Hey Nerdy Peeps! I failed at the May blogging challenge and I’m ok with that. You see life has a way of getting in the way and it changes things for me. So, I decided to talk to you today. I’m going to tell you about all of the things that are bugging me. In the light of Mental Health Awareness Month, everyone needs a voice and I want to share mine with you.
I’m struggling lately. Like really struggling. My body is exhausted. My mind is exhausted. I can’t explain it but I feel like I’m falling apart. Now, physically I feel fine, other than needing sleep. Mentally I feel overly drained, but I am hanging in there. Despite feeling exhausted, and drained I am doing things that I love to keep my mind off of everything.
So, do you want to know what those things are? Maybe they can help you get through some of the crappy mental health issues you’re trying to fight.
I’ve been painting. It’s really relaxing and I’m learning that I’m pretty good at it.
I am writing like a crazy person. Have you ever had so many stories that you need to get out on paper? Well, I have and it’s hard to keep track of them all, but it has also been a lot of fun.
Books are becoming my greatest escape. I’m listening to Smoke by T.M. Frazier, I am reading Eden by Elle Ward and Streetlamps to Starlight by various authors! (Review coming soon)
Now my biggest distraction happens to be my business. I have finally decided to start a graphic design business call Nerdy Designs by Jessie. I have been creating all kinds of fun graphics and I can’t seem to stop! I have gained my first client and helped her re-brand her business and I loved doing it.
Here is some of my work!
Mental Health Awareness month is a big deal to me. It teaches me a lot about my mental health and what can help it. Do your research and learn what you can for your mental health or for others you know who deal with mental health issues.
