Snarkyfishguts Posted September 14, 2020 Author Report Share Posted September 14, 2020 Ah yes, the promised update: I took the whole day off today. I played Animal Crossing ALL DAY with my mom. We really goofed off a lot this weekend, and I feel like I can get back to work tomorrow with cleaning and writing. I have decided to stop feeling responsible for the adult members of my family. My nephews... that's a different story They're kids, and sometimes they need an auntie. But back to those grown ups...They're adults, they can handle what life throws at them, and when they can't, they'll ask for help. I'm totally here for them if they need me, but they are not my responsibility, and I'm seeing the difference now. So yay for personal growth! YAY!!! I find meditation to be incredibly awkward still. I'm hoping it gets less awkward. I mean, meditators, does it get less weird feeling? Making my bed is probably the best thing ever, and why did I stop doing it? Oh right, because the world is a horrible place and I couldn't see the point in it. But I see the point now. It's just so comfy. Even my toes feel happy in a well-made bed. Can toes feel happy? my toes are so happy. Journaling Question of the Day was What are your favorite sensory rich foods? Use them to help you press pause on your day. And there were examples listed Hard Candy Chocolate Breath Mint Hot tea. I really like hot tea. It's really hard to rush through a mug of hot tea. I remember hearing stories about my great grandmother and the way she made tea dark with cream and sugar, and sometimes my mom makes her tea that way. Also cookies. There's nothing a fresh-baked cookie can't fix. It makes the house smell amazing too and it just feels like a warm hug when there's a tray of warm cookies in the kitchen. What about you? Do you have a sensory rich food that helps you slow down when things feel hectic and overhwhelming? Also, there is edible glitter. Just saying. Sparkly cookies 3 Quote Link to comment
