Scenes from the Last Couple of Weeks

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I’m not going to lie you guys… the last two weeks have been rough, both mentally and physically… I came down with what can only be described as the plague last Tuesday, and have literally been 100% useless ever since. Whatever this is/was (pretty sure it’s the flu) totally knocked me flat on my back and I am so behind on absolutely everything in life. Throw in complete social isolation, and lots of grey winter days, and my mental health – well, it hasn’t been great. So much so that I actually went back in my archives and made this my desktop background just to casually, and regularly, remind myself that my blessings are still abundant, and there is still lots to be thankful for. I know it’s silly, but it’s often the little things that help me when everything feels bleak.

One thing I know for sure: I will never, ever, take my health for granted again. I’m hoping that this can be a lesson to all of us to put ourselves higher on our to-do lists going forward. I’ve always believed that the universe gives us exactly what we need, just when we need it, and it feels pretty unacceptable to me that I required the flu to kick all other flu’s asses in order to make myself a priority and stop to take care of myself.

  1. Oh my goodness! You’ve been sick for so long! Hope things are looking up. Kick that flu!

    Sorry to hear that you were so sick, but very glad that you’re on the mend, J! That master bath looks like it’s going to be spectacular!
