Dig Deep Into Your Wounds With Big Medicine

Hello sweetlings. I have been having a very rough time of it lately and it is drudging up all sorts of feelings of inadequacy, unworthiness, and just general depression. Sometimes you need to feel sad and hurt. I know this, I believe this. Yet, sometimes those emotions grab you and pull you under until you can’t breathe, until you are seconds away from drowning. When it reaches that point you have to loosen your grip a little. You have to start letting the pain go. I have spent the last three days crying and beating myself up and holding on so hard to self-loathing, hurt, and fear. “You’re all alone. Of course, no one loves you. You’ve never been put first and never will be. If you can’t earn anyone’s love then how broken must you be? If you were smarter, if you had gone to college, if you had…

Self-Care: Massage and Connecting With Your Body

Good morning, Sweets! Here in Oklahoma, the weather is chilly, perfect for snuggling under blankets and I’ve been doing that a lot. It’s my own personal Heaven. I hope that you are enjoying the changing of the seasons wherever you are! (p.s. This post contains an affiliate link, so if you purchase it, I get a small percentage! Thank you!) It’s Self Care Sunday! Today I am going to talk about massages and how much I love them! My first professional massage was about six months ago and I was so scared and nervous about laying on a table, nearly naked, with a stranger massaging my body. It was surprisingly delightful. At least it wasn’t for me. Which is saying something because I suffer from anxiety. Being around people I don’t know, and in new situations, has the potential to freak me out pretty badly. However, this blog post isn’t about…

So, I Went On A Date Yesterday (It was awesome)

Yesterday, I had a very special date day with myself and it was just what I needed. It’s been awhile since I blogged. Things have been pretty difficult for me lately. I’ve been so stressed out trying to get “life” in order. I haven’t had the will to do very much except try to keep my head above water and not drown from the stress and anxiety of it all. I’ve been so focused on ‘fixing’ everything that was wrong that everything that was ‘right’ was neglected and before I knew it my life looked like a disaster zone. My friendships aren’t where I’d like them to be, my apartment is a mess, I’ve been a bundle of panic and stomach aches, I’ve had nightmares, and all-in-all I’ve just been pretty miserable.
