“To slow down, be still, and learn to be okay with myself as I am.”
Boy that’s a hard one. Work has not slowed down at all. In fact it’s been busier than ever.
I have been working a lot of hours because I really don’t have anything else to do. I really need to stop that and take time for myself to reflect.
I need to realize my worth. I am not someone to be taken lightly.
I am someone to be valued. Of course this is just for future reference, because it’s really hard to do anything and remain 6 feet apart from people.
I need to be OK as I am now, in this place, in this space.
I need to stop trying to change myself to suit other people. Just embrace the introverted, weird, nerdy, a little crazy, a bit kinky, totally awesome person that G-d created. If people don’t like it, walk. Preferably the other way. I will not accept anything or anyone less than I deserve.
I will hug myself, take care of myself, and do things that resonate with my soul. I will continue to meditate, pray, read, play my keyboard, listen to music loudly and frequently, and just keep in touch with my friends and family.
But I will not be the first one to reach out so frequently in the future. I think that I will just take a little break for a while to see who reaches out to me.
