holding a mug


I know that title is maybe not what you expected me to say, after-all I am the girl who writes about her feelings constantly, and loves to share the real parts of everyday life with you lot.

But sometimes, you don’t have to write about it.

There’s certain situations in my life that I know I will never write about, for various reasons. They involve other family members that I wouldn’t see fair to divulge information about, some things just feel a bit too close to home to, and other stuff I simply haven’t worked out myself yet, so I can’t offer any words of advice or anyone else.

I had quite a triggered moment the other day, and my first thought was to write a post about it and see if that lightens the load that it brought me. But some thing just felt a little ‘off’, it didn’t feel quite right to talk about it in words on a page which will stay on my blog forever. As much as I want to share my life online, (LINK) I would never post anything that goes against my gut instinct. That’s just the way I work and my compass for what to post.

Instead, I rolled out my yoga mat, put on my favourite songs and worked it out by myself, moving my body in ways I needed and soothing my soul with words that comfort me. I let myself think and feel without judgement, and without the need for a conclusion.

I felt so much calmer afterwards, and I still had that feeling of relieve that I get when I’ve wrote something down.

Do you think theres some things you don’t have to write about, what would you do instead?
