THINGS THAT HAVE SOOTHED ME SINCE THE ELECTION

Inspired by @roaringsoftly
  1. Eating what I want, when I want. Sleeping in. Doing yoga. Getting my hair did. Spending time with girlfriends, really connecting.
    If there ever was a time for self care, this is it!
  2. Ongoing group text with my sister, cousins, and aunts. Lady power. Lifting each other up. Validating each other's feelings. Making each other laugh.
    It's been such a comfort to have family at my fingertips, as I am the only one down here in the south.
  3. Music
    Especially strong female voices
  4. Sweeping, doing laundry, taking care of my plants... the little things that bring order to our lives and create just a little bit of clarity within a chaotic week.
  5. Pantsuit Nation on Facebook
    I spent ages on Wednesday reading through positive stories from men and women who supported Hillary. The comments on each story are SO supportive, inclusive, and loving.
  6. This guy
    Has been extra cuddly this week. Maybe he can sense the disturbance, the seismic shift in our reality?
  7. This sky
    The world is still turning and it is still full of beauty
  8. This guy
    Bringing a smile to my face from day one.
  9. This sky
    Breathe in, breathe out, repeat
  10. This guy
    This sweet, sweet dog. Oh, Milo.
  11. This sky
    Lights the fire within me.
