Adjusting to the New Normal

Like many of you, our life has drastically changed due to current events in the world. We’re no longer a 2 person income, I’ve been staying home with our toddler. Life is ever changing, and I’m trying to keep up and make the best of it all! Sometimes it’s easier said than done.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss my office, or seeing our regular patients, or laughing it up with my crazy work family. Olivia asks me daily if it’s time to go to school and see her teacher and amigos.

I’m a home-body by nature, I love lounging and being cozy at home, cuddled up with Olivia and Johnny and reading a good book. I love slowly sipping on my coffee, waking up at an easy pace, and watching the sun rise.

However given the current situation, doing those things have been a little more difficult. Just mentally, my head space was not in a good state. I was filled with anxiety and it wasn’t allowing me to be present and enjoy the things I normally do. I was focused on the “what if’s” and the uncertainty of it all, instead of appreciating the present and finding the good in all of this. I’m sure some of you can relate. I could feel myself falling into a funk, and I was not about to let myself do that!

What’s really helped during this time has been diving into prayer. Reading and studying my bible, and having those conversations with God. He’s given me a sense of peace, and comfort.

I pray everyone is hanging in there during these uncertain times. Praying for those who’ve been affected by this in any way.🙏🏼❤️
