I hope you all had a good week, and if it was not one of your best ones, what did you do to feel better?
On those days when I am feeling upset or going through a tough patch there is no better cure than a chat with my best friend (might also include a glass of wine😉 ), a jog to clear my mind and music…
To these I must add going round the shops to a busy place, not necessarily shopping (even although some retail therapy sometimes does it;). People and a busy spot give me energy.
And like the song goes
When you’re alone, and life is making you lonely You can always go
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry Seems to help, I know
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty…
Some people prefer going to a spot away from everything to reflect. In my case, I prefer first clearing my mind and go round the shops and sitting at a coffee shop listening to the sound of a city.
January can be a tight month financially and retail therapy might be difficult to apply;) If I am window shopping I go round the shops for ideas on how I can mix the different clothes I have to create outfits… try it out! And then if you want to get yourself a lil pressie… go for a lipstick or mascara or something small so as not to break the bank but still gives you the thrill of shopping…💄🎊
If like me you looove music (I wake up and my music is on!), on one of those bad days I select Downtown and sing and dance to it whilst getting ready to go round the shops… and yes I do then feel a little better…:)
Here’s wishing you a good week ahead and remember chin up and smile!
Lots of love
