When you are insane… Christmas may seem CRAZY

insane

And the holidays seem to amplify any insanity. Many people struggle with depression over the holidays, but if you’ve been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness things can get very dark very quickly. And all the jingles and the family movies and the faerie lights of Christmas gets to be too much, even so that spending time with family feels like a punishment. BUT it’s all in your head. Whether I believe it or not, my family loves me and spending time with them is healing, And if I’m not well, my family would WANT to help, it’s easy to feel like a burden or a Grinch. But just remember the happiness you felt Christmas morning when you were little, deep down Christmas makes humans feel good, you gotta let it to it’s magic though!  If you’re feeling a bit down before the big festivities here’s some helpful information to keep you chipper. If you don’t have anyone to open gifts with this year, don’t freak out either, I’ll be blogging throughout the holidays, tell ME all about it!

Naughty or nice?

So maybe I won’t make it on to Santa’s list this year. I’m an only child, my parents beat his gifts 20 to 1 every year any way. Every family has issues, and Santa knows I can be difficult, but for all the shit that happened this year, it still comforts me to go home for Christmas. My mom cooks like she’s French and my dad knows how to spoil a kid! I hope you get to spend Christmas with excellent food and lots of love too.

*Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder

All women are born evil.

all women

 

Don’t get mad at Chad, women and men alike believe his statement to be true. We’ve all heard girls say: “I don’t really get along with girls, I just prefer to hang out with boys.” And that’s usually why the other girls don’t like you by the way, but I digress. Arthur Schopenhauer (my most favourite thinker) wrote the following on the subject: “Men are by nature merely indifferent to one another; but women are by nature enemies.” We should stop that… It would be a far reach to call me a feminist, but us girls need friends, evil or not.

Beware.

I’ve heard and experienced this too much to ignore it. Prince Charming’s the one that”s either going to break your heart or lock you up in his basement.

 

Throwback Thursday.

Have you ever heard anyone thanking God it’s Thursday? (Unless it’s payday of course!) I suspect they call it “Throwback Thursday” because the first people actually wanted to throw Thursday back. Neither me, nor any of the funny little creatures that live inside me, like Thursdays… TGIF tomorrow.

A beautiful tribute.

In a recent post I discussed how the loss of my pet cat and best friend affected me. I also shared that an incredibly talented friend of mine had started working on a tribute piece for me. I was having a tough night two days back and suddenly she surprised me with the finished product. I obviously cried my eyes out, but it was the good kind of cry. I never had the opportunity to bury my baby, and I finally have a sense of closure and remembrance that is worthy of what she meant to me.

Shané, you have been a blessing beyond my wildest expectations. I am truly touched by what you’ve done for me. Your spontaneous acts of kindness have brightened my life in such unexpected ways! And you’re a seriously talented lady, never stop making beautiful things! I am so proud to call you friend!

I’ve been obsessed with the local band Lark for a very long time. Today’s doodle is from their song Heroine Mary.
