Hope everyone is feeling ok and if you’re not, well that is ok too as you’re only human. I am never going to doubt the power of crystals again, ever since I have kept the rose quartz crystal close to my heart the colour is slowly coming back into my grey world. I know it may seem crazy but I honestly do feel a bit more emotionally stable, I feel I can sort through the bullshit that seems to weigh heavy on my mind. I am back in the driver seat of my mind and it hasn’t ever felt so good to be back in control.
I will always stand by the power of self-care! If I didn’t start developing the healthy habits of taking care of myself from the small things like 5-minute tea break at work and writing down my victories of the day, then I don’t think I will be this far along this path of recovery. Even with the occasional setback, I am still further along than I thought I would ever me. By learning to do self-care and developing my accountability of how I am feeling and the situation around me, has saved me from letting the storm devour me at times. Acceptance can go a long way, whether it is accepting you are feeling low or accepting a helping hand it will stand you in good stead in the long run.
So my tip of the day is –
Don’t just find your voice find your ROAR!
Most of us can grief for who we used to be before the trauma or mental illness took over and created who we are now. We can lose our identity and our voices to a point that we don’t even recognize who we are now. I have wasted so much time trying to find that person again and I now know I need to accept that girl is gone and that voice is gone.
But that doesn’t mean that I can’t find a new voice! New is always scary especially with anxiety that fear of the unknown can fuck with your mind. That voice is out there ready for the taking whether you find it through therapy, writing, drawing or music, whatever makes you feel loved and acceptance from within. Your voice is in there waiting for you to ROAR!
Take care all,
