Sometimes life is shitty and sad

2013-06-16 18.34.18Sometimes life is shitty and sad. There’s nothing wrong with that. There’s beauty in sadness.  It is part of an amazing spectrum of human feelings; it brings people together.  Without sadness, we cannot ever feel elevated and happy.

I was having a shitty and sad week, and made this video:

As I allowed myself to feel these feelings without judgment, I felt a sense of inner peace at the same time. Strangely cozy in fact, like a soft, warm blanket on a cold rainy day. Looking out at grey clouds and pouring rain, I knew I was safe inside and that the sun would surely come out to play again.

And guess what, it did.

In hindsight, I see that the more I embrace my emotions without judgement, the quicker they are able to flow through me and the faster I can move on.

What do you do when you’re sad? Would love to hear, comment below!

    So glad that you chose to be vulnerable and to show us that side. Sadness has its place. It teaches us gratitude, makes the nectar of joy sweeter and holds lessons for us about perseverence.

    When I’m sad, I sometimes cry. I also photowalk, make art, journal or do some music therapy. Eventually, clarity appears piece by golden piece. Right now, my helper’s heart is broken and though the sadness has lasted longer than I would choose, each day as I practice self-care, the pain lessens. Much love to you, hon. ((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))

      Ohhh my dear Paulissa, I’m so glad we are in this together. I want to say “I am sorry for your loss” but in my deepest soul I know that there really has been no loss–that your dear student and friend has only found a better place to be and is now enjoying infinite love in infinite space.

      At the same time, I completely understand the feeling of separation and sorrow. I lost someone very dear to me (my sis-in-law) a year and a half ago and my soul wept for days while my body couldn’t move.

      I’m here with you, sister. =)

      Love,
      Kat

    Through years of processing pain I am learning the importance of surrounding myself with people who will allow me to express my pain, who can be comfortable in the presence of my tears, and who understand that they don’t have to “make it better”, “make it go away” or make me be anything other than what I am. I’m learning not to be angry at people who can’t be/do that but to accept their limitations and appreciate whatever effort they are making. And most importantly I am learning that I do not have to be sad on my own. If I need a hug I can ask for one and it will be given. If I need support there will be a shoulder willing to hold me because the world is really quite full of love only waiting to be received.

      That is so beautiful Kristi! It’s amazing how so many of us feel “ashamed” of this beautiful feeling called sadness. I’m so happy to hear you have people to lean on.

    I know what you mean, I just got the news that my aunt has cancer and after watching one of my other aunts slowly die from cancer a couple of years ago while I was in University doing exams and making the 5 hr drive back and forth every other day to be with my family I really do not want to see it happen again. Life can change in one moment so you really have to make the most of it.

    I saw that you have followed me on Twitter so I am just stopping by to check out your blog. I have followed your Twitter account as well. I hope you get the time to stop by and check out my blog.

    have a great week

      Hi Erica!

      Thank you so much for your comment, and I’m so sorry to hear about your aunt. I’ve had a very similar experience with my cousin, and also my sister. Life CAN change in one moment, and you’re right–we should absolutely make the most of it!
