When I’m Feeling Blue

For #100DAYSOFHALLOWEEN HAPPY– My self care plan

Artist Unknown

I am a great believer in self care- after all if something happens to me what will happen to my dog?

So here are some things I do to keep myself on track when times get tough and the holidays ( which can be depressing )  are upon me:

No matter how much it pains me at time- I get out into the world and I explore it, participate in it,  find things that are good about it. The bonus is I get get a lot of exercise when I do this.

I watch my diet- by that I mean I eat regular meals on plates and not out of a microwave dish while standing at my kitchen window and NOT seeing what is outside.

I hang out with people- my family, my friends, people I ride the train with. I don’t isolate myself. People are ok. I like them just fine. Not as much as dogs, but still-I do enjoy the company of humans. Most of the time.

Most important of all,  I write  every single day.

The math is simple- when I write I like myself. When I don’t write  I find I am just existing  from day to day- when I eat at my kitchen window and ignore the big bad I don’t like myself.

So I write and I create and I look forward to doing it the tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and the next day –

So there is my day to day self care plan- maybe some of it will help you out or maybe some it will just make you smile. Either way. I think that is okay.
