Birthday do-over 🌺 so yesterday was my birthday and I’m usually all sparkly-excited for the day. I was all prepared with plans, a blog post, and a list of things I wanted to do. Instead? I had a terrible mental health day - like a wobbly, weepy birthday. Just one of those days nothing goes right, nothing feels right. I was, in a word, a mess.
Then somewhere in the rubble of my meltdown, among the crying and journaling; among my own excavation of these feelings; among the constant, loving support of my friends and family, I found the energy to get dressed. Then the desire to swipe on some power lipstick, and finally the motivation get on with the day. I’m so thankful to have the support that I do so I could navigate my depressive mood my own way, fully held and loved along the way.
Now, as my husband and I head out on a kiddo-free birthday getaway, I’m so lucky to get a second chance and birthday do-over. I did the work, now I get to have the fun! I did end up writing that blog post if you want to check it out - link in the bio ☺️ Happy Saturday, beauties 🌺 at Oakland, California
