Update time

I've started slacking. The thoughts that used to go in here have started going into the thought journal my counsellor asked me to keep. It's been really useful, but I'm too lazy to write out all my thoughts twice! I figure keeping that updated is more important...

I've been surprised how useful it's been actually. When I used to keep diaries they usually re-inforced negative feelings rather than helping to release them. But the important thing about the thought journal is that I make sure I record my most positive feelings as well as my most negative. The positive half is starting to fill up more, it's nice to see.

I've got quite a lot to be positive about at the moment. Boyfriend booked a trip to Tokyo for my birthday in October - can't wait! Really really excited. Went once before and loved it. Looking into all the things I want to do.

And bought an eReader! I wasn't sure how I felt about it at when they were first released, but I have so many books and so little space, I love being able to carry hundreds of books around with me on one little box. And it's so pretty and shiny and little!

Work is going pretty well too, we've launched a new catalogue recently which is pretty exciting (although it means we have to move everything around which is a bit of a nightmare). Sales are mostly pretty good and I'm still meeting lots of lovely customers.

So lots to be happy about. I just need to learn how to hold on to the happy things when I feel low...
