The Holiday Hump
We have made it to yet another holiday season that will greatly be impacted by the pandemic. While celebrating means more than ever, as does safety. I will often reflect in isolation and smaller gatherings. While it can feel lonely or less than festive, it's important to remember that this IS a moment in time... it WILL change and better days ARE ahead.
I have found gratitude in the little things helps to put what's most important into perspective for the long haul. Exercise you thankfulness daily. Your outlook will grow in hope for days to come!
What you say matters!
Daily Affirmations are clutch! They can effectively push you into victory. What you speak over yourself, your day and the tasks at hand can determine the outcome before you've even begun. Use your words to your advantage and speak positively over all the concerns you! You've got this!
And here I thought it was "cuffing season", lol...
This period of time in my life has really given me a deeper perspective of my life, my circle and what's really important. I didn't have many friends starting out and now, I am almost completely friendless.
While painful, the growth was and is necessary.
Never be afraid to stand for YOU. Sometimes the unneeded stress that others may bring to your life is detrimental to your overall health and can be easily remedied by removal. Yes, it's easier said than done but wanting the best for YOU is the life goal. Go ahead and say, "It's not you, it's me." and move on. Your peace will thank you!

There are so many misconceptions surrounding therapy. Often, so many wait until something's gone terribly wrong before they seek help.
Truth is, Therapy is good for ALL states of mind. We all need to be heard and can benefit from an assistant helping us unpack our feelings; both good and bad.
Did you know that most employers will pay for several weeks of therapy with a professional?
Whether maintenance or aid, therapy can sometimes be the hope and positive progress we need to release the unneeded.
There's no easy way to deal with loss but the reality is we MUST DEAL. I spent my earlier years sweeping my emotions and bottling hurt and pain. As I've grown, I realized that this is not only unhealthy but hurts even worse when reality hits that a loved one is no longer around.
To be great at grieving is simply allowing yourself to experience all of the emotions that come with loss. Give yourself opportunity to feel and create a safe space to heal. There is so must strength is acknowledgment and you be thankful you didn't wait to deal with the emotions.
