Still learning how to cat. It’s a slow process.

When I see something that’s awesome on here and it has 500,000+ notes, I’m both happy and sad.
I’m happy that these things - photos, quotes, snippets, whatever - are being mutually shared by us on here as they are the things that unify us. I often click the little heart and carry on with my dashboard scroll.
I’m sad, though, (and only a little) because I wonder about the people who “liked” and “reblogged” these things - I wonder about their voices, their thoughts, the things that they think that make them unique/wonderful/amazing people. In that moment of a click and reblog, what could they have said for themselves?
What voice did they shut off in that half-second of time? Did I do that myself?

Two pages of journaling later, and I’ve come to a decent conclusion about the past few days of my life.
I’ve gone from zero to eight miles an hour, and it’s been a bit of mental whiplash getting back into a groove that is healthy for me. I do need to apply the brakes and give myself more down-time.
I also need to refocus and regroup today to prepare for the week ahead. If it weren’t 20F outside, I’d go for a run. Still, tomorrow I will hit the gym at work, and hopefully that will help. I am trying to mitigate the anxious energy that seems to be a constant in my life, and with all the recent changes, I am not finding the outlet I need for that side of me - yet.
I will, though. I need to be a little more patient with myself. I also need to be a little more aware of why I’m doing what I’m doing, rather than going through motions on auto-pilot as I have been. In the end, I don’t feel connected, and with everything up in the air as of late, that’s not good for me. I need to drop my own anchor every now and again, check in with myself, and breathe deeply.
Re-learning how to live is an on-going lesson for me. It’s good to be aware of this, though.

Apparently, I’m an INFP
Yeah, this seems pretty damn accurate, actually.
