mood

Little bit of homemade art

Honestly, I really have had a nice day today. I’ve been productive and mostly in a good mood. I’ve done stuff. I’ve been outside. I went on walks. I ate real food.

Generally I’ve had a good day – and it’s been too long since that happened last time.

I picked up this flower on my way home from one of the walks and I really love taking photos of flowers. And today I felt inspired to do some editing. I’ve never edited this way before, but I really enjoyed it. Maybe in time I’ll find something worthy of being framed and put onto the wall. Maybe.

It doesn’t really matter. Today I’m just happy I’ve felt good. Already looking forward to that happening again.

Mood down

Mood down today. Call help.

What if you could call an order like that. Like on a plane, the pilot calling the tower, “left tank down, tell me how to fix it” – and then they give you the exact instructions on what to do in order to solve the problem and get back to normal again or at least how to safely get through the situation.

I’d like to be able to do that. “Mood low, send solution now”, “Energy levels not good, what to do?” or even,  “Things are going downhill, in need of uplift”. And then receive instructions right away on how to deal with the sitation.

Things would be a lot easier then.

Soft music playlist

Maybe this is more for myself than for anyone else. It might be. Or it just might be something that someone else can use for themselves. But I was in a weird mood tonight, and for some reason I opened Spotify and pressed the first playlist I found… and I found just what I needed. Soft music and tones that fit my mood, that let my mind wander and at the same time made me stick with myself and not drift off too far.

Since I got lucky I wanted to share, and I wanted to save it for future reference for myself.

  1. Colbie Caillath – Try
  2. Alex & Sierra – Little Do You Know
  3. Rachel Platten – Better Place
  4. Labrinth – Jealous
  5. John Legend – You and I (Nobody in the World)

 

A little bit of positivity

I’m once again doing a small collage here, and I will repeat what I said last time:

I know photos is one way of affecting my brain and my way of thinking. I hope that this can work for others besides me, but the idea is that photos can bring good thoughts to you and lead positivity through your mind instead of misery and hopelessness.

Forcing optimism upon myself

I’m not sure about the title for this post, but it was the best I could do right now do describe what I’m trying to do with this collage.

I know photos is one way of affecting my brain and my way of thinking. I hope that this can work for others besides me, but the idea is that photos can bring good thoughts to you and lead positivity through your mind instead of misery and hopelessness.

These pictures scream spring to me. They’re happy and they light up everything around them. It’s a miniature mood board, designed to lift your, and my, mood. It might not be much, but even a little bit is a victory.

Suddenly so sad.

A few hours ago, or even less, I sat here. Happy. Proud of myself for having just gone to the gym again(!), and I was looking forward to tomorrow, cause I’ll be going home to my parents.

But now, so little time later, I’m still sitting here and I feel bad. The simple task of having to take a shower is overpowering me. The thought that my roomie is having people over tonight so it’ll be loud around me makes me upset. Seeing my family tomorrow suddenly is a chore instead. And the fact that I was just happy seems so far away. I feel like I’ve been sad forever.

I want to go hide in my bed and just ignore the world. Ignore that I should be showering and packing, ignore the stack of dishes and maybe most of all, just ignore time and the expectations the world has for me. What is makes me expect of myself.
