I had two of these particular days at the beginning of last week. I really just wasn't in the space to fight the daily battles. I know how lucky I am and I am in no way saying my life is bad, but I was just a bit raw on these two days and it didn't take much for me to feel the sting.
Journaling reads: Normally I am a fierce warrior, taking on life's battles at full charge, but today my walls are down, exposing that fragile piece of me that I usually protect from the world. So please, speak with soft words and be gentle with me for today. Tomorrow I will be back in full battle gear and ready to fight.
For the first time, I made a layout that focused on the feelings I was having at that exact moment, the true thought running through my mind. This layout is more torn and grungey than normal for me, because I was feeling more torn and grungey. I must admit that I completely destroyed a piece of Webster's paper that I didn't intend to, so I had to re-evaluate the process, but the end result made me feel better and isn't that a large part of what creating is about?
