i hope you are inspired + reflection

DEAR BLOG FAMILY
I feel a deep connection with my blog family. Forever each one of you has a place in my heart. Logging into blogger tonight I noticed a few more posts written than normal. This made me ever so excited. Although we are going through hard times it seems as we are all finding ways to feel connected again. I do hope that each one of you finds the inspiration to walk back to your roots and blog.

There isn't much I'd like to say other than keep inspired and creative. I've done a lot of journaling, newsletter writing, and reflecting via naps recently. It's been so beneficial to slow down and feel like I am a teen blogger during the months of summer when I was job and responsibility-less.

MY FEELINGS
My feelings have been all over the place. I feel like I imagine many of you do anxious, about the situation we are going through. To combat those feelings uncertainty I am keeping busy by surrounding myself around people who are uplifting and avoiding the news. I cringe at most talk about what it going on- call it avoidance but this is saving my mental health. 

I've also been feeling like a caretaker as of recently. Maybe that comes with being a female and being surrounded by younger children. Simply want to help them and make it better. One of the little girls at the household I am staying at has a hard time with conflict. I feel like she is easily misunderstood for she simply wants a little more attention when it comes to her needs. 

I am like her too. As a child, I resorted to crying to show that I needed a little extra support or attention. If you want attention as an adult crying isn't a bad idea people normally don't know how to handle it and there forward the world is yours. just saying 

FOOD
Becuase of all the time I've had, today I have been able to cook a few meals. Cooking has always been something I love doing to pass the time. I made cream of mushroom soup and it taste like childhood. As a child, my mother would heat up the canned kind and I simply remember really liking it. To be able to make a healthier version of it made my inner child so happy.

  5. Ah, Vanessa, visiting your blog always feels like a little piece of home in the blogger world. I also always get excited when I see more activity happening in the blogosphere, and miss the days when I had more time to devote to this part of my life.

    Yes, the news can be really scary and I completely understand your staying away with it. May the Lord give you surpassing peace in the midst of all of this. And- can you by any chance send that cream of mushroom soup recipe? ;) It sounds INCREDIBLE.

    Love your posts ♥

  6. I've finally told myself that I have permission to turn off anything about what's going on. It was interesting at first, then it got to be anxiety inducing, then just overwhelming. I have enjoyed "seeing" more people around than usual, though, and it makes me smile :)
