Guts

It’s just getting on to 6 AM. I’ve been up since 5 due to a stomach whatever-this-is… it’s definitely got me questioning dietary choices lol.
I’m gonna put out some resources for mental health next week. There are also some podcasts that I love for folks who struggle with mental illness that can provide alternatives to what is typically out there. We need all we can get.
I want to be clear about something though:
I don’t judge folks who are expressing their rage and their grief through protest. People can and should resist with their hearts as well as their minds.

OMG OMG OMG

First of all, take a deep fucking breath in. Feel it in your chest. Then let it out slow. Pay attention to that breath. Feel it.
Now listen to me like you ain’t ever listened to anyone in your life.
If you haven’t slept all night for whatever reason, you shouldn’t be planning shit but how to get a good sleep.
If you haven’t eaten anything but trash (or nothing at all) have a goddamn meal made of actual food in a comfortable place.
If you have been drinking all night, or stayed sober, or… well, I don’t really care… just have a goddamn glass of water. Then drink another one.
After you’ve done that, call your family and talk about something mundane. I don’t give a fuck if it’s a checklist of shit you need to do around the house or speculation about Empire, take a goddamn mental break.
Trump probably doesn’t even believe the news yet.
Even HRC needed a moment, and I’m pretty sure she was one of those kids who started their book report the day it was assigned.
You have done plenty.
You are enough.
Take 👏🏽 a 👏🏽 fucking 👏🏽 break.
