When clouds cover your sunshine

Hello Loves! I’ve been working on some awesome creative projects for the summer/fall, and over the weekend I came up against a gnarly block that put me on pause and required some extra effort in personal development, self care, and deep healing. If you’re curious, here’s what my steps looked like: 1- Feel something unpleasant 2- Ask for help 3- Receive help 4- Accept help 5- Process unpleasantness 6- Heal a layer of self Thank you, Friends, for sharing your beautiful, kind, funny and cheerful words when I most needed them. Please know how powerful your words and your compassion are! I encourage you to be generous with them and share freely with the people you care about. Y’all know that I keep it real, and that means showing that even a little sparkly ray of sunshine like me gets covered in clouds now and then. And that It’s OK to not be perfect. It’s OK to be a little vulnerable. It’s OK to need and ask for support & validation. It’s OK to have a shit day, and it’s OK to trust in better days ahead- because they always do come. Yesterday was a tough day for me, and seeing your responses was very much a lifeline. So uplifting and a wonderful reflection of Light when I was deeeeeep in my darkness. That’s the thing with what I call “Transformational Positivity”… sometimes it looks like being able to battle a nasty bout of depression by asking for what you need, and trusting that you actually will receive it. If you are struggling today, please reach out. You do not need to suffer alone; you are Loved, you are needed, and you matter more than you may ever fully understand. 💖🦋
