Going for a walk today despite the cold and windy conditions will certainly wake me up in all of these!
I think I do this to protect myself from disappointment. Of course, it also robs me of joy.
While it is not exactly excitement, the feeling that we could finally be free of the man-child in the White House is a deep hope and anticipation for me.
Today it is to help new college students pursue their dreams.
This is a good reminder, as I am feeling frightened about the state of the country right now. But fear does not help. There are many beautiful people in my life and I will honor them today.
My friends mean everything to me. We are there for one another. It is enormously comforting to be in community with them.
It is not always wise to open yourself to people who have done you harm in the past. Choose wisely.
All of the firefighters who continue to fight gargantuan blazes in California and the Pacific Northwest. Thank you all!
I loved reading as a child and continue to love it as an adult. Having a new book to read is like Christmas for me!
Yes. I am dealing with a difficult coworker who tends to be very aggressive in email. Rather than trying to fight back, so to speak, today I asked her how she is doing. I am hoping to change the tenor of our relationship by “Seeking first to understand, then to be understood.” Perhaps it will positively impact both our worlds, perhaps not, but it feels better doing it.
My husband and I have used the phrase “Inhabit the mystery” as a way to stay grounded and present when things feel rough. This was a thoughtful piece and it was a good reminder for me.
I am preparing to retire in a year, and while I have been blessed with many friends, a loving husband and fulfilling work, I worry about isolation and loneliness. I have worked for nearly 40 years–and have always found great meaning in helping others. I am feeling afraid that I won’t find anything else and that my days will be empty and long. Letting go is hard and trusting the process is even harder. Thank you all for your comments today.
I am so sorry. I suffered from migraines for years until they finally went away in my late 20’s. I hope yours end for good soon.
Thank you, Sheila, for your encouraging reply.
