It's been a while, but I've been avoiding #Meditation because I've been using it to do work. Working with emotions if very hard. So, I created a guided meditation to work with my emotions. Have a listen if you think it would help you.
I sent an email to a potential interview for the new #MentalHealth podcast. This one is a big reach and I'm nervous about rejection, but I am so worried about failing at making this happen that I have push myself. Wish me luck.
Got patch cables for my new compressor. Um, wow. This makes a difference. Woo.
I think this will take more concentration to get a decent sound out of my voice then I have at the moment. I'm not at my best #MentalHealth
So, maybe tomorrow I will play more, or record a new mantra.
I still feel weird, or like an impostor, calling myself an artist. Maybe have a look at some of my work for sale at https://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/sikkdays/
There's a sale right now and I'd love your support. In the end it's about my acceptance, but it would feel good to see others enjoy my work. #Mastodogs
Self-promo is hard. So, I'm attempting to be better at it.
There's some danger in attaching yourself to labels when you're dealing with diagnosis in #MentalHealth. Rather than doing the hard work of dealing with my own emotions and circumstances, I may identify as broken. I know this.
Imagine my surprise when I recently started to entertain the idea that I'm a victim in some areas of my relationships. A blog about being a victim to my own insecurity. https://savethis.space/2019/victim
Talking about #addiction is hard because it feeds that shame demon riding my back. The shame can sometimes led back to addiction. As a society we don't particularly like talking about addiction. We rush people away to treatment facilities, like we push the elderly to homes. That's mainly chemical addicted folks. There's a tremendous stigma around behavior addiction. Those of us with that problem are merely weak.
So anxious about this #podcast project on #MentalHealth. Conducting my first interview, for an edited, radio-doc style show in a few minutes.
I can edit, let it be what it will be, yet so nervous and keyed up.
Fear. That perfectionist crazy for outside validation because I have a hard time validating myself.
Speaking of future production. I need to check the specs of my spouse's old laptop. Maybe I can drop linux on it and use @Jami or another option to record non-local guests. Hooking the laptop up as another source to my audio interface on my main machine to be able to get a separate track. Hmm. If the fans are loud, it's a no go.
If you're here for decentralization, you might like letter M and N. Much of the rest of the alphabet has been focused on #MentalHealth
'm doing #36DaysOfType and like much of my art, I'm exploring my emotions and #MentalHealth. This is what I wrote about #Hustle for the letter H-- https://savethis.space/2019/afraid-of-what-we-find
I wish I could stop seeing everything as an expectation. It kills me.
This quote "When change comes from a place of non-acceptance..." broke me. So often I'm trying to change myself to fit in, instead of better myself.
Making connection is part of #FollowFriday. More than just like interests, I've connected to the following people via vulnerability. We discuss #MentalHealth, #Anxiety, #Depression, and sometimes help each other. This is my cluster:
I hope you find a cluster here. Much 💜
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
