It's July... SMH
Hey Girl! It's Allyson...
I looked, and I haven't written anything since FEBRUARY.
Hopefully, you saw my posts on IG or listened to my podcast where I talked about how I was dealing with Coronavirus. It hasn't been easy... at all.
On the last day of February, I quit my teaching job, right before all the schools were closed. I look back on that decision and I'm confident that it was the right thing for me to do. My husband works from home and my twin toddlers are home now that the daycares have been closed. There's no way I would've been able to teach and monitor 3-year-olds and stay sane at the same time.
I don't even have a job and I'm still trying to stay sane in this house. I'm an extrovert, so telling me I have to stay inside all day and come out rarely is draining. When I've been in the house too long, I'm super grumpy and snappy. But when I drive to the store, blast my music, and let the wind blow through my fro, I feel re-energized.
We also moved about an hour from where we were, so that's been an adjustment as well. Moving during a pandemic? Check. lol
During the past 5 months, I took a BIG step back to analyze everything I've been doing. Not only that, but I also allowed God to really do work on my heart, my motives, and my mind. It's far from over, but I'm thankful for it. I want to be sure as I continue to push Hey Girl! Intl., I'm doing it from a pure, healed, and strong place in God. I'm a believer that only what you do for Christ will last, and so I'm making sure than whatever comes out of my mouth or from my hands is what He wants me to say and do.
That being said... I'm BACK! Ready to chat it up, encourage you to be your best self, and to love the woman you were created to be.
I'm here for you... and I ain't going nowhere.
