Hope everyone is feeling ok and if you not, well that is ok too as your only human. I don’t know what I dislike more; Sunday evenings or Monday mornings, I know I say this every week but I am really not ready for Monday. Even though I feel the storm is passing and I can feel the sun shining through the last remaining clouds, something is not quite right. You know that feeling where you think you are ok but you are not so convinced, it’s like finishing a jigsaw and realizing that there is a piece missing.
Did the storm blow away a piece of me?
Was this piece missing before the storm?
Or is the piece just misplaced?
Where is my mojo?
Many people can assume when a low or manic cycle is over we are dancing on cloud nine but that is not always the case. You just can’t go from feeling empty or hyper to the joys of spring, it is not a switch we can control.
Tip of the day – Getting your mojo back!
Even though people with bipolar or any other mental illness can learn to live with these conditions, it doesn’t make us an expert on them. After a bad spout with my mental health, it can take me a while to recover from it, my mojo goes missing and without the proper self-care it can easily head me back in the direction I have just come from instead of forward.
So when things settle with your mind after a bad turn, be gentle with yourself don’t rush ahead like a headless chicken because if you are not careful you can end up going back to that place you don’t want to be.
So the storm is over but the battle can still be ongoing don’t forget that you still probably need as much self-care or help as you did before. Also, don’t forget to celebrate that victory!
• Get yourself the book you wanted
• Make plans with some friends
• Just do something that makes you happy
Take care all
