Quarantine & Recovery

A couple of weeks into this quarantine, and to be honest – I am struggling. Initially my introvert heart was very content having a valid excuse to go NO WHERE except to the barn and back… but the days are getting long. I’m finding myself desperately wanting to revert back to coping mechanisms that are extremely ineffective, and struggling to find motivation to use healthy ones. I am also realizing that the lack of alone time is wearing on me. I love my husband and I truly am loving the opportunity to spend so much time together; 24/7 though, it’s hard.

All of this to say that I’ve been thinking a lot about recovery and what it looks like during this pandemic. A few things I’ve been trying to remind myself…

  • It’s okay to not be okay.
  • This too will pass.
  • Constant productivity is not necessary.
  • I am still worthy of recovery.
  • Recovery still needs to be a priority.
  • O N E  D A Y  A T  A  T I M E

Be well, take care of YOU, and please give yourself some grace.
