How’s everyone doing? Just a reminder that it’s okay to feel down & it’s okay to reach out to someone if you’re not in a good headspace right now. Asking for help doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you’re brave. I’m here for you… xo
… if you’re looking at this, I probably love you… so please take 1000mg of powdered vitamin C each day… #stayhealthy xo
… feel free to message me if you want to know what other supplements I take daily… xo
… I’m reminded how the most troublesome, disastrous scary time in my life proved to be life-changing in the most beautiful way on the other side… a refocus on what’s really important… slowing down, self care, listening to music – I mean really listening to music, like marveling at the genius of Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” genius glissando that starts the song instead of ending it – love that!… and a reminder that we already have all we really need with good food in the fridge, a well equipped kitchen, a good dog, warm bed, project we’re passionate about, supply of blank canvases, people to encourage & love, touching tree barks, going barefoot in the grass, and finally slowing down enough to marvel at the beauty in a simple moth that catches my attention tonight while walking my dog in the dark… so much more important and joy-filled than catching the latest coronavirus briefing video.
… picking up lunch today for a hungry group of employees working hard to serve during the coronavirus crisis… thank you, Mayberry’s!…
