Strong Under Stress

I was just sitting wondering what to write about as I haven’t posted anything for the last few weeks. My plan was to post an article at least once a week but sometimes life gets in the way. Doing a 9-5 job leaves me feeling exhausted half of the time and if I’m honest, sometimes trying to think of what to write (if it’s not an entertainment news story) can be difficult as I want my blog to be real and authentic, not rushed articles that I have posted just for the sake of it.

As I stated before, I was wondering what to write about whilst sitting at my desktop in my kitchen. I usually write using my laptop but can’t, as it won’t accept my password for some odd reason. This has been frustrating because I have had to change passwords and go through all sorts, just to be able to access the dashboard for maishacaramel.

My laptop not working is just one thing in a long line of frustrating events that I have been experiencing, especially recently. It came to me to write about what I have been going through as I’m sure many can relate in their own way.

I have so many things that I am grateful for; I have just started a new job, I live in a beautiful house, have my car, good health etc. But as much as I have those things, I have had some very stressful things to deal with and as soon as I sort one thing out, I’m given something else (or three) to handle when I just need/want a break from feeling stressed out.

Two years ago I had my first car bought for me (lucky me!!) because I wasn’t working at the time, I couldn’t afford the tax and insurance and so I started driving last year when I got back into employment. from the start, the car had so much issues to the point where it was a joke. Parts were braking down every minute and at one point no mechanic could pin point what the problem was, which was frustrating and costing me a lot of money, paying just for it to be looked at. I ended up paying more than what the car was worth. I finally found out what the problems were and thank God, finally was able to get the car fixed.

A few weeks before getting my car fixed, literally just after celebrating the new year, I was on my way home from a party in a cab with my friend. My friend was on her phone and casually turned to me and said “there’s a furniture storage warehouse in Purley that’s on fire.” I sat up real quick as I had furniture that had been my Grandads before he passed away, stored in the same warehouse-that was now on fire. Unfortunately nothing was able to be salvaged and I was saddened by the fact that my Grandfathers belongings had been completely destroyed, I didn’t get to keep one thing. On the positive side I had insurance which was swiftly sorted out and I am going to put the money towards a deposit for my own place. Just as things (yes there’s more) seemed to calm down, not long after the fire I then had a car crash, luckily no one was hurt but the accident was my fault and so it affected my insurance claim.

I sometimes wonder how I’ve managed to not breakdown due to some of the events that’s happened in my life. I always say that God has given me supernatural strength lol, maybe he has, but what also helps me is talking about what I’m going through with friends and family, I pray and sometimes read a scripture. I also try as much as I can to think positive thoughts e.g I went through a lot with my car but when I’m driving past people sitting at the bus stop on a windy, rainy day I’m so thankful for it. Life can get very stressful at times but I would say that the key is to not let it overwhelm you and to stay positive knowing that you will get through it.
