It’s been a long week, with a lot of ups and downs. I feel like that applies to the last three months. The amateur astrologist in me wants to chalk it up to all the planetary movements (Venus Retrograde at the beginning of the year, Mercury Retrograde in February, and now Mars Retrograde until May). The existentialist in me wants to shrug and say “That’s life.” Either way, it’s been a turbulent stretch that’s found me often lacking in confidence and grasping for something—anything—to anchor me through the difficulty.
And then finally Wednesday night, after I welcomed all my angst, stress, and anxiety with a bottle of wine, I decided to apply a fail-safe strategy: one day at a time. I started Thursday with a prayer “Let today, be today” and what do you know, I ended the day more relaxed than I’d been in weeks.
