I love how writing can make things clearer in your mind. Well, at least in my mind.
I had a touch of the Monday blues and so I sat down to write a post that was going to be a bit of a boo hoo poor me type post Monday evening. Somehow it turned into a wonderfully uplifting and positive post and by yesterday afternoon had been shared around Facebook and was illiciting grateful and heartfelt comments. Spreading so much love and light.
I went from feeling down on Monday to feeling SO great by Tuesday.
I just love how putting something into elegant and articulated words forces you to REALLY think about it and the way it makes you feel. It still surprises me to realise that the way you think you feel about something and the way you actually feel about it deep down can be polar opposites.
As I wrote yesterday's post, I think I was going for a 'this is how I try to live my life but I don't think it's working' kind of vibe. But by the time I had finished recounting the ways in which I live my life I realised that it actually WAS working.
And just like that, it put things into perspective, purged the negativity from my mood. Come publishing time I had a satisfied little smile on my face and the wonderful response that it received turned it into a grin.
So I say ha ha Sooky Sheri, you can't even have a whinge and be unhappy!
And you know what? That suits me just fine.
