How y’all doin’ ?

How y’all doin’ ?

I don’t even know where to begin and to be honest I wrote. two whole blog post from start to finish and deleted them. Maybe it was meant for me to write them. Maybe I needed to write them for some sort of release or to just get my thoughts and feelings down. I don’t know, but it was super tough deciding what to post, how to word things and even what photos to use… everything.

I know for sure that I didn’t want to make this post solely about the crazy happenings in this world, I think the media does enough of shoving that in our faces, but I will say briefly that my family has been hit very hard from the start of 2020; both on my mother’s side and my father’s side. Those of you who follow me on social media definitely know we have got through it and peaked, came down and coasted for a few weeks and then we were hit again. Honestly, I’ve just been trying to figure out the best ways to navigate these changes in the world: grieving, isolation, sleeplessness, emotions. I’ve been trying to process all of this while also trying to stay positive and creative, it isn’t easy. We are all effected by the turmoil and changes happening now and I send positive vibrations and good thoughts to my tribe and your families.

I promise my next post won’t be so brief and melancholy. If you know me then you know how upbeat and enthused I usually am about life. I was super positive about 2020 as you probably read in my 20/20 vision post in the beginning of this year .

I really just want to know how you all are holding up during these times? Is transitioning easy for you? Have you found a routine to help you stay calm and sane? Are you struggling to be creative like many are or is it easy for you to tune your surrounding out and stay focused? How are you coping? How have you been effected by everything happening? I’m genuinely concerned. Let me know in the comments. I’d love to chat. It also feels great to know we/re not alone and we’re in this together!

Until next time,

Peace. Love. Style.
