Stressed, But well dressed.

Babysitting Babies and Book Reading.-3

Heyy… it’s Louu!!

You know those days where you just want to sit down, relax, and have an ice cream? Yeah, that’s me today!

But, from the title of this you’re probably thinking its just me being big headed and wanting to tell everyone about a perfect life I have. It’s NOT anything like that, I assure you that. It’s mainly to do about me just having a stressful day, and wanting to just get into bed and not get out again for a good while (But we all know that’s not going to happen!) 

The day started off pretty normally, I guess. I got up (because I was babysitting, again!) and then it all just got more and more stressful, and there comes a point where you’re just so done with it all that you just need to get out of the place for a while and take a few deep breaths before you say something you regret. My day didn’t come to that conclusion, in fact, it came to quite the opposite.. Theres sometimes where you become so stressed that you just cry.. yep… >>>> Me Today <<<< But, there’s not much you can do. Not really.. So.. yeah, haha!

I suppose I can’t complain about everything because not everything about today has been bad, I mean the sun was shining for a start! It was warm, and I got to see my nephews.. So, I guess what you can take from this, is there’s always something good to come out of something bad. No matter how bad it seems to be.

Now, the title of this blog, I bet you’re thinking, ‘This has nothing to do with the blog itself’ Well, it kind of does in a way.. well.. the first part anyway, haha! I mean, I got the inspiration from a shirt I bought from Peacocks, it has cold shoulders and its long and flowy and I just love it. I’ll insert a picture below.

‘Stressed But Well Dressed’

I just kinda think it fits! In some weird way. The text on this t-shirt works for the title of this post on so many levels haha!

I now plan to sit down and do nothing, like I’ve wanted to do for the whole day.

Anyhow,

Be Happy, You Do You

Safe Online?

Babysitting Babies and Book Reading.-2

Heyyy…. it’s Louu!

I don’t understand when people meet someone online, and instantly agree to go and meet this person, not only is it dangerous but its down right scary! You don’t know anything about this person, or who they are.. (hopefully you understand what I mean here?) I mean, (I’m going to use a typical example now) this person could tell you they’re an 18 year old boy, they’ll talk to young girls and convince these girls to meet up with them, and they’ll turn out to be a 50 year old. The result..? The girl, if worst comes to worst, ends up being raped and potentially killed.. that’s the scary part.

That’s why people always, always, ALWAYS go on about childrens safety online, and about how old a child should be before you let them have their own phone, or their own tablet.

The internet can be a scary and nasty place sometimes, and, theres only so much you can do to keep your child safe when they go online. On the other hand, its not just our children that we need to keep safe online, us, ourselves could become a victim of an ‘online groomer’ as some people call it. So really, is anyone completely safe these days? I mean, as long as you’re weary of what you do, and what you post I guess its okay, but theres far too many ways that people slip up. Especially people who post pictures of their children online.

Now, I’m going to talk stereotypical now and go on about ‘Facebook’ because that, a lot of the time, seems to be the place that a lot of people get caught out. As I said before, people posting pictures of their children on THEIR OWN Facebook pages can get caught out.

Most of the time it’s people who have ‘Friends’ on Facebook that they don’t know. That’s kind of where the problem starts, because you don’t know who that person is behind that  profile. The pictures get into the wrong hands and it all goes from there.

Anyhow,

Be happy, you do you..

Babysitting Babies and Book Reading.

Hey… it’s Louu!!

Well, today’s been… hectic… if thats how you want to describe it! I played babysitter today.. and that comes with it’s own challenges, keeping them entertained, making sure they’re fed etc. That’s where my *AHEM* planning skills come into play! NOT!

Children somehow are able to find so many different ways to keep you amused and entertained so, I suppose you don’t really have to keep them entertained. You just have to make sure that they don’t hurt themselves while they’re getting up to as much mischief as they can! And, as for the feeding part of the day, well, isn’t that just a barrel of laughs. First off, choosing what they want to eat, and everything you suggest, they turn down! It becomes a bit like a battle of the wits. You know, see who gives in first! (and you know it won’t be them!) So, in the end you just, somehow, make a compromise. Something along the lines of, ‘if you have the food I choose for you then you can have ice cream afterwards’ (it usually works!)

Seriously though, looking after children is super super fun, most of the time. So, I guess you just have to enjoy it while you can, and not let them get to you.. they somehow know just the right time, and know just the right buttons to press to annoy you just enough so you’re on the verge on yelling. And then, they just stop.. laugh and go back to being the little angels that they are when you have company round!

Anyhow, see you tomorrow!

Be happy, you do you

ANXIETY, WHATS THE STIGMA FOR?

Heyy… it’s Louu!!

Now, I know this wasn’t posted yesterday, but, it was my birthday yesterday, so I didn’t have much time to write anything much. Now I’ve finished this post, I’ve decided to post it. It’s just a little something I wanted to write about, and thought that it would be interesting for a couple of others too, so, enjoy..

