Today is a day like that. I woke up this morning feeling a little surreal after some strange dreams. Upon checking the net I realized that yesterday was National Ice Cream Day. Now there's a happy idea. I have no idea if it's an American event (no doubt invented by Haagen Dazs or Ben & Jerry), but it doesn't matter. I didn't have ice cream yesterday and the little kid in me was beginning to pout at the thought of having missed out on an opportunity to indulge. There is a challenge I'm facing this week and I'm not sure I'm ready. I've been a bit worried about it this weekend and I didn't really spend any time preparing for it. Rather than start my work week today and add work drama to an already confusing tumble of emotions I decided to spend some time with myself. My inner kid and I were taking the day off.
I put the kettle on, prepped my Stash White Christmas tea, (yes, I am aware it's the middle of July but I like the white tea, peppermint and ginger root), and sang in the shower. Today is a day for singing, dancing, being creative and especially for venting! I figure that the weird dreams have a story they'd like to tell me so journaling is on the agenda for today. But before that comes the fun. I've learned that I reach my true self when I'm writing, or cooking, or just being creative with paints or crayons. To prepare for the upcoming challenge I'm going to have to be really honest with myself. My way to tap into that honesty is through my creative core.
