... there are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats... ~ Albert Schweitzer
Today hasn't been a good day.
I have anxiety coursing thru my veins, exasperated by dealing with having to go outside, grocery shopping and people who still have no concept of respect and the necessity for safety protocols, while abusing a cashier for doing her job.
Try as I might, I couldn't stop tears from forming and a sob from catching in my throat when I got home... Frustration and anger. Ultimately, feeling unsafe because of other people's ignorant and blatant idiocy.
It whipped me out.
All plans I had for the day have been curtailed because all I can do right now to recenter myself, to get grounded in the present and ease the anxiety is rest.
So rest it is.
And I make no apologies for it either.
My Stash loves his Momma so resting looks like this chez moi.
Moments earlier, he showered me with wet nose kisses and an abundance of loving happy purrs.
For a brief moment, I forgot to worry or how the effects this mornings encounter at the grocery store triggered my ptsd.
I accept that today isn't the best day.
I respect and honour my nervous system's need for avoidance during these challenging times.
And I gladly accept Universal Source's flow of love in the form of two beautiful cats who love me in good times and bad, without judgment or conditions.
Stay safe and healthy y'all.
Some days just be like that.
That's perfectly okay.
