Hello beautiful creatures! In today’s video I talk about where I’ve been, share a personal life update, and talk about gratitude. I’ve missed you all but currently find it difficult to film because of my health and stress.

Below are the journals that I mentioned in this video that I purchased for to help myself remember positive things in life. Gratitude Journaling, and journaling in general, have been life changing for me.
- Clever Fox Gratitude Journal with Prompts
- 2022 Sun Moon & Stars Datebook
- Less Bitchin’ More Witchin’
- Achiever Planner 2 (Dave purchased this as a gift for me)
I’m doing the best I can to take care of myself and my mental health. It frustrates me that I feel so mentally exhausted after work I don’t want to touch my computer. I’ve been struggling to film videos, which sucks because I still have content ideas and things I’d love to share with you.
I realize that I’ve been on the struggle bus though, because I haven’t been doing as much personal maintenance as I normally love to do. Until yesterday, I hadn’t done my nails in almost a month. Until today, I hadn’t plucked and trimmed my eyebrows. Until Saturday, I hadn’t dermaplaned my face in over a month.
Right now, most of what I do in the evenings after work and working out consists of me playing with Nyx & Amaya. Dave and I cook together. I’ve been coloring, journaling, and sometimes reading. I also started learning a new language. I’m trying to keep myself engaged, even when I don’t feel like I can do things I normally love.
I’m grateful for my friends, for video chatting with people who are states away, and my therapist. They all help keep me moving forward, rather than sinking into despair.
How are you?

Sounds like you’re doing your best. That’s all any of us can do. It was really nice seeing an update from you! I’m sorry you’re struggling. You’re not alone. Stay safe. 💜🧡💛🌙
I understand what you mean by the struggle bus. I hope we can both disembark soon. I am holding good thoughts for you and wishing you the very best.
