It needs to heal in it’s own way and tempo 🧩⚖

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Like I mention in my last post,- to have some mental challenges in life is more and less like break a leg or get a sore throat. Sometimes a kind of treatment is necessary, other times the body heals it self. Sometimes you get a scar, other times not.

To compare mental challenges with physical challenges is probably the best way for many people to understand a bit about mental challenges in life.

Mental challenges happens if a person get some not to good experiences in life. The experiences can be many different things,- lose someone close to you, be in a bad relationship, even a bad friendship. It can be so many different things and experiences in life that can make a open, painful sore in a person’s soul and mind. Like the physical open sore needs time to heal, also the open sore in the soul and mind needs time to heal as well. But the healing process is different from person to person, as well as the treatment process also can be different from person to person.

This is not a open sore,- it’s a part of a painting I’m working on,- but it looks a bit like a open inflamed wound, right?

Other times the mental challenges can feels like a big, black, painful and empty holes inside you that you are trying to fill up with different things to both get rid of the pain and close the hole.  Get rid of the empty feeling inside you.

Other times it can be a mix of both the open inflamed sore and the open, empty black hole. And the treatment? It depends on the person, the day, the situation.

I know my daughter very well. I’m probably the one who knows her best, maybe even sometimes better then she knows her self. Because I’m her mammi, I have carried her around, in my stomach, in my arms, in my heart ❤.

And when I say I sometimes wish she was 10 months or 10 years old it’s because it was so much easier to comfort her when she didn’t feel very well. Now at days I’m not always sure what I can do for her so she feels well inside her after what she has been through.

I try to do her days in our home as easy as possible so she can focus on her self, get better, heal her pain, heal her mind, do a good job in her job, get as ready as possible for the big travel to Bali.

I know I can’t fuss too much, demand too much, arguing to much. It’s a lot inside her that must be in place after what she has been through. I know that, and I know things needs to be healed in a way that’s good for her, in her own tempo,- so the scars after her experiences will not be to big in her soul and mind when they are healed.

And I also want her to try to focus on good sleep, regular and healthy food and some exercise. Yoga, walks,- what ever that’s suitable for her. I know this three things are a very important part of getting better, let the mind heal faster.

But to focus on a as regular lifestyle as possible for her is not so easy when she works shifts. Days, afternoons, nights and weekends. It’s not so easy to split the house work between us either when she works like this and also needs to focus to heal her mind and soul.

So even if we have tried,- it’s mainly me that makes the dinners, do the shopping, clean the house, do the dishes and wash the clothes.

So yes,- I can get incredibly tired sometimes. Do different things in the home for two people, take care of her as good as I can and do my own work and my own things too. I actually don’t manage “all and everything”,- but I know this is just for an period. And I know that this is the best solutions for my daughter at the moment.

In about 4 to 6 weeks she will be on the way to Bali. Things will be different for her as well as for me. Hopefully her soul and mind will be more healed, and if she needs me or her psychologist,- I’m just a phone call away, and her psychologist just a Skype conversation away 😊. And her friends will also be available for a good chat,- I know that 😊.

And to be honest,- I need to “heal” a bit too after this period. My daughter know I needs it too,- that Im tired now it’s not a secret. And I’m going to have one week holiday when my daughter has travelled to Bali and in that holiday is just for myself and for to do absolutely nothing (wonder if I can manage that 😅?) 😁.

So,- we both needs to be healed a bit,- but just in very different ways and for very different reasons. I know my daughter will be fine,- she is a strong, young woman ❤. And I will be fine too,- it’s going to be fine to just clean my own cups and plates, wash just my sock and jumpers, clean up just after just my self for a while 😁. I don’t need to heal a open inflamed sore in my soul or a empty painful black hole inside me, likely daughter needs to do. So my “treatment” is very easy actually compared to what my daughter’s has to work with ❤. But she is getting there,- better and better after every “down trip” 🙏🧡.

And she have found her drawing book and colours too during the last days,- a very, very good sign that her mind and soul is starting to heal more and more. I’m so happy and grateful she’s starting to filling up the painful, black hole with colours 🎨🧡. And the inflation is getting better, but I know there still will be days that that one can be painful again.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊.

Sometimes the pain inside can feel like a painful, open, black hole inside you that needs to be fixed or filled up with something,- it’s just not always easy to find out what.

Mental challenges can feels like a inflamed sore inside, or like a big, black, painful hole that’s needs to be filled up with something so the pain stops 🚫. My daughter has found her drawing book and her colours, and have slowly started to fill up the black, painful hole with colours 🎨. We all need different ways to find our own way for the treatment of our soul and mind 🧡🥀🙏.

Reuse and recycling 🌍 ♻️

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

As some of you know I like “old” and “used” things, and I like to reuse and recycling. For example I really like to get a bag or two of clothes someone else are “finish” with, or can’t use anymore ( = reuse) , or I like to try to find some kind of “solutions” to use different things “over again” if that’s possible ( = reuse) . Many times it’s not possible. Even food I try to use in the best way as possible instead of throw it into the garbage 🗑.

I was also very good to recycling paper, plastic, glass, metal and so on until I moved last summer. The reason why I haven’t been very good to recycling this things after I moved is because it has been difficult to find the correct recycling garbage boxes here in the area. But now during the last weeks there’s some new recycling boxes in the street so it will be easier to do that kind of “job” for the nature again, recycling ♻️🌍.

I don’t need new things and fancy stuff. For me it’s most important that I like the things and stuffs I have, get or find ….or buy,- because now and then I also need to buy something 😊.

And when I’m painting on the glassbottles I in my own use a glassbottle over again instead of throwing it away 🎨. And I did also find a couple of solutions to use plastic bottles “over again” too 😊 (= reuse)

I made a kind of “gift- , “safe”-, carry- and possibility to hang up” bag for my painted glassbottles 🎨

Now and then, not very often, but it happens people “drops by” to take a tiny look at my art and also want to buy a glassbottle or two 🎨. Then it could be good to have something “safe” to put the glassbottle into, as well as carry in. So then I did cut up some plastic bottles and “created” some simple “gift- and carry bags” in plastic 🛍.

I have some “gift- and carry” plastic bags/ bottles ready in case someone is “dropping by” to buy a glassbottle or two 🛍

It’s a tiny way to reuse the plastic bottles, maybe not the best, but anyway better to throw them away.

It’s also possible to hang the glassbottles up on your clothesline too 😊. But on your own responsibility.

Look at this 😊. A bit cool,- isn’t it? 😊

I’m a bit better on reuse now at days then recycling, but now when there’s new recycling garbage boxes in the street it will be much easier to continue recycling too ♻️.

I have also planted a bit in the plastic bottles. Maybe there will come some more different kinds of onions, tomatoes and paprika in our kitchen during the next weeks? 🍅🌶

I like to find creative solutions and I like to be creative. And I slowly starting to realise that that’s probably a bit of my kind of lifestyle to do too- to be creative and find solutions 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Two different onions and tomatoes are planted,- and in just a couple of days I’m going to plant some paprika too 🌶

I haven’t been very good to recycling after I moved, but there wasn’t any recycling garbage boxes close by my home ♻️. But when it comes to reuse,- I try to do my best and find some kind of solutions on that one 😊.
