I am so miserable right now. My new years resolution this year is simply ... Self Love - I want to devote this year to being healthy and happy. And for me that means, no sugar, no caffeine, no alcohol and no smoking but as of right now, self love is kind of feeling like self hate!
I thought the sugar withdrawal would be bad, but holy cow, the caffeine withdrawal is even worse! I feel like someone smashed a guitar over my head. I'm so used to waking up in the morning and enjoying my morning coffee or relaxing in the afternoon to a warm cup of chai. But now I wake up to a throbbing headache and a sluggish demeanor.
I know it sounds extreme, but I'm only doing this because I tend to get extremely anxious whenever I drink caffeine and go through some crazy mood swings because of my sugar intake. Also the idea of "needing" to have something in the morning doesn't feel right to me. I shouldn't need to have coffee or I shouldn't need to eat dessert after a meal.
So I'm looking forward to the silver lining and once all these withdrawal symptoms go away, I will be a healthier person. It's been almost a week now and I do feel a little better. But the lack of sugar has left me feeling a little emotional. Today I had an incident with the phone company and actually burst into tears because they had me on hold forever and kept transferring my calls back and forth. Yeah, I might have overreacted just a bit ...
Anyway, here's another one of my characters from the Imaginism Workshop.
It's my Candy BasketBall Girl!
I'm still working on my next music playlist, only have 5 songs on that but will post it here soon. Right now I'm totally obsessed with this Indie Bluegrass band called Punch Brothers (heard about them from Conan). I loveeee drawing while listening to their album. Here's one of their songs. Enjoy!
