I can’t believe it has been over a week since posting a blog post! I was super occupied last week on Instagram hosting the #RockYourLilly challenge – which was a huge success. I was so happy to see over 500 posts for the week! So thank you so much if you participated and supported me through that.

But I’m not gonna lie, I am feeling super unsure, uninspired, and unmotivated – like most of us are. Last week the challenge distracted me, but this week I need to face the music.

I wish I could go on with life and be content as normal, but I can’t. Now more than ever it’s difficult to get inspired and find things to write and post about. On the personal side of things, each day seems to bring a new battle and some days are better than others. Some days I am highly motivated – I do my workout, eat, clean, get dressed, and get stuff done. Other days I eat 20 Oreos and cry because I want this all to be over.

It’s interesting to think about considering my life isn’t all that different during all of this. Grant has worked from home for years, and I’ve been doing school online for years. It’s crazy how big of a difference going out and about in the evenings can make to your mental health.

Why am I writing this? To let you know you’re not alone! And even when someone’s life looks amazing online – it may not be. I’m really hoping to get back into the swing of things blog-wise over the next week. Even if I just write one blog post a week, it’s better than none.

Every day I pray for the healing of our country. I pray to God that someday soon things can be as normal as possible. If there is one thing this situation has done for me, it has made me appreciate the little things. I hope you’re all doing well and staying healthy and sane.

Thanks for reading,
