I’ve always been a solution kind of girl. Perhaps that was the hardest thing when coronavirus really hit the UK back in March: it was an unsolvable thing, 100% out of my control. At first I felt like crawling into a hole until it was all over. I panicked, I cried, I felt numb and scared. I know we’re all going through our own rollercoasters of emotion, and you are absolutely not alone. I have a wedding calligraphy business as well as this blog – and closing it was a really scary thing to do.
And I realised we all process in our own time. I saw a few insta posts about positivity when I wasn’t quite ready for it yet; I saw other businesses coming up with amazing new concepts, pivoting to try and ride the wave – and I felt helpless. It’s OKAY to take a little longer to process this. It’s new, it’s unknown and we’ll all react in a very personal way – and that’s FINE.
