remedies for a broken heart
Hello dear reader,
Good afternoon! What a joy it was to wake up this morning to the cool morning breeze gently grazing my skin. I hope you're having a nice day even despite the grueling heat. I hope you're making yourselves cool and delicious drinks and eating fresh summery vegetables and food.
I'm sorry I didn't deliver any newsletter in the last two weeks. I have been so busy with stuff. Life is changing for the good and I'm trying to change for the good. I needed some time for that, but I'm back now and very excited about everything. Last night I had a dream where I was sitting on a window sill and watching the city get drenched in the rain. Upon waking up, I somehow turned my dream into an inspiration for this post. I don't know why it reminded me of this, I guess its because earlier this week I was speaking to my very beautiful friend who told me she really dreaded watching it rain when she felt sad. So here's my two cents about how you can cure a sad little jaan (meaning 'life’, but I'm using jaan here to mean soul hehe) on sad days.
be angry and let go. call your girlfriends and bake it all away. bake till you can’t stand it anymore. eat your cakes till you can’t eat anymore.
blast music in your room without a care in the world and move your body and paint something on the walls and write angry and unhinged lyrics on the back of your door.
make yourself a cup of strong honey lemon ginger mint tea and savor every sip of it.
go crazy with a new found skincare routine and the hair cutting and the coloring.
read sylvia plath’s journals and some stimulating literature on your bathroom floor and be floored and start maintaining a daily journal to record your thoughts and your breakdowns and then learn from your patterns.
light candles and incense sticks and give yourself that well deserved aroma therapy.
gaze at the moon and the stars and the clouds.
go on a cleaning spree because it relaxes you like anything.
cook with your mother, talk to a favorite aunt. ask them about their experiences as young women.
“park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me. park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me. park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me.”
walk under the evening sky and walk until your limbs get sore. Then go home, have a hearty meal and sleep like a baby.
join the occult. not even joking.
get super into spirituality! who doesn't enjoy good smelling candles and incense and ritualistic baths and flowers and most importantly, peace of mind?
And after you’ve done all these things, look yourself in the mirror and tell yourself how strong and worthy and beautiful and unstoppable you are. give yourself a kiss and trust time and active effort to heal you. Also, EAT HEALTHY AND STAY HYDRATED. YOU BETTER! <3
My aggressive and crushing love to all jaans feeling sad and you just know that I'm here manifesting my nerves out for happiness and good vibes to flood your life because I see your struggle and I root for you and I love you. 😠❤️
Here's a song for you and only you!
Love and a big bear hug,
