Mataku tak mau berdusta. Ya karena aku memilih untuk tidak seperti mereka. Aku cuma ingin menikmati #sunset berikutnya bersamamu. Nanti. Nikmatilah ini dulu. Ya ?
Good evening, love. My very best prayer from here until you come home and hold me so right. And until i fell asleep in your strong arms. 💕

Inspired by @jesswardphoto #realtalk post last week.
I’ve been terribly bad at looking after myself the last few years fam.
Late last year my stress levels peaked to the point that I couldn’t consume food or liquid without being physically sick.
My initial thoughts were that finally my long suspected lactose intolerance had come to light, or that worse maybe there was something “medical”. After bloods, pokes, prods, all of the scans on all those machines that have acronyms for names and a camera down my throat - nothing was found. Good news right? “I’m fine”. Except I wasn’t.
The worst part was I didn’t notice my stress levels peak. And, for my own sense of pride and independence, worse again was the people who made my coffee most mornings, noticed before or more than I did. People who are genuinely truly lovely, but I wouldn’t have perhaps said knew me well enough to “know me”. Two things happened at this point.
The first was feeling miserable and flat for two days, barely speaking a word to anyone, I was annoyed and disappointed at myself for spending about $1500, when a simple conversation over a $6 Black cold brew with a twist of orange (I drink the good/hipster stuff) would have solved everything.
And the second was accepting that stress is a non tangible, but very real aspect of our lives.
So, I have had to force myself to learn to relax. Sounds like something we all know how to do but the reality is I don’t, and never have been able to sit still. I don’t know how to relax.
But the ocean helps. And yoga has helped. And learning to say hi to new people, and make the effort to stay close to the old people has helped.
If you’re out there, and you’ve bothered to read this far, I hope you’ve got your methods that work for you. If you don’t, please look for them. You’re worth it.
I’m a sunrise person. It always reminds me that beginnings are beautiful. That no matter how long the night was, sun will shine over again and will continue to light us. Sunrise is a promise of tomorrow, a promise that is always kept.
