A Thought For Monday | Focus On Yourself

As you may have noticed, I have been slacking on the blog front recently. Year 12 is rather hectic so I seem to be spending all the time I'm not at school, either doing some form of school work or sleeping! I am trying to swing back into a proper blogging routine though so hopefully you'll be seeing more of me on your computer screen. 

November 1st marks my little blog's second birthday and to mark the occasion I've decided that RealityLeavesLotsToImagination will become home to another series. On top of my usual posting days of Wednesday and Friday, I'm going to be starting 'A Thought For Monday' on - you guessed it - Monday.

'A Thought For Monday' will be a collection of posts where I try to enlighten you with my words of wisdom and inspiration, and share some important bits and pieces I feel you should know about. It's going to be rather a lot of me simply noting down my thoughts and feelings, sometimes without coming to any real conclusions in an attempt to get your minds going. I'd like to cover a fair few 'tough' topics and cater it as much to my lovely readers as possible, so if you have any requests for topics, feel free to let me know.


There has been a bit of turbulence in my life at the moment involving a certain someone of the male variety. I won't share too much gossip just in case any unwanted eyes are on my blog (you really do never know who's reading, do you?), but I feel the words turbulence and confusion really do sum it up nicely. I think we've all been in the situation at one time or another when you're not really sure where you stand with a person, whether it be romantically or not, and it really isn't pleasant.

Positive thinking has never been my forte. I seem to be spending much more time expecting failed dreams and a broken heart than I'd like at the moment but I promise I'm working on it. I'm trying to focus on myself more, putting in that little bit extra effort to stop over thinking and over analysing every tiny detail, and start looking after my body and my mind more. Because let's be honest, how on earth can you expect someone else to love you for you, if you're too busy fretting over subtleties and minuscule details, to really be yourself?

I've decided to make a few changes to my day to day life here and there to make sure I give myself a bit more 'me time'. A tad more exercise (even if it just is a long walk every now and again; I'm really not the gym type), eating well and many a good nights' sleep will do me nicely. After all, doesn't a happy body and mind equal a happy life?


  1. This sounds like a great new posting idea! 'a thought for Monday'. It's true that you need to focus on yourself more for others to like you for who you are. I think that was a very good point to make so thanks for that.

  2. I love this post/series idea Chloe and I can't wait to hear your thoughts of wisdom and inspiration, something that you know I love hearing/writing about! I hope this 'turbulence' as such blows over soon-I'm sure your bit of 'me' time will help!xo
