Vacation begins! i was able to squeeze in one last kickboxing workout this morning and my instructor wrote this on the mirror:
if it’s not hard
it’s not worth it!
while this may not apply to every aspect of life - getting a pedicure, for example, in my experience, is definitely not hard but always worth it - these words certainly lit a fire under me today 😄🔥💪🏻 and now we are all piled into my husband’s pick-up truck - two parents, two kids, two dogs, too much stuff - and heading north for what i hope will be a week of relative relaxation and real reconnection.
to that end, i am going to unplug. not completely, but significantly. instead of longer entries, for the next week or so i’m going to focus on gratitude. i’m looking forward to a little phone detox (before i re-tox). i need it! 😬
✨many of us know how to be a compassionate person toward others, which is an incredible thing, especially in a world that often times seems cruel. but do as many of us know how to be compassionate toward ourselves? to tap into your inner self & discover what it truly is that brings you joy?
the picture on the left was taken in february, and the picture on the right was taken in august. although i may not appear a blob on the left, you can almost hear my cry for help through my eyes and swollen face. i’ve always considered myself a compassionate human toward others, but i never have been toward myself. bogged down by alcohol, nicotine, & downers, i was cheating myself from the universal connection of joy.
the first step toward joy is to detox yourself from judgement. give yourself a break; don’t be so h*****n yourself all the time. but in doing so, be brave enough to admit to yourself that it’s time to move forward with a different lifestyle & mindset.
i want to allow people to recognize themselves in me. recognize that it’s time for a change. a change for the better, and a change to always, always, always, love yourself first. ✨

Needless to say, funerals can be a bit awkward for me. i don't know what the fuck's wrong with me y'all, but i'm glad i've written more than my fair share of s**t like this to take my mind off of the heavy s**t when that heavy s**t starts feeling a bit too f*****g heavy. fuck... i didn't mean to be a downer there. are you crying? please don't do that. nevermind. too late... #jwarrenwelch #thatsnotpoetry
