Happy Saturday morning friends! I hope all of your weekend plans look lovelier and more exciting than mine.
I just wanted to write another quick post about my emotions. (Yep. Another one.)
As I said in one of my recent MindBodyGreen articles (http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-4379/3-Ways-to-Experience-More-Bliss.html), I experience happiness in random, tiny intervals. For me, happiness just kind of comes and goes as it pleases.
I wrote in my journal the other night that nurturing my emotions was a lot of work. It is. Sometimes I feel like I'm physically, mentally, and emotionally trudging through quick sand. But I trudge on because I am a trooper at heart. I think we all are whether we realize it or not.
I've never turned to drugs, alcohol, or self-harm as a way of dealing with my feelings. Writing has always given me that outlet---which is why I have decided to start keeping a mood journal.
Every day, four times a day, I am going to write down my mood and the thought or reason behind it so I can keep track of my emotional nature and hopefully understand myself a little better.
And if my results suggest that I might need some help, then I will try to work up the courage to get the help I need. (Now that I mention it, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if I found out I was bipolar or something.)
We all need a healthy way to express ourselves and sort out our overwhelmingly massive amount of thoughts and feelings.
What will YOU do to sort out your feelings?
p.s. I will be making some changes to this blog pretty soon---adding more features, playing around with the layout and design, etc. I just want to make it look really official and amazeballs. I'm not sure when I will start making these changes (I'm the biggest procrastinator on the planet), but in the meantime, given the fact that I am a bit technology deficient and creatively indecisive, I am open to suggestions. What would you like to see on my blog? Do you have any blogging related tips for me? Anything you think I should improve upon or do differently?
Feel free to share your thoughts if you have any! :-)
