The only thing that really gets me excited about August is that it’s one month closer to September, which is when Fall begins. Although, in the area where I live, the cooler weather doesn’t really settle in until the end of October.
I’ve been staying low key and keeping to myself the last few weeks and will probably continue to do so until the end of August. Maybe longer if it continues to suit my state of mind. Which is kinda all over the place….yep, still feeling that kaleidoscope of emotions but now instead of a dizzy spinning of loud florescent feeling, they are more of a muted flowing of pleasant hues.
In other words, I am not feeling crazy and volatile. I’m calm and accepting of what I feel and just allowing the emotions to flow through me as I process them. I am controlling them, giving them their time and place as needed but no longer letting them control me. I am feeling happy, positive and stress-free again. It’s about damn time. haha.
I’m just enjoying my life and learning not to worry about every little thing that goes wrong or doesn’t go the way I want it to. I’m spending more time connecting with the people who matter in my life and doing the little things that bring me joy.
I’ve also been working on writing a post about self-care because I think that is one of the most important factors in living a happy and healthy, well-balanced life.
My “self-care Sunday” consists of doing basically nothing today. A bubble bath and a nap. Haha.
The highlight of my day so far has been re-potting my favorite cactus.
I may do some more writing today. I’ve gotten into the habit of just posting little thoughts and random things during the week and getting more in depth on the weekend. Last night’s post “the truth hurts” was the first time I’ve really felt that emotional and vulnerable in awhile. I blame it on PMS, Mercury Retrograde and just needing to have a good cry. Haha.
I’m really looking forward to the coming months. Especially when Fall gets here….my favorite time of the year.
My mind is calm, my heart is full and my vibe is high. Bring it on, life!
