My girlfriend is going through a breakup. We are talking about putting herself first, and understanding she is worthy of that. She is working on it. She says, "I know such great things are on the way, just have to get through the sticky parts". "Like Winnie the Pooh and honey!" I said.
Yessssss, I love it. Because sticky isn't "stuck". It's kinda gross and hard to deal with, but you can still move through it, just slowly, baby steps. Or just little Piglet size steps, are ok. I was doing an online interview today with one of my faves, Kim Greco (check it out here) and we talked about Entrepreneurs and how we generally kill it at moving through business, we are able to adapt, and resilience is a pre-requisite. She is learning Spanish online and taking an Instagram course. So awesome.
BUT it is also very ok to be moving slowly right now. To not pressure yourself or feel like a "failure" because you aren't running everyday or acing homeschooling. Because you're not making that new website or learning that new skill.
It is ok to move slowly, just "be". Support those you care about when you feel like you can. Care for yourself and your heart. The Universe is teaching us to slow down. We are all in "detox". We don't know how to do that. We are learning, and it is all very sticky. You are you, and that is pretty great. I will hold your hand, sticky fingers and all Xo.
