The Gratitude Diaries

The Gratitude Diaries


As the days pass, I think we are all starting to see and feel little cracks in our personalities.⁠ ⁠

Yesterday, I had a LOT of tears.

As Zoe Foster Blake calls it "A Corona cry" (I think there'll be many CC's to come from all of us just quietly) 😣 and it wasn't something particularly large that tipped me over, it was just the straw that broke the camel's back..... 🐪⁠ ⁠

SIDE NOTE: Did you know that a camel with two humps is called a "Bactrian"?! (The things you learn when you're scrolling over emojis 😂🐫) ⁠ ⁠

I digress..... actually, this takes me to another story about an emu..... or ME being an emu.

My friend Joe thinks I get distracted easily by shiny things..... so he always calls me an "emu."

Oops, another tangent! 😝⁠ ⁠ I love tangents. I love the word "tangent" (I love lamp.) 😬⁠ ⁠

OK.... focus..... GRATITUDE.⁠ ⁠

We are ALL going to have moments where we have a "Corona cry.." ⁠

For me, it was an automatic payment that drained my bank account, after I'd made a few online sales which gave me hope that my brand still mattered. ⁠ ⁠ I lost a bit of hope.⁠ ⁠

BUT in times where we feel lost and hopeless, it is important to remember what we DO have.⁠ ⁠

For me, gratitude is:⁠ ⁠

My home 🏡⁠

Food 🍞⁠

Family 👪⁠

Friends (who FaceTime) 👯⁠

Knowing that we are ALL in this together. 🌏⁠ ⁠

I know some days are harder than others, but once you've had your CC 😭 for they day.

Get up. Show up.

Remember what you're grateful for (even if its just ONE tiny thing). ⁠ ⁠

Write it down.⁠ ⁠ I really do think we should be journalling (pen to paper - its cathartic) during these times and look back on this monumental piece of history in years to come....⁠ ⁠ We will be grateful we did. ⁠

And we will be grateful for what we had.⁠ ⁠

Wishing you a beautiful weekend Bombshells.⁠ ⁠

How is everyone feeling? 🌸⁠ ⁠

Who's doing what to pass the time? 💁🏼⁠ ⁠
