Breathing + Fan

Well, I was feeling disgusted and busted. It had been a hard few days, and I wanted to curl into a ball and cry. My life is good, mind you, but I was feeling the weight of several things and felt ill-equipped for the tasks ahead of me. Including writing.

Prior to my writing menu, I probably would’ve nurtured my funk, skipped writing, and then felt guilty for not writing. But that’s not what God wants for me, so He turned my attention to my writing menu, and I opted for my breathing app and a desk fan.

My breathing app has background nature sounds, so that, combined with my desk fan, had me feeling like I was in a cool grotto, instead of the scorcher that was actually outside. I felt better through the sounds and sensation of a cool breeze, and my breathing exercise calmed me down.

I approached my writing with a better mindset. And like I did previously, I wrote my disgusted and bustedness into my WIP. I did stop almost as soon as I reached my desired word count, but I reached my desired word count, which is a far cry from where I was before I turned on my app and fan.

So I give Breathing + Fan 12/10.
