Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not, well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. Well, not had the best start to the year. Finding out my eye condition has got worse and having to be put on some pretty strong medication that has some not so great side effects, is yeah not how I thought this year would start. So these last few days I have not left my sofa and just been relaxing as much as I but also not let this completely take over my life and carry on with my goals. Its been a hard balance to find because I feel it is very easy for me to slide down a slippery slope into depression and fuck will I let that happen without a fight.
Today I made a start on the new changes that will be coming to crazy little things which definitely helped elevate my mood because I am so excited for the direction I want to go in and I think it will be a welcomed distraction from the shitty things going on. Now hopefully the first lot of the changes will be starting next week and I hope you will enjoy!
So today’s tip of the day is –
You are not just your problems…
When it feels like it is constantly raining on you it is so easy to then feel like you are destined to live under a cloud, you get used to damp clothes and squelching shoes, but if only you put up that umbrella what a difference it would be and even better, what if we danced in the rain?
It is so easy to feel completely absorbed by your problems and feel like every part of you is a made up from them. Those problems though do not make who we are though and when we recognize that we are putting up that umbrella and when we face our problems we are dancing in the rain.
Problems can be tricky but they are not dead ends and there are many paths to take to solve a problem, it is what suits you and your needs. The sooner we face problems the smaller it becomes and the better it can make us feel, yes it probably won’t be straight away but we have to try and not be drowned out by the rain.
Take care all,
