Hello! What a wild time in the world. I want to take a moment to just share that I tested positive for COVID-19 when the shows and our world began to come to a halt. I am inspired to share this to share my experience and hopefully be another voice to take this virus seriously. . I immediately went into isolation and my symptoms were slightly different than many of the tell tale cases. I did not run a fever, ever, and I never lost my sense of taste/smell. I knew something wasn’t right, I developed extremely bad body aches and eventually breathing struggles, I had many symptoms of a moderate cold. There isn’t a lot of information out there on the front end, and once you test positive, if you are not in dire condition there isn’t much more information to be found. It is still the NOVEL Coronavirus and every day there is more information on what and how and why. It is also manifesting so differently in different people. . I feel lucky to have had access to testing when I did, but I must say that even once you receive a positive test result there isn’t much you can do but isolate yourself and monitor your symptoms diligently. I have friends who are experiencing insanely difficult symptoms and who had a very different experience than I have had. I daily send energy and meditate to send love to everyone who is really really facing horrid, terrifying struggles with this pandemic. . I am resting and grateful at home. My symptoms were manageable at home and I am in terrific spirits and finding new ways to connect with myself and others, to stay in shape, to allow my body time to heal and rest, not only from the virus, but from a busy year of working. I am reading and painting and loving and living as fully as I can in this moment while enjoying a deep, rich stillness that I have not experienced before in my life. As of Saturday I have officially entered my Saturn Return and im really feeling the lessons and the silver lining of this unbelievable time on our earth for myself personally. . I send so much love to you all out there. Chin up. Do your part. Send love. DONATE. Rest. Breathe. Break your habits. Grow. Learn. Find Stillness. Tune in.
