Hello gentle summer rains! Welcome to the Friday Open Thread. It is so good to see you. How are you? How is your cat? I can’t wait to hear all about it.
This week I’ve been thinking a lot about self-care and like, believing I deserve to feel better. I just got prescribed an anti-depressant for the first time after my therapist looked me in the eye and said “It doesn’t have to be this hard.” Y’all, who knew? It has always been this hard. It’s only been a week but I’m already finding it easier to get out of bed in the morning, and I’m more motivated to get out of my house and do things. I rearranged a bunch of my furniture. I’ve been writing. I finished re-reading Harry Potter because #summer and I cried SO MUCH when [name omitted] dies. (Feel free to guess in the comments, with spoiler warnings, which death would be the one to make me sob uncontrollably every time.)
In short, I’m feeling more like myself than I have since I moved back to Texas, except perhaps at camp where I am inevitably the most myself possible.
It is pretty cool!
So what about you, lovelies? How are you feeling? Are you wearing enough sunscreen? Have you bought your very favorite snack food at the grocery store lately? What is your favorite snack food???
As always, pet pictures, selfies and crush confessions are highly encouraged. I’m so excited to hang out with y’all!
