Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great Christmas I certainly did as you know I have not been posting as much over the Christmas period as I just wanted to take some down time with family and enjoying the festive season. It’s finally 2017 and officially the first working day of January 2017 which is hard to believe where has that last year gone time really does fly by in a blink of an eye.
I have learned a lot in 2016 which has thought me a lot of lessons within myself and as person I have come to take life not so seriously, looking back this time year ago I was not in a great place with my anxiety and depression I never thought I would be able to achieve anything in life with the way I was feeling with endless sessions of counseling & psychotherapy seemed to me like nothing was working, in last may I came across another therapy called CBT which is known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for any of you that don’t know what it is I will explain briefly CBT aims to help people with distorted thinking, negative thoughts, behavioral patterns which will help to reinforce your thinking so it will eventually help you develop alternative ways of thinking & behaving to reduce distress levels.
I started my therapy in the end of May 2016 and I went twice a week at the start then reduced it to once a week up until November where I finished and finally I can say I am in a place where I feel comfortable and I have learned so much about myself it wasn’t a walk in the park but well worth it and I would recommend it to anyone who suffers with anxiety, depresssion or any other mental illness’s, that was my main battle of 2016. I finally started aimeemariehayden.com fashion, beauty & lifestyle blog in 2016 which was a huge positive in my life I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love connecting & interacting with people it brings happiness into my life.
What can I say about 2017, this year will be the biggest year yet for me I am open to many new opportunities coming my way, new experiences & to travel more is a must for me as I feel I am missing out on so many beautiful places, It will be very exciting and a journey that I will be taking you all on with me.
