Yeah, the one no one wants to speak about!!! There is nothing wrong with struggling. We all do. However, few speak of it or even dare to reveal it. Today I took a rest day again. Not bc physically I needed it (although my IH pain last night sky rocketed) but bc I need a mental break. If you think I post everything online your assumptions are off base. I maybe post 10% if that, as if I need to prove anything. Anyway, it seems everywhere you look everyone is polished or having a perfect life. Those are illusions. Granted some ppl may seem to have a perfect life but we have all struggled and there should be no shame in being raw and real. Being in pain is mentally draining to say the least and any other issue just piles on. Its important sometimes to show your struggle simply bc your pain may help another's. People are out there suffering and need to know it's okay and that other people experience those things too. Its okay to seek help if you need to and its okay to take medicine if it helps you. What good are we if we pretend we are sims characters. Heck even sims characters burn their house or ppl. Probably a bad comparison but you get my drift. Times can be dark and it may seem you are alone but you are never alone. People often seem to suffer in silence which I'm not judging but make sure you are not bottling it up or shoving it aside or "manning" it out. Sometimes you just gotta sit with it and feel it to get past that moment. Don't be too hard on yourself. Things take time and patience. Don't let anyone tell you that you should be over it or it wasn't that bad. They did not live it in your body and don't have to go to sleep with your thoughts in their head. Take all the time you need. Sometimes its not about getting over it but simply getting it at a tolerable level. Everyone has these ideas of how things should be and its killing us...Let things be as they are. We only are here for a short time so we should be kinder to the thought of just living and not obsessed with the thought of living to someone else's standard or societal expectations. You can only control you and your actions so that is indefenitlty all that matters. The world needs your uniqueness!
My love took me to a Mongolian meditation yurt as a belated Valentine and the experience has left me so full. It reminded me that it’s OK to move slowly so long as you’re on the right path. It was the perfect time of year for these reflections and for where I’m at right now, sometimes feeling stuck or like I haven’t achieved enough. The waterfall on the land had been frozen, but broke the day we arrived. I think it’s building soundscape was a reminder to gather energy in stillness and to trust that when the time is right and forces greater than us allow, the most powerful beauty will flow forward. #slowandsteady #turtlepower
