As some of you reading this blog know, I’ve been dealing with some pretty dark stuff that affected my creativity and my peace of mind. For the past seven months, I didn’t realize how deep I was processing a friend’s decision to do something that went against everything I believed in until I realized I had to stop listening (and not saying anything) to doing something about it. And that’s exactly what I did. It resulted in the end of our friendship and me walking away completely. Nineteen years of friendship gone.
I should be sad and in a way, I was. But after that moment passed, I looked at the lessons learned for that experience taught me many things.
It taught me to reclaim my time and my life and my peace of mind. My conscience, most of all. It taught me to accept that I did everything I could at the expense of my emotional and physical health but also to accept the outcome, good or bad.
It was a huge lesson and one I’m not going to forget. It means me guarding my personal space, physical, emotional, spiritual from this moment forward. It means standing up for what I believe in and no longer questioning my gut feeling day in and day out. It means trusting myself and ridding myself of toxic energy and people, even if they happen to be a “best” friend. It means knowing it’s okay to say no and walk away.
It means finally taking care of myself and the ones I love.
So… TLDR; I’m back and I’ve got a new book coming out in four days! And boy, am I excited!
How about you? How’s your day going?
