“Kindly remove your shoes from my bullshit.” – Jarod Kintz
Saturday, December 27th
Lately I’ve been a difficult person to be around. A combination of premenstrual syndrome, cabin fever, and a general lack of self-care adds up to not-so-nice. And I can explain my way around why I am justified to be this crabby or tired or achy, but at the end of the day I know that I’m letting myself get bunched up.
So I decided that when the kids were in bed that I would have a nice long bath. A therapeutic soak. I give thanks to water each and every day – something so seemingly inert is so utterly vital to our wellbeing. I laid down in the water and let go. Really let go. And my mind went where it needed to go as my body did.
