How To Take the Headache Out of Life Changes

 So this is a difficult time for everyone around the world as mentioned in introducing being trapped in the house and how are you coping during these strange times

We are all having to deal with these life changes because of COVID 19. You know what though, this is the time to make these small changes in your own lives. What changes do you think you need to do? Organising timekeeping, routine making, self-care, mentally and physically, just to name a few. Well, this is the perfect time to do these things. If you haven't started it doesn't matter.
Now is perfect to do what you haven't done but have meant to.
You may also want to pick a new skill. So stop procrastinating and do it! Life is too short to not do what you need for yourself. There are so many places online that can you get free information and lessons on whatever you want to learn to do or get better at. these places include youtube, books, or ebooks. Have you got a kindle? Here's a link to get one if you haven't already Kindle E-reader What about trying to help yourself with your mental health. My favourite books to do this are How to be nice to yourselfHappy, and You are Baddass.  For time keeping my favourite book is Time is Money.  At the moment I'm reading The makeup of a confident woman which is about doing your makeup in a limited time and how important it is to do it for your own self well being.
As I said this is a difficult time for things and there are lots of things that are actually changing socially. And some of these are challenging for us as being social but as a disabled person, I am in the house permanently until the lockdown was eased and I am preparing to move home so getting ready to do so. I have mentioned this in one of the biggest stresses.

 So I completely understand where everyone is going coming from. Love and Peace 

Ok! What now? Things are changing yet again Urgh!

 Today, I have no makeup on, I have got tinted eyebrows and tinted eyelashes because I find that I can't do those easily. I get those done professionally, once a month.

Since COVID has slowed with everything and started to open things up a bit more recently. It's made a lot of things easier to do, especially as a disabled person with cerebral palsy, and the ability, or shall I say, lack of ability to do something for themselves, very much. because it's the way things are done. I, still haven't completely done, what everyone does, which is their legs or underarms yet, because I have not had time to do it. And because it's not been easy to get a place to do them because of my disability. I can't wait to have that back. I also have my nails done. with acrylic tips with infills.

And the reason I wanted to do that is that I'm finding if I'm like that. I have some kind of control over what my body has and does. it makes me more like me to be free, as a human.

I've been talking about COVID before. The fact that things were not able to be done. As for, for people like us with the disability and those who choose not to, but those who can do it on their own.

I wish it was more readily available for people like myself, to be able to have it as a proper way of life, and less of a treat. It's not just a choice, it's something we must have done because nobody doesn’t want to be looking their best.

I mean, at the moment. I'm not completely my best I'm my hair is a bit of a mess as you see in the photo above.

I've got no makeup on as my skin has been a bit iffy and I haven't felt right, in myself, to do it. I mentioned in my last video that I had a tooth playing up so I went to the dentist and had that fixed now. I'm feeling a lot better, and it's fantastic weather at the moment and I'm loving the weather.

However, my skin hates it, it will not let any makeup stay on my skin, I have to be incredibly careful with it. I can only wear a moisturiser or a light BB cream in the summer, with a little bit of lipstick because I sweat everywhere on my face and I find it very difficult to have anything to stay on my face even with a primer.

I mean, I love my primers, and the primers I'm using right now are the ones from. I haven't got them with at the moment. Yeah, that it's the Maybelline ones I think if I remember rightly or the Revlon ones I'm using at the moment. Um, but I am adoring the Maybelline Baby cream, which is great. isn't thin and runny like some are great just to dab on and then using the kabuki brush. It's, you can make it smooth across your space, and it has SPF in it. The same with the Maybelline foundation liquid foundation which is good too.

Everyone is different, and I would love to know what everyone else thinks about this because I'm finding makeup hot and difficult to wear.

Although a touch of lipstick, goes a long way, and that is something that one of my heroes, or shall I say, heroines did and that's Marilyn. Marilyn Monroe. Because she wore bright red lipsticks quite often and had blonde hair. I've been researching a little bit about her, she said that her hair was called pillowcase blonde. For her, which is an interesting way of describing a type of blonde. So, although I haven't got that type of blonde. I wouldn't go that blonde and probably couldn't either.

I have got it curly like her, although it's not tidy. Although, because it's too hot for me and like many, I'm dealing with frizzy hair. and it's gone crazy with this weather, again, which I'm loving otherwise, and I felt a lot better since my little minute video that I did on my phone feeling absolutely rubbish and then having to have a feeling replaced.

I'm back from now. I will be trying to do more, but, again, because my moods, often change because of my disability on a to day basis it may be not as consistent.

I have said this in a lot of my posts as well. Because of that, I have a lot of different mood swings, and it makes it very difficult to have some kind of consistency. I am trying very very hard at the moment.

The one thing I'm loving, that is helping me is my volunteering with Galaxie global radio, and I'll put my link in for that as well. In my post, as well as on, the video so it's my thing that I do that for two shows a week. since originally posting this as a video the station has now been closed.

It gives me a bit of stability in a routine of sorts, you know, as well as sort of dealing with my skin.
When the kids are at school, I find it a lot easier to do things because they can not be in it and not disturb me.

Whereas, at the moment, or, at times when I have gone quiet is possible because I have had them at home. They've wanted my attention so I'd rather give them my attention than give the whole of my attention to a video, or whatever else I was doing.

Because it's not fair on them. to get them out of their routine and not give them anything. So, I've been talking about that to them and saying you know as long as you know they don't mind as long as I've mentioned it met up a minute. They don't mind being mentioned but not being put in. So, that's fine, I'm trying to hopefully get more routine going this week, and I'm a bit busy tomorrow, but I will try and put a video out maybe put an Instagram post out tonight. I'm out and about I should have really should have done what I was doing outside getting some stuff for the house. Because I've enjoyed what I was doing and I'll put that in a different post as well because that's something I've wanted to talk about too.

For now, I'm going to say love you and leave you and I'll see you next week because I will be back. Although it's going to be a little bit difficult during the holidays, I will try my best.

But if not, I will do the best I can. So I'm going to leave love you and leave you for now and I'll see you next time

A New Season ahead
