Recently I’ve cried a lot. I cried this morning, I cried yesterday, I’ve cried pretty much every few days this month and to be honest I started to think I was just a bit pathetic.
Worrying about everyone I need to buy for this Christmas, worrying about the cost, worrying I haven’t got thoughtful enough gifts and worrying about getting everything done.
Sometimes it just feels like this time of the year everything is so go-go-go that I forget to just breathe and trust it will all be ok.
As the end of the year draws closer I always find myself thinking about all the stuff that’s happened, things that have fallen apart and the things that are still hurting. The painful stuff that still hasn’t healed.
I always want to start the new year with a fresh start and sometimes I forget that the now is the only thing that matters.
So right now I just need to take care of myself, because honestly, I feel like a fraud sometimes. I write posts on wellness and recently I’ve had so many days when I don’t feel good. I can feel amazing, like the day I filmed the Wellness tag, but some days I can just feel a bloody mess.
So if you ever find yourself feeling an absolute mess just know we all do sometimes. Sometimes you simply need to let it all out. To cry out all the tears and to take it easy. Christmas, the past, all your mistakes are not worth worrying about. Advise which I need to take myself.
This time of the year is hard for many of us and for many different reasons, but you know something, if you take a moment to yourself you’ll soon realise you don’t need to worry. Everything is ok and everything will work out. Life has a funny way of sorting itself out.
So cry if you need to cry, but remember to be kind to yourself if you do find yourself shedding some tears. Crying isn’t weak, but a release from holding it all in way too long.
Sometimes we just need a good cry, I know I do sometimes.
Enjoy your Christmas, lots of love,
