Okay...I'm up. It's Monday. It's the start of the new week. Now, does that mean...however I start this week is the way the week is going to go? I don't care for that view. Honestly I don't think there is a start to anything. Life seems pretty fluid. It's moving forward even when we feel we are moving backward because of a mood or situation. Life just continues. Those trees you see, the flowers out there...plants and weeds...look at them. They aren't stopping because of me and my moods. Just because I'm in a funk - they will keep going. There is some comfort in that. Life is moving - forward.
So if life is moving - then I'm moving. I'm moving forward even when in a funk. Now my job is to not let the funk grow any bigger than it needs to before grabbing it by the shirt tails and saying, "All right, what's up?"
I woke up in a bit of a funk this morning. Blech. The good news was I got up. I didn't let the funk pull me down. I got up, folded the blankets, did my self care and morning stretch routine and got out for a walk. I even did a podcast. I shared my feelings.
It actually felt good to just talk about it. I've been in my head for the last week. So just expressing it and realizing it's OK, I'll work through it, and I'm doing something about it - made me feel a little bit better.
I am still working on my drawing project. I'm quite impressed that I'm sticking with it. I even added a little extra to the project. After every drawing, I make a copy , and then color it in - keeping the original as is - but adding some flair and pizzazz to the copy. It's been really fun. I included the latest picture, here, in this blog. The project was I drew a corner of a room in my house.
I'm still posting videos on Instagram.
I also am working on getting Mental Girl book 2 out on paperback. You can get a copy of Mental Girl book 1 on paperback. Either go to my books up at the top and click the link. Or go to Amazon and type in Mental Girl Rebecca Schlaeger - and...voila!
I haven't made a lot on these books. I'll admit it stings a little. I was hoping to be instant famous. But you know what? The reaction and feedback I've received so far has been a gift.
All right - so onward!
Hello Monday! You got me by the balls a little this morning. Okay, that was a bit crass. I'm just pulling on my sassy and silly pants. But still - I had a lot of feelings this morning. I'm feeling stuff. I'm thinking stuff. What would I like to commit to? Do I want to commit to picking on myself and convincing myself that I'm a failure? Hell no! Do I want to commit to continuing to work on myself and be self aware and moving forward and doing this life stuff to the best of my ability? Hell yes!
Be good to you.
Practice self care.
It's OK to feel.
YOU are not alone.
Thanks for being here.
Thanks for your support.
Glad you are here.
