day 46.

Wednesdays are turning into big-time self-care days. It’s nice to have a day off of work in the middle of the week to get shit done and take really good care of myself.

Today I had counseling. I decided to go back to every week due to having a lot more stuff come up emotionally recently. I think it’s a good move on my part for now. And it is really helpful to talk stuff out and feel really safe to do that kind of work.

After counseling, I had acupuncture. An hour on that table is all I need sometimes. She did some emotional work on me as well this week. I’m trying to hit it from all angles. Can’t hurt.

I also went to clary sage herbarium today for the first time. I picked up a clearing flower essence blend for removing negativity. I was making my own blend for awhile using bach’s flower essences and a gem essence, mostly for stress relief and anxiety, but I stopped using it awhile ago. I haven’t really felt the need for it, in a good way. I was talking today with my housemate about how when things feel good, we let simple self-care stuff slide. But when things aren’t so awesome we return to them. Because they help, even if it’s just a mental shift that’s happening. And how really, I should be doing this kind of maintenance self-care all the time. This project is partly about breaking that pattern for me. So I’m going to be more intentional about taking flower essences, and I think adding this clearing blend to the mix is really good for me.

I also bought a delicious loaf of rosemary green olive bread and some brie to go with it. And some coconut macaroon ice cream! I shouldn’t have gone to the grocery store so hungry, but I think I made some good choices in terms of food splurges.

And day 15 of fatshion february!

queer love poems

this project explodes my heart quite a bit.

glitter tongue:

Glitter Tongue is an online collection of love poems by thirty queer and trans poets, launching Valentines Day 2012. It grew out of a collective writing effort among Margaret Rhee, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Tamiko Beyer, Oliver Bendorf, Meg Day, and Ching-In Chen, and then expanded to community. This is the result.

a resource to remind me of why i love the way i do.
