I've had a rough beginning of the week, so much so that I've been chasing away anxiety and worries, my imaginary broom sweeping thoughts here and there, under the rug, tucked away but still there. Each day dawns and I feel a little better, a work in progress. I believe we will have a cold front this weekend and that just puts a smile on my heart! Wearing some woolens would make any day a fabulous one.
I'm loving my maples who have decided to do a leaf dump all at once, so so so beautiful! They are vying for the attention over the mighty oaks. I love the oaks as well in their brown showy-offness. It's like loving all your children but in different ways.
What do you do when you need a little self care? Here's my list:
-be kind to yourself
-soak in the kindness of others, kind thoughts, their loving actions
-get busy! I've been knitting furiously and making some progress with my knitting
-rely on comfort food, mashed potatoes and baked chicken are on the menu today, yum yum yum
-pet your animal if you have one. Frodo is the best medicine
-deep breaths, some meditation, a walk outside
-pray (a lot!)
-keeping a gratitude list- focusing on the positive!
May you all have a wonderful weekend :)
