As I mentioned this thought in another Friday Flow issue before – I’m not going to lie to you: I’m feeling down.
There are good things, bad things and sad things happening in my life at the moment. And I can’t seem to deal with them all at once.
My energy is drained.
I feel tired all the time, yet I can’t allow myself to get some rest because there’s so much else that needs to be done at the moment.
I feel I’m neglecting my friends.
I feel I’m neglecting my needs.
And I’m neglecting blogging all in all. I can’t find time to browse through new posts of people I’m following, followers and random posts. I can’t find time to comment or reply to comments the way I’d like to. I can’t participate in photo challenges as much as I’d love to. And I can’t keep up with my posts about the mess in my room (which at the moment is taking catastrophic dimensions again^^) and the progress with the Konmari Method.
So I’m not going to lie to you. I’m telling you this because I started this blog as a challenge to myself, and I didn’t think anyone might want to regularly read it. But there are some dear followers that keep coming back, browse, reply, comment… And I appreciate every single one of them! Even if you are reading this now, and will not come back again – still, I appreciate you taking time to read through this. And that’s why I’m writing this here – to be honest, to say thank you, to apologize, but also to allow myself a moment of feeling down over the next few days.
If we struggle too much against some feelings we have, we might have a harder time overcoming them. If we just take them as they are, allow them for a while, maybe even manage to embrace them (wohooo – good luck with that!!!), they seem to be dealt with easier.
I’m trying. Everywhere I can, with all the issues I have. But I’ll allow myself some down-days.
Thank you for reading ❤
