Fear is strong, but so are you...
I just thought maybe you needed to hear that today.
These are very uncertain times. Scary. Terrifying. Stop your heart, you don't remember how to breathe horrifying. But you know what. It WILL pass.
I'm writing this for myself right now more than anyone else. However, if this is what you need to read, please do.
I am terrified. I want to cry. For my family. For my friends who have lost countless gigs. For my friends that may, at this moment, be fighting this virus. For the world that is in a constant state of panic and fear because we don't even know which way is up. For me too.
But I am trying to breathe. Trying to send love. Trying to be a helper and look for the helpers so I, myself, don't feel so helpless.
I know the future seems daunting. Uncertain. Scary. But we truly, the majority of us, truly, are all in this together.
Be kind. Take some time for yourself. Eat well. Workout. Meditate. Create. Keep your body, mind, and spirit healthy.
Stock up on greens, fruits, veggies, protein. Resist the junk food, as tempting as it is (and it IS). Sit in silence. Be with yourself. Stop running from who you are and discover yourself instead.
But most importantly, however you need to do it, take care of yourself and your loved ones. Social distance and be patient.
We don't know what will happen. I am anxious too (BELIEVE ME), but I would rather say we overreacted (and I hate that word) than we didn't do enough, Stay in. Read. Netflix and Chill. Create something. Laugh. Cry. Take a walk. Breathe. We are so lucky; we just have to all be introverts for a while. And so, you know...it's not that bad to be one of us.
