Hey, beautiful souls!! So excited to be putting out my first blog :) I am so proud of myself that I decided to initiate this platform in the midst of all this chaos. With that being said, it is only right that I give a little insight on how to find peace amidst the chaos. I don't have it all together yet, but you gotta start somewhere, so bear with me as I work toward creating useful resources for you all.
This pandemic has definitely slowed down a lot of our usual activities. We are limited to the number of people we can come in contact with and invertedly the way we interact with people. Being more within our own dwellings has resulted in an extended period of inactivity which can lead to depression.
Many of us, at times, regret how entitled we felt towards simple pleasures and conveniences we had readily available and previously taken for granted. However, I use these thoughts as an awakening opportunity to discover and challenge myself to create new norms and fulfilling habits. I strongly encourage you all to try and do the same. There will be better days, so let's direct our focus on creating a better version of ourselves for when the world opens back up.
We have all encountered so many obstacles and have been presented with unique difficult emotions, during this unconventional time. I happened to find joy and peace in this chaos; by being grateful in the current moment I am in. It is time for us to reclaim our energy and make changes in the areas of our lives that we can control.
The only consistent thing we have at this time is ourselves. No one knows the best way to overcome this pandemic, but we can all overcome these tribulations and unload negative baggage we picked up along the way. We can all evolve during this hibernation. Be proud you made it this far and remember to be gentle with yourself!
