Hi, how is your mental health lately? How are you handling this last Mercury in Retrograde? It has been rough over here! I have been struggling mentally and emotionally and that is causing little W to have very big feelings daily too.
Hubby has been super sensitive with how I have been feeling and more patient with the babe too. He gave me some time to myself Sunday to work on a project I have in the works. He also gave me yesterday morning to myself. He cleaned, he did dishes, he cooked dinner and all without me asking him. It was exactly what I needed!
So today, I woke up refreshed and mentally ready to take on the day. Good thing because I had a work meeting this afternoon! W and I went to the library today for some story and sing time which was so fun! It was so nice to wake up and feel like I can take on the day. To feel like I had a plan and I can go through with that plan. Sometimes I question if I can do it and most of the time I don’t.
Truth is, my brain tells me a whole list of excuses to stay home. It is okay to stay home and miss today, it won’t matter to W. I don’t know how to act anymore socially because of Covid and I was already awkward enough. I am scared that we will be exposed to Covid. It is so hard to push past those thoughts and do it. I am going to do my very best this week to do everything I want and see how it goes.
So my challenge to you during this retrograde period is this: do all the things. Even if it makes you uncomfortable. Retrograde is only until the 18th, you can do it. I am going to do it for the next two weeks and see how I feel. Maybe it will help my confidence in going out. I hope you find the confidence you need to do the things that scare you. Even if it’s going into a crowd and that makes you uncomfortable. Start small and go bigger. Or just do the small everyday things everyday. You can do it and so can I!
