This week has been a lot. Next week? Also gonna be a lot.
Personally, I'll be honest with you; the fall of our Democracy has coincided with both a New Moon AND a regular surge of hormones, creating a vortex of sadness, anxiety and angst that I'm ill prepared to deal with. All I want to do is emotionally eat fried things and watch sad, but beautiful, movies that have happy endings.
I've been blowing off steam via Resistbot. Everyday. Keeping up to date with the impeachment.fyi newsletter so I don't have to subject myself to to the burning rage of CSPAN. And nesting. Constantly.
Frankly, I've been leaning into it, because self-care can take whatever form you need, and for me right now, it's form is a spotless kitchen and organized dresser drawers instead of a new set of Pinterest ads or a blog post. It's making sure my clients are cared for, but not forcing myself to put in a full day at my desk. It's American Chinese take-out instead of salads. It's the extra cup of coffee that I usually don't let myself have, and baking brownies and making potato soup because it makes the house smell good, and warm, and comforting. It's LOTS of TikTok.
Productivity has not been my goal, only staying busy, which is different.
I've got cozy bedrooms on the brain as I start laying out the next blog post in my mind as I'm doing all this busy work. All I know at this point is that this pin of a bedroom by Heidi Caillier is right on the money when it comes to inspiration.
