Tomorrow is September. My brain can hardly comprehend this fact. But I am leaving one month for another, on a high note.
With all the unrest going on, I hope someone gets a smile or chuckle out of these. Laughter is good medicine.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ―Mahatma Gandhi
“I think the idea of a ‘mental health day’ is something completely invented by people who have no clue what it’s like to have bad mental health. The idea that your mind can be aired out in twenty-four hours is kind of like saying heart disease can be cured if you eat the right breakfast cereal. Mental health days only exist for people who have the luxury of saying ‘I don’t want to deal with things today.’ and then can take the whole day off, while the rest of us are stuck fighting the fights we always fight, with no one really caring one way or another, unless we choose to bring a gun to school or ruin the morning announcements with a suicide.” ―David Levithan
**I disagree with the majority of this quote. I find it bordering on ignorant, but I can also see how someone else might view it differently than I do. Let me be clear though; mental health days aren’t a form of “privilege”. They are a form of self-care.**
