Unpack To Grow

Life happens, ya’ll. I know because life has really been giving me the business lately! LOL!

I thought about this recently when my homegirl told me she hadn’t unpacked from a trip that was 6 months ago! Does that sound like you? Me too (sometimes). The thing is, when we don’t unpack from the past, we can’t make room for the future. I know it sounds crazy but it’s true! When we gloss over something big that happened to us, those unresolved feelings lurk around in our minds and pop up later, when we least expect it. No matter how “over it” you think you are, take the time to make 100% sure. Check in with your sister circle, organize a let-it-all-hang-out girlfriends retreat like I did, or just straight-up get some therapy. Yes, happy hour can help a little (LOL!) but get you some therapy too, girl.

Me, I’ve been going through a divorce, a move and even more stuff I don’t even wanna talk about. I’ll tell you one thing though, I’m SO thankful for my therapist and my support circle. All of them are helping me unpack my major life changes so I can move on and keep my emotional baggage to a minimum.

Take care of yourself and get your stuff unpacked!

- XOXO, Wasidah
