I’m not sure what I’m waiting for, but I’m waiting!

I sometimes feel a pang of relief when the few plans that I have get cancelled. I feel a bit guilty about that, like there is an expectation now that I should feel grateful for the opportunities that we have and I must pack my diary to the brim with events and occasions. As an extroverted introvert, I’ve often battled with wanting plans and wanting to cancel plans. I think lockdowns and restrictions took the pressure off this for those like me!

Sometimes it’s as if I’m trying to justify my existence in this world, to at least not feel guilty for existing

To convince myself that I am at least good at something, I must be good at something. And that it’s okay to be mediocre, it’s okay to not be outstanding. That I don’t need to be that one person people remember when they are thinking about something, for example talk show, perhaps people will immediately think about Oprah, or Ellen. Something like that.

I have serious anxiety when I find myself in sexual situations, and anything negative that I experience during this time will cause me to unconsciously repress any sexual desire I feel for that person unless it is addressed

I want to move forward, keep trying, face rejection, if need be, speak up whenever I have a serious problem such as this one and never settle for something that is pitifully lacking compared to what I had in mind.

I’ve got time to savor it

Keywords: at home , garden , savor , summer

In years past, once spring began, I was impatient for summer. I felt it would never arrive. The little sprouts of green in March excited me when they first appeared, but they weren’t enough. I wanted the full floral bloom of July. I wanted petals and blossoms and flower spikes. I wanted blazing stars, daisies, mikweeds, zinnias. I wanted heat and butterflies. I wanted it to be June in April.

Sometimes I ask that same question and wonder why life couldn’t have gone differently… couldn’t have been a bit smoother

As someone with a sleep disorder and a mood disorder I relate to the need for a nap and a snack to calm me down most of the time. Haha! So out of this simple Bible story and my own life story Nap and a Snack was born.

I want to be the reason someone smiles ALL THE TIME!!!

I just wanna be happy and I can’t be happy with anyone. I have to be happy with myself first, but it’s soooo difficult because then I just get triggered randomly. I can be doing just fine and be happy and you blink and I’m ripping your head off. I don’t want to do that. Sometimes I feel like a different person, but I’m not a schizophrenic. BPD maybe? Bipolar? Either way, mental disorders are not only hard on everyone but it’s more hard on the person who IS going through it because they can’t control themselves.

When I talk about how if you are not happy then leave, I would like to clarify that you are responsible for your own happiness

if the relationship is making you miserable and is unhealthy, stop choosing misery and leave.

When you actually stop and take the time to analyze how you’re feeling and what’s actually beneath it, you can learn a lot

You’ve likely heard about the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression and grief. Grief isn’t as neat and tidy as all that, but these steps do give a bit of a picture of the complexity of grief. Knowing all of this, I was still pretty surprised last night when I realized I’m living in some anger.

I feel like a lot of people who have been around me and never encouraged me to be better wanted me to be in this low ass place. And I feel so discouraged by how no one really expressed or saw my potential or told me I was fucking up and doing a disservice to myself. I think I have a lot of potential. I think my capabilities are so beyond where I am. But everyone just let me be .. static.

Since I’m sitting and not doing as much I am noticing my mood

Keywords: anxiety , gardening , life hacks , mental health , self care

I’ve had such a nice time clearing out the gardening and making my patio nice with pot plants. I haven’t had a second to think of anything negative and I haven’t had any anxiety because of this business. It’s been really nice. They say that spring cleaning in the house is a good way to create a space in your mind and well for me the garden has been the same. A mixture of the sun, fresh air and clearing up has almost been therapy for me. Plus the added time spent with my daughter blowing bubbles brought my inner child out which was really lovely.
