Hey everyone, how are you?
After seeing some friends yesterday, I am feeling refreshed and happier.
Some friends and their little one came over yesterday in the afternoon for a couple of hours. We hung out and talked and played the drums. It was so much fun and so good to see them. They bought over some doughnuts and we had some soft drinks whilst their little one played in the garden. It was a really hot day and we all spent time outside. There was also some drum playing as well which was fun to do. I have been drumming some more lately and it has been fun. I came up with a couple of short beats that I filmed and uploaded to Instagram. I feel as though I am improving more and my friend and I have scheduled in a drum lesson for next week over WhatsApp. So, I need to get in some more practice by then. When they left in the evening I just chilled and relaxed some more. It was such a good day. Which have been rare for me lately.
Today, after having a chilled day, I have some things that I need to achieve. But I am going to be mindful about the pressure that I put on myself and try not to have unrealistic expectations. It is hard to do this as it is something very common with people with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). I know that I am a perfectionist and that it can make things harder to do as I always expect myself to be perfect. So, I am going to be mindful of that and just do what I do and if I don’t get as much done then that is okay. I want to do some writing and some more drum practice. Just those two things are enough to keep me occupied for most of the day. And I don’t want to add anything extra into it as that will just stress me out and that is something I am trying to lessen.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
