Shaking it Off?
This last week has been a tough one. Emotions all over the map and as I’m experiencing everything I find myself reaching for old behaviors to soothe my way through. Last night I tried something I don’t really do. It wasn’t so much a coping strategy as it was a way to try and shake off the crazy of this week and relax into the weekend. Tara and I went to our favorite neighbourhood pub for a beer. And then we had a shot of tequila, and then a beer. And maybe that should really have been enough for me because wow does it all hit me so hard, but we had one more shot of tequila.
And I was drunk.
And like I said, I don’t really do that. I may have overdone it. We walked home. Probably slower than usual with my slight stumble. Probably more emotional than usual which, go figure, the drunkenness just all seemed to enhance. I don’t know if it served it’s purpose. But it was so much fun to sit at our favorite pub laugh together and relax. So I’ll call it an evening of shaking it off with the one I love and keep on moving.
Remembering the Gratitude
This week I had to work harder than usual to stay focused. To keep the things that are important to me and to looking after me in mind.
Here are my photos from this week and Positive Present’s #Gratitude30.
for Sleep. for The Holidays.
for Kindness. (for others & myself).
for Friendship (with my brothers & so many good friends).
for Music. for Time.
for Creativity. for Family.
I’m grateful for smiles this week. I’m grateful for drunken laughter and shaking it off. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with gorgeous friends and people to create jewelry pieces that bring them joy (and me too in the process).
To a new week and shaking it all off.
