If everyone was treated the same, you would be scared to fall asleep on a train after having a beer.
I haven’t felt like making art lately. Just cbf! And when I haven’t made art in a while I get this looming anxiety that I haven’t made art which makes me not want to make art and the cycle continues. But today when I was elbow deep in compost saying hello to worms and getting dirty, I decided that I would make something. It’s by no means a masterpiece, but hey at least I followed through. Show me your half cooked art that’s an attempt to get back in the swing of things x 🦠
— I acknowledge the Dharawal / Tharawal people as the traditional custodians of the land on which I reside, and more widely, First Nations people as the owners of Australian land. I acknowledge the elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
May 26 is Sorry Day, I am remembering the stolen generations and stolen land. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal Land. I acknowledge the Dharawal/ Tharawal people as the traditional custodians of the land on which reside. I acknowledge the elders past, present and emerging. Today and every day, I am sorry.
How’s everyone holding up out there? About a year ago I started listening to Terrible, Thanks for Asking which had a great guest on there. She was a little girl with wisdom beyond her years, who had what’s called an anxiety box. In it were little treasures that make her happy, along with these mindful questions.
What does anxiety feel like?
Break down the experience you’re having in your body.
What are you worried about?
Think objectively about what’s making you jazzed.
What will make you happy?
Is it something that you can tackle head on? Or should you let go, move on and do something you know makes your heart feel whole until you’re ready to deal with it later?
I think everyone needs their own Anxiety Box, but maybe it should be renamed to ‘Happy Box’. Hope you’re coping ok out there, stay safe.
