This is what my life looks like right now:
I have about three unfinished blog posts and I apologize for that. My mother is in California along with my fiance. I have been knee deep in cleaning supplies for the past week. My bills have sucked my life dry and I am behind in school and at work.
Whenever I am a mess you will be sure to find my desk a mess, my room a mess, my car a mess, even – dare I say it -my blog a mess?
I actually heard someone saying she felt sorry for that poor girl that lives out of her car. Yes- that is how much junk I have in my car right now. And yes- I am exaggerating-it is what I do best, damn it!
Another thing that takes the biggest hit when I am stressed out is my body.
My body has been crying out for mercy for the past few weeks. “PLEASE, TAKE PITY UPON MY POOR SOUL!”
I went to yoga the other day and realized that I love the following poses:
It feels amazing to just stand there and feel your feet solidly planted into the earth. For some reason it makes me feel centered and calm. It makes me realize where I am standing, who I am, what I am doing.
Whenever I feel unbalanced I stand this way. And I feel balance and calm again.
Give it a try!
I’ve also been painting mandalas, which I find incredibly soothing. They seem to bring down my anxiety quite well.
By golly these ancient Indians were doing something right! I need to get more into this stuff.
See the bottom of the post to see my mandalas.
So anyone when I am done zen-ing and pull myself out of this hot mess, I will complete those posts and get them up.
Although they are probably unfinished because they are crap.
So then again maybe I won’t.
But what I am sayyyiing is, I will climb out of this mess soon.
And then I will be back to my bloggerific, clean desk, finished projects, creative self again!
