The past few weeks have been so strange, a roller coaster full of amazingly exciting moments and contrastingly low, sad ones. All of it has led to feeling really overwhelmed and anxious. My first instinct in times like these is to call everyone I know, make tons of plans, and make myself so busy that I don’t have time to think about what’s going on. A pretty obvious case of professional grade avoidance.
But, I was once told that when life it too much, to treat yourself like you would treat a baby (or kitten/puppy). You wouldn’t take a sensitive little baby out into the cold and overwhelm them with noise and cocktails. Instead, you should take baths, eat oatmeal, and get wrapped up in a blanket.
It sounds cheesy, but it’s one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received. So, instead of going out this weekend, I’m spending a couple quiet days upstate. Reflecting. Resetting. Treating myself like a baby. xx
