GoodBye June, Hello July!

6 months of 2018 have been, and gone… I have 5 months and 1 week left of my 20’s and my 30’s are creeping around fast. Each month that goes by this year I learn something new about myself, I face new challenges and my life has changed a ridiculous amount in a short period of time, with many more changes pending.

Here’s some of the things I have taken from the last 30 days.
People can be incredible. Honestly, the support I have received from those closest to me, and people I don’t even know is overwhelming, and amazing. I feel so honoured, humbled and grateful to have these people in my world.

These people outweigh the ones that let you down in life. The fake friends who use you and bin you off, then make up lies to defend their actions. You know the kind; these people are usually really unhappy in themselves the majority of the time.
If I could give one piece of advice from lessons learnt, the minute a ‘friend’ starts talking distastefully about another person, with no definitive cause – i.e that person has done nothing to personally and intentionally hurt them - abandon ship on that friendship, because it won’t be long before they do the same thing to you.

I opened up a lot about my personal struggles in June, and my trouble in ‘keeping up appearances’ and the funny thing is, as soon as I owned that sh*t – life started u-turning, in a completely unforced way.

In many ways, I am starting life over right now – in a very literal sense. The next 2 months are going to be full of emotions as I say goodbye to some long-term constants, and I welcome in new beginnings. I can sit here and write a list longer than my arm of goals and intentions for the next month, but instead I’m going to keep it simple:

Embrace the changes, keep my head above water and do the best I can.
