Quarantine has brought out the worst in me at times. Ok a lot of times 😆 But I do believe that’s part of the point.

All my idols of freedom, fun, and flexibility have been exposed and left me shook.

My options have been taken away and replaced with a huge sense of missing out. Enneagram 7 much? 😑 YES.

I’ve felt guilty because I know full well how much harder most people have it.

But today I’m choosing to give myself the grace I hope to give others in remembering a game changing truth.

Everyone’s hard is hard.

Everyone is encountering their own struggles during this time and each hardship is unique.

Many struggles are compounded by pre-quarantine challenges that make these newer ones even heavier.

We would be foolish to compare hardships with one another, especially when we’ll never know the deeper context and background.

Perhaps you’ve taken in stride what was someone else’s breaking point. Perhaps the hardest part of your day was a typical struggle for someone else.

Everyone’s hard is hard. And though “life is full of suffering, it’s also full of the overcoming of it” – Helen Keller

We have much to look forward to in the near future. But in the meantime, imma keep sitting in all the feels and working on mindset over here.

I’d rather be humble with a soft heart than stagnant with a hard heart 💛 Gotta go through it to grow through it!
