September 25, 2020

on our way to the end of the world feeling refreshed & grateful. I woke up yesterday, opened instagram & did not feel called to consume the thoughts & energy of others. even though I have 100% curated a feed full of inspiring, real & authentic humans — I needed time to be with my own thoughts. it wasn’t about them, it was about me.

instead of scrolling & taking in how everyone else was doing I took the day to check in with myself. how do I feel? what do I need? what would make me feel good?

post IUD life has been crazy. living out of suitcases has been frustrating. the apartment search has left us exhausted. but being able to truly listen to & honor my needs yesterday — it gives me so much faith & so much hope that I am on the right path. that I’m doing the work.

usually when I’m stressed from my own life, I numb it — I dive into the lives of those I follow on social media. it’s really easy to get lost in someone else’s reality when your own feels hard.

so today, I invite you all to ask yourself — what do I need? listen without expectation. honor without judgement.

& have a great day!
