What's with all the what if's?

I'm back finally. I would have been back days ago but I've been too busy racking my brain wondering what on earth to write about since my wonderful little world makes for pretty dull reading.

So I was listening to a song called 'What if I'm right?` by Sandi Thom (check it out on youtube) and it's basically about having the perfect partner and yet still wondering whether your doubts will be right and everything will go wrong. And it got me thinking, why do we always do that?

Just because something is perfect and we are happy, we immediately think of when the next downfall will be.

Like if you get a new job, there is always that thought that it'll be horrible and not work out...

Or deciding to have a picnic...but what if it rains?

Most people I know don't take themselves too seriously...
And yet they all still have these 'What if ?' questions for everything. They have the ability to laugh at themselves but don't have the ability to jump in to any situation feet first.

Maybe we should all just....

Dance in the rain without fear of a cold...

Ask him to marry you without fear of him saying no...

Have that dream holiday without counting every penny...

And just live on impulse for a while. Forget about the stress of life and let everything just be, even for just one day and see what a difference it makes to you.
While I was in Scotland, the sky was the clearest I've ever seen it and we just stood outside for a while in the cold just watching the stars. It was wonderful to just stand there and watch the beauty of it without thinking about anything at all. You should try it sometime :)

Busy week

It's been nearly a week since my last post...I'm terrible at keeping up with this!

Anyway short post just to post a couple of pictures from the AYME meet up at my house yesterday. It was a brilliant day with a BBQ, lots of cake and Wii Mario Kart :D

And I passed my driving test second time round so I'm over the moon :)

I'll be M.I.A for the next week because I've got my birthday tomorrow and then I'll be camping in Scotland for the rest of the week but will post when I get back .x.

If you fall off the ball, just get back on it

You've probably noticed from my recent posts that I've not been doing great physically or emotionally. And waking up every morning feeling like my legs are going to give way doesn't fill me with joy and I certainly didn't feel like getting up and going to a fitball class at the gym.

But finally on Monday, I found enough energy (hidden in a secret place that my body likes to hide from me) to go to the class for the first time in over a month. I've been dreading going for fear it would make me so ill and I'd be set back to where I was a few years ago. But I decided to just go and hope for the best.

And I'm fine. Well I say fine...I have a bruised hip because while doing this (the picture isn't me by the way, I'm usually really wobbly)...
...I fell off and landed on my hip at a funny angle. It's typical really, something painfull had to happen and it just so happened that my own silly nerves chose that particular moment to have a twitch and sent me flying very un-gracefully to the floor. But as they say, you just get back up again and I'll be going to the gym tomorrow and hopefully won't fall off the ball!

Anyway on to the main point of this pointless post! Other than my fall and relapse, everything has pretty much been brilliant - Mark's job is going well, I have the summer off before I start work again and start my OU course and we have booked a holiday to Alvor in Portugal as an early 2nd year anniversary celebration. The place looks beautiful and I'll be dragging Mark out early one morning to get some good photo...He doesn't know this yet!!!

So I guess even when everything gets really hard and stressful, we just have to have a little faith that things will be okay. Not in a religious way, but in a more faith in yourself sort of way.

Or faith that dreams can come true if you work at them hard enough and don't just wait for things to happen.

So I shall get back on that ball tomorrow and will get that amazing goddess-like figure I've been dreaming of...Or not! But we can all hope right? Or did i just completely contradict my point? Ah well...Tis my post, I'm allowed to contradict and confuse you all haha!
So til the next time I remember this blog exists - hopefully sooner than last time...

Bucket list

Blimey, it's been a few weeks since I wrote anything. My brain hasn't been able to function for the last few weeks, what with concussion and general icky M.Eness. I'm still not feeling brilliant but my brain has agreed to work today on the one condition that I do pretty much nothing for the rest of the evening...chocolate and Transporter 2 it is then :)

I meant to post about writing a bucket list a while ago but since I haven't been around I haven't done it. If you don't know what a bucket list is, it's basically a list of all the things you want to do/accomplish before you kick the bucket (or die, for want of a better way to put it). It was never something I bothered to think about before I got ill because I always thought there would be plenty of time for everything and nothing would stop me from doing it all. And then I got ill. Suddenly all my hopes and dreams pretty much went out the window for the first few years. But recently I've realised I should just do everything I want to do but in smaller bite size chunks.

So I decided to write my own bucket list. It has everything from the list of countries I want to visit, to every major city I want to see, to finishing my degree and finally meeting my AYME friends :) It's not a very long list at the minute since I haven't had chance to think about it properly, but this summer I'm going to make a proper one :)

So have any of you wrote a bucket list? Or if you were to write one, what would you put as your top three things to do/accomplish?
