Hey friends. I just wanted to come and say something super quick that’s been on my heart. This time has its own anxiety; don’t add to it by thinking you *have* to be productive, create something, start a business, workout round-the-clock. It is great if you are, but if all you did today was get out of bed—that’s something to be proud of.
I know I said that you can use this time to start something you’ve been putting off, or start something new, but if you don’t, that is 115% OK. There are enough people out there posting workout videos, telling you to do this or that with your time. If you don’t feel like it, don’t beat yourself up. I repeat: don’t beat yourself up. I literally told myself this very thing the other night during my date with God. This time is hard enough as it is, I refuse to beat myself up because I’m not doing what social media is telling me I should be doing. If I don’t get my workout in today, so be it. If I want to watch the same movie I’ve seen 55 times already, I will. I will not add to my anxiety by feeling bad about not doing what other people think I should be doing. And you shouldn’t, either. You don’t have to do everything, or anything, if you don’t want to. If you want to curl up on the couch and binge watch a TV show, then do that. Whatever your body and your heart are telling you to do, that brings you comfort, do it. The last thing we need to be doing is beating ourselves up in a time like this.
You are already enough. You are not alone. Stay safe and healthy, friends.
What I’m listening to:
“Better Days,” One Republic (because I love them and this song is perfect for this time)
“That’s Just The Way The World Goes Round,” John Prine
“Live It Up,” Colbie Caillat
