Yesterday I spent the day reading and journaling, painting and swimming. It sounds like a perfect day, joyous and free, but, in reality, I was feeling so blue. There was no obvious reason, or at least none with which my conscious mind could connect. All day I sat with my feelings, judging them at first, but then realizing it was just my body’s way of tell me what I needed. So I sat and I listened.
Life is all an ebb and flow. We all experience the highs and the lows, no matter what we see on this highlight reel. I live in one of the most energetic, connected places I’ve ever been and I STILL have sad moments. I don’t want to portray this perfect life. The real beauty of life often comes from appreciating these moments; no rain=no rainbows.
Yesterday was exactly what I needed it to be. Grounding and tuning into me and what I need.
I’m grateful to feel so deeply, to see the connections. Please don’t judge yourself in these moments. We need them! They can be our teachers if we let them.
Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.
I’m so grateful to be right where I am, in every moment, each day connecting me to all of who I am.
Swipe to see me as a fish, dealing with my feelings.
