Yeah I'm still at it. I told you that I'm not quitting the photo challenge. It's just going to take me longer than 30 days. While I'm here, can I just say a few things?
I really don't like when people refer to relaxers as creamy crack. It was somewhat cute/funny the first time I heard it I guess, but there are some folks who don't even ever say relaxer anymore. I just don't think it's necessary. It's so extra - like when people refer to pork as swine.
There's this quote by Nelson Mandela that says "There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find ways in which you yourself have altered." Sometimes a person or a situation reminds you of where you've been and why you don't go there anymore. And it feels good. Maybe a little sad...a little melancholy, but mostly good because you're in a healthier place.
My house is always a little bit messy. Whatever. My mind is a little bit messy too and I'm okay with that. Over the last couple weeks, the subtle mind shift I talked about here has really helped me relax. I've also been drinking more wine, so not sure where the credit is due.
Love and hugs til next time.
