Less hate, more create

In times of trauma or unrest we may fill our mind with non-stop negative messages that trigger our moods and emotions to flow in a dark downward spiral. Often we fill our head so full of harmful thoughts that we leave no room for the positive ones. This can lead to depression and suicide if we are not watchful and if we forget to ask for help. So how to unwind the mind's eye to focus on a place of light and hope? Create something new. Something only you could create. Depending on who you are and your interests it might be a drawing, a poem, a collage, or even writing thoughtful messages in a card for a friend. By taking a moment to re-adjust the negative patterns of our brain we might find the space to breathe. If only for a short time. Thank you Mom for this post, and for everything you do for me.


  1. This is a wonderful reminder of believing in ourselves and in what we're actually capable to do. And that change starts with the small things. I hope you're having a wonderful week!

  2. A poem is a really good idea in this scenario because it's such a cathartic form of expression. It's really medicinal in that it allows your wounds to "bleed" onto the paper.
