It's Okay to Not Be Okay

Thursday, July 20, 2017

As some of you noticed (I'm greedily happy that some readers noticed I wasn't writing), I've been taking a break from here. The main reason is my husband and I had a personal tragedy a few months back. It took me a few months in finding out that I couldn't keep up with everything in my life. Until I realized it, I continued to push myself to do whatever I could to keep up the facade of normalcy. I'm a therapist, so I know better than doing this, and I know that I would suggest my clients to do differently than what I did, but I continued to push myself.

I don't know when my moment of clarity came, but I realized that I needed to work on myself. I was barely making it daily, even with the simplest tasks. I needed to slow myself down and work from within. Please believe me, you can only kid yourself that you're okay for so long.

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm in this journey with you in simplicity and minimalism. Thank you all for being so wonderful.

Take care of yourselves,

A. Leah
