you know those days where the world just seems to rub you the wrong way? where everything seems so harsh and everyone seems so rough - where every encounter throughout the day leaves you feeling a little bit traumatised? that was my day today.
at times like this i feel like clamming up and keeping myself to myself. i want to be an island, i don't want to have to interact with other people because sometimes i think i'm simply not good at it.
but then i remember that everyone has these problems. and adam always tells me that as long as you feel like you are doing the right thing, and you believe in what you say and do, and you stick to your guns, then you don't have to worry so much.
sometimes i think that we are all just on autopilot so much that we forget to take a look at what we do and how we act, and to think if we are really doing ourselves justice. are our words and actions really representing us in such a way that would make us proud? sometimes i feel like i don't make myself proud in this way, it probably means i need to be a bit more mindful.
but because no one likes a grumpus, i went on pinterest and looked for some things that make me happy so that i could write down a few things to cheer myself up:
its pictures like this that remind me why i wake up every morning. i need to start riding again, it has been too long and i don't think my brain functions as well as it used to because i am not riding every day.
