I’ve been sitting in an emotional hangover. you know, that stream line of days where the sadness just lingers? this is where self awareness is important to me. the books i’ve read, the time i take to get outside, to be alone, writing, practicing yoga and meditation, it all compounds you see... to keep my mind slate as clear as possible for when things hit. now it feels full, but at least i can spread out these few disruptions in my mind and emotions, look at them clearly and dissect them. if you don’t take time to check in with yourself and filter daily, when days like these hit, you’re not just dealing with the trigger... a series of disturbances from your past start to flood in. making the hangover last for weeks, months and maybe years.
todays the start of a new season, summer. yesterday i took the time to sit in my spot, and if im being honest, i didn’t want to. i wanted to binge watch f.r.i.e.n.d.s., knowing it would make me laugh. however, i’d be waking up in a new season, with last seasons emotional drag. so i did what was right for me and out came a poem i call, ‘pour out the poison’. happy first day of summer... and maybe the first day of creating some personal shifts, that change the course of the rest of your life ☀️💫📖 #summer #personaldevelopment #mindset #motivation #youvsyou #poem #write #read #awareness #change #grow #breath #relax #taketime
