Inspirational Chores ✨Line drying takes me back to hanging clothes with my grandma, playing on her clothesline stand like it was my ship sailing away. The smell of clean fresh line dried sheets is next level bliss if you ask me. I swear you can huff the sunshine right out of a freshly hung quilt 😌I think I'll make that a "thing" lol... who wants to huff sunshine off clean cotton sun soaked quilts with me?! Haha🤣 My mom had a wringer washer that we would set up outside, it was the so neat, for some reason I like to do chores the old ways. I went this entire last year without a vacuum haha, not because I couldn't go buy one, but because there is something special about the movements of sweeping & doing it that way?! I'm stubborn with so many weird things haha. My beautiful mother made this quilt for me a few yrs ago, she hand stitched it and filled it with love. My mom & I are not always the best communicators & in this life we have had our challenges as a mother daughter team. Sometimes when I'm sad that our relationship isn't exactly what I want it to be, or I'm feeling the aches of all my motherhood wounds... I cuddle this quilt, looking at the stitches & they speak her words for her. The effort, the time, the heart, the worrying, the guilt, the pain, the heartbreak, the love, the joy, the I love you's .... they all speak to me the words and feelings I need to hear & she needed to say. Stitched into a blanket of love, I know that when she heals I heal, and when I heal she heals. I really believe that energy goes into everything we make. Recharging the love in this quilt with the suns energy as well as the moons. I left it out all night to soak up all that magic ✨ Cheers to healing a little more every single day 🦋 .
Каждый камень древней Будвы является свидетелем исторических легенд, а каждый взгляд на этот камень пробуждает воспоминания о событиях 2500-летней давности. .
Эти камни отражают историю, в которой чередовались благополучные и тяжелые времена, чума и войны, город помнит греков и римлян, славян и сарацин, турок и венецианцев, австро-венгров и французов. .
Ну пусть они запомнят и меня. Ведь я плохого ничего не сделаю,а только оставлю частичку своего сердца в нем.
Yesterday, I took a mental health day. I don't often talk about what it's like to manage depression and anxiety but part of defeating the stigma surrounding mental health is breaking the silence.
I was driving to work and knew that it was just one of those days in order to maintain a healthy mindset, I needed to call off.
All of the taunting thoughts started of how I should've just powered through it and I couldn't tell anyone because it was embarrassing at how weak my mind was.
I texted my boyfriend and told him I understood if he was disappointed and his response was perfect.
"Why would I ever be disappointed? You are taking control of your health and handling it. You are self-aware enough to know when you need a day to recover. That's awesome." And he said a few other things along those lines which gave me the freedom to cry out all of my bottled up emotions.
Knowing your triggers is so important. For me, it's when my period is about to start, lack of sleep, constant people engagement and being on the go, bad diet and lack of exercise and forgoing my time alone with God.
All of which is a happening right now.
So my beautiful blessing of a boyfriend took me out for Thai food and let me cry and be in a crap mood and loved me through it. And then I went home and slept for 12 hours (which I rarely do). Having a loved one respond in such an empathetic loving way is the most powerful thing for someone who deals with mental health issues. Be that person in someone's life today. Be a rainbow in someone's cloud. .
