Stuck inbetween the madness

Lately, there seems to be a sense of feeling unsure in the air. Another year of covid. People transitioning in jobs and relationships. Folks who have decided to move, whether away or get closer to loved ones. And yet it’s September again, a time of newness and fresh starts. So why does it feel a bit off for some?

Speaking for myself, I have a new role at my job, recently moved into a new apartment, and working on making new friends in the area (in my 30s, never an easy feat), and we’re going into another covid fall/winter where it’s less easy to be social than we’d like. It’s a lot at once, and it brings about multiple feelings and emotions at once.

Here’s the thing- we have to remind ourselves (and myself) that it’s one hundred percent okay to feel this way. It’s okay to allow ourselves to feel unsure and confused and wondering what this fall and winter will bring.

Advice I’m giving to myself:

  • take it in stride and one moment at a time
  • don’t try to tackle it all at once
  • take a moment to breathe, step away
  • write it out or talk it through with someone
  • focus on what i can control vs. what I can’t
  • if there isn’t motivation focus on the determination until the motivation returns

And in addition, I’m trying to remember how much I love fall/autumn and the feeling of this season. It’s my favorite, and I want to take the time to enjoy it rather than worry about things that take away from the happiness of the moment and today. Sounds very hallmark-y but true.

How about you? How are you viewing the season?

Until next time, #radiatedaily
