Wow, can you believe it's already August? It's hard to believe we have officially spent half of this year locked up indoors. I truly hope you are all doing well and staying safe/healthy.
Full disclosure: this year has been hard for me. It's been a roller coaster of unexpected twists and turns. What was supposed to be my last few months with my family at the University of Maryland turned into rushed Zoom calls and an improper goodbye. What I thought would be an excited transition to grad school in Boston was a battle of uncertainty as I waited to hear whether I would be having classes and what they would look like.
Things are starting to settle down for me -- and I hope for you too. I've adjusted a bit to this "new normal" At least for the next few months, I know what my life is going to look like and I'm prepared to meet the challenges that will come. Still though, it's become increasingly obvious to me that self-care is more important than ever! You may recall that last month I started July Journaling challenge where I challenged myself to journal every day of the month.
Did you join me? How did it go for you?
This month I'm continuing my self-care challenge with an August Affirmations challenge. Check out the affirmations I'm going to tell myself below. I encourage you to use these or create your own and start taking better care of yourself this month!
