11.2 | coping during covid

it`s been almost eight months that we`ve been dealing with covid-19 and its madness. i know we`re all sick & tired of the havoc it has been wreaking on our lives. a lot has been going on and there seems to be no end or solve to this madness. during my time working from home, i`ve been trying to do small things that bring a little joy and comfort to my world while also keeping safe. i have been struggling mentally, so these really help me to climb out of this funk.

9.28 | be patient with yourself

everyday is a a good day to be patient with yourself. i feel like i rush myself all the time to get things done because i don`t want to waste time but... sometimes, things just take time. when you rush, you miss things. you experience burn out faster. you can easily slip into a depressive state and exhaust your body/brain. it`s just so much better to take it easy, i promise.

9.21 | do you, stay true

blogging nowadays seems to be a dying art, but i find so much peace in writing and viewing the aesthetics of a written blog. i`ve been blogging on this platform since my sophomore year of college before it blew up, became greatly monetized + slowly started fading in the background because of social media. you`d think i would have been a huge influencer by now for how long i`ve been doing this, but i never saw money coming out of it and i wasn`t interested in monetizing (well.. sometimes lol). it was like an escape for me and i shared lots of emotional and personal stories on here before transitioning into a more fashion-centric platform.
