After I’ve been in a dark mood for a while, I can always tell when I’m beginning to feel better, because I begin to practice what the wonderful Havi Brooks calls Very Interior Design. Among other things, I start focusing on all the little day-to-day things that I like, all the little aesthetic choices that I make just for me. I start treating myself as both the artist and the work of art, and I paint myself with loving attention and care.
Oh, and my sweetie left a surprise Toblerone bar on my computer keyboard for me to find. That was really lovely.
