We seem to be getting into a groove this weekend and I’m hoping it sticks for this new normal. I finally got out of the house by myself Friday and it was so refreshing and long overdue for my sanity. I continue to find more space for compassion. The more Compassion I have towards myself, the more it trickles into other areas ... compassion towards my son, my husband, friends, family and with that comes a new level of peace. In waves. We are all becoming more aware at this time in isolation. Aware of habits, privileges, relationships, needs, routine, loneliness. It’s like we were pushed into a big bucket of change. All of us, all at once. -
Finding myself in the present moment, allowing everything that is going on right then to be, just as it is, has given me relief. It isn’t easy, but even if I can do it several times throughout the day, I find it reassuring that in this moment, we are okay.
