Yesterday was a storm day.
This is what greeted me when i opened the front door
and it was only just beginning.
Unlike many others, i don't mind the snow.
I enjoy walking in the white of it all, so I'm ok with it.
Some days though, it just feels like the planets aren't aligned.
Yesterday (and today) are such days for me.
Days where we wake up feeling energized
and have an image in our heads
of how smooth this day is gonna be -
and then little things start to happen
that throw this vision right out the window.
With the snow.
It's so important during such days
to ground ourselves with whatever helps us make sense of life.
Because let's face it - it doesn't always make sense.
For me, it's writing & art.
These things allow me to vent my frustrations & questions
with words & paint, without harming anyone else,
and before i know it,
while I may still feel melancholic about life
or wonder why certain things happen,
i am no longer angry or burdened.
The change in energy is palpable,
and while the circumstances are still the same,
I feel lighter somehow
and when i feel lighter, I feel more open to life,
centered and able to share.
What makes you feel grounded?
What makes you feel connected within the chaos?
