A version of this came across my Facebook feed and it hit a note inside of me that really needed to read it. I wanted to reference the right source when I shared it, and TinyBuddha.com was the first website that popped up for the quote. Quite honestly, the website is amazing. I got caught up reading a ton of stuff there. I’ve never fully converted to being Buddhist, but there’s a lot of wisdom in Buddhism.
Check out the website for some great mental health resources.
I loved that article so much. Self-Care is really important and sometimes you just don’t really even consider putting it into those two categories. It’s a really good read. Honestly, I wish I was a better writer. I wish I could piece together my thoughts enough to write blog posts like that each day. Or even one that is good once a week. Some part of me is thinking of cutting down how many times I make a blog post.
Right now, I’m trying extremely hard to write every day. Just to prove to myself that I can do it. It’s not always the best material, but it’s still something that I can accomplish. Including this post, I should have 320 posts down. 45 more days until it’s been a full year of doing this! Maybe after I’ve done it every day for a year, I’ll be satisfied enough to start doing it once a week. Or maybe not?
I’ve definitely enjoyed being able to do this each day. Some days I can write more than others and I can prepare a post for a day I’m not mentally stable enough to do it. It’s sort of nice having this kind of cope ahead. I’m actually subscribed to The Might’s mental health mailing list, so I’ve gotten some really nice articles about mental health this month. The one below has a great music list:
As we proceed through Mental Health Awareness Month, I’m trying to be aware of my own mental health and how it reacts to others as well as how it affects others. I have a lot of things going on right now, but I’m trying to not add any burden to others. While still reminding myself that I am NOT a burden.
Just remember the letter at the top of the post. “You can do it.” Thanks for stopping by today, guys!
