sometimes it is good to try to do or feel different about things as opposed to the normal way you would like.. you can read horoscopes or go to a gym or try to meditate or get medication or believe in jesus like all of these things are a thing you can do (not necessarily interchangeable, not always, though nearly). if you want to try to feel good or maybe feel a certain way. i don’t necessarily believe in or understand anything, though i know i don’t believe in god or w/e, so when it comes to matters like this i think it is okay to try things that move you in any positive direction.
on sunday night i swept 7 months of dust out from underneath my bed along with my inhaler and some bobby pins. i moved my bed from the children, creativity & entertainment bit to the marriage, relationships and partners part of this bagua map. when we first moved into this house i really wanted to make a good start in a new space and i decided to have a look into room chi. found this map of which there are many varieties may i just add.
have cleared the creativity and entertainment & good fortune zones
keep my dirty laundry in the spiritual life / travel zone to vaguely represent cleansing,
on the border of wealth, prosperity and self worth / health, family and community is my desk.. seems meaningful.. it all seems just so damn… meaningful..
idk scraping the bottom of the barrel you guys
let’s try anything to feel okay though
I notice that Taylor Swift seems to make a lot of unconsidered friendships so as to a avoid sinking into a hole of depression or loneliness (I don’t do this and I am ok).
I like Taylor Swift
even if maybe she isn’t always an affirmative person, I think that her songs have basic affirmations.. always good reinforcement
the drop in ‘we are never ever getting back together’ also was a very important moment
