I know it has been a while since I’ve had a heart-to-heart with you.
And not to make excuses, but life has been hard lately. Yes, I am going to Spain and I am very excited for it, BUT that doesn’t mean everything is sunshine and rainbows over here.
In January, I lost my uncle. It was a hard loss for my family and it’s a loss that we can’t even begin to navigate. He passed in the hospital, and due to COVID we weren’t allowed to see him which meant we never got to say goodbye.
A week later I learned that the business I have been working for the last seven years is closing permanently in March (like in a month). At the end of next month, my life will be completely different. I will have no steady income, no coworkers, and no more commute.
The same week I found out about my job, I learned that I have high cholesterol and have to loose about five to ten pounds and go on a diet.
It has been overwhelming for me to deal with all of these things all at once. I have honestly been clinging to all the good things in my life to help get me through. When things feel “too much” for me I always try to list five things I am grateful for and it always makes me feel better.
If you are going through a tough time in your life, please know you are not alone.
