This post is slightly different from my others. Lately, I've been feeling down. I've ruled out the quarantine as a cause. I think my feelings have a lot to do with how those around me are coping with quarantine.
Naturally, I want everyone to be happy, even though I know that's not the case. My boyfriend doesn't seem to be coping that well with the quarantine, which is having an impact on us. Sometimes, I just find myself thinking this isn't how I wanted my quarantine to go.
But, I find joy that I have the power to control my life and shape things the way I want them to be. I am fortunate that I can work from home. I've been able to self-quarantine and adjust to my surroundings. Also, I have Field Day Press.
This week has been emotionally draining for me in my personal life and work life, but I'm thankful for resiliency. Not mention, I'm glad virtual therapy is an option during this pandemic. I thank everyone for their support of Field Day Press. Although I was feeling down, I'm not out. I'm still here. To all my writing friends, express yourself! Put your work out there. Keep writing and know that Field Day Press supports you.
