Here are some things I have learned in the past week.
- I dislike situations where I can’t find a solution, and I am not in control.
- I have friends that are incredible and won’t allow me to be silly and reclusive. Thanks guys.
- Break downs and a few good sessions of crying make for a whole lot of stress relief.
- It is okay to feel things. Showing emotion doesn’t make me a weak person, and I am not sure why I hold most everything in. I suppose it is my fear of confrontation and feeling petty and stupid if I let myself be emotional. Blurgh.
- I have insane mood swings around “my time of the month.” (Why I used quotations? No reason)
- I really need to take a step back from stalking people online—which means I really need to take a step back from Facebook. (Good thing wordpress posts this bad boy on there without me having to sign on.. oh technology, you make this too easy).
- I have over 160 pins (for those not on Pinterest, get with the lingo already. I am terrified by tweeting, but this pinning shit? I have it DOWN) revolving around food. All of which is vegan, all of which looks incredible and delicious. I plan on trying to make a few recipes from there each week… otherwise what is the point of pinning them? Am I right?
- It is St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, I got positive work related news and I am going to get back into rock climbing. (See what I did there? I made it positive at the last-minute to show that things will always be okay and get better. Keep calm and carry on, right?)
To summarize how this week made me feel as a whole, I leave you with this post from Happyolks, one of my favorite food blogs, and a quote from my favorite nature writer. I read the quote and felt inspired; I read the blog post and started crying.
Yes, you heard me correctly. I started weeping over a food blog post. Mainly because of what was written, but also because I just love sweet potatoes that much… heh.
This is my living faith, an active faith, a faith of verbs: to question, explore, experiment, experience, walk, run, dance, play, eat, love, learn, dare, taste, touch, smell, listen, speak, write, read, draw, provoke, emote, scream, sin, repent, cry, kneel, pray, bow, rise, stand, look, laugh, cajole, create, confront, confound, walk back, walk forward, circle, hide, and seek.
