Happy (Beautiful) Monday!
This weather has me a bit anxious and a bit excited. So many wonderful upcoming things, yet so much A-N-X-I-E-T-Y. I am NOT good with change. I like my routine. When it changes, I get anxious, irritable and restless. Ever feel like you are just jumping and crawling out of your skin? That feeling has been me recently 😦
So my goal is to turn those restless, creepy , crawly feelings into something positive.
How? Good question.
I am NOT great at relaxing. In fact, I dread it. It causes me discomfort. Yet I realize I need to relax, So how do I go about it? Well, I have tried the lounging around,
reading, watching a movie routine and it only leaves me MORE restless. So I am learning a LOT about myself and realize that relaxing for me is……….a drive in the car, a walk and an audiobook, a run to Target , yoga, talking at a coffee shop…..I need some type of motion to relax. So I am compiling a list of some ways I may be able to:
So pretty, so me! (the color just radiates relaxing!)
I can NO longer conform to what society’s “idea” of relaxation looks like. What works for you may NOT work for me! EveryBODY is different!
Some other things I am learning about me…..I really do NOT like shopping. Especially with others. It is NOT relaxing AT ALL. I feel restless and the way I enjoy shopping? Getting in and getting OUT. Occasionally I’ll enjoy a nice Starbucks and strolling the clearance aisles of Target 🙂 I am not into the latest fashions. I want to be comfortable and casual and shop WHEN I NEED SOMETHING 🙂 I feel like I am becoming more and more of a minimalist.
I want to be me. I want to accept who I am, even if it is someone different from who I thought I was. I want to stand my ground. I want to speak my mind. I want to focus on me and not care what anyone else thinks or believes about me.
