The one thing I want to do this summer.


There's just one thing that I want to achieve this summer, and that's simply to be happy.

I've spent a long time letting someone else have power over how I feel - over whether I have a good day or a bad day, over whether I feel happy or if I feel hurt and upset, and over whether I feel good about myself today or pretty worthless.

And last week, I made a vow and a promise to myself that I wouldn't let that happen anymore. That I was going to take back control of my own happiness and that's the only thing that I want to do this summer. I want to make the most of the bright days and the light nights, discover and explore new places - and get my shit back together, too.

A few months ago, I found an old video of me and a few friends from a few years ago - just being us and laughing at something silly, and it was only when my friend pointed out how genuinely happy I looked in it, that it made me realise how genuinely unhappy I am right now and have been for a while.

And then I started looking back through more photos from even just 18 months ago, and it clicked how right my best friend was. I was so much more confident in myself and how I looked. I was posting selfies on Instagram and I felt good about myself. I was looking at photos of myself to see a genuine, happy smile beaming right back at me and it was like I didn't even recognise who that girl was anymore.

I want to get that back. I want to be that happy gal again that I can see in all of these photos. I want to feel the confidence to be me again. To get my Iife back in order, to have my own space again and to be in the right mindset to get my bum back to the gym. I don't want to feel like I'm in a constant state of anxiety anymore, just waiting for the next thing to trigger me and send me back into a downward spiral of not feeling like I'm good enough.

So, this is me saying that I'm done with all of the negativity in my life that I can control - taking myself out and completely away from situations that make me feel hurt, sad or anxious, and filling my time and life with people who make me feel good and happy instead.

Because as cliche as it is, life's too short - right?
