i like to think i'm a pretty chill girl mostly, and when i rang in the new year three months ago i made it a priority to continue working on my chillness. i let so much roll off my back these days, and it feels really really good. that said, anxiety courses through the veins of many generations on both sides of my family, so sometimes i can't help being a little fish swimming upstream. the past couple of weeks have presented challenges in the form of unexplained medical situations (anyone else ever suffered from a random hemorrhage inside their eyeball?), and unfavorite professional responsibilities (standing at the head of a boardroom asking for a bunch of money). the fact that i'm taking a moment to blog is a good indicator that those challenges have been conquered, anxieties have been quelled, and it's friday evening- hallelujah!
driving home from work each night the past two weeks i'd punch through my radio presets searching for pharrell's happy which was undoubtedly on multiple stations; i think most of america is treating it as our personal anthem right now. this helped too... i find this campaign so powerful, i get choked up any time the commercial airs! so yes, lots of beauty in this life. allowing myself to focus on the positive and to be proud of the good work i do has brought me to a place that i don't plan on leaving any time soon.
have a lovely, HAPPY weekend!
