Happy Tuesday, Wanderers!
Yesterday, I shared how I’m getting back to myself and resetting for quarter 4. Today, I thought I would share exactly where I’ve been.
Seriously, this is getting a little embarrassing now.
Okay, so where have I been?
I had so many plans and expectations for the last few months, scratch that, for 2020, but honestly life.
June was HEAVY. With all the craziness going on in the world, I needed to take a step back and regroup. I don’t think I opened any social media the entire month because it was just too much to deal with.
You can only take in so much bad news before it starts to affect physically, mentally, and emotionally. Yall. I was going through it.
I took a step back and put some intentional time filling my cup.
You can find some self-care tips here and here.
Let’s get into July!
Well, July was the month of new beginnings and transitions.
Okay, actually, I think I may need to backtrack a bit.
So if you don’t know, I recently graduated (in May) from grad school and ya girl has been on the hunt for a job.
Now listen, that’s a whole ‘nother story in itself and I actually might write a whole blog post about it.
Sidebar: Let me know if yall want to hear about my job hunt experience during COVID. Trust me, I have so much to share lol.
To make it short, after months of searching, I unexpectedly received a job offer and within a couple of weeks had to move to a new state to begin my career as a speech-language pathologist.
Not so bad right?
Well, the day I moved in, I received a call that my start date was pushed up by two weeks so I only had a few days, literally 3 or 4 days to unpack and get settled before I had to report to work.
Yall. Listen. This was me.
So, July, and honestly August and September (and maybe even a little bit of October) were spent adjusting to my life as finally not a student, but an adult and career professional, and yall it has honestly been a journey.
Some days, I still feel slightly overwhelmed and very lost in the sauce, but I am grateful nonetheless because a few months ago none of this seemed possible or likely.
And while I am still trying to develop my routine and get settled into this new chapter, I am excited to finally feel like my cup is somewhat full enough to pour into each of you.
I missed you. I missed Twenty.
One final thing…I can’t promise there won’t be another long break, but I can promise that I am ready to show up and I am excited to share so many things with you.
As always, praying health, wellness, and peace over each of you.
Love + Light,
