Every week into this pandemic feels like another beginning of a new phase to me. Not necessarily a cut and dry phase… more like what you feel after experiencing trauma and grief – you have various feelings that will continue to come and go in waves over time.
I was able to manage my anxiety better last week, and felt myself surrender to the situation and the changes it brought. But I still felt paralyzed and overwhelmed about how to move forward after losing significant income, etc.
This week, I see more clearly, at least today I do. I can envision the beginning of a new plan, and have a little more hope, a little more confidence, a little more faith.
If I were to use 3 emojis to describe my current feelings, they would be these: 🙏💪🏽😫
