What I'm Learning
Hi, I'm Chelsea! I’m on a mission to help you find joy and goodness in every day.
On this blog we talk about the big things (like chasing dreams) and the small things (like what books we're reading) because happiness comes in all sizes.
I woke up this morning to Jack yelling, “Hold you! I’m scared! Hold you!”
I’m not sure if he had a nightmare, or a noise woke him up, or what happened, but he snuggled his little self alllll the way pressed up against me and flung his arms around my neck like his life depended on it. It was really, really sweet.
And really, really, uncomfortable.
Just when I thought he’d fallen back asleep, I’d try to readjust, just for him to yell “I’m scared! Hold you please!”
So we sat like that in the dark for the better part of an hour, my arms falling asleep, until the sun came up and the day didn’t look so scary.
And while we sat there, I found myself feeling emotional. Because really – isn’t that how we all feel right now?
Scared. Waiting. Needing the future to look less scary before we start our day.
It’s okay to be scared. It’s okay to need something or someone bigger than you right now. It’s okay if blind faith is the only thing getting you through this. It’s okay if it’s hard for you to have any faith in anything right now.
I don’t really have a way to wrap this up. I just wanted to write today. I just wanted to say that I’m scared, too. I’m anxious, too. I want to climb in bed and have someone hold me until the sun comes up, too.
We’re all in this together, no matter how alone you feel right now. We’re all feeling the same feelings.
Remember: Show kindness. Reach out. Allow yourself to feel the feelings. Give yourself grace. So. Much. Grace.
Sending you so much love. xo
