urning 45 in quarantine has given me lots of time for introspection.

So here goes! In honor of turning 35 45 (ahem), what I’ve learned in quarantine and beyond:

Beauty, money, power– things we often place high value upon in society are worthless without your health. Haven’t we all learned this?
I’ve learned I can grieve and be grateful at the same time. And wow, how interesting and odd that is.
I’ve learned that when things feel out of control, to focus on what you CAN control. It’s empowering when you can switch the inner-dialogue from victim to driver of the bus.
