ASMR…Have you heard of it? I recently discovered there is a whole community online concerning asmr. It’s not a new phenomenon, but it is newly “named”. I stumbled upon it by accident while looking for makeup tutorials on youtube. A woman was opening a plastic bag of cotton pads, and that was it! I thought it was going to be a “haul” video, or a review on a product. Nope. Just opening the bag. I watched it…and listened…and was mesmerized. It sounds weird, but it is a wonderful form of relaxation. You have to be a little careful and discerning when searching for these types of videos. Believe it or not…there are some weirdos out there. 😉 I have 2 different channels that I watch. If you’ve heard of asmr or would like to learn more, leave me a comment.
Life hurts. Right now, I’m disappointed, discouraged, disheartened, and just plain sad. I don’t know if I’ll ever get back up again. You think your life will turn out a certain way, but it goes off on some wild, ugly ride…and throws you out, flat on your face. Or your stomach. Did you ever lie on a swing, on your stomach, when you were a kid…push off with your feet…soar in the air…then the swing would slide out from under you…and slammed you ,stomach first, in the dirt? You gasped and choked and groaned…but no air!! Finally…after you thought for sure you were dying…you breathed again. Well…I feel like I just hit the dirt. No air. I’m ready to breathe again.
