during the middle of summer, i was feeling a bit down. i really was craving normalcy which for me typically includes tons of travel, live music and quality time with friends and family. more than anything, i was tired of having the same conversations over and over again about the pandemic. while covid is absolutely real, there are millions of other things going on. and as someone who hates small talk, i was sick of answering the same questions.
my friend elisa sent me a quote that she said made her think of me. upon reading it, i smiled because it was so fitting. and not only did it fit my vibe during quarantine, it fits my vibe year around.

i am someone who really values meaningful connection. during quarantine, i have had to be so much more intentional about how to factor those deep conversations into my week. while during covid, there has been nonstop conversation about physical health, i wanted to take some time to highlight both mental and emotional health.
have you been carving out time and space to have deep conversations with people around you? are the people around you capable of depth?
my mental and emotional health tanks cannot be filled without depth. what are your mental and emotional health needs?
