One of Those Moments

Have you ever had one of those moments where it feels like the walls are caving in? Like everything is crashing down on you and you just can't seem to make your way out...

I had one of those moments today. It's been brewing for a while. I've been putting it out of my mind. Pushing it under the surface. Focusing on work. Growing increasingly more stressed. You see, I'm a perfectionist. 100% type A, all or nothing person, who has a terrible time disconnecting, and an even more terrible time dealing with weakness.

Today, I couldn't bottle it up any longer. Everything came crashing down on me and in my moment of weakness, I found strength. Strength in knowing that it's ok to have these moments. It's real and it's raw. It's empowering to grow from these moments. So I did something for myself. I took a personal day. A day to stay home in my pajamas, work on myself, daydream and list the things I love about this life. In my time of reflection, I realized there's more to my life than being a workaholic, a perfectionist, and someone who cares entirely too much about what others think. I have hobbies and dreams, and so many things I'm passionate about.

One of those things is writing. I love to write. There's something about a blank canvas that helps me clear my mind. So today I decided to dust the cobwebs from this blog and come back to what I love. No posting schedules, no forced prompts, no sharing on social media platforms that I can't stand.

The list of things I love looks something like this:

~ Writing
~ Spending time in my kitchen
~ Trying new restaurants
~ Dating my Hubby
~ Researching the world of health and wellness
~ Yoga
~ Seeing the ocean
~ Lighting candles
~ Taking time to myself

That's exactly what I'll be sharing on this blog. On this space that is my creative outlet. This space that I love.

I'll ask you again if you've ever had one of those moments. If you have, know that it's ok. It's ok to let it all out. Have that ugly cry. Allow it to lead you to what's really important, what really matters, and what you love.

Make your list. Adjust accordingly. This is living a healthy fabulous life.
