This past week has been filled with highs, lows and everything in between. The first part of the week went as smoothly as it was going to, nothing much to say there. On Wednesday, I had a long, successful day (a project that I’ve been working on for quite a few months now ended in an event that went really well). Thursday I was exhausted from working said event, but spent my evening at PechaKucha Winnipeg (always fun and inspiring).
Then Friday… well, Friday was disheartening… and awful, and sad. I don’t really want to go into detail here, other than to say that I learned some things about myself that I’m not pleased about. I spent most of my day and evening crying, and then spent Saturday trying to pull myself out of the mire that was my mind.
Today was great… I did a drama-filled portrait (my favourite kind), then went for a long walk in the forest with Kyra, Cosmo and Kato (who turned 10 today!). Then I went to the ballet… which was a little bit like torture (I’ve discovered I don’t like classical ballet) — but at least I got to spend quality time with my friend Tim, which is always a plus.
Here’s hoping for a calmer next week. Here’s really, really hoping.
Two things that help me find peace: using photos as a way of emotional release, and walking in the forest among the trees.
