Feel Good 5 Friday

13 Nov

Sometimes you just run out of patience and it’s only Wednesday.

I mean I had nothing left in the tank and what made matters worse was the judgement. You know, when people who have no business judging you, go on and preach and you stand there thinking whaaaaaaaaaat? Mannnn, you’re not even in the arena how you gonna judge me. Some people shouldn’t even let out a whisper because the hypocrisy of their voice might just have lightning strike.

The judgement sucks especially when I’m already my harshest critic.

Writers. Artists, Athletes. Parents. People in general

We all have that extra sass in the back pocket just in case we didn’t feel bad enough about how the day was going, you got that zinger. That inner dialogue playing tricks on you when what you need is the strength of your inner superhero, sometimes he’s just stuck in the costume change.

You’re gonna need to wait a minute

So there were a lot of mixed feelings and emotional hangovers rolling over in the middle of the week. Got me thanking the universe for boxing and the sunshine on my back as I ran in the mornings. The pandemic minimizes the getaways, but a quick staycation would be good. Might have to plan another nature escape in order to recharge our batteries. Sometimes staring at your vision board isn’t enough, you got to make your own postcard. Even if it’s not pinned to the board, the trip will still be memorable and important for your sanity, because moving forward is a pace. Doesn’t have to be fast, just forward.

But until then, the eclectic bunch of feel good tunes got me bopping my head and feeling the beat, instead of focusing on the frustration of the moment. Releasing negative energy and breathing in something better, that’s Feel Good 5 Friday.

Buen Camino my friends!

    From the long slow climb up the first hill to the final stop, life is a rollercoaster of ups and down … do keep smiling.

      It sure is. Sometimes that downhill is rough but trying to coast through it. Beach therapy would rock right about now. Couldn’t make it out there this weekend but did make it to the lake and at least that was something:) thanks for hanging out

    Ugh! I’m sorry to hear this hermana. But if anybody has that back pocket ready to kick ass on any adversity that comes her way, it’s you.

    And these songs rock!

    Just like you.

      Thanks dude. The downs are rough but I do have some kickass left and Monday is the day to do it. 🙂 Thanks for words I do appreciate them and it’s always helpful when someone can give you a boost. These songs were a soundtrack to rock through the feelings. Thanks brother … sunshine and waves 🙂

        Monday is the reset day for me now. I found myself getting increasingly worse on Sundays over the last several months. So depressed by the time Sunday came around. So I decided to use that as my bridge to reset day- Monday.

        We do what gets us through, right?

        I get it, Cali. There are days when I could just cry, like all day. So I get to stepping instead because the spirals are no bueno.

        Hugs and sunshine.

          Dude Monday’s are a good reset and reflect. For some reason I always felt the week start on Monday and not on Sunday and I think I’m not alone on that. And you’re are on point once you start to spiral it takes A LOT more effort to come back. So I’m with you on the reset. I tap into whatever I can to help dig me out Les Brown be helping me out sometimes as does the Quote of the Day podcast. Beach therapy always works best 🙂 Hugs and sunshine right back atcha!

            They are. I need to tackle it rather than have it tackle me.

            Yeah the spiral is no joke. When you give into the darkness, it can be hard to break free of it.

            You have such great coping mechanisms, but I would expect nothing less from a soul sister such as yourself.

            Hugs and sunshine Cali

    Music always does it for me too. 😃

      It’s some of the best ways to hit the reset button whether you’re walking, running or in the car:) good to see you!
