I call it “feeling stormy.”
No matter how many self-help practices we infuse into our daily lives to avoid the mental storms, they roll in anyways.
And I’m wondering if that’s actually a good thing.
Maybe anxiety, frustration, overwhelm, guilt, restlessness and fear are all essential to living a joyous life.
They provide a down to the up.
They inspire pause.
They spark creativity through expression.
They connect us as human beings.
Thinking about it this way takes the pressure off, right?
Joy isn’t a constant state of bliss.
It’s both sun and storm.
