A Little Look Back On The Positive Moments From My Lockdown Experience

When 2020 started, I felt like it was a fresh start with a whole bunch of new possibilities. Little did I know, 2020 had a different idea for all of us. This year just really hasn’t been too kind. However, I have decided to look back over the whole 2020/lockdown experience in a more positive way to see what good things have happened so far this year.

Films I’ve Watched Recently ♡ The Fifth Edition

Life keeps throwing me curve balls. Whenever I feel like things are settling down, some new and crazy twist gets thrown at me. However, one thing that stays consistent is my life is my love of films.

I feel like I haven’t posted one of these post types in forever and I haven’t watched that many films since then either. With so much going on in my life, it can be tricky to find the time for a film. I’m hoping that I can find more time from now on though.

Even though I didn’t watch that many films since the fourth edition of this post series, I did watch a few so I figured that I would share this post with you anyway.

Things On My July To Do List

Starting a new month has always been a pretty exciting time for me. I love the idea that a new start is here and I get to reevaluate my life and my goals. Am I making progress on my goals? Are the goals I’ve set still relevant? If the answer is no, then I get to rethink the goals and see how I can keep improving myself and my life.

For those of you who read my last blog post, you’ll know that my life has been changing a lot. Since those changes, I’ve been thinking about my goals even more. So I figured that this would be a perfect time to write a post here all about my July goals.

For those of you who have been following my life through this blog, then I have quite an update for you…

A Playlist For Mental Health Recovery

My mental health sucks right now. Lockdown is draining me and I feel like I’m stuck. Right now, my main way of making myself feel less glum is listening to some motivating, spirt lifting, happy, positive songs.

Music has a weird way of making you completely change your mood and it can even give you courage that you didn’t know that you had. That is why I think that music is more important than ever right now.

I’m not sure if your mental health sucks too but I do know that a positive and uplifting playlist is great all of the time. It’s just especially great when your mental health isn’t at it’s best.
