Keep Breathing

“Keep breathing. If you keep breathing, eventually something changes.” – Krishna Das. This quote popped up in my Facebook memories from a few years ago and even though I can’t remember why I posted it, it’s almost a sure thing that I was anxious. I’ve written about Krishna Das on the blog before and it’s mainly because I absolutely love his music. He has such a deep and soulful timbre to his voice. Listening to his music is honestly like wrapping myself in the warm blanket of his words. He’s also such a wise human with so many things to share. I’ve listened to a lot of his workshops and talks and there’s always so much wisdom there. I don’t always agree with everything he says and my world view is similar and also not, but there’s always something to take away from what he says. But that quote? “If…

11/7 Things I’m Grateful For

I’m going to make today’s blog post short and sweet, since it’s #ThankfulThursday, I want to say a few things that I’m grateful for! First and foremost would be my wife, Megan. She’s an amazing partner and an amazing person and she adds a brightness to my life that has been missing for an incredibly long time. Windy Rainy Weather I think when I looked at the thermostat it said it was 58 degrees in here and I absolutely love it. My windows are open and I’m curled up with a blanket, that’s where you can find me most days. This is Us. Ever since my last relationship I’ve been a bit emotionally constipated. I used to be an incredibly emotional person but that relationship shamed it out of me. So in real-life situations, the tears don’t come easily. Watching This is Us. for some reason, helps me feel comfortable…

Self Care: Unplug From Social Media

Hi, my name is Dominee, and I absolutely love social media and the internet but I also know how important it is to unplug. As someone who is super introverted, it’s the perfect way to make connections and not feel so alone in the world. That being said, it’s still good to unplug. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. I am guilty of checking Facebook and Instagram 80 billion times a day. I’m guilty of laying in bed and scrolling… scrolling…scrolling and suddenly it’s an hour past my bedtime. When it comes to social media, there is good and bad. This week, I’ve been focusing on stepping back just a little bit. I’m guilty of being glued to my phone. It’s not just social media for me, although that’s a big part of it. When I’m not on my computer I still have to…

My Self-Care Circle

Day five of NaBloPoMo, which means that it’s my goal to write one blog post every day this month and today we’re going to talk about my self-care circle. When I was talking about my self-care goals for the week, I said that one of my goals was to get good sleep on my days off without feeling guilty and I am happy to report back that not only did I go to sleep early, but I also slept until I woke up naturally. #SelfCareWin Self-Care isn’t always a linear journey. There will be times when you’re doing so good at taking care of yourself that you don’t even put any effort into it and other days when you’re so busy or stressed or distracted that it unintentionally gets pushed to the wayside. This week, I’m choosing intention. Intentionally focusing on self-care every day. So let’s talk about what self-care looks…
