest I have ever experienced.

He was my best friend and now my flat that we shared together no longer feels like home....I'm going through so many emotions and questioning how and why this happened but the biggest issue for me is, how do I now adjust to a life path that I didn't expect to be following.

Thank goodness though for friends and family, I really do have the best and without their support I'm not sure how I would have made it through those early dark days.  Your family are there for you no matter what and through their experience guide you through the highs and the lows of life.  My friends have been heroic and are helping me through the tears with hugs, advice and attempted moments of hilarity.

My younger brother gave me the best advice though, he told me to do all the things I have ever wanted to do but was held back from whilst in my relationship or just too lazy to do, because life takes over in other ways.  So on that note, I signed up for a 10k race in September, the race is in Swansea, where I graduated from University 10 years ago.  I also took my first Bikram Yoga class today, if you haven't tried it, then I recommend it.  The list will grow.... I just need to work it out!

Apologies for the miserable nature of the post, I guess it just goes to show that sometimes life isn't 100% rosy.  But as I endlessly say to friends, everything happens for a reason!
