Just a q & d craft diversion with #prismacolorartstix and an #embossingfolder
Why all the coloring on a weed feed? Because i've been dealing with a major depressive episode since my cat died. The antidepressant has crapped out and life is sucking the ass of something drastically unpleasant. I've survived these, i know i can this time too but fucking hell it's wearing me out this time around. .
There are a lot of ways to improve life while living through the shit puddles in which we all occasionally find ourselves. Engaging in pleasurable activities helps build up your resilience. Coloring and drawing helps get that accomplished. It's not the art I'd like to be doing...my brain isn't optimized at this point. It is creative work, I'll use it in a card probably. Useful enough. And most importantly it gives me a break from all the intrusive depression thoughts after a few minutes, and afterwards that peaceful feeling persists for a time. .
Find a pleasurable activity. Engage your #willingness. Go do that thing for a bit. Ten minutes. An hour. Everyday. You deserve to be free from suffering. And I encourage you to be willing to play. There's no requirement to actually enjoy whatever you're doing...in fact anhedonia is a symptom of depression, that's the freaking problem - nothing is fun! So don't put that pressure on yourself, you may or may not actually get the pleasure vibe from what you do. The benefit is that you'll feel less shitty and the more you can behave differently by letting yourself get into a mindful flow state the less depression will pwn you. #depressionselfcare .
I wish my ig was full of hikes and cats and cooking and weed like before. But for now it's about a smaller focus. I'm here on the 'gram to share what my life with cannabis looks like.
