A friend pinned this on Pinterest today:
I love lists. That's all there is to it.
I particularly love this list because:
a) it makes me feel like its ok to be sad once in a while
b) it mixes activities that fall into the categories of "feel better" and "wallow a little"
I've mentioned in recent posts that life has been a little messy lately.
Have you ever missed having someone in your life in a way that makes you feel heavy?
It's the kind of heavy where it's fairly easy to put on a smile and go on living, but in the moments when you're alone or driving or getting ready for your day, you find yourself wishing you'd share what you're doing that day with them, even if it's nothing special, and you get that familiar pang somewhere deep in your chest because you know that's not going to happen.
It's really not my style, and I'm not sure what to do about it
but press on and trust that it will eventually go away.
Oh, and make and read lists that make me feel that its ok to be a little sad.
