Sunday Thoughts 104
Updated: May 17, 2022
Do Sunday Thoughts still count as Sunday Thoughts if they are not posted... on a Sunday?
Well, this is my safe corner if the internet so I am going to say yes!
Part of me wants to apologize for this being late but also part of me doesn't care. If I want it to be a Sunday in a Friday then fight me! 😂
Anyway, I came across some lovely little realizations this week that I would love to share with you.
Being lonely is ok.
Being lonely does not mean that something is wrong with you.
Being lonely is only an open invitation from your heart.
So what has my heart invited me to do? Take care of myself, for one. Even though I've been bed-bound for a good chunk of recovery, I still didn't do enough to take care of myself. I was on my phone working 24/7, constantly stressing about keeping my budget up-to-date, calling so and so, making sure I did this and that. But what I was doing was actually just pushing myself further into a depressive hole of isolation. I've learned to relax and do a face mask every night. To do a foot soak every other day. To paint my nails because I like painting my nails and not because it's a part of my job. Loneliness has only been an eye-opener for me, to slow down.
And yes, to look forward to talking to people once again.
