This next season is going to be so so busy and I am equally as excited, as I am petrified for it to be here— full of weddings and events and photo shoots and styling and my first ever SoWa Market! (Yay!) All of this sweetness on top of my day job, being a good wife, life etc.!
I have come to learn that busyness and my brain do not mix well. My anxiety takes root in control and therefore when things feel fast and out of control, my brain becomes very afraid- cue monster anxiety. Therefore, I have to carefully prepare for these seasons by creating slowness; walks on the beach, morning prayers, daily reading, good sleep, a thoughtful diet, phone calls with sisters and tea dates with friends.. these are all a must-do, just as important as the other stuff, for my sanity and the relationships around me. It’s not selfish, it’s survival.
So, this afternoon I will not think about the one million things on my mind— there is grace and time for that tomorrow. Instead, I will rest, maybe take a walk, probably dye a couple of dresses I’ve been intending to dye, and just be still with myself + Jesus + the sea. I hope you can find a few minutes to do so too, you won’t regret it.
