Another Grey Monday

Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Monday

When a day is an annoyance like this grey Monday I try to do something nice for myself or even better for others. Being bold is smiling on a grey Monday! I have to admit my mind is blank and bleak as the sky outside.
I am not even quite sure where this blog will go today.

Being bold is smiling on a grey Monday!

The only thing on my mind today is chores – all the things I should be doing and I keep putting off. The friend I spoke to has the same problem, her free day gets devoured by all the to-dos, unlike her, I have the luxury that I can ignore most of them until a later date. What is better? Getting things done or pushing them out?

I used to believe first work and then pleasure but since I had my depression my perspective has shifted slightly. Since I am better I have gone back to doing things rather now, but if it is too much effort I will just let it go. I believe this is the healthier option than the all or nothing approach that I used to proclaim. It was a mad drill. I have learnt to be nicer to myself and cut myself some slack. I believe we all should do that. Most of us are far too hard on ourselves. I used to believe that that sentence showed weakness, whereas it actually shows self-love.

For staying healthy mentally we should accept that we are not always the same capable, embrace the moments we are and cut us some slack when we are not.

I am cutting my blank mind some slack today. Excepting the fact that 5 hours might not be enough sleep for a literary high flying piece. Plus there is a lovely distraction that is keeping my focus and clouding my mind.

Being bold by being minimalistic 😉

#mentalhealthambassador All the ruminations on this page belong to moi. I am not a certified psychologist or psychiatrist. It is not my intention to force my opinions, ideals, ideas upon you or tell you what to do. This page was created to inspire you, enforce you and hopefully guide you. I am a on a quest to self-fullfillment for a happy, healthy, sporty and adventurous life. By being curious and open-minded I encounter myself, others and the world that sorrounds me in ever changing ways that inspire me. I would like to help reduce the stigma still clinging to mental health. The vessel I choose to transport my message is this blog. This Blog is love and a lot of soul. It is a journey through my realm. A soul striptease. My focus lies on a healthy lifestyle and the awareness movement. To see the change be the change!