Anxiety? What does it actually mean? There’s often a lot of stigma around Anxiety, and what the symptoms and treatments are….

Often, people have a hard time understanding Anxiety as it’s a Mental Illness, it cannot be seen! It doesn’t have physical symptoms. From my personal experience, people treat Mental Illness as if you’re an Alien or some sort of Animal. You’re not! You’re definatly not!

You’re amazing and perfect and I’m so so proud of you, each and every-one of you for fighting everyday. Fighting to strive.. to have a normal life. To get rid of those fears you have

There are so many different types/strengths of Anxiety. (if they’re even the right words to describe it!) You’ve got the sort most people, if not everyone gets, which is feeling slightly scared of doing something (you know the feeling? Heart pounding slightly, nervous giggles?) That’s because your body produces Adrenaline, (only a small amount) and that’s the thing that makes your heart race that little bit.

Then, at the other end of the scale is feeling so scared to do something that you end up having a Panic Attack. There’s still the part of your body producing that Adrenaline but, it produces too much and that, in turn induces a ‘fight or flight’ response in your body. And, 9 times out of 10, your body chooses flight. And, you run away from the ‘scary’ situation and start to panic and cry… (you know, chest feels tight, you can’t breathe properly, and often feel like you’re going to die) A lot of the time, you won’t. In fact, all of the time,you won’t. You’re not going to die from a Panic Attack. They’re scary, I get that. But, you WILL NOT DIE. I honestly do mean that.

There are lots of different ‘treatments’ for Anxiety. Most doctors offer you some sort of drugs to relax you and even out your mood. Others just offer Councilling. And, if i’m honest, you just have to find the right treatment that works for you, because not everyone is the same…

People shouldn’t be scared to understand Mental Illness, It’s more common that people think. So, just because it can’t be seem doesn’t mean it’s not there.

I don’t think everyone is going to understand Mental Illness, but a little more awareness would be nice.

Always here to lend an ear.

Be happy, you do you.

You don’t like me? Neither do i…

Heyyy… it’s Louu!

Now, this isn’t the post you think this is. It’s not a self hate post.. not really.

You’d think that, from the title, wouldn’t you? No, this is about learning to love who YOU are! People don’t do enough of that anymore, no body likes to believe anyone when they tell you that YOU ARE gorgeous! or that YOU ARE good enough. This can be for a multitude of things.. I’ll give you an example…

Year 9 in School. The year in which you and your mind are changing your so quickly and you spend a lot of the time, confused and stressed. At the end of of the year you have to choose your ‘options’ and you may have or may not have started your period.. Well, imagine all that, with constant bullying going on. Day in, Day out. Stressful right?

I totally understand that, lots of people go through it in some form throughout their school life. That’s where my point is really. Young people getting put down, day in and day out that, at some point in their lives, they don’t like to or don’t choose to listen to the positive things people say about them, and thats sad, because everyone deserves to feel good about themselves! Even if its just a little bit, at least its something!

All too often, it causes teens (and adults, sometimes) to develop depression. Now, don’t get me wrong, that’s not the whole reason, it could be, but often its just one of the many weights that join together and form this constant barrier in your mind between what you want to believe and what you actually believe and 9 times out of 10 our own reality becomes warped and we let it take over. No one should have to feel like that, EVER!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (aha, Girls Aloud quote) if anyone needs to talk, I’m here to lend an ear, just ask for any of my social medias.

Be happy, you do you..

Do you realise how far you’ve come?

Hey…. it’s Louu!!

In life; people often overlook all that they have achieved, up until that certain point in their life. I mean, you hear so SO much negativity in the world. At the moment, I think the media just want to scare us all into thinking everything is bad. Into thinking that life is so bad, all you do is work and then you die.That’s NOT true! Not by a long shot. And I’m going to tell you why….

YOU. Yes! You reading this now, what’s your dream job? Artist? Singer? Fashion Designer? Builder? Carpenter? ANY of these jobs are acceptable. Honestly! A lot of the time, there’s a stigma around what jobs are ‘Good’ and what jobs are ‘Bad’ the Good jobs are usually the well paid jobs, and a lot of people don’t settle for anything less than that certain, well paid job. But, you’re probably not able to get, said, job. That may be for a multitude of different reasons, but, that’s ok! YOU CAN DO IT!

For example; Mental Health… There are many different things that can be deemed a Mental Health Problem or ‘Mental Illness’  They can usually hinder someones chances of being able to get a certain job, but, it’s not the end of the road! A lot of them can be overcome and you can end up getting the job of your dreams. DON’T let anything stop you from achieving your dreams.. if YOU want to do it, go for it. There’s no reason why you can’t. anything is possible… Trust me, life is for living, not just surviving. Do it YOUR way!

As Zoella says; ‘This is YOUR life, not anyone elses’

It’s only a short post for now, I don’t want to be rambling on too long. But, more post’s to come soon!

Be happy, you do you..
