Honestly, truly, I need you too

Pen-to-paper journaling. The sound of birds flying by my window, singing happily because it's about to rain. My cats staring at me while I type something with the ever-loud mechanical keyboard. A YouTube video where someone's sharing their passion about something and teaching me how to love new things... And many more.
Sitting next to a tree, looking up a tree trunk at the sky, walking slowly 🐌 in woods or other non-human spaces and listening. Knitting. Wool and needles have gotten me through incredibly difficult life events. Following that thread keeps me tethered to myself and calm.
When the world overwhelms me, I nest. I choose a space in my home to tidy or improve in some way. Whether big changes or small, I find solace in making a positive impact on my surroundings. Even if that just means coloring a picture to put on the fridge. Take care cuties, sending hugs and love to all. <3
I am really loving all the suggestions from your readers, thanks so much for sharing. Sometimes it's just helpful to know we aren't alone and there are things we can do for ourselves.
I‘m currently looking into stoicism as a way to deal with difficult life circumstances. It‘s not what is commonly thought about when you hear the word "stoic", but more of a set of psychological techniques to help you better deal with negative emotions. I‘m still beginning to learn so I can’t claim it always works.
I like to read my Bible, and take some time to do my hobbies
