How are you?? I hope you are feeling those pre-weekend happy feelings! I am so thankful that we finally have some light with so many people getting vaccinated. I am feeling so much more at ease knowing that we are getting to whatever the new normal is going to be. This week was a really great week I have to say. I accomplished so much more than I thought I would! I completely combated that feeling of laziness/ambivalence I’ve been having, so I am really proud of myself. That feels good.
Prior to the pandemic, my schedule was chaotic and caused me so much anxiety. No matter what I did to try to create organization within my calendar, it never stuck. Being an entrepreneur who always has various projects going on at the same time made it difficult to maintain a “template” for how I wanted each day to look like. Once I started working from home everyday, I took a step back to look at my work and calendar big picture. I learned that I needed to be ok with plans shifting or getting interrupted. I also realized that I needed to peal back.
It is in a woman’s nature to put herself second, third, fourth, etc. to anyone or anything else. Thankful that a lot of us are starting to put ourselves first! We deserve to be prioritized. There are a number of reasons why, but one of them is that not doing so can affect our physical health in strong ways.
As you have probably noticed, I am spending a lot of time talking about self-care on most my platforms – here, my Instagram and podcast, WITH WHIT. My mental health is a priority. I really want to pass on everything I am learning in hopes that something I am trying and hearing might help you too. Plus, sharing also holds me accountable to keep up the work!
My sister Jade just left – I’m so sad. But, so so so grateful that we were able to spend so much time together. I cherish it. While she was here, I had her on my podcast!! Have you listened yet?? Check it out on Apple or Spotify! Subscribe to my podcast if you haven’t yet!! Would love for you to not miss an ep. Also, rate and write a review. I really want to know what you think. Tell me what you want to hear more or less of.
As you have probably caught on, I love being cozy and comfortable above all else. My favorite part of winter and fall is the fashion – especially outerwear. I curated a little collection of amazing jackets and coats for you! Some of these can even be worn year around when you just want to get snuggly on the couch.
This week was busy and productive. Per the norm right now!! Working to not judge myself on my level of productivity and remind myself that each thing I do, no matter how “big,” is meaningful. My sister, Jade, and her husband, Brett, are in town and staying with use for a couple weeks! It’s so nice to have someone like her to be here to lean on. Someone that really gets you. We recorded a podcast this week and you can catch that on Tuesday on WITH WHIT! The process of COZECO is continues. We are in the website design phase! Can’t wait can’t wait can’t wait.
Not only am I thrilled that it is Friday but also that it’s a three day weekend! YAY! This week, I was very productive and able to tap into my creative side a lot. I love when I can spend time doing that, as it is when I feel happiest in my work. I focused on a lot of things for my lounge line, COZECO including naming all of the pieces in the collection! Did final fittings. Met with marketing agencies. Recorded an awesome podcast. Did therapy. Worked Out. Packed lunches. Wow. So. Much. Exciting. Stuff.
SATURDAYYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyy. What a WEEK! Well actually several weeks!! So much has been happening. As you may have seen on Instagram, COZECO is well underway!! Mark your calendars for APRIL 2021. I can’t express how excited I am. I really hope you enjoy the collection as much as I do!! Stay tuned for more updates!!!
I hope everyone is doing well! This week was a little up and down for me. However, I am trying to be proud of myself for acknowledging and paying attention to my feelings. It is easier to put them on a shelf and ignore. I didn’t do that. One thing that really rocked my world – in the BEST way – was that I decided on a name for my upcoming loungewear collection!!!! COZECO!!!! I am SOOOO excited. In case, y’all missed it…I am working on a loungewear collection. It is my newest baby, and I am so excited to share more of the process and, in the end, the collection with you. SO – I am SHINING for taking care of my needs this week AND for COZECO!
