  • February Fever.
.
.
I've had the flu for the last 10 days. Today I emerged finding the world in full Spring. Yay 🤗
.

Having to stay home for 10 days, the obstacle to go outside becomes bigger with each day. I feel nervous seeing people again. My anxiety takes over. I know nothing has changed in actuality but I've been so stuck in my own thoughts and world that the outside world becomes frightening again. Too big, too many variables, too painful, too scary.
.
I think this is left over from the years I was bullied and whenever I felt vulnerable or not quite healthy, my bullies would pick up on it and ''get me''. (I could never be vulnerable)
.
Now, I have to slowly be outside more and more over a couple of days. I have to get used to it again, normalize again. 
So, I focus on pretty sights such as these and listen to the birds chirping away. I try to feel the sun on my skin and every now and then I look up to carefully (sneakily) see some of the other people in the world. (Basically being mindful and focusing on the now, blegh 😉)
.
When I did look up, 2 little kids started talking to me about cats and the sunshine and that really sped up the process ☺️❤️
.
It'll return to normal in a couple of days but going to the gym again will be a tiny victory.
.
Does anyone else recognize this or experience something similar?🌱

  • According to Greek legend, Crocus was the name of a Greek noble youth who feel deeply in love with Smilax, a beautiful shepherdess. When the gods forbade his marriage to Smilax, poor Crocus killed himself in deep sorrow. Upon discovering his death, Smilax was heart-broken and could not stop crying. The Goddess Flora took pity on the distraught Smilax and turned them both into plants. Crocus was turned into the crocus flower while Smilax was turned into a vine. It is said that the Greeks used the vines to weave together garlands of crocus flowers as wedding decorations. #crocusflower #springflowers

  • Happy Friday! I've got some great Friday facts for you. Maybe I'm a bit like Cliff Clavin but interesting facts made me happy. 
1. The spice saffron is cultivated from part of the crocus flower (crocus sativus).🥣
2. Essential oils used to be part of Coca-Cola's original recipe.👍
3. Cambium bark, which is the inner layer of certain trees such as pine, is actually edible.🌲 I hope your have an inspirational Friday. May God bless you greatly. 
Share these facts with a friend and start up an interesting conversation.

  • I've been a little underwhelmed with the crocuses. The flowers seem to close up on cloudy/rainy days...which has been pretty much every day lately. So, I only really got to see these open blooms for one or two days 😒 Anybody else experience this? Bit of a sad trombone over here.
