Revisiting Good Intentions

I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.
-Augusten Burroughs

Hi there! I hope your day/week is going well. If it isn’t, I hope it vastly improves in the coming days. I, on the other hand, have been in a funk lately. I’m not really sure where it stemmed from but sometimes it just happens.

 

While trying to sift through this funky state I’m in, I was reminding of one of our first posts on the blog. Back in April, when this whole adventure started, we wrote about living less out of habit and more out of intent. We talked about not just having good intentions but acting on those hopes to live fuller and more joy-filled lives. I needed that reminder this week and I’m glad my anxiety brain brought me back to that post. 

I wanted to share that update because like all humans, I am far from perfect. I want to share with you (and myself) that it’s okay to stumble sometimes and feel a little lost. But it’s important not to let yourself stay in that space for too long. I’m a big advocate for letting yourself feel not-so-pleasant feelings in order to move out and past them.If you have to return from time to time, that’s okay too but it’s important for those feelings not to settle in your mind and in your heart. 

So whatever headspace you’re in right now, I encourage you to be a friend. Be a friend to yourself and to others. There’s a lot of self-hate in the world. I know I am guilty of it from time to time. I am hoping to add “be a more thoughtful friend” to my list of intentions. When I am a friend to myself, I can be a better friend to others.

I also want to thank our readers for all your support and kind words. I’m still amazed by all the lovely comments we get about what we are doing here. Thank you. Thank you for being you and letting us be us and share silly little musings like these.

Have a lovely Wednesday friends.
