Cats Are The Best Cure | The Positivity Diaries

Hello ! 

How are you ? I really hope you're doing well :) This week has been a little tricky but I found it very helpful every night to add to my positivity diary to restore my focus on the good things in life. So this week has served as a reminder that there is always good, just sometimes you have to look a little harder for it ! In the comments I'd love to hear three good things from your week in the comments ! I'm also adding a new section to The Positivity Diary series that focus's on what I'm looking forward to in the coming week to create a sense of optimism for the future !



Monday : I discovered the boots meal deal ! They do the best pasta, I'm obsessed !



Tuesday : I went to an interview to volunteer at a local hospice, I think it went well :)

Wednesday : My girlfriend and her cat cheered me up after a rough afternoon .



Thursday : I spent some time in the garden with my cat trying to get used to my camera and improve my photography skills ! I was pretty proud of the pictures I took but if any of you guys have some tips for blogging photography then I'd love to hear them in the comments :)



Friday : I bought a new shirt and had this super yummy` lemon cooler !



Saturday : Me and my girlfriend did the make up tag ( I saw Kim's husband do this tag on her blog and it was hilarious so I decided to do it with my girlfriend to see how much attention she pays ) and oh my gosh her answers were ... well you can see them for yourself in Thursdays post ... just be prepared for the worst ;)

Sunday : I choose to walk to the shops instead of getting driven , I feel like my activity tracker is really encouraging me to make positive health choices

What I'm looking forward to next week : I'm going to be starting work experience shadowing an educational psychologist !

So let me know in the comments, 3 good things from this past week and one thing you're looking forward to next week !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

lots of love, Marianne xxx

  3. Awww, your cat is adorable! I had one very similar when I was younger who I named "Jinx." Congratulations on starting to shadow an educational psychologist - sounds like an interesting job. Is that a career that you want to get into?

  4. I cannot wait to see your girlfriend makeup knowledge tag post, I think it's going to be a fun read, so that's my optimistic future plans for the week :D As for 3 good things, I had pizza for dinner last night and as I'm being "good" with my diet it was a real treat! I went for a walk at work this morning which was nice. I also had an amazing cup of coffee the other day that literally made my day. Loving these posts and cannot wait to hear about your experience shadowing an educational psychologist! XO -Kim

  9. I love this post. I love that you post a few sentences about your day and they are filled with positivity.
    My 3 things are that I flew to Scotland for a long summer holiday. Before my flight I got to see my friends and have fun time with them before I go. I also love buying presents for my friends and family so I enjoyed picking out presents for my cousin that I am visiting.

    Always, Izabele xxx

  10. Shadowing an educational psychologist sounds sooo cool Marianne! :O Cats are seriously the best especially when they want cuddles and pats!!! This last weeks been a bit blah with being a bit sick but getting better now! :D I'm loving my current manger he has a good sense of humour and all about the people which is sooo nice to have, seeing my flatmate's cat all tucked up in blankets (So damn cute) and someone asking how I really was today was nice, you know the kind where they really want to know. It made me realise we need to do that more often. Looking forward to a hair cut and dye this week! <3 Hope you have a beautiful week ahead Marianne! <3 xoxo
