April Showers Bring May Flowers

A common saying is April Showers Bring May Flowers and boy did April bring some rainy days. I cried a lot more than normal this month. Shedding old memories and the death of self-sabotaging behaviors as I embraced the discomfort that accompanies the growth process. My times were filled with yoga, journaling, and maintaining and creating relationships with others. As I reflect on internalized emotions, I bring out the depths of my being. Some days this equated to anxiety while other days this correlated with basking in the sun as I go for a drive or sit outside with my dogs. I started reading again for fun and really prioritizing time for self-love because I have to come to learn that you can not pour from an empty cup. I cooked food that was good for the soul and healing for my body. I took the time to look within. This May I hope to continue applying these strategies in order to optimize my sense of self and, therefore, my ability to best serve others.

    Very nice post, Kiki. I understand the need to prioritize. Life seems to be a constant shuffling of things as the seasons change. At least it feels that way to me. I pray that May will bring you many flowers as opposed to those showers. It’s nice to have some dry eyes. May your journey become softer under foot. ☺ <3

    Great post!

    I like the way you expressed your emotions here. You practically expressed the feelings of so many people, here. I love your transparency too.

    Like you, I pray things get better and stay better…
