Sometimes when we’re in overwhelm and shut down, just noticing where we’re at and meeting ourselves with compassion, comfy blankets, and rewatching Beyoncé’s homecoming is the best we can do and that’s ok. Also this is totally me right now. And that’s ok too.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m still showing up for my kids, making the gingerbread houses and seeing the lights as always, even if I’m not “feeling it” in every moment. That’s ok too.
How are you being gentle with yourselves today? Sending you so much love.

Do You Struggle with Trusting Yourself?
Hi there! I've created a free guide to help you Trust Yourself again (or maybe for the first time). This is not a replacement for therapy or working directly with a skilled practitioner, but it will give you support on your journey. Included are journaling prompts, education on how trauma impacts our connection with ourselves, and 5 steps to start trusting yourself more.
