I’m gonna be real here. This quarantine has me anxious and depressed. I want to go hang out with my friends. I want to go back to work. Yes, I am working. But I miss my actually office. I want to go shopping. I want to go out for dinner. I want to visit my parents.
So, this is what I look like with day two hair and makeup. Haven’t showered. Spent 2 hours this morning on TikTok and about 45 minutes staring out the window. I’ve eaten all the junk food I’ve wanted since Friday afternoon when I had a tiny meltdown. Thank goodness for my friends. I was able to talk through some crap and formulate a plan.
1 – I need to stop eating all the junk.
2 – I bought some herbal supplements that I’m going to try.
3 – I will reach out to my friends when I need to talk.
4 – I will take a walk at least 3 times a week.
5 – I am going to start a self care journal.
6 – I will take time for myself when I need it and not feel guilty.
The moral of the story is: SELF CARE should be my top priority right now. I cannot be the mom, fiancée, friend, or employee I need to be if I don’t fill my own cup up first. This is where I have been going wrong. I am not putting my own needs first. Therefore, I am a mess and it affects every aspect of my life.
So starting today, I’m going to care more about myself and less about what everyone thinks. I am going to be authentic. I am going to get back to being me.
