My dear blog, oh how I miss writing you.
Recently, I’ve been too exhausted to be personally productive. This means I am not working on myself. Household chores are neglected, self-care isn’t touched, and exercising becomes a distant memory. I told my therapist how I haven’t been meditating or practicing any mindfulness. But, I wasn’t beating myself up. Sometimes you just have those weeks where work, life, and the world, in general, exhaust you. And, the only way to recoup is to lay on the couch with your dogs and binge Twin Peaks (then fall asleep with it on).
However, I did confess to my therapist that I missed one activity: writing. I have a million ideas running around in my brain but many unfinished, unpublished drafts sitting in my word bank. From informative blog posts to my cathartic short stories, I haven’t worked on any of them. Oddly, it feels like a part of myself is missing when I don’t write. I didn’t realize how much I relied on expressing myself.
Being thrown into the adult world is tiresome to say the least. I’m struggling to find balance between work and my life. If all I have is work, then I may have a problem. So, I am trying to set realistic goals for myself. This will reduce my stress and anxiety, which will allow me to be my best self. But, I will not beat myself up if I can’t meet all of my goals.
In terms of my blog, I have started revisiting and creating content. Here is what to look forward to:
What I Binged During Black History Month
An Open Letter to Meghan Markle
Changing the Perception of Public Defenders
My Mindfulness Journey
Moxie: Movie Review and Analysis
Reflections From My Past
I know some are untimely but I didn’t want these to be left behind. That’s all I have for now. Stay tuned!
