Tired and overwhelmed in 2020

Who else has been feeling tired and overwhelmed, like 2020 has been going on for about 20 years or so? As much as we tout self care as a means to deal with Stress, Anxiety and our overall mental health, so much of our regular routine has gone out the window. Haircuts, pedicures, massages, yoga, getting together with friends, it seems like all our little luxuries are just a memory. But then we discovered state parks!

Halloween isn't the only scary thing this year

We don’t know if it is because of COVID and the fear that Halloween will be cancelled, but people are already decorating for Halloween and we are all for it! Bring on the early pumpkins even if we are still wearing shorts and killing mosquitoes, because honestly, Halloween is the BEST time of the year! Anytime people hand out chocolate is a GREAT DAY! Dressing up, seeing kids happy, fun makeup, decorations, and carving pumpkins makes us so happy.

National Suicide Prevention Month

September is National Suicide Prevention Month and every year around this time we think, are we doing enough, are we helping in this crisis and honestly, it never seems to be enough. We mourn every time we see a post where someone feels that they aren’t worthy enough, or strong enough, or brave enough to go on. There is such a fallacy that is spread regarding suicide, that those who commit suicide are cowards. Far from it, they were warriors that just couldn’t fight anymore.

Taking the time to check in with ourselves

We have made it to September! For those of us in the United States that means we have made it through six months of a Pandemic. Here is a quick recap: March, April, May and June, masks are the new fashion accessory, the Virtual School nightmare begins and plays out, Stay at Home Orders, doing every DIY project known to man or woman, you probably developed Insomnia, learned a whole lot of new recipes, senseless killings were perpetrated, and protests started.

 

Will we finally be the generation that says, “ENOUGH!” and finally does something?

Lovelies, another week, another shooting of an unarmed Black Man, more protests, more school at home, more hate, more violence...when does it all end? Exhaustion doesn’t even come close to describing how our soul aches. None of this is new, but all this senseless hate and violence should be relegated to dusty history shelves by now, not playing in real time on our screens.
