Feeling Down? Try This.
So would anyone like to take home a few of these 8 dozen cookies I made?
Honestly though, I have felt some very deep sadness in these past few months.
I don't really like sharing the dark stuff and always want to keep my pages happy and positive and silly.
But I think it's really important that you know I'm human too.
When grief becomes overwhelming and I feel like I can't make myself do anything, I bake.
I tried this for the first time a couple weeks ago because I was tired of just sitting and staring and bawling.
And suddenly a thought popped into my head.
I'd never done it before. On my own, at least.
So I decided to listen to that little voice.
And as I cracked eggs and laid out parchment paper and mixed the ingredients all together, my soul stilled.
I felt okay.
I could breathe and think about something else outside of me.
This has now become my go-to for those heavy, difficult days.
Two days ago, I made brownies.
I know this strategy works too because I get a sweet treat to reward myself for getting through and feeling and processing and healing.
Trust Lupin's advice: "Eat, you'll feel better."
