I’ve been having a mental health day today. I am at my parents house, and I did absolutely nothing today.
I got up late, 9 AM which is late for me. I slept really well last night, I always do though when I am at my parents. Well mostly I do.
I just relaxed, read a book, watched some tv, and chatted with my mom.
I ate leftovers for dinner, I had cooked a shepherds pie yesterday, a slimming world friendly one. I had leftovers of that today, and I have some which I’ll have during the week also.
I’m enjoying a coffee now, and catching up on blogs. Yay for a happy day. I love those.
Sometimes it’s important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it’s essential to take time off to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.
Believe in your heart that you’re meant to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles.
Roy T. Bennett
And while acknowledging the darkest and heaviest times we experience is important, we still need to spin the moment, paint it a different color, and transform it because positivity saves lives.
Most of us need to be reminded that we are good, that we are lovable, that we belong. If we knew just how powerfully our thoughts, words, and actions affected the hearts of those around us, we’d reach out and join hands again and again. Our relationships have the potential to be a sacred refuge, a place of healing and awakening. With each person we meet, we can learn to look behind the mask and see the one who longs to love and be loved.
Be the kind of person who isn’t afraid to ask someone if they are okay twice if they say they are but look like they aren’t. Be the kind of person who smiles at people even if they don’t smile back. Be the kind of person you wished for when no one was there for you. Be the kind of person who is brave enough to stand alone in a crowd for what is right. Be that person because we need more people like that in the world. Be that person because people like that are rarer than the rarest diamonds and gold.
Behind you, all your memories. Before you, all your dreams. Around you, all who love you. Within you, all you need.
