I am sending this picture to you because I spent a chunk of time today
living in the pages of my journal. I really needed to reflect and
reevaluate some choices and refresh some of my aspirations for my life
this year. Mostly, I needed to hear my own voice. It’s easy for me to
get lost in the shuffle of my big family and when I do I get cranky
and have a tendency to eat my emotions, which leaves me sad and
frustrated… So today I had some time to myself while the rest of the
family went to the library.
Last week besides crying in the meeting I sat at the dentist office and cried as they told me they could tell I was stressed because of the condition of my gums:( They know I have been brushing because the lack of plaque build up was evidence that I take good care of my teeth. I’m really naturally quiet and I don’t like conflict of any kind so I internalize lots of feelings…very bad for my body, very bad.
Here is my picture from this morning. I took a picture of my favorite bowl. We call it the bread bowl because I keep all our bread in it!
