Peace and Blessings

I don’t know about you, but I am getting excited about what 2021 has to offer. As I navigate through any difficult season, I take time to reflect on lessons learned. Here are a few of my learning highlights:

Self-care is essential – COVID19 took the world by storm, to say the least. We’ve all had to make some adjustments. PreCovid19, my self-care regimen consisted of a few hours a month at the nail salon or getting a massage. Now, self-care has a more holistic approach. I’ve learned to sit with myself and sort my feelings. I’ve learned to really process how I feel and own it. I’ve even learned how to be more expressive with my feelings to others, as well.

Mental health matters – The stigma around mental health has been discussed more frequently in recent months. I’ve heard mental health professional reference COVID19 anxiety or Coronavirus Fatigue. There is something about people being isolated for extended periods of time that makes us crazy. People need people. I’ve learned that even something as simple as a walk in the park as people pass by or a phone call to an old friend can remedy some of that isolation.

Honor your boundaries – This one is a big deal. Honoring your boundaries allows you to stay in your happy place. Know when to say no and when to walk away. People who love you will still love you and respect your decisions.

Be patient with yourself – Nothing magnificent was built in a day. Allow yourself the same patience you give to others. You are designing this life. Edit it. Change it. Reevaluate it as often as is necessary for the outcome you want.

Let that thing go – Letting go of people, places, and things that add to your proverbial baggage is the new sexy. Let’s normalize forgiveness. It will certainly improve your outlook on life. You don’t need to make any public declarations. It’s not for public consumption. You can’t open new doors with 2 hand fulls of heavy old baggage.

Life is beautiful, but living is far better. Live your life with intentionality and in the place of peace that you deserve. There are only blessings in that place.

Now, get you some peace!
