Hey there, I am back, and this is day 7 of blogging consistently. I have planned my content, but lately, I have been taking a new approach to life and how I do things. I pride myself in putting things on my platform I agree with, today's topic was not planned initially but needed. I could not bring myself to post a product review when I am not in the mood. Typically I am often in sync with many of my followers, and today, I just felt a bit funky. I have been feeling a bit exhausted, mentally. I miss my friends and human interaction, miss getting dressed for events, and having a clear boundary between my home and work. I feel like every day is running into the next, the weekends are not the same, and I am just sick of everything. But then I am forced to look at things through the lens of gratitude. I am healthy, hell, I am one of the very few people in America who still has a job. I can work safely from my home's comfort, and I am not forced to be without anything.
Reading those things, it almost makes me feel horrible for complaining. But there is still some truth in frustration at how things have changed drastically. We are going through a pandemic, and this is possibly our new normal. The only thing we can do is be aware of the importance of our mental health. Making sure we are taking the necessary time to breathe, pouring more into ourselves. I always tell my friends, "You are only as good to others as you are to yourself." Put the cup down child and refill. It is empty. With that being said, I challenge you to find peace and solace in this whirlwind of chaos.
