I'm trying something new during the COVID-19 crisis, weekly blogging. Bare with me while I figure this out. I've always been more of a listener than a talker and even less of a writer. I'm a very private, introverted person, but the people who have let me in, let me see how their brain works are the ones with have impacted me the greatest. I'm attempting to do that here: be vulnerable and let you all in. To my entrepreneurial friends, I want to help.
The past three weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions. I snap back and forth like being catapulted back and forth from slingshot to slingshot. I never stop. My brain is racing between "I'm going to be ok" and "f*" followed by a deep panic into the worst case scenario abyss. I appear to be jerking quickly back and forth between the two every few minutes.
After a few days of these exhausting exchanges in in my head, I found relief in acknowledging that I do not have control over this virus and the effects on our people, community or economy. I do not have control over the government shutting down our businesses. I do not have control over my friends' worry. I do not have control over what happens next in the economy.
I found temporary relief in acknowledging that I do not have control over these outcomes, I do have control over sticking to my values.
This is a time to go back to basics. What is important to me?
How can I spend my energy, right now adhering to my beliefs?
When I can't make a decision, go back to my values.
It seems so personal to write about my values, so personal. Fear of judgement floods my brain, but I know that this is who you already see.
I value family and loyalty. Love & be loved.
I value community. Caring for our own. Be of Service.
I value respecting the rules.
I value moderation. Waste not.
I value hard work and tenacity.
I value independence and creativity.
Today is a new day and fresh start. I cannot control COVID-19 and it ravaging my friends, our communities, our country, our world. Today, I will mindfully act adhering to my values. I'm starting with publishing this blog.

Shortlettes are generously sized to hug but not squeeze your curves. They are not compression and do not feel like nylons/hosiery, shapewear, bike shorts, or compression pants. Shortlettes are simply comfortable. They are not made to be tight, feel constricting, shape, pinch, or bind. The longer lengths allows for maximum chafe protection and comfort.
Correct Fit Guidelines:
✔️ Waist should not roll
✔️ Body should glide comfortably against the skin
✔️ Legs should not ride up while walking
Signs of Incorrect Fit:
✖️ Baggy crotch (too big)
✖️ Running at the seams/Wears to fast (too small)
✖️ Slides Down (too small)
✖️ Legs ride up (too small)
Which is the best fit?
Under 5'4" - High Thigh, Athletic, or Classic Styles
Plus Size - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace
Apple Shaped - Fusion, Classic, or Original Lace
* Order the size in-between your waist and hip measurement. I.e. Waist 3X + Hip XL = Order 2X
Pear Shaped - Try them all!
Hourglass - Lace or High Thigh
Slender - High Thigh or Athletic
If the Shortlette is not baggy but slides down, it is probably a size too small. It needs to sit higher towards the natural waist in the back to stay put during normal activity.
