— we’re living in such crazy times right now + the biggest thing i’ve tried to do for myself is just allow myself to feel.
to grieve for all my couples + the other couples out there who have had to cancel / postpone their wedding days.
to cry over my cancelled honeymoon.
to feel scared over losing a stable paycheck.
to be frustrated at the vast amount of people who aren’t taking this seriously.
to be overwhelmed with loneliness + isolation.
to feel anxiety about the “not knowing” - what if lose someone i love from this?
to be okay with not being the most productive everyday.
to be at peace letting myself take a step back, breathe + do the things i need or want in a way i couldn’t before.
to not feel pressured to finish my newly designed guides or revamp my biz or crank out the podcast i’ve been wanting to work on just because i’m at home.
and not to feel guilty if i want too.
i’m on day 18 of quarantine and i’ve worked so hard to figure out what my new “normal” looks like right now. i’ve figured out how to integrate my life the best i can, prioritize my health but i still struggle with how to feel. probably because i’m somewhere messily in the middle of yoyo-ing back and forth. and i think that’s okay!! if you feel like you’re in the same boat, i just want you to know that you’re NOT alone! scared, stressed, overwhelmed, calm, focused - whatever feelings you’re feeling during this time, they’re completely valid. if you want to binge Tiger King in your pj’s and while eating Ben + Jerry’s (hello my Monday!) then do it! if you want to work from dawn to dusk building out a new website (shout out to my Tuesday!) then that’s okay too.
there’s no easy way to navigate the world right now. but i think the biggest thing right now is to be okay with where you’re at and to let yourself feel ALL of it. the highs, the lows, the messy middles. and be okay not feeling completely okay. 🖤
