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 😉
