Yesterday was LONG.
So today we're doing it slow.
A little extra art time and music time for the babes
And a little extra coffee time for the mama!
Thankful for my brain boosting, healthy fat and collagen loaded coffee Kreme to help me start this day out right! ☕️☀️
Happy Thursday friends!! May your day be fantastic!✨
I used to think I was just introverted.
I didn’t leave my apartment unless I needed groceries or it was Sunday and I went to church.
I worked from home. I stayed there all the time.
Introverts still like being around people. They just RECHARGE when they are alone.
Isolating yourself isn’t a form of introversion, it is a way to fake control out of fear.
Fear of judgement. Fear of rejection. Fear of scrutiny.
If you’re isolating yourself so that you can control what people think of you, because they never see anything but your Sunday best, or what you put out on social media, you’re not being introverted. You’re hiding from fear.
Look deeply inside, are you staying home because you love being home? Or are you staying home because you fear what people will think of you if you leave?
I want to encourage you to face that fear. 99% of the time, we are the only ones who judge ourselves. I have never once looked at someone and said “wow she is a mess, why is she out of the house?” Have you?
Now I know, that I am truly introverted. I do recharge best when I am alone. But I am also suffering from fear, and a need to control what others think of me. So I am taking steps, to release that false control, by putting myself out there like this. By sharing where I am, authentically and with real vulnerability.
I urge you to take one small step. Take your kids to the park. Even just for 20 minutes. Don’t get yourself all dolled up, go as you are.
Be you. Unafraid. Be Brave💕
It’s a rainy day here in Seattle and I really just want to stay in bed. 😴
But I have mustered enough energy to build more walls on the popsicle house I’m building with my youngest son and I even showered. Getting ready to go get my hair done. #slowday#newhair#familytime
Rain is the prettiest music for me today. It's beautiful. It slows down the tempo, creates some space for thoughts, invites melancholy and reminds that the summer is soon over. And actually I don't mind. Autumn has it's blessings too.
