I really hate pity party blog posts. I won't read them on other's blogs and I try my darnest not to write them here. There is a definite difference though in a pity party post and a frustrated by the feelings post. I think my post yesterday was very much the second of those two.
There was a statement punched out in the latest issue of Artful Blogging that stuck with me. Angie Broen of decodreamscometrue.blogspot.com said "Since my blog posts are a reflection of my life, my words and thinking are honest, which makes writing a new post come fairly easily." I think it struck me and stuck with me because the past couple of weeks my posts weren't coming from a place of personal honesty, so I was struggling to know what to write. Yesterday, I just started writing from the heart and boom it was there.
What a difference a day can make...
Talking helps, it really does.
As does being in a comforting space of creativity and feeling at home. As does a couple of raspberry chai lattes in a sunny window of a starry cafe with a caring friend with a kind ear. As does getting a few loads of laundry folded in the blink of an eye while on the phone with someone that cares. As does a quite evening with a little voice reading her favorite poems while stitching special holiday somethings.
I feel worlds better today. I feel lighter and more peaceful.
Today is a bright and shining one.
