May 21: Space
I said in the very first post for this challenge that I love space. I think it is super fascinating and sometimes overwhelming – but in a good way.
Like I said in that last post, I am not scientific in anyway and instead like space simply as it is. I don’t want to get too technical about it all, I simply want to admire how cool it is!
Thinking about space can be overwhelming, as there is so much out there and we really have no idea how big it all is. But I kind of like that.
Sometimes, I like to think about space to give me some perspective.
No matter what is going on in my life, my mind or my family there is so much out there. It makes me feel insignificant in a way that is both good and terrifying.
No one likes to think that they don’t matter, but that’s what space makes me think. Because in the grand scheme of things, I don’t matter.
My worries, my mistakes, my issues – none of it matters.
Sure that can give me some perspective, but sometimes it can give me a lot of anxiety too!
Just choose when to think about space wisely, is all I can offer.
May 22: Bloom
Bloom is something that I am trying to do.
You know me by now, so you understand how important self development and self improvement is to me. This is what I think of when I see the word bloom.
Of course, being the cheesy person that I am, I’m into quotes. I love the ones that talk about how people are like flowers – we need some time in the dark before we can bloom.
And as wanky as it will sound, that’s kind of what I feel like is going on with me right now.
I’ve been through a lot these past few years (haven’t we all?) and this stage in my life is all about healing and become content.
I’m having so many epiphanies at the moment and generally just reflecting a lot on who I am, what I want and where I want to be.
This is the first time in my life where I feel like I’m finally on track; like I’m finally being who I am supposed to be.
But there is still so much to learn. I want to continue blooming and continue growing.
This is something that I am going to keep working on and I don’t think it’ll ever stop – after all, some flowers bloom and then come back again the next year just as bright.
Hello friends, I’m sorry for yet another catch-up post but I’ve been pretty ill recently. There’s no need to go into it, but I’ve managed to get some more writing done.
I’m enjoying this challenge but I’m feeling like I’m drying up a bit now – anyone else feel the same?
