Little Ray of Sunshine

Hello Vic Park,

Being stuck inside my home for weeks on end you would think I would be bored out of my brain but I have actually been extremely busy ! I have had multiple uni assignments due since my last post and I don’t think I have taken my eyes off my computer or left my desk


… okay there might be a slight exaggeration in that last statement…


Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do any reading for fun as I had suggested in my last blog but if reading academic articles is considered fun then I can safely say I have read what feels like hundreds. I have, however, been doing some meditation and listening to music which has been really enjoyable. I wasn’t too sure what I should write in my blog this week, there is only so much to write about when I do the same thing everyday.


I would like to consider myself a positive person, and for those of you out there who have been reading the articles I write, I hope that you gain this impression from me. But as happy as I try to be I do have times when I really struggle, as everyone does. This week I felt my mental health was not as strong as what it normally is. This was for no particular reason too. There was just a day in my week where I just felt sad for absolutely no reason at all.


A blog is about telling anyone who is reading how you feel, and this is just how I was on that day.


This made me think about how lucky I am to still be working, have uni to keep me occupied and to be living at home with my family. To think that I struggled when I have so much to be thankful for. How many people are out there, not as fortunate as me are struggling?


So I wanted to show you this.


I had a bad night's sleep and work up feeling pretty ordinary, until I saw this.



I got teary just looking at it. It was the most beautiful sight to start the day with. You will have to excuse the quality of the photo, I took it on my phone after racing out of bed half asleep but I just had to capture the moment. I felt so uplifted and the rest of my week was so joyful. We are already facing difficult times but bad days come and go regardless.


I wish all of you a fabulous week but if you are struggling, I hope you find your little ray of sunshine.



Until next week,

Emily
