Good morning dearies. I want to welcome you all to yet another work week. I’m already up and at it, making plans and typing away but it’s been a rough one. I was tired this morning and not at all emotionally ready for the day. But I have my coffee and I have my ideas and I am trying to get my ass in gear.
This week want to make something. Writing is, and will forever be, my first love but art is a very close second. Lately, art has been telling me it is feeling very neglected. I fear art may leave me for good if I don’t start making it feel appreciated. I want to take a day or two this week to sit down with some pencils and pens and just doodle a bit. I want to remember what it feels like to create something.
I hope writing will understand.
This week I will also be working on showing more love. I am naturally a very loving person but the world is a harsh place and I feel myself becoming hard and cynical. I feel myself pulling away from the people I care about and that is just plain unacceptable. I don’t mean to it’s just that I feel a bit lonely in my struggles and so I push people away because I need to show my girl some love and my friends and family need it too. Hell, even my dog needs my attention.
I will remember, no (wo)man is an island. I need them and they need me.
This week I’m also gonna focus on breathing, relaxing, and drinking some good tea. I love my coffee, trust me I do, but there is something about tea that forces you to stop and enjoy the world around you. I love a good mint tea and a nice cup of matcha tastes like summer to me. I like it hot, cold, with milk or without, any way you have it tea is just plain good.
Coffee is for getting you moving, but tea is for slowing you down, and I definitely need to slow down a little.
I wish you all good luck in the upcoming week. If you have your own goals or habits you’d like to implement or change, let me know in the comments :)
