right now i am right on the edge.
tomorrow will be the first time in about 4 months that i will be around other people as i return to work & i don’t know how i’m going to handle it.
i’m well aware that i am one of the lucky ones who was not only able to keep their job, but do their job from home throughout this pandemic.
i’m lucky, grateful & beyond happy to work for a company where my bosses & teammates supported me working from home to protect my dad who is in a high-risk category.
but i have not been out in the world since the middle of april – basically the only thing i ever go out for is our grocery curbside pickup – & i’m kind of nervous.
not about other people or about returning to work – but about myself.
i was emotionally stressed going into this pandemic & i’m hoping i’ll be able to make it through tomorrow without melting down!
so in preparation, i am taking this evening to relax with a long, hot shower, listening to all my favourite songs, talking to my people on the phone & getting to bed early so that i can have my best shot at conquering tomorrow.
i even picked out one of my nicer dresses, washed all my face masks & put my favourite clear quartz in my purse – just for extra good vibes!
i’m also repeating this mantra over & over & i know it’s one that will be running through my mind tomorrow as well… even though i am pretty excited to get back to a little bit of normalcy, my friends & my teammates.
‘i know what i am doing. i will be okay.’
