What Fatigue Is Trying To Tell You

My goodness this feels good to back and typing away. I apologise for my sudden departure with little to no explanation but I *hope* I am back for regular posting! My weeks have been completely swallowed by my most recent endeavor; I am currently in the process of gaining my certificates in fitness! I've been on the fitness train for a little while now so getting to a position where I'm going to be considered a 'fitness professional' is a little bit cool.

I am required to attend Tafe four full days a week and for a girl who hasn't lived on a school schedule for a solid 7 years it has been intense and fatigue has slapped me in the face. By the end of every week I have been moody and depleted of any kind of emotional nutrients so writing a blog has been something I've been happy to place in the backseat (only till I get my things back in order!).
Since I am currently dealing with end-of-week fatigue and I know a lot of people are too I thought we'd touch on that for this week. Let's lower the threshold and a create sustainable change to eradicate feeling drained and over it all.

Is what you're doing really what you want to do? Straight off the bat, ask the question 'is this really what I want?' If not, annoyance and fatigue will step in without hesitation.
There are two directions you can move in and two only, towards what you desire or away and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell what direction you're headed in.
If it makes you feel uncomfortable and unhappy then it's time for a reevaluation and you should look into doing that now to the best of your abilities. You may feel uncomfortable because what you're doing is intense but if you can't imagine your life without it (in a healthy way my friends) then it sounds like you're on the money. I'm sure you'll be able to discern between the two. 

For me, what I am doing is exactly what I want as it works hand in hand with my goals and what I wish to achieve and I'm genuinely interested in what this course has to offer. I do however find it a taxing as it is mentally demanding but the doors this will open for me are far greater than any small amounts of discomfort I feel right now. Eyes on the prize baby.

There is a big difference between being fed up with what you're being served and being fed up with the bi-products that come voluntarily. For me, my irascibility and vexation stems from the later, creating the bain marie of my loiyyfe. After my initial scheduled Friday flat spin and rant at my Mother (thanks Ma) I come back around pretty quickly to acknowledging that this is part of the process and even though I'll accept all of it I won't let it dictate my thoughts or feelings.
'Is this really irritating me or is the people/places/work load etc?'

Fatigue is a clear signal that you are running low in all accounts, you're participating in a lifestyle that is no longer working for you and after all this time of not looking after yourself your body and mind don't want to try to keep up anymore. This is not a bad thing rather a calling for change. It's time to release the expectations you or others have so very graciously placed upon you and start living your life the way that it pleases you.

Love, Delilah

The Start Of The Rest Of My Life

Welcome to my first ever post on my new blog The Resplendent Lioness!I have been working on many aspects of this blog for over the past week but to finally sit down and write my first is a very lovely feeling.
Only just recently have I recognised that as long as I can write I am deeply satisfied. I still crave intensely many MANY wonders, writing just gives my experience a sense of purpose that other loves just don't. The best way I can describe it is as if  I am the whole universe, writing is the sun, and my many other joys are planets and stars. All are important and make up the whole universe, this is key. Stars and new planets can be discovered but there is only one sun.  The complete source of warmth, bringing light to every part of me.
My desires to venture into the blogging world have only come about recently and suddenly but I believe in divine timing and this could not have entered my life at a more excellent time. I asked for a summer romance and I got handed a blog. My oh…

18 Life Changing Lessons I Learnt In 2018

Here we are again, the end of a book and this time it so happens to be the novel that was 2018. A lot occurred in the past 12 chapters and 365 pages and for all I find peace with and am grateful.
Moments have been filled with pleasure, some with agony, some with sadness, elation, shock, glee, gloom, mild insanity, only to name a few otherwise we'll be here for the whole of 2019 if I try to list all the adjectives I've felt recently. I actually really enjoy watching the pendulum swing every which way asking you ever so politely with a kick up the butt to keep and never stop progressing. So to sum it up my year was filled with a lot of butt kicking.
I used to HATE the thought of new years eve and even birthdays so much that I'd get emotionally and physically distressed about them. It meant that the clock kept ticking and chapters kept ending, a concept my little eleven year old self didn't want to have to accept. Ever. It's only been this year that I've embraced th…

The 10 Albums That Transcended In 2018

Albums and EPs that I listened to non-stop in 2018 and you should listen to too!My favourite 10 releases in 2018 that features artists you will immediately fall in love with.

I spend a decent amount of my time admiring the artistic expression of music. It is something that I hold very close and very, very dear to my heart. Along with writing, music brings the most indescribable and monumental feelings of pure elation and raw electricity.
My favourite genre of music is the kind that leaves me feeling like I just saw through space and time in the matter of minutes and now I know every secret to the universe... so basically I'll go for anything that makes me feel like I'm high.

2018 was a year of some spectacular breakthroughs in music from new artists entering the scene or familiar faces re-inventing what they have to offer. Now, more then ever you're bound to find someone somewhere on the globe making something to cater to your very specific likes. I can't guarantee you…
