(As I drive around, I see the forsythia is in all it’s yellow glory. Spring is here. Also allergies are here. And Zyrtec is here too. The Zyrtec is helping, but I still feel like I’m in a fog. So a fog-induced post is what I shall write.)
What goes on inside of you is just as important as what everyone sees happening on your outsides.
We live in a world that values outsides, rather than insides.
Perhaps we’re getting better at looking at our insides, but we’re very new at this so we kinda don’t know what we’re doing.
We’re wicked good at the outside stuff though.
The doing and achieving and making things look real nice.
But a lot of the time, we get good at all that outside stuff at the expense of our insides.
And then, when we do start looking at our insides, it’s scary and overwhelming and we let the insides take over and run the show.
But really, sometimes we just need to say to ourselves, Hey, my dear, amazing and cool friend, you’re sad. I see that you’re sad. It’s tough to be human and feel sad, isn’t it? (or mad or confused or frustrated or any feeling you might feel)
And then it’s like our insides say, Hey, you’re right. Thanks for noticing. I am sad. It’s hard. But I can handle it.
And our insides remember how strong and capable they are.
And they remember they’ve been sad before and survived.
And they remember how every other human feels sad sometimes too.
And they remember they are loved just by being, just as they are.
You are loved just as you are, inside and out.
But especially inside.
Thanks for reading today’s entry in my daily blog. My goal here is to practice noticing. I try to write about small things and I try to keep it light. Sometimes I write about creativity or healing. And sometimes I write about my dogs or what I cooked for dinner. Writing daily here is a way for me to shine a light back on my life and help me see.
