words I need to hear - student project

day one:

I have been feeling so much anxiety lately, so the word comfort came to mind... like the blanket that I loved to tatters when I was a child.

day two:

I have a pained relationship with the word "no"—so I chose to draw her less serious younger sister, "nope." Can you make the logo bigger? Nope. Can you get this to me by tomorrow? Nope. But probably yes.

day three:

I live an entire day by 10am. I needed to remind myself that it's ok to slow down. Way down.

day five:
I have so many projects to tackle right now and am extremely overwhelmed. I chose to remind myself that I can do this. I have done this. And I could probably do it in my sleep... if I wasn't so exhausted.

day six:
I need to set the bar lower and remember that if it doesn't go as planned, it's ok.

day seven:
I give myself permission to ignore everything for a few minutes... or longer, if necessary.

day eight:
It's ok to scream into a pillow... right? Asking for a friend.

day nine:
This seems like the perfect way to follow yesterday's sentiment.

Wishful thinking?
