These past few weeks have been confusing to say the least. And the past few days I have felt more anxiety than I have in years. I’m not sure if it’s because of the unknown, or the fact that I can’t really go home during this time of panic. However, I continually look back to this beautiful photo (shown above) and feel the calmness it brought me on the day I took it.

So you see, the day this photo was taken, I was on my way to see my long distance boyfriend, missed my flight, and felt like I just flat out ruined the day.

Well spoiler alert, the day wasn’t ruined. It was actually almost perfect. I had the most amazing Lyft driver who was calming, full of positive energy, and had the most encouraging words. I have always been a firm believer in the saying “everything happens for a reason” yet I never really seem to practice it.

It wasn’t until Katyria, my lovely driver, told me just that. While I was panicking, forcing back tears, and not knowing if I was going to have to buy a completely new flight, she said “everything happens for a reason babe, but don’t worry we’re going to get you there on time.”

I knew the moment I stepped in the car we wouldn’t make it, but she gave me some positive hope (and just for kicks, I was literally 5 min too late, which is quite impressive considering I woke up 30 min before my flight left).

Anyways, it wasn’t until this moment of peace and serenity that I realized she was completely right. Everything does happen for a reason, and while these times are so confusing and unpredictable, we are all here for a reason and we all have some sort of plan. Most of us (including me) have no idea what that plan is, but we can try to go with the flow and enjoy every bit of life we can get.

That’s it for today, but stay tuned because I promise I have lots of blog ideas in this very weird time of social distancing.

Stay safe, wash your hands, and always be happy, my loves.
