I cannot even overstate how crazy 2018 has been both personally and professionally. In the WORLD. Things are so nuts I’m reading my horoscope daily. Wearing my diffuser bracelet 24/7. And sometimes just plain scream as I listen to the news.
This past week was full of people I know and strangers alike disclosing trauma to me. I was holding space and holding my breath each day, uncertain as to what awaited me.
Life was a lot every day last week.
In times like these, the best investment I can make in myself is to divest from other people, places and things.
So this week I kind of checked out…
Instead, I talked to my best sisters. Spent time with all my children and grandchildren. Went on a date with my husband. It felt good to prioritize them in my day in some way. Some days it was just a text. Other days it was spending an hour on the phone conspiring to take over the world.
I also got back to my podcasts and General Hospital and saw the Netflix original, Nappily Ever After.
In times like these, I cannot do what others need and want me to do.
In times like these, I have to spend intentional time alone.
In times like these, I need to put my eyes on my people.
In times like these, I need to laugh.
In times like these, I need to send people to voicemail.
In times like these, I need to sleeeeeeeeeeep.
So, for those looking for the profound this week. I’ve got nothing. This week was a week that I am grateful to have survived.
Here’s to next week which is next month and all the potential it holds.
