Saturday Stories - Heavy

Have you ever thought about the things in life that weigh us down? Things that make us feel stuck and heavy.

It can be all sorts of things, both physical, mental and emotional. Life is really draining sometimes.

What do you do when you feel like that? Do you talk to people? Do you write, exercise, shop or something else?

I write. For me writing is cathartic. I write it down then forget about it. Once I've written about it it's gone. Often I'll write about something in an FFS Friday post and by the time the post is published I've erased the event from my mind. 

Some people find venting helps, but when does venting go too far? Tiger likes to vent but it gets to the point where I'm over hearing about it. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and move forward. Other things just aren't worth even getting upset over. 

As one of my favourite books says, "don't stress the small stuff (it's all small stuff)"

You know what's been weighing me down lately? My handbag. It just feels so full and heavy and I feel like it stops me doing things. Sounds crazy, but I feel so much better since I downsized my purse, keys and handbag, I feel lighter.
