Are you okay? Or are you just surviving? by Cheche Winnie

Today, I would like us to take a step back and evaluate our mental health. So much has been happening around us so fast. In that, we have been masking our pain, losses, failures, among others.

As a firstborn, I was made to understand that am the one to take care of everyone else. But they forgot to tell me how to do the same for myself.

It’s okay to be vulnerable from time to time, to accept what happens, and work on how to get up. But it’s easy said than done.

Your brain will trick you into undertaking so many tasks and responsibilities. Your zeal will produce results that will make you forget the misfortunes for a minute. You will be happy seeing others get helped, your project performing and more partnerships coming to life.

Then one day, out of blue. That pain that you ignored will manifest unawares, sending you into a mini hell. Allowing you to feel the pain wholly and mercilessly. Tears wash your face, heartbreaks into pieces, and your world feels crushed.

What would have prevented this?

It’s not good to hold back, not good for your mental health. Grieve if you need to, scream, shout, bite that clothe, squeeze that stress ball, or do whatever works for you. The goal is to let it out.

A massive mellow mix by the late Andrew Weatherall

Andrew Weatherall was a very influential producer of electronic and ambient sounds of the 90’s. I didn’t even know about him or his music but this was in my AI recommendation from Youtube and it has opened up an entire world of amazing music now.

Lovely Scotsman Dean and his beautiful wee cat Nala cycle along the Danube river

Now that the weather in the northern hemisphere is blooming wonderful, Dean and Nala are back in action and having adventures in Europe. Since Dean released his book about his adventures with his cat, more and more people in public seem to recognise them! I love how affectionate they are to each other, this is the sweetest channel if you don’t know about it.

The Be Kitschig blog is always enjoyable, entertaining and fun and I loved this post about an iconic book about kitsch, Doug Lansky’s Crap Souvenirs. I’m sure you’ve seen these kinds of treasures in your local op-shop or charity shop. I am a sucker for kitsch myself. Here’s some highlights from the book. If you haven’t subscribed to Be Kitschig yet, what are you waiting for?!

    1. hehehe I’m so glad you enjoyed these Lani, yes those first lines really whet the appetite to read the whole book. That newspaper article is so funny too, just love how sort of awkward and weird people were about the internet back in the old days. I remember ‘logging on to surf the web’ hahaha…all of this terminology sounds so quaint now and the weird sound of the modem…yes who knew you could get pregnant from an internet chat room eh, so funny
