The past two weeks have been stressful but have resulted in good outcomes.
The funeral went well for my nanny, some family things were resolved, my uncle came home from south africa whom I haven't seen since 9 years ago. We've spent more time as a family.
I've found out (the hard way) who my true friends really are and have found out a lot about myself.
I need to find a new coping mechanism for stress, but not sure where to start. I was doing yoga every day to try and cope with stress, I found it to be really beneficial (even though I'm only a beginner) not only had I become slightly more flexible but I felt more awake and energized and slightly more calm when I deal with the daily stresses. However when nanny passed away and a lot of things happened with some people I know I found those things were too big to deal with through just yoga alone. Mostly because it was hard to fit in yoga really, so I must find another coping mechanism alongside yoga. I might start looking into meditation again. There is this amazing website called audioharma.org (which I haven't visited in a long time) they have a good lot of stuff on how to deal with emotions and stresses and other things on spiritual awareness etc.
I also want to read my Bible more as I find comfort from that at times and it helps to build my cultural and historical knowledge as well as growing spiritually too. I intend to keep the yoga up in my life too as I do enjoy it.
In other news, I got a hair cut last night. I've begone with the hairstyle I've pulled off for nearly 3 years now and went for a slight change. Kyle, my boyfriend is disappointed as it is a bit shorter and he likes long hair. To be honest it is not much different in length but he keeps pulling my hair in the hope that it will grow lol!!
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
