Hey loves! How have you been? I hope you’ve been safe, happy, content and securing the bag. I’m back, yet again, hoping to stop being that toxic partner who just ghosts you with no warning. Oh, speaking of which, I have temporarily cancelled my website subscription. However, you’ll still get to access all the content but on a different domain name until I’m consistent enough to earn a renewed subscription.
I’m finally feeling a lot more like myself today after weeks of feeling a little..glitchy. I had a pretty productive day, had a great therapy session, I said no to wanting things that I know aren’t meant for me, drunk a whole litre of water, listened to my screen time notification when it told me that my social time was up and I even got the chance to mask. All this may sound very usual to you but after not feeling like myself for a while, it sure feels great to be back! 🙂
Working happens to be one of the things that bring me satisfaction, even when my personal life is a mess. But lately, work has been a huge stressor for me and I brushed it off thinking it was just a case of having so much to do and so little time, you know? Well, this was until I received an email from my therapist with results from a mental health screening I had done that showed symptoms of 3 illnesses. My body was shouting to be heard through frequent migraines, random body aches and constant bouts of anxiety but I was ‘too busy’ to listen.
So I’m learning to slow down a little and listen to what my body needs. I’ve also started allocating at least an hour of my day to myself to do something I enjoy. It could be 20 minutes of yoga, 15 minutes of masking while I read a book and 25 minutes of a YouTube video. Or it could be sleeping early so that I’m well rested and fresh for the next day. Or it could be watching an entire movie for 2 hours.
If you’ve also been feeling glitchy, please allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling, give yourself lots of grace and do something that brings you joy every single day, no matter how small it is. You’ll be just fine sweetie! 🙂
