Im still fishing!

Just wanted to share a quick strategy I find helpful! This is my self care bag! 

I have lotion, colored pencils, coloring pages with a clip board, two prompting journals, a blank journal, pen and calming oils in there. I have a few more things to add but the bulk of it is in there! 

Being prepared to handle stress in a healthy way is the best way to help yourself. 

Cheers and best wishes for mental health!

Unsure when.

Hey there! My name is Sommer and it has been 16 days since my last post.

Because shit is gettin’ busy!

We finished off summer and kicked off the school year! We also started cheer and football. And it one week I will be back at it for another semester!

I hope you stick around for a come back!

Good luck and God speed!

“There is a song by The Lumineers. It’s called Deadsea. There is a verse that really spoke to me at a time where I was at a significant crossroads;

 

“Yes, there are times we live for somebody else Your father died and you decided to live It for yourself you felt, you just felt it was time And I’m glad, cause you with cats, that’s just not right.”

 

My Father died and I had decided to live my life for myself. That’s exactly what I did. And boy did that open the mother of all cans of worms. I had sloppy execution and made some decent mistakes. But in the end it worked out for the better. I found my true self. I found happiness.

Up until then I had lived a life of people pleasing. I feared upsetting people through my words or actions so I carefully…
