Hi rebels, here is a playlist of songs I'm digging at the moment (yes, I said "digging"). TGIT!
My throat feels weird–what if I can’t swallow? What’s going on with my stomach? Am I hungry? Not hungry? What if I throw up? Ow, my back hurts–what is that from? Ugh, I feel super warm, is it warm in here or just me? Do I have a fever? I’m so tired… how am I gonna make it through this day? What if I pass out? My eyes feel so heavy. Is what I’m feeling “normal”?
Welcome to my normal. The above is just a small example of what I deal with on a daily basis. At 17, I was diagnosed with a General Anxiety Disorder, put on Zoloft, and started seeing a therapist. Eleven years later, and I’m better, I’ve made progress, but it’s a daily struggle.
Welcome to another "playlist" here on my beautiful blog. This particular one is something I put together for when I'm having major anxiety and need to remember that everything is fine.
Here is my list; as always, share your favorite songs that help you feel like "everything's fine" in the comments!
Valentine's Day has come and gone, and though I am currently in a relationship, I think of Valentine's Day as any other day to show my loved ones I care (and this includes myself--self-love is important, ya'll!).
My good friend Kelly led a Radical Self-Love yoga workshop yesterday (sadly, I couldn't attend), and it inspired me to create my own "Radical Self-Love" playlist. So, without further ado, please enjoy these 10 songs that I listen to when I need a boost of self-love :)
I've been thinking a lot about this, and it makes me angry.
Within the realm of feminist activism (and feminist community), there is this cloud of judgment that hangs over those of us who activate our activism online. Even if we are demonstrating, flyering, etc on street level, our online activism is brushed aside--as if it doesn't even matter. It's not "good" enough.
My dad always wonders why I am so enamored with old photos. Photos from my past. Photos from other people's past. I like seeing where I came from. I like seeing how far I've come. I honor my past.
