It’s May and it’s my birthday week. Was it different because of quarantine?! It sure was, but I’ve got to tell you the truth friends, it was also my favorite birthday to date.
I didn’t have to go anywhere to feel loved, because it just kept showing up at my front door.
Then the very next day after my birthday, I was able to return to the salon and work for the first time since March.
So of course I was jumping for joy and excited as all get out and had to make a silly Tik Tok to capture the moment.
One of the weirdest things that happened yesterday was seeing my calendar still stuck in March.
It was Erie AF! It gave me chills, and I was like that’s absolutely insane. It was almost like time was standing still for the last 7 weeks even though it really wasn’t.
So now that we’re ready to move into a new phase I wanted to warn you of a few things.
The world is going to get crazier and crazier as more people need someone to blame and to hate.
I wish everyone could just accept this summer is going to be different and stop trying to make everything the same when absolutely nothing is ever going to be the same again. (Thank the Lord)
The same was worn out, over scheduled, and lacking the basics of a happy healthy family life.
People were being used and things were being loved and now it’s time to get back to the heart of what truly matters in this life and that’s relationships.
I will not live my life in fear and afraid. What if you only had one month left to live? Would you spend it hiding behind a mask and not hugging your friends?!?
I would have as much fun in the homes and yards of the people I love. I would hug harder, laugh louder, and tell the people I love why I love them and I would do it more often.
I will not waste the summer worrying about what I have to lose when I’ve already gained so much of what I truly needed.
Guard your hearts 💕
Guard your minds 💜
And spend time with those who make you better not bitter.
