HERMITAGE | My Home for Monday
I hermit often. I find it necessary if I am to function. I think it is the most essential tool in my self care toolbox. You can do yoga, meditate, visualize, smoke, take a bath, or any other relaxation method once you are away; whether it's holding up in your bedroom or 1000 miles away.
Being with yourself is always a true testament of how you are doing. On the solo drive to Phoenix I realized that my anxiety is a bigger factor in my life than I have given it credit for in the past. I realized I've been insecure and apathetic. I'm teetering between an empowering feeling of not giving a fuck and a scary feeling of indifference, hoping that my passion returns.
I realized this trip that I love war and peace, there is a battle inside of my head and it gets amplified in the world. I'm just doing my best to be my strongest alliance rather than enemy.
I need more than the average human to reset. Richer, deeper soil has to be unearthed if I am to grow and be fruitful. If I am to stay warm I must gather all of the wooden, splintered parts of myself and burn them. If I am to survive, I have to rekindle my flame. My only challenge is that I need a forest fire.
