Moderation

It’s easy to get lost in something new, especially if it’s exciting. All I’ve been able to think about, talk about, focus on, has been work. I adore my job. Every single person I work with feels like a new best friend, we work so well as a team and our studio manager already calls us a family.

I get to meet new people and make their days four days a week. People frequently thank me, praise me, leave lovely feedback for me. I need to keep feeling over the moon about it, I don’t want this to ever feel ‘normal’ to me.

For the past month all my focus has been on work but I don’t want to burn out and I don’t want to end up resenting how hard I work.

2019 so far for me has been ‘go-go-go’, and it’s been incredible. I’m the most sociable I’ve ever been, my mental health has been amazing, I’m even planning to move out of my parents’ house in the next few months.

So moderation is a big thing for me to keep in mind for the near future. To keep afloat, to keep smiling and to keep wanting to move forward.

Another relatively new thing in my life has been dating, and I’ve been doing a lot of it. I’ve been thinking about writing about dating for a while but I still haven’t quite figured out what I want to say about it.

In thinking about moderation, dating was the first thing that came to mind (after work obv cause that’s figuratively taking up 80% of my mental capacity at all times), cause if one of my friends told me about my dating escapades as their own, I’d be mildly concerned! I know I’m being safe, always having a first date in a public place that I know well and that sorta thing. But I am meeting new people quite a lot and I reckon I need to chill out for a while, even though it is soooo much fun!
