I’ve still been writing my daily gratitude list, it’s a great reminder to be thankful for all we have in times like this. Its also good to take time to sit, reflect and just be in the moment, rather then worrying about what’s going to happen over the next few days and weeks.
I’m going to continue to share my gratitude list, as it will give me the intensive to keep writing.
These next few weeks are going to be really trying, stay grateful.
Yesterday I spent most of the morning relaxing and resting which was very much needed.
I finally got myself up and together, did the house and some laundry and as the sun was shining I decided to take the dogs on a walk to Upon Country Park and back.
It was so nice to be out in the sun even though it was a bit chilly, I love walking really helps me get out of my head and be in the moment. There wasn’t many people around, so I could still practice my social distancing.
The dogs definitely needed a good long walk and run around, they were both shattered when we got back. I had to give Scrappy a shower when we got back, as he’d been in the stinky water and stinky mud! He smelt gross lol!
I got some great pictures while we were out, which always makes me feel good.
Hopefully I can continue to safely take the dogs out on a walk, in these uncertain times we all need a sense of routine.
So just a quick update really as I don’t have a whole lot to say regarding my transition. As at the moment it feels like it’s on pause.
20/3/2020 marked 7 months post op top surgery! Which is cool but as I’ve spoken about over and over, I still feel that lack of connection with my chest and body in general. So whilst I’m extremely grateful that I was lucky enough to have the surgery, I don’t feel the happiness I thought I would feel. Maybe I put too much expectations of surgery making everything better.
Now we’re in this quarantine times, I intend to try and slow down and connect with my innermost self and really trust myself and learn to love myself unconditionally. Maybe this will help ease the dysphoria and help with the connection. I need to lose weight too as that definitely isn’t helping. But I feel stuck inside myself, I can’t move.
I intend to look after myself better because I deserve it.
Here are some pictures of my chest 7 months after life changing, life saving surgery
Now we’re facing times of such uncertainties, I think it’s a good opportunity to stop and look for the positives and be grateful for what we do have.
I’m going to try and write a gratitude list everyday.
Who’s going to join me?
I made a start, here are my lists.
I hope this gives you hope and inspiration
