I happened to come across this recently:
alk to yourself a lot…you’re the best one available for you
And that made me sigh in relief. For I’m not to be titled crazy for talking to myself most of the time.
Such talk sessions clears my mind and gives clarity to my thoughts.
Also it’s a big help when I want to rant and no one is nearby. Just try it…so therapeutic.
Another thing that’s therapeutic is talking to my plants. Ok…I’ve a tulsi plant and a money plant only. Even though there’s space for a few more, the sunlight that comes to the balcony is not enough for other plants to grow. But that’s ok…if I can do well with these plants I consider myself a good gardener…he he 😉
Morning times, when the Sun is just coming out, when its lovely to bask in the golden sunlight for its rich Vitamin D – that’s the best time I attend to my plants too. Watering them, removing the dried leaves, cuddle talking to them – its just a serene experience. It calms my mind and makes me rejuvenated in a matter of minutes. And you see your plants growing green and lovely with all the love you shower.
Many times I tell my girls “Kuzhandhaikku thaneer vittiya?” – which literally means “Did you give water to the baby?”
So forget what the world thinks of you…actually they may not be thinking of you at all…
Just make time for yourself…talk to your best friend – your own self…
Also talk to plants…
